CHICAGO -- Prior to tonight's game, the Chicago White Sox acquired right-handed pitcher Mike MacDougal from the Kansas City Royals in exchange for minor-league pitchers Tyler Lumsden and Daniel Cortes. To make room for MacDougal, the White Sox will make a corresponding roster move prior to tonight's game vs. Minnesota.

MacDougal, 29, is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA (0 ER/4.0 IP) and one save in four relief appearances in 2006. He returned to the Royals on July 13 after being sidelined for most of the season with a strained right teres muscle.

The, 6-foot-4, 185-pounder, has gone 10-14 with a 3.88 ERA (75 ER/174.0 IP), 50 saves and 162 strikeouts in 162 games (three starts) over six major-league seasons with Kansas City (2001-06). MacDougal, a 2003 American League All-Star, established career highs in wins (five), IP (70.1) and ERA (3.33) last season while being named the Royals Pitcher of the Year.

Lumsden, 23, was 9-4 with a 2.69 ERA (37 ER/123.2 IP) and 72 strikeouts in starts in 2006 with Class AA Birmingham. The left-hander originally was selected by the White Sox as a sandwich pick between the first and second round (34th overall) of the 2004 draft.

Cortes, 19, went 3-9 with a 4.01 ERA (48 ER/107.2 IP) and 96 strikeouts in 20 games (19 starts) this season with Class A Kannapolis. The right-hander originally was selected by the White Sox in seventh round of the 2005 draft.

The trade between the White Sox and Royals is the first since a six-player deal on December 10, 1987 that involved pitchers Floyd Bannister and Greg Hibbard.
