 Biographical Information
Pitcher Kyle McClellan, a St. Louis native, was selected by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 25th round of the 2002 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Scott Melvin, bypassing a scholarship to the University of Missouri, and made his pro debut that summer with the Johnson City Cardinals. Originally a starter, he had Tommy John surgery in 2005 and ulnar nerve surgery the next year before coming back as a reliever. He began the 2007 campaign with the Palm Beach Cardinals, where he posted a 1.24 ERA and striking out 24 in 16 games before being promoted to the Springfield Cardinals in June. He did not allow a run in his first 10 outings with Springfield and put up a 2.35 ERA and notched 30 strikeouts in 24 games.
