Globe-Democrat: Scott Schneider Shines

Two-time Cardinals Pitcher of the Month Scott Schneider headlines this week's Minor League Notebook at the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

Quad Cities River Bandits right-handed pitcher Scott Schneider is profiled in this week's Minor League Notebook, which appears each Wednesday in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

The Cardinals 20th-round pick from last June's draft looks back at his successful debut in 2009, his Pitcher of the Month performance in April and how he bounced back from two uncharacteristically rough outings since.

Premium Article In an exclusive bonus for The Cardinal Nation subscribers, my entire Schneider interview is provided here in audio format.

The 21-year-old discusses a wide variety of topics beyond those in the article. They include his days as a shortstop, his view of another college two-way player - his catcher Robert Stock, how he prepares differently in the tandem starting arrangement, which pitches from his teammates he admires and why, how he acquired his nickname and much more.


In case you missed it, last week's Globe-Democrat column focused on four pitching sleepers in the Cardinals minor league system.
