Cardinals Call on MacDougal for Bullpen Help
NEW YORK (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals purchased the contract of right-hander Mike MacDougal from Triple-A Memphis before their game Wednesday night against the New York Mets.

MacDougal was 2-0 with one save and a 3.86 ERA in eight games for Memphis, after starting the season in the Washington Nationals system. MacDougal saved 20 games for the Nationals last year, and was an All-Star for the Kansas City Royals in 2003.

He's 14-21 with a 4.09 ERA in 10 seasons, including a stint with the Chicago White Sox.

The Cardinals optioned right-hander Fernando Salas to Memphis to make room for MacDougal.
