DUNEDIN, Fl.–(RSEN) Blue Jays RHP Robert Ray (elbow) threw two innings during his first simulated game Thursday.  “I had no problems,” said Ray, “Now 45-50 pitch’s on Tuesday.”  According to Ray he last appeared in a game during the last week of spring training this year.

recovery can’t be far behind.   Blue Jays RHP Dustin McGowan, who has been sidelined because of two arm surgery’s and a knee surgery, unleashed a 94 MPH fastball in an extended spring game against the Yankees squad.  High lightning his fastball with an 84 MPH slider in his second extended outing McGowan allowed two unearned runs on two hits and struck out one on 19-pitches over one inning.  “It was good, real good actually,” said McGowan afterwards, “It was good to get out there again.”  Working from the stretch McGowan doesn’t know when he will pitch next.  “I have to sit down with them (trainers and coaches) as they have it mapped out and I can see when the next one is.”
