The Mariners have signed reliever Mike MacDougal to a minor league deal and will assign him to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

MacDougal, 37, had been pitching for the Camden Riversharks of the Atlantic League. He allowed one run in four innings of work, striking out seven without issuing a walk. MacDougal spent 2013 in the minor league systems of the Phillies and Reds, but hasn’t been in the big leagues since 2012 with the Dodgers. In 5 2/3 innings with the Dodgers,┬áhe allowed five runs with a 4/6 K/BB ratio.

    I don’t blame him for wanting to get out of Camden.

    In all seriousness though, this guy has clung on to relief gigs for much longer than I thought he would after he pitched his way out of the closer’s role in Kansas City back in 2005. Fairly impressive, when you look at his track record.

    Another strong signing by “Master of the Deal!” Jack Z.

    Yes, in fact my tongue is firmly in my cheek; why do you ask?

    In James/Neyer’s Guide to Pitchers, their synopsis a MacDougal was “Throws really hard, has no idea where it’s going.” Sort of like Carlos Marmol, only cheaper.
