Brian Schneider Contract?

Free-agent catcher Brian Schneider and the Philadelphia Phillies agreed Tuesday to a two-year contract.

Schneider, who spent the last two seasons with the New York Mets, will be a backup to Carlos Ruiz for the NL champion Phillies.
"We feel Brian is ideal for our ballclub," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "He's a guy that we would feel comfortable with playing for an extended period of time, if needed."

What does Brian Schneider contract say, how much money is he going to get paid?

Schneider will make $1.25 million in 2010 and $1.5 million in '11, according to the contract.
Great signing.

Schneider batted .218 last season in 59 games with the Mets, although he hit .382 (13-for-34) in his final 13 games. He missed 41 games earlier in the season with a strained back muscle.
He bats lefthanded and can handle the bat.

Schneider is a career .251 hitter in 10 seasons with the Expos, Nationals and Mets.
Schneider hails from Allentown, Pa.
He's a fine defensive player that could play for an extended stretch if Ruiz gets hurt.
