Philadelphia Phillies SP Dustin McGowan will draw the start Thursday, April 23, against the Miami Marlins in place of the injured SP Sean O'Sullivan (knee).
Fantasy Tip: McGowan isn't expected to go more than three or four innings, so fantasy players will want to steer far clear of this situation.

Free-agent RP Dustin McGowan signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, April 4.
Fantasy Tip: McGowan has bounced between the rotation and the bullpen in recent years, and his fantasy value will depend on how the Phillies decide to use him. He can be left on the waiver wire for now.

Free-agent RP Dustin McGowan (Blue Jays) signed a one-year, $507,500 deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers Monday, Feb. 23. He'll receive a $1 million bonus if he's on the roster out of spring training, and he can make an extra $1.5 million in incentives. The Dodgers will be without RP Kenley Jansen (foot) for at least a month to start the year.
Fantasy Tip: McGowan comes in and will compete for a late-inning bullpen job with Jansen out of the picture to start the season. There's a chance he could be considered for ninth-inning duties in the meantime, but it's unlikely given LA's other options like Joel Peralta, Brandon League and J.P. Howell.

Free-agent RP Dustin McGowan (Blue Jays) is likely headed to the Los Angeles Dodgers, per team sources.
Fantasy Tip: With closer Kenley Jansen sidelined for 8-12 weeks, this move would likely be to shore up the Dodgers bullpen. McGowan's fantasy value should be watched during spring as he posted a 3.35 ERA and 7.5 strikeouts per nine innings pitched after Toronto sent him to the bullpen.

The Toronto Blue Jays may have interest in bringing back RP Dustin McGowan at a lower salary, after the team declined his 2015 option. "When we did that contract, the option salary was $4 million and I understand there are relievers that make $4 million but that was based on him as a starter," Anthopoulos said. "Right now, that number was just too high for us."

Toronto Blue Jays SP Dustin McGowan will be moved to the bullpen. SPs Marcus Stroman or Todd Redmond will take McGowan's spot in the starting rotation, according to manager John Gibbons.
Fantasy Tip: Stroman has tremendous upside in the rotation and should be scooped up in all leagues, if he isn't owned already.
