Let's round up the latest minor league signings:
- The Houston Astros signed former first round selection (18th overall) outfielder Brad Snyder to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training, writes Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle. The Astros later confirmed the signing, via Twitter. The 29-year-old Snyder has only 37 plate appearances at the major league level.
- Left-handed pitcher Joe Torres re-signed with the Colorado Rockies on a minor league deal, according to the Pacific Coast League transactions page. Torres, the 10th overall draft selection in 2000, has never made it the majors in his career. Despite all his struggles in 11 minor league seasons, the 29-year-old posted career-best numbers in 2011.
- The Milwaukee Brewers re-signed signed free agent catcher Patrick Arlis to a minor league pact, according to the Pacific Coast League transactions page. Arlis only has 174 plate appearances since joining the Brewers organization in 2009; and only 11 last season.
