Snead, a Santa Fe High School standout player, was 2-0 with a 2.01 earned-run average at Triple-A Buffalo. The 26-year-old, selected in the 10th round of the 2016 draft out of UF, struck out 43 batters in 31.1 innings for Buffalo.

Snead became the 77th former UF player to make a MLB roster. Of those, 24 played under current head coach Kevin O’Sullivan. 

The Gators’ 2016 MLB draft class has five players on major league rosters: pitcher A.J. Puk (Athletics), Dane Dunning (Rangers), Pete Alonso (Mets), Shaun Anderson (Orioles) and Snead. Scott Moss, Logan Shore and Buddy Reed are in the minor leagues from that class.
