Snell’s long awaited free agency decision has now come to an end with less than ten days before Opening Day. With Snell off the board, it now leaves Jordan Montgomery team-less of the Scott Boras clients.


Snell, 31, will now call San Francisco home for at least a year. Coming off of adding some new hardware to his resume, where he pitched to a 2.25 ERA.
