Former All-Star MacDougal agrees to deal with ChiSox

CHICAGO -- Right-handed reliever Mike MacDougal and the
Chicago White Sox agreed Friday to a $6.45 million, three-year
contract.

MacDougal was eligible for salary arbitration this winter and
free agency following the 2009 season. He gets salaries of $1.5
million in 2007, $1.95 million in 2008 and $2.65 million in 2009,
and Chicago has a $3.75 million option for 2010 with a $350,000
buyout.

The 29-year-old right-hander was 1-1 with a 1.55 ERA and one
save in 29 relief appearances with Kansas City and the White Sox,
who acquired him July 24 for minor league pitchers Daniel Cortes
and Tyler Lumsden. MacDougal was 1-1 with a 1.80 ERA in 25 outings
with Chicago.

MacDougal is 11-15 with a 3.62 ERA and 50 saves in 187 relief
appearances over six major league seasons. He was an AL All-Star in
2003.
