Minor Moves: Seth McClung, Mark Teahen

Here are today's minor transactions, with the latest moves at the top of the page…

  • The Pirates released right-hander Seth McClung, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.  McClung pitched in Mexico in 2013 and has also spent time in the Cubs, Rangers and Brewers farm systems since last pitching in the Major Leagues in 2009.  The 33-year-old signed a minor league deal with the Bucs in November and now hopes to catch on with another club, though McClung tells Smith that he accepts that his career could be over.
  • The Giants have released veteran corner infielder/outfielder Mark Teahen, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle tweets.  Teahen signed a minor league deal with the Giants last month.  The 32-year-old last played in the majors with the Blue Jays in 2011, and has since played at the Triple-A level for the Nationals, Diamondbacks and Rangers, as well as with the York Revolution of the independent Atlantic League.  Teahen posted a career .264/.327/.409 career slash line in 3171 PA with the Royals, White Sox and Blue Jays from 2005-11.
  • According to MLBTR's DFA Tracker, Dodgers right-hander Javy Guerra is the only player currently in DFA limbo.  As reported earlier today, several teams are interested in trading for Guerra.

After this dude’s first few seasons, it looked like he was gonna turn into a stud with the Royals.

He had an amazing second half for the Royals in about 2006 I believe. Never seemed to recover from his WBC injury… always thought he needed to move to second. Was solid in the KC community

He’s like an Erik Hinske. The guy wins the AL Rookie of the Year with 24 HR and 84 RBI and it all goes down hill from there.

Hinske has been a really solid pinch hitter though. Teahen is certainly a footnote in Moneyball. Just never really hit well enough for a 3B. He did have his moments

I didn’t even realize McClung was in camp with the Pirates. He could possibly help some team, but not the Bucs: their bullpen was already very deep.
