Marlins Sign Seth McClung

Pitcher Seth McClung officially signed a minor league deal with the Marlins today. The righty will earn $800K if he makes the big league roster and could earn another $50K in incentives. 

McClung, 29 in February, posted a 4.94 ERA, 5.8 K/9, and 5.7 BB/9 in 62 innings for the Brewers last year.  He was non-tendered after the season.  Silver lining: McClung averaged 93.2 mph on his fastball last year.  Between him, Derrick Turnbow, and Jose Veras, the Marlins will find something for next to nothing.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald first reported the deal. MLB.com's Adam McCalvy first tweeted that an agreement was close and added the terms of the deal. MLB.com's Joe Frisaro also added some salary information (via Twitter).
