Apr 17 - 9:37 AM

Apr 3 - 10:39 AM

Marlins signed RHP Dustin McGowan to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

McGowan registered an ugly 6.94 ERA, 2.10 WHIP, and 21/20 K/BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings this summer for the Phillies. The oft-injured right-hander probably won't crack the Marlins' Opening Day bullpen next spring.

Phillies sent RHP Dustin McGowan outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

It's the second time since last month that he's been outrighted, so he can declare free agency if he wants. McGowan has posted a 6.94 ERA and 2.10 WHIP in 23 1/3 innings this season for the Phillies.

Phillies designated RHP Dustin McGowan for assignment.

McGowan has posted a rough 6.94 ERA and 2.10 WHIP in 23 1/3 innings this season for Philadelphia. He was outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster in May after passing through waivers unclaimed and probably won't draw interest from other teams this time around either.

Phillies purchased the contract of RHP Dustin McGowan from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

McGowan was outrighted off the Phils' 40-man roster last month but now finds himself back in the big league bullpen replacing Jake Diekman. The righty held a 5.79 ERA and 2.14 WHIP over 10 appearances for Philly earlier this season.

Phillies sent RHP Dustin McGowan outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

It's the corresponding move to adding Maikel Franco to the roster. McGowan got a guaranteed deal from the Phillies just before Opening Day but has struggled this season with a 5.79 ERA and 2.14 WHIP over 10 appearances.

Dustin McGowan, making his first start of the season, took the loss on Thursday after allowing four runs in 3 1/3 innings as the Phillies fell to the Marlins 9-1.

McGowan was taking the place of the injured Sean O'Sullivan (knee) and fared reasonably well. Having pitched out of the bullpen since joining the Phillies in early April, he wasn't expected to pitch deep into the game, and it wasn't surprising that he relented in the fourth. The Marlins got two-run singles from both Adeiny Hechavarria and Martin Prado to hang a four-spot in the fourth inning. Overall, McGowan gave up three hits and walked four while striking out four. He's likely to get another start or two while O'Sullivan and Chad Billingsley (elbow) work their way back. McGowan is slated to face the Cardinals in St. Louis next.

Dustin McGowan will start on Thursday versus the Marlins.

It will be his first start since May of last season. The longest McGowan has lasted this season is two innings, so he'll certainly be on a limited pitch count. The Phillies are lacking starting options, though, so he could get a few starts until Sean O'Sullivan (knee) or Chad Billingsley (elbow) are ready.

Phillies signed RHP Dustin McGowan to a one-year contract.

McGowan was cut by the Dodgers earlier this week after allowing six runs over eight innings this spring, but it didn't take him long to find a new home. The 33-year-old had a 4.17 ERA with a 61/33 K/BB ratio over eight starts and 45 relief appearances for the Blue Jays last season and is expected to pitch out of the bullpen with Philadelphia.

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, Dustin McGowan has agreed to a contract with the Phillies.

The Dodgers released McGowan at the end of March. Health has been McGowan's biggest bugaboo, as he's only pitched in 128 2/3 innings over the last six years. Arm injuries have waylaid the pitcher on multiple occasions. He allowed six runs in eight innings pitching for the Dodgers this spring.

Dodgers released RHP Dustin McGowan.

Because of a slew of arm injuries, McGowan has logged only 128 2/3 innings over the last six seasons. In 2014, he finally avoided the DL, posting a 4.17 ERA with a 61/33 K/BB ratio over eight starts and 45 relief appearances for the Blue Jays. But he then allowed six runs in eight innings this spring in Dodgers camp after signing a one-year, $507,500 contract in late February.

Dodgers signed RHP Dustin McGowan to a one-year, $507,500 contract.

The deal carries close to $2.5 million in performance bonuses. McGowan has logged only 128 2/3 innings at the major league level over the last six seasons due to health issues, but he avoided the disabled list in 2014 and posted a decent 4.17 ERA and 61/33 K/BB ratio across eight starts and 45 relief appearances for the Blue Jays. McGowan will function as a long reliever with Los Angeles.
