      Rays' Dustin McGowan: Signs minor-league deal with Rays

      The Tampa Bay Rays signed Dustin McGowan to a minor-league contract with a non-roster invitation to spring training, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.McGowan compiled an 8-2 record with a 4.75 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 64 strikeouts across 77.2 innings as the Marlins' long-relief man in 2017. The 35-year-old is likely to be seeking a similar role with Tampa Bay in 2018, but will need to put together a solid spring training to crack the Opening Day roster.

      Marlins' Dustin McGowan: Holding steady in 2017

      Dustin McGowan has an ERA of 2.84 with a 31:14 K:BB in 38 innings this season.It's the 35-year-old's second season in Miami, and this one is starting to shape up extremely similar to the first one. Last season, McGowan had an ERA of 2.82 with a WHIP of 1.22 in 67 innings, and is posting just a slightly worse ERA with a WHIP of 1.16 this year. Despite the consistency, the veteran reliever hasn't faced many batters in stressful situations, limiting his fantasy potential in even the deepest leagues.

      Marlins' Dustin McGowan: Gets win Tuesday with strong relief effort

      Dustin McGowan allowed only two hits, including a solo home run, while striking out three over three innings of relief to pick up the win in Tuesday's victory over the Phillies.He came into the game after Justin Nicolino injured his finger on a bunt in the bottom of the third inning and, a mistake by Howie Kendrick aside, McGowan looked sharp in earning his second win of the season. The right-hander has been solid in long relief on a staff whose starters rarely go deep, and he now has a 3.86 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB in 25.2 innings. If the Miami Marlins' offense continues its recent improvement, McGowan could vulture a handful of additional wins over the rest of the season.

      Marlins' Dustin McGowan: Eating innings for last-place Miami

      Dustin McGowan has allowed 10 earned runs across 22.2 innings out of the Miami Marlins' bullpen this season.The veteran right-hander has given up four runs on nine hits and four walks over 9.2 innings in May, and the Marlins have lost the past six games in which he's appeared. McGowan is largely relegated to mop-up duty at this point, but those opportunities could be plentiful if Miami continues to struggle.

      Marlins' Dustin McGowan: Looking to throw more changeups in 2017

      Dustin McGowan is looking to throw more changeups to right-handed hitters this season, the Sun-Sentinel reports.He radically altered his pitch mix last season, throwing more two-seam fastballs than four-seamers and firing his slider a career-high 30.5 percent of the time, but lost in the shuffle was his changeup, which McGowan used a career-low 5.6 percent. The 34-year-old is hoping now that he has an established spot in the Miami Marlins bullpen, he'll be able to work the off-speed offering back into his repertoire, although it'll be hard to improve on the .147/.234/.235 line to which he held same-side hitters in 2016. The righty's role in middle relief still limits his fantasy utility, but McGowan could push his K/9 north of 9.0 if he's able to add another effective pitch to his arsenal.

      Marlins' Dustin McGowan: Returns to Marlins on one-year deal

      Dustin McGowan signed a one-year contract with the Miami Marlins on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.A non-roster invitee to major league camp last spring, McGowan earned himself a major league contract this offseason on the strength of the a 2.82 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over 67 innings for the Marlins. He wasn't a big factor in the late innings, however, racking up just three holds and one save, and it's hard to imagine he'll see a big increase in high-leverage work especially with Miami rumored to be in the market for back-end relievers.

      Marlins' Dustin McGowan: Inconsistent in August

      Dustin McGowan has allowed five earned runs over 11.1 innings pitched in August.In that span, McGowan has picked up one loss, a blown save and a hold. The veteran has also seen his ERA rise from 2.83 to 3.08 during that time. Unless McGowan can boost his K rate, he offers little fantasy value.
