He has a 38-53 record with 4.81 ERA in 803 innings pitched during his Major League career. In 2011, he briefly retired, but came back later that year and pitched for the Dodgers Triple-A affiliate Albuquerque, where he posted a 1-2 record.

Snell was flat out nasty early in his career, and was a solid player on some pathetic Pirates teams. He isn't too far removed from the major leagues, so he can be a huge asset to the Ducks in their run to repeat. Hopefully, Snell can regain his dominance for early in his career.
