Phillies near deal to bring back Schneider
PHILADELPHIA -- FOXSports.com reports that the Phillies are close to a deal to re-sign backup catcher Brian Schneider, who will turn 35 on Nov. 26. Schneider hit .176 this past season but worked well with rookie right-hander Vance Worley, who finished third in National League Rookie of the Year Award voting.

It is believed the Phils also had interest in backup catcher Matt Treanor, but his signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers was announced on Tuesday.
