Kyle McClellan, who was released by the Cardinals in November, has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rangers.

McClellan gets an invitation to spring training as he tries to come back from July shoulder surgery. If healthy he could be a nice low-cost pickup for Texas considering his 3.69 ERA in 378 career innings.

He’s expected to be ready for spring training and will likely compete for a middle relief gig, although McClellan does have a little starting experience too.
