UPDATE, 7:58: Snyder will not travel with the team to Washington, D.C. and will remain hospitalized in Seattle.

DEVELOPING: Rays pitching coach Kyle Snyder has been hospitalized in the Seattle area dealing with a "personal medical issue," the team said.

The Rays said no other information would be released at this time, and that Snyder and his family ask for privacy at this time.

Snyder, 40, was promoted from Triple-A to the big-league job this season, and is the youngest pitching coach in the majors.

Snyder pitched parts of five seasons in the majors with the Royals (2003-06) and Red Sox (2006-08) and 11 professionally. He spent the entire 2007 in the majors with Boston and was on the World Series roster.

He started his coaching career with the Rays in 2012 with short-season Hudson Valley and worked his way up through the system with many of the current players, serving as pitching coordinator in 2014 and then moving to Duram in 2015.

Snyder graduated from Sarasota's Riverview High, and lives in the Sarasota area with his wife, Victoria, and son, Luke.

Snyder missed Saturday's game, with the team saying he wasn't feeling well. Bullpen coach Stan Boroski handled his duties, and will do so again today.
