Brian Schneider Announces Retirement

Veteran catcher Brian Schneider has announced his retirement from baseball, Mandy Housenick of The Morning Call reports.  Schneider, 36, was a free agent after his one-year, $800K contract with the Phillies expired after last season.

A fifth-round pick of the Expos in the 1995 amateur draft, Schneider spent his entire 13-year Major League career in the NL East, playing for the Expos, Nationals, Mets and Phillies.  He posted a career slash line of .247/.320/.369 in 3570 plate appearances with 67 home runs and twice (2003-04) led the National League in caught-stealing percentage.  According to Baseball Reference, Schneider made a little over $22.42MM over his career.
