MacDougal set to make decision
The Nationals must make a decision on right-hander Mike MacDougal, who is currently pitching for Triple-A Syracuse. They could bring him up to the big leagues as early as Tuesday or let him become a free agent.
In fact, MacDougal has an out clause that could make him a free agent after Monday’s game against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. There is a possibility MacDougal could stay with Syracuse.
I saw acting general manager Mike Rizzo before the game and he told me MacDougal has not made a decision. Entering Monday’s action, MacDougal has given up one run in 6 1/3 innings for Syracuse.
