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, 2.38) 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.

She was followed by teammate Georgia Simmerling of North Vancouver, B.C., in 1:11.07.I still feel like I could have been better in a few spots, but it was overall really good, said Thompson. I felt like I fixed my mistakes in my training runs, so that was good. Theres a smaller field here than most World Cups, but the Europeans all bring their strongest racers so itll be a good field.The top 16 women advanced to Saturdays elimination heats, which will feature four skiers racing each other down a course of turns, jumps and bumps.Im definitely looking forward to racing now that qualifyings over, said Thompson, who won her second career Crystal Globe as overall World Cup champion last season.Like Thompson, Simmerling is looking forward to testing her skills against top-flight international competition.Were both super-pumped to get in the gates with other girls, where it counts, said Simmerling. I think (a medal) can definitely happen and Im going to keep skiing smart and clean and fast. Hopefully thats whats going to happen.Switzerlands Fanny Smith finished third in qualifying while Swedens Anna Holmlund and Sandra Naeslund rounded out the top five. Smith won the inaugural World Cup race at Nakiska two years ago before finishing second behind Thompson last year.ddddddddddddIn the mens qualifiers, Calgarys Brady Leman finished fourth in 1:08.16.I just had a mistake at the bottom of the course, Leman said. Its so tight, you cant have any mistakes, but the rest of the run was OK so I guess well see.After training hard in the off-season, Leman is hoping to improve upon his third-place showing in Nakiska last year.Its a lot of work to get back here every year, he said. The first one is always so intense. Its going to be important to get out quick, for sure.Austrias Johannes Rohrweck had the fastest qualification run of the day in 1:07.91. Teammate Anton Grimus and French skier Jean Frederic Chapuis rounded out the top three.Montreals Chris Del Bosco finished ninth in a time of 1:08.46 to also advance to Saturdays races.I was looking forward to a good start here - have a decent qualifier and then its a whole different ball game, Del Bosco said. Im fired up for the season. I worked really hard this summer. Now its time for the fun. We put in all that work, so we can have fun all year. Hopefully that will translate into some good results.Four other Canadian men also made the 32-skier cut.David Duncan of London, Ont., was 17th in 1:08.80, Ian Deans of Kelowna, B.C., was 19th in 1:08.83, Tristan Tafel of Canmore, Alta., was 22nd in 1:09.05, while Louis-Pierre Helie of Berthierville, Que., was 28th in 1:09.22.
