Cardinals Avoid Arbitration With Kyle McClellan

The Cardinals and reliever Kyle McClellan have agreed to a one-year contract, avoiding arbitration according to the team's Twitter feed.  The deal is worth $1.375MM, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. With the right-hander's contract taken care of, the Cardinals have no more arbitration eligible players for 2011. 

Last season McClellan, 26, turned in a career-best 2.27 ERA last season with 7.2 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 in 75.1 innings of work.  This winter marked McClellan's first crack at arbitration eligibility.  To keep up on all of the 2011 arbitration cases, check out our Arb Tracker.
