Signed relievers BRAD CLONTZ and JORDAN ZIMMERMAN to minor-league contracts.

Clontz hasn't pitched in the Majors since 2000 but offered 55 solid innings and a 3.42 ERA for high-altitude Colorado Springs in 2003. Should one of the expected righty reliever suffer an injury or otherwise pitch poorly, Clontz might step in. According to the Baseball Cube, Jeff Zimmerman's younger brother has pitched the grand total of two-thirds of an inning during the last four years. Chronic shoulder problems have limited him to 124 professional innings over the last seven years. At best, he's organizational fodder.
