Rangers Sign Seth McClung

The Rangers have signed Seth McClung to a split contract, according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com (via Twitter).  The 6'6" right-hander will be looked at as a starter in Spring Training.

McClung, who turns 30-years-old in February, hooked on with the Marlins last winter but was cut loose just prior to Opening Day.  He last appeared in the majors in 2009 with the Brewers, registering a 4.94 ERA with 5.8 K/9 and 5.7 BB/9.

The veteran pitcher recently switched his representation from the Boras Corporation to Sosnick Cobbe Sports. ESPN's Jerry Crasnick tweets that he'll earn $700K if he makes the team, with another $700K available in bonuses tied to the number of starts he makes.
