The Phillies have placed backup catcher Brian Schneider on the 15-day disabled list with a strained Achilles tendon. He has played in 7 games for the Phillies this season and he is 3 of 18 (.167 avg, .452 OPS) with 3 runs scored. The Phillies have called up 34-year old righty swinging catcher Paul Hoover to replace Schneider as the backup catcher. Hoover has played in 19 games this season in AAA-ball and he is 18 of 67 (.269 avg, .741 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 1 homer and 8 RBIs. He has played in 31 games in his major league career and he is 20 of 78 (.256 avg, .544 OPS) with 4 runs scored and 6 RBIs. But, he has whiffed 26 times in the majors with only 2 walks as he has questionable plate discipline. Look for Carlos Ruiz’ workload to increase until Schneider is ready to return to action.
