The Clemson baseball team got a bonus on Friday afternoon with RHP Scott Firth declined a final offer from the Philadelphia Phillies and did not sign before the 5:00 PM deadline.
Firth was the 32nd round draft choice of the Phils in June. He met with the team Tuesday in Philadelphia but the offer was not good enough to get him to sign.
Firth made 24 appearances last season and was 4-0 with 3 saves and a 2.09 ERA.
Firth likely will join Daniel Gossett and Kevin Pohle to form the Tigers’ weekend rotation in 2013.
