Market For Mike MacDougal

ESPN's Jayson Stark looks at the market for recently non-tendered reliever Mike MacDougal in a Rumor Central post today.  Stark says eight to ten teams are "actively pursuing" MacDougal, with the Phillies most interested.  Stark names the Orioles, Pirates, Cardinals, Mets, and A's as other suitors.

The Nationals had the worst bullpen ERA in baseball in 2009 (5.09), so their decision to non-tender MacDougal isn't a good sign.  The righty, 33 in March, struck out only 34 while walking 38 in 54.3 innings this year.  Despite a 96 mph fastball and a strong groundball rate, MacDougal would be a risky late-inning bullpen addition if he costs several million.
