It has to do with the surgery but the good news is the repair site is not the problem. A week ago I felt great. But I haven't faced hitters since May and this is part of the process."

McClellan ready to compete


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2013) ESPN reports Rangers pitcher Kyle McClellan, who signed a minor-league contract and is competing for a spot in the team's rotation, said he has thrown 16-17 bullpen sessions since taking December off.

I’m getting my muscles used to throwing again.” If McClellan doesn't make the rotation, then he is also a candidate for the bullpen. "I didn’t sign here because I felt like I had a better opportunity to start here over somewhere else," he said. "I signed here because it was a place that I felt my family would be comfortable. It was an opportunity to win, an opportunity to reestablish myself in the big leagues. Whatever that is, whether it’s in the rotation or bullpen, is for them to decide. The biggest thing is for me to show I’m healthy and that I can be a contributing piece in a major league club.”
