  1. A few things..the surgery is to “improve range of motion” whatever that means. Dusty has a power arm but his career has likely been done for a while…which is a shame considering how long and hard he has worked to get back into a Blue Jays uniform. Before this, I figured his most likely return path was in through the bullpen…he had a hell of an arsenal and once he understood he had to attack the hitters without fear.

    I’m not sure if the Jays control him next year or not…still got a hell of a lot of pitching depth, though. On top of the four previously mentioned, don’t miscount Rzypcynski, Litsch, Drabek, Stewart..

  3. So first the UCL, then his Labrum, now the rotator cuff?

    The surgery trifecta, now how many pitchers get to do that?

  4. had MCL surgery at some point too

    adding to the difficulty of his return is that he also has diabetees which he supposedly has to work around during his rehab

  5. It says a lo about the Jays organization that they stuck with him through all of this. I think a lot of organizations would have cut ties a long time ago.

    If only they had done the same with Carpenter many moons ago (although the financial commitment to Carp was much greater).

  6. Carp wasn’t getting better without Dave Duncan so either way they would lose.

  7. Too bad, hopefully he can get back to the majors. I remember reading a quote during spring training during his breakout 2007 where Frank Thomas said McGowan had some of the best stuff he had seen. That’s some pretty high praise.

  8. To be fair Arnsberg, Queen and Butera are/were no slouches — the Jays have since done some pretty impressive things with rag-tag “no-name” pitchers themselves. Who’s to say Carp wouldn’t of thrived in Toronto as he has in St. Louis? People tend to forget that Halladay’s 2000 season (19 G, 13 GS, 10.64 ERA — I know, I know) was one of the worst in history, but after some Mel Queen love, his 2001 season was oh so slightly better (16 G, 16 GS, 3.19 ERA) and the rest, as they say, is history.

  9. Memories of McGowan include how he finally “put it together” in my eyes after a tough series of starts against the Yankees with a freshly grown beard, then him not stopping after that while still rocking said beard. Another is when he brought a no-hitter into the ninth against the Rockies. Closest I have come to seeing a full no hit game.

  11. It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read more things about it!
