TORONTO - From this there will be no going back. Dustin McGowans time as a major league starting pitcher is over. Hes off to the bullpen to reprise the role in which he was so effective last season. He knows what to expect. He no longer has to worry about the relative brevity of his starts and the effect its had on the bullpen. There will be less stress about the pain in his arm on days in between starts. He wont have to concern himself with tiring and the role elevated blood sugar levels - McGowans a type 1 diabetic - may be playing in the fatigue. Theres a feeling of relief about being a reliever. "Yeah it is, actually, to tell you the truth," said McGowan. "That was one thing, when I left the office today, I kind of felt like there was a weight lifted off of my shoulder a little bit. Like, now I know what I can go do and what I need to do." McGowan met with manager John Gibbons in the skippers office on Thursday afternoon. Hed pitched into the fifth inning on Wednesday, leading to another night of taxing work for the bullpen. The question Gibbons had: how are you feeling? McGowan, as he promised he would be, was honest with his response. "Recovery is starting to get slower and slower and I was the first one that said that I would tell them when I started feeling a little sore," he said. The problems began after McGowans start in Pittsburgh, he said, when he noticed that hed be sore for the next four days, until the day before he was scheduled to pitch again. There was mutual agreement to pull the plug on the starting experiment. "To be honest with you I think it will prolong his career," said Gibbons. "I dont know how many total innings he threw last year but hes got to be close to that number this year. I think it would be a shame for him to get hurt out there again and his careers over." McGowan agrees. "Whos to say if I tried those two more starts, what if something did happen," said McGowan. "Thats something I didnt want to happen." McGowans had three significant shoulder surgeries, which wiped out his 2009 and 2010 seasons, most of 2011 and the entirety of 2012. He returned as a reliever last June and pitched well in 25 appearances, posting a 2.45 ERA and striking out a hitter per inning. The 32-year-old can now forge a relief career in peace. Last September, he asked for one more chance to start. He got it, in large part because Toronto failed to land free agent Ervin Santana and because J.A. Happ struggled in spring training and began the season on the disabled list. The reasons why dont matter, though, the fact is he got the opportunity. "I asked for the opportunity and they gave me the shot," said McGowan, whos 2-2 with a 5.08 ERA in 39 innings pitched this year. "Its been a little rocky but I got the opportunity and Im glad I did." WHO REPLACES McGOWAN? Given the Blue Jays roster volatility, its impossible to predict with certainty who will get the first shot at McGowans spot. Toronto has an off day on Monday, in between three-game series in Texas and Boston, meaning manager John Gibbons can push back a fifth starter as far as a week Saturday when the Jays are back home and playing Oakland. From the current roster, Gibbons could go young and give Marcus Stroman his first career start. He could give the ball to Todd Redmond, a noted strike thrower. Stroman, 23, has worked to mixed reviews in five appearances during his first stint in the big leagues. He got his first major league win, pitching 1 1/3 innings in an extra inning victory at Philadelphia on May 6. Following another scoreless appearance against the Phillies on May 8, however, Stroman has since eight earned runs and 11 hits in three innings over two outings. "Just got to make pitches," said Stroman. "Hitters are hitters and you can never give them too much credit. Just got to really make pitches, bear down, its the best hitters in the world so you dont have room to make mistakes and they hammer mistakes." Here are the pitching matchups for the weekend set in Texas: Friday - RHP Drew Hutchison (1-3, 4.37) vs. RHP Yu Darvish (3-1, 2.33)Saturday - LHP Mark Buehrle (7-1, 2.04) vs. LHP Robbie Ross (1-5, 5.04)Sunday - RHP R.A. Dickey (4-3, 4.53) vs. RHP Nick Martinez (0-1, 2.3Cool RASMUS TO THE DISABLED LIST He was hoping to avoid it but Colby Rasmus went on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 13, with tightness in his right hamstring. "He wasnt healing quick enough," said manager John Gibbons. "Its tough to play shorthanded so this way he can go on the DL, get rid of the thing completely and hell be good to go in a couple of weeks." Anthony Gose was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to take Rasmus roster spot. Gibbons plan is to platoon Gose, who hits left-handed, with right-handed hitting Kevin Pillar. Cheap Cardale Jones Jersey . Trailing 5-4 in the third set, the 12th-ranked Isner fought off two match points and evened it at 5-5 with consecutive aces. The former University of Georgia star had his only service break of the match to go up 6-5 before firing the last four of his 30 aces to close out Ginepri, an Atlanta resident ranked 281st.

Cheap Bills Jerseys China . After overcoming a three-goal deficit the Senators forced the game to overtime only to watch it slip away as Seth Jones scored the winner 3:49 into the extra period as the Nashville Predators defeated the Senators 4-3 Monday night. Cheap Nathan Peterman Jersey . After Mondays comments by Coach Claude Noel that its work first and skill second, and that more A games are needed, the Jets responded with a 47-shot effort. If not for terrific goaltending by Braden Holtby the Jets would have had two points in regulation.Manchester Thunder head coach Dan Ryan refused to question the decision to postpone the top-of-the table clash with Hertfordshire Mavericks. A leak in the roof at the Thunderdome had delayed the start of the Vitality Netball Superleague match and hosts Manchester were leading 14-9 at the end of the first quarter when officials halted the action due to safety concerns about the wet court.The postponement meant leaders Manchester remain tied on 27 points with the second-placed Mavericks, who can move top of the table with a win over Yorkshire Jets on Monday night, live on Sky Sports. Helen Housby had helped Manchester Thunder into an early lead Ryan insisted he respected the umpires concerns, despite the willingness of both sets of players to continue the match. Players safety is the most important thing, Ryan told Sky Sports. Its the umpires call and they made that decision.From our knowledge, the Mavericks were happy to keep playing, our girls were happy to keep playing. But it was the umpires who made the call and they have the authority to do that, so we have to stand by what they call in the end and the decision stands. But if umpires see reason to be concerned for players safety, then they have the authority to do that and we respect the decision that they made.dddddddddddd Dan Ryan Whether it was the correct call or not, Im not too sure, the players were happy to keep playing. But if umpires see reason to be concerned for players safety, then they have the authority to do that and we respect the decision that they made. We were disappointed not to finish the game. We started well and were playing well in the first quarter, so we were quite keen to push on and see what we could do with the game. The Mavericks can take top spot on Monday night The match must now be rescheduled during the hectic closing weeks of the campaign and Ryan admits he understands the dismay of the fans, who were hoping to see a competitive clash. Both teams were fighting for top spot, so there was plenty to play for, and its disappointing that we could not see the game through, said Ryan.A lot of people travel from many different regions and areas to come and watch the game. To only see 15 minutes of it, no doubt they would have been disgruntled, but at the end of the day, you cannot change what happened.Watch the Mavericks against the Jets this Monday night, from 7.30pm on Sky Sports 2.
