The Devil Rays avoided arbitration with infielder Ty Wiggington and right handed pitcher Seth McClung by inking them to one year deals. Wigginton had a career year in his first season with the Devil Rays in 2006. He belted 24 homeruns and drove in 79, both of which were career highs.
Seth McClung had a pretty rough year in which he walked 68 versus 59 strikeouts in 103 innings. He had an ERA of 6.29 and a WHIP of 1.83, both of which are, um, bad. Oddly, he did it all. He started and even eventually closed games as Lou Pinella tried to find an answer to his pitching problems.
I no longer live in the Tampa area but I did make it down for a game and McClung started. Unfortunately, he got shelled.
