Cardinals Sign Kyle McClellan to One Year Deal

by @ 5:17 pm. Filed under Uncategorized

The Cardinals inked pitcher Kyle McClellan to a one year deal and they’ll avoid arbitration.  The deal will bring McClellan around $2.5 million and that leaves just one player, Jason Motte, to deal with as far as arbitration.

McClellan filled in as a starter in 2012 for the first time in his four year career with the Cardinals.  He was solid enough with a 12-7 record but it cost him considerably with regard to his strikeout rate.  At this point, I like McClellan as a fill in for the rotation if needed, but I like him better as a reliever and his 2010 was a nice one.
