The Nationals have signed Mike MacDougal to a minor league contract. MacDougal played for the Nats back in 2009, meaning he can probably only make things worse. I guess the team is taking a gamble on this Las Vegas native, hoping that he will pay out. That, or maybe they just brought him in for recommendations on hookers when the team travels to Vegas.
There isn’t much of a place for MacDougal on the big league roster right now, but if he waits around maybe something will open up. That’s what the Nats have been telling John Lannan for months to distract him from plotting to assassinate Ross Detwiler.
