Marlins Release Mike MacDougal

The Marlins released reliever Mike MacDougal, according to the team's media relations department.  MacDougal had signed a minor league deal on February 18th.  He was knocked around in five spring appearances.

MacDougal provided an interesting test case for how highly teams value saves, as he saved 20 in 21 tries last year but walked more than he struck out.  The save total didn't get MacDougal very far, though Fernando Rodney appears to have earned several million extra for his.  MacDougal does share a couple of positive traits with Rodney: he averages over 95 mph on his fastball, and he gets tons of groundballs.
