Rangers sign Seth "Aqua" McClung

New, comments

The Texas Rangers have reportedly signed Seth McClung to a split contract, which I believe means he's on a major league deal, but would get a different amount depending on whether he's in the majors or the minors.

Once upon a time, McClung was a BA top 100 prospect (#98 prior to the 2003 season), but he never really did much with the Rays, who drafted him in the 5th round of the 1998 draft, and was dealt to the Brewers in 2007 for Grant Balfour.

McClung appears to have not played in 2010, and would seem to be a long shot to make the Rangers 25 man roster.

I am coming to grips with the fact that the 2011 Rangers will basically be the same as the early July, 2010, Rangers, except with Yorvit Torrealba instead of Bengie Molina behind the plate.
