The Pittsburgh Pirates released right-handed pitcher Seth McClung on Wednesday according to the Tampa Bay Times. McClung was signed as a minor league free agent in November. He made one appearance during Spring Training and struck out the side in his only inning of work. McClung spent last year pitching in Mexico and last appeared in the majors in 2009 with the Brewers.

Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site.
