The Dodgers have designated right-hander Mike MacDougal for assignment, according to the club's official Twitter feed. In a corresponding move, Ronald Belisario has been reinstated from the restricted list.
Despite posting some middling peripheral numbers, MacDougal managed a 2.05 ERA in 69 games for Los Angeles last season, earning himself a new one-year, $1MM contract in January. He has posted a 7.94 ERA in seven appearances (5 2/3 innings) this season. The 35-year-old reliever will now have to clear waivers before the Dodgers can send him back down to the minors.
Belisario was due to be activated after serving a 25-game suspension for failing a drug test. The right-hander hasn't pitched since 2010 due to visa and substance abuse issues.
