Nationals Sign Mike MacDougal

The Nationals signed Mike MacDougal to a minor league contract, according to the transactions page at The right-hander will provide the Nationals with bullpen depth, presumably at the minor league level.

The Dodgers signed MacDougal to a one-year, $1MM deal before the season, but released him in May. The 35-year-old then signed a minor league deal with the Cubs, posted a 7.85 ERA with more walks than strikeouts at Triple-A, and got released again. The Hendricks Sports client has been a free agent since July 11th.

Last I remember of MacDougal with the Nationals is him having one pitch, a wicked 2-seamer with crazy movement, so much that he struggles throwing it for strikes consistently. Can’t see him ever having time with the big league club unless a few people go down in the bullpen.
