As expected, catcher Brian Schneider has signed a one-year contract with the Phillies.

Schenider will make $800,000 with the possibility of another $200,000 in incentives for games played. That is a paycut from last season when he made $1.5 million.

Schneider, 34, made 36 starts for the Phillies last season and the team went 28-8 (.777), including 27-3 (.900) in his first 30 starts. From May 7 through September 6, the Phillies went 19-0 in Schneider’s starts.

Schneider batted .176 with two home runs and nine RBI in 41 games.
