The Cubs have signed thirty-five year old relief pitcher Mike MacDougal to a minor league contract today. MacDougal was granted his release from the Dodgers after refusing to accept an outright assignment to the minors. He had a very nice season last year for the Dodgers, but has struggled thus far this year. MacDougal has had some up and downs in his career, but the possibility of getting some cheep help in the bullpen can only help as the season goes forward. The beauty about it is if it doesn’t work, it really doesn’t cost you anything and you can easily cut ties with him.
