The Texas Rangers completed a trade with the San Francisco Giants, retaining left-hander Ben Snyder in exchange for LHP Edwin Escobar.

Snyder had been selected from the Giants by the Baltimore Orioles in the Rule 5 draft on Dec. 10. The Orioles in turn trade Snyder to the Rangers as the player to be named in the Kevin Millwood-Chris Ray trade the day before.

Snyder, who had a 9.00 ERA in six appearances this spring, did not make the Rangers' Opening Day roster. He therefore had to be offered back to the Giants for $25,000, half of the original draft price. Thursday's deal allows Texas to keep Snyder, who was assigned to Double-A Frisco.

Escobar is in his second professional season. He went 2-5 with a 5.00 ERA in 13 apperances with the Arizona League Rangers in 2009.
