The Texas Rangers will give the North County native additional rest before he tries to throw in the bullpen again. McClellan had to end Sunday’s bullpen session early.

Early in February the non-roster right-hander was announced as a candidate for two spots on the Texas Rangers’ staff: fifth stater and long reliever. But it seems his shoulder and its injuries are still haunting him. Ron Matejko of ESPN Dallas reports that McClellan had to cut short Sunday’s bullpen session, but the right-hander seems optimistic that it’s a minor setback. “You know pain and you know if it’s something structural, but this is just one of the muscles,” McClellan told Matejko. “I can put my finger right on it and feel it.” (Get instant news updates.

The Hazelwood West alum figures the team will non-tender him after his recent surgery left him on the disabled list for the remainder of the season.
Thanks in part to the injury and surgery that benched him for the rest of the baseball season, Kyle McClellan thinks he may have played his last game as a St. Louis Cardinal, according to a report from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. McClellan will be arbitration-eligible for the third time this winter, and his $2.5 million dollar salary for this season was enough to make the Cardinals entertain offers for him last year. Going through the arbitration process again could mean that the Cards could pay more than $3 million next season for McClellan, and he told the Post he expects they’ll non-tender him. "I know how the process works. I know they're thinking about how to protect themselves," McClellan told the Post. “"I also know that if …

Have you got a plan to watch the game? St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Bernie Miklasz called the Cardinals a team with grit in his latest column about the team: “Philadelphia might be shocked, but not St. Louis. The Cardinals never were supposed to be here. They were done, gone, finished. They trailed Atlanta by 10.5 games in the NL wild card race on Aug. 24, then proceeded to destroy every piece of conventional wisdom.” Meanwhile, Philadelphia Daily News columnist Paul Hagen laments the format of a series in which “a bad bounce here, a bloop hit there can send …
