Dustin McGowan News
McGowan (foot) will be shut down for the next two weeks after experiencing some shoulder inflammation during his throwing program while recovering from a foot injury, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: McGowan was examined by Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday and no structural damage was found, which is certainly good news, but you can push McGowan's possible return back at least a couple of weeks as a result. "When he was getting 100-120 feet, he was still in that early phase, he never got to really any flat ground or certainly not to the mound yet. We felt like ... particularly in his case, that he might feel some discomfort in there or some tightness, not too much discomfort, but it persisted and he never seemed to get some freeness to it, and we made precautionary measures to take him in for an MRI, and that's what it revealed," manager John Farrell said.
