UPDATE: It’s a done deal. Heyman reports that Schneider will make $800,000 next season with the chance at an additional $200,000 with incentives. He doesn’t specify, but we can assume this is strictly a one-year deal.
We learned yesterday that the two sides were close to an agreement. No word on the exact contract terms, but Schneider earned $1.50 million in 2011 in the final year of a two-year, $2.75 million contract.
Schneider, who turns 35 later this month, batted .176/.246/.256 with two homers, nine RBI and a .502 OPS over 139 plate appearances this season while throwing out a career-low 13 percent (3-for-23) of would-be basestealers. He’ll serve as Carlos Ruiz‘s seldom-used backup again in 2012.
