Schneider caught Vance Worley in 18 of his 25 appearances last season, but don't call him Worley's personal catcher. Manager Charlie Manuel hates the term. He said Schneider is starting because Sunday is a day game following a night game, and because Monday is a day game in Philadelphia.
"I've heard people say they like the catcher, they like the catcher," Manuel said. "But lose some games and see what happens."
