St. Louis Cardinals Agree To 1-Year Deal With Pitcher Kyle McClellan

The St. Louis Cardinals have reached an agreement on a 1-year contract with Kyle McClellan, according to STL Today. Terms of the deal have not yet become official, thought the 4th-year pro is due a raise from his $1.4M salary in 2011.

McClellan had spent the previous three seasons as a workhorse in the Cardinals' bullpen, but when injuries struck the team in 2011, McClellen was called on to start 17 games for the red birds.
