Blue Jays | Dustin McGowan throws

Toronto Blue Jays SP Dustin McGowan (shoulder) threw off a mound Tuesday, March 5, for the first time in almost a year and a half and looks to be making progress. He threw roughly 20 pitches and his velocity was rather impressive for his first time out, with hitting coach Pete Walker estimating he was hitting mid- to upper-80s while mixing in some changeups. McGowan's rehab schedule is fluid, and the team will likely take it day-to-day with him. The Blue Jays won't rule him out for a spot in the bullpen, but he's a long shot to be ready by opening day.
