Phillies, Schnedier Close to Deal
FOXSports.com reports the Phillies are close to a new contract for backup catcher Brian Schneider.
Schneider hit .176 last season, but worked well with rookie right-hander Vance Worley, who finished third in National League Rookie of the Year voting.
The Phillies acquired right-hander Adam Worthington from the Arizona Diamondbacks as the player to be named to complete the Mike Zagurski trade. Worthington went 4-4 with a 4.48 ERA in 45 relief appearance for Class A Visalia in 2011.
