OAKLAND -- The Baltimore Orioles obtained catcher Chris Snyder from the Los Angeles Angels for right-hander Rob Delaney on Sunday.

The Orioles were looking for some depth at the spot after Taylor Teagarden went on the 15-day disabled list because of a dislocated left thumb following Saturday's game in Oakland.

Snyder has spent nine years in the Majors, most recently with the Houston Astros last year.

Delaney has appeared in five Major League games with the Minnesota Twins and Tampa Bay Rays. He last appeared in the big leagues in 2011.
