DUNEDIN, Fla.–Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Dustin McGowan threw 68-pitches, 40 for strikes while pitching in a Class-A minor league at the team’s Bobby Mattick Training Complex Monday.  Facing the Tampa Yankees McGowan allowed five runs on six hits while walking two and striking out five over three-plus innings.  “All it means is I got my pitches in,” said McGowan who spent over three years on the DL having two shoulder surgeries and a knee surgery before returning the the majors last September.  As to when or where he will pitch next McGowan said, “In five days, I don’t care where it is.”  “He was alright,” said pitching coach Bruce Walton, “His fastball was at 94-96 MPH.”
