Today's minor moves...
- The Phillies have signed right-hander Mike MacDougal and assigned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, tweets Lehigh Valley radio announcer Matt Provence (via Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer on Twitter). The 36-year-old was released by the Reds earlier this month.
- Lefty reliever Brian Tallet has retired, reported Burt Wilson of Lancaster Newspapers. MLBTR has confirmed the news; Tallet is pursuing a career in coaching. Tallet pitched to a 4.79 ERA in nine seasons with the Indians, Blue Jays, and Cardinals, earning over $5MM. He pitched for the Padres' Triple-A club last year, joining the Lancaster Barnstormers of the Atlantic League this spring. Tallet was a useful reliever for the Jays from 2006-08, compiling a 3.38 ERA over 173 innings. He was known for sporting quality facial hair.
- The Reds released outfielder Joe Mather, Baseball America's Matt Eddy revealed in his minor league transactions post for June 13-19. Mather had signed a minor league deal out of the Atlantic League with the Reds in May, but hit .174/.287/.291 in 102 Double-A plate appearances. Mather was drafted by the Cardinals in the third round in 2001, a round that also produced big leaguers Scott Hairston, Jack Hannahan, and Ryan Theriot.
- Eight players currently reside in DFA limbo: Wade LeBlanc of the Astros, Quintin Berry of the Royals, Eric Thames of the Mariners, Josh Wilson of the Diamondbacks, Jose Valverde of the Tigers, Collin Cowgill of the Mets, Yamaico Navarro of the Orioles, and Ross Seaton of the Astros.
