After 13 years, Brian Schneider has officially called it a career, according to the Allentown Morning Call.

The retirement comes as no surprise, as the Northampton, Pa., native struggled to stay healthy the past two seasons with the Phillies. In three seasons overall in red pinstripes, Schneider appeared in 122 games and batted .212 with eight homers and 31 RBIs.

The 36-year-old spent most of his career in the Nationals organization. He made his debut for the Montreal Expos in May 2000, made the move with the club to D.C. and played in Washington from 2005-07. Schneider made his way around the NL East, also catching for the Mets from 2008-09.

Overall, Schneider accumulated a .247 average, 67 homers and 387 RBIs in 1,048 games in the major leagues.
