Description: Blue Jays starter Dustin McGowan allowed one run on three hits over seven innings in Sunday's win over the Pirates.
Insight: McGowan has given up three earned runs on six hits in his last 13 innings to likely save his job in the rotation. The Blue Jays placed prospect Marcus Stroman on the same starting schedule as McGowan in the minors last week, but McGowan has lowered his ERA from 6.88 to 4.80 in his last two starts.

Description: Toronto starter Dustin McGowan got his first win since June 22, 2008 Friday against the Orioles.
Insight: McGowan fired 6 1/3 scoreless innings, struck out two, walked one and gave up five hits. The right-hander dealt with numerous shoulder injuries from 2008-12 before finally returning last season and throwing 25 2/3 innings in relief. It's a good story, but he's not really a fantasy option you want to pursue.

Description: Dustin McGowan will serve as Toronto's fifth starter to begin the season, according to the Toronto Star.
Insight: McGowan threw just 21 big league innings from 2009-12 due to three separate shoulder surgeries to repair a frayed labrum and torn rotator cuff before returning for 25 2/3 frames last year. His best season was 2007, when he went 12-10 with a 4.08 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 169 2/3 innings. He could be a decent AL-only option, but there's no need to draft him in mixed leagues.

Description: Blue Jays right-hander Dustin McGowan will be activated from the disabled list Saturday, according to Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca.
Insight: McGowan has thrown just 21 big league innings since 2008 due to three separate shoulder surgeries to repair a frayed labrum and torn rotator cuff. His best season was 2007, when he went 12-10 with a 4.08 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 169 2/3 innings. He's expected to be a 1-2 innings reliever, manager John Gibbons said, so he won't have any fantasy value.

Description: Dustin McGowan threw 25 pitches at 80% velocity today. SOURCE: GREGOR CHISHOLM
Insight: Don't get ahead of yourself - not even McGowan thinks he will break spring training with Toronto. He will wait a couple days and see how his arm feels. It's a positive step but he is months away from pitching in a game.

Description: The Toronto Blue Jays have re-signed SP Dustin McGowan on a one-year deal worth $450,000; he has undergone three operations in the past three seasons and has not pitched since having shoulder surgery in June. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports

Steady12/25/2008 8:20:00 PM
Description: According to the Blue Jays website, McGowan may be ready to rejoin the rotation in May or June. He had shoulder surgery last year.
Insight: McGowan has looked like an above average pitcher in his young career. Prior to his surgery last year, he had struck out 85 batters in 111.1 innings with a 4.37 ERA. If your league has a DL slot, you could draft and stash him. (SportsBuff.com)
