Schneider will likely back up for starter Carlos Ruiz. Ruiz played well for the Phillies last season, especially in the postseason, and has a good relationship with his pitchers. Schneider is an excellent clubhouse player who has spent his entire career in the NL East, a total of 10 seasons with the Expos, Nationals, and Mets.
