|Dustin McGowan hopes bullpen helps keep him healthy |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/14) Blue Jays pitcher Dustin McGowan has struggled to recover after each of his starts this season, and was finally moved to the bullpen Thursday. He told MLB.com he hopes the move can help prolong his career.
"By that fourth day I felt like I could throw again and by game day I'm fine," he said, after noting he was usually fighting through pain in his off-days. "At that slow pace, if I keep going at that rate, I might not be ready to go on that fifth day. It took a lot out of me. Now I have to save some to keep going and prolong my career."
McGowan pitched out of the bullpen in 2013 while recovering from shoulder surgery, posting a 2.45 ERA in 25 2/3 innings of work. He had a 5.08 ERA in 39 innings over eight starts this season.

|Dustin McGowan gives up four runs in loss vs. Indians |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/14/14) Blue Jays pitcher Dustin McGowan was saddled with a loss Wednesday after giving up four earned runs on nine hits and two walks in four-plus innings while striking out three in his team's 15-4 loss to the Indians.
McGowan (2-2) gave up a run in the second inning and another in the fourth to enter the fifth inning down 2-0. After surrendering a double, a home run and a single in succession, he was removed with no outs in the fifth. McGowan owns a 5.08 ERA and 25:17 K:BB ratio in 39 innings. He's scheduled to face the Red Sox Tuesday.
|Dustin McGowan returned from shoulder surgery in 2013 to pitch 25 2/3 innings out of the Blue Jays bullpen. He finished the season with a 2.45 ERA and 1.21 WHIP, striking out 26 batters. The innings were the first McGowan had thrown since 2011 and the most since 2008; he's been hit by a string of bad luck injuries nearly every season since. McGown has talent, but he'll be 32 years old when the season starts and has long passed the point of potential. He may have found his niche in the bullpen after a long road back from several surgeries, but he won't have any Fantasy value from that new role, especially with the Blue Jays boasting an especially strong back end of the bullpen.
