Mike MacDougal released

The Nationals had until today to decide to add reliever Mike MacDougal to their major league team or release him, and they made the expected decision to grant him unconditional release, a team spokesman said. MacDougal, their closer for the final half of last season, went 4-1 with a 4.71 ERA with 21 innings with Class AA Harrisburg and Class AAA Syraucse.

The Nationals signed MacDougal late this spring training after the Marlins released him. Last year, MacDougal saved 20 games in 21 chances last season after arriving midseason.

mike macdougal was very good, when he was in kc; however, when he was traded to the white sox, he could not find the plate.

he has good stuff, but needs someone, like dave duncan, to get his mind, back to throwing strikes.

. . . and we already have a closer who can scare us half to death before getting the save.
