EDGE Analysis

McGowan holds a 9.88 ERA over his last 11 appearances, with a WHIP of 1.83. After earning a stellar 2.82 ERA last season, the 35-year-old right-hander is certainly having a down year, as he currently owns a 4.42 ERA over 75.3 innings this season.

McGowan (5-0) earned his fifth win by allowing one run over 1.1 innings and recorded one strikeout in Wednesday's win over St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

The 35-year-old has been utilized mostly as a long-reliever this season, but has a 2.98 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 38 strikeouts across 45.1 innings. McGowan has been fantastic since the start of June, with 14 strikeouts and only four runs allowed over 19.2 innings and a 3-0 record.

McGowan has an ERA of 2.84 with a 31:14 K:BB in 38 innings this season.

EDGE Analysis

It's the 35-year-old's second season in Miami, and this one is starting to shape up extremely similar to the first one. Last season, McGowan had an ERA of 2.82 with a WHIP of 1.22 in 67 innings, and is posting just a slightly better ERA with a WHIP of 1.16 this year. Despite the consistency, the veteran reliever hasn't faced many batters in stressful situations, limiting his fantasy potential in even the deepest leagues.

McGowan allowed only two hits, including a solo home run, while striking out three over three innings of relief to pick up the win in Tuesday's victory over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

He came into the game after Justin Nicolino injured his finger on a bunt in the bottom of the third inning and, a mistake to Howie Kendrick aside, McGowan looked sharp in earning his second win of the season. The right-hander has been solid in long relief on a staff whose starters rarely go deep, and he now has a 3.86 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB in 25.2 innings. If the Marlins' offense continues its recent improvement, McGowan could vulture a handful more wins over the rest of the season.

McGowan has allowed 10 earned runs across 22.2 innings out of the Marlins' bullpen this season.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran right-hander has given up four runs on nine hits and four walks over 9.2 innings in May, and the Marlins have lost the past six games he has appeared in. McGowan is largely relegated to mop-up duty at this point, but those opportunities could be plentiful if Miami continues to struggle.

McGowan is looking to throw more changeups to right-handed hitters this season, The Sun-Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

He radically altered his pitch mix last season, throwing more two-seam fastballs than four-seamers and firing his slider a career-high 30.5 percent of the time, but lost in the shuffle was his changeup, which McGowan used a career-low 5.6 percent. The 34-year-old is hoping now that he has an established spot in the Marlins bullpen, he'll be able to work the off-speed offering back into his repertoire, although it'll be hard to improve on the .147/.234/.235 line he held same-side hitters to in 2016. The righty's role in middle relief still limits his fantasy utility, but McGowan could push his K/9 rate north of 9.0 if he's able to add another effective pitch to his arsenal.

McGowan signed a one-year contract with the Marlins on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

A non-roster invitee to major league camp last spring, McGowan earned himself a major league contract this offseason on the strength of the a 2.82 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over 67 innings for the Marlins. He wasn't a big factor in the late innings, however, racking up just three holds and one save, and it's hard to imagine he'll see a big increase in high-leverage work especially with Miami rumored to be in the market for back-end relievers.

McGowan has allowed five earned runs over 11.1 innings pitched in August.

EDGE Analysis

In that span, McGowan has picked up one loss, a blown save, and a hold. The eight-year veteran has also seen his ERA balloon from 2.83 to 3.08 during that time. Unless McGowan can boost his 0.96 K:IP, he offers little fantasy value.

McGowan tossed a pair of scoreless innings in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies, allowing one hit with two strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran reliever holds a solid 3.03 ERA and 0.93 WHIP over 35.2 innings pitched this season. He has not allowed a run over his last five appearances and boasts a strong 33:13 K:BB ratio . The back end of the Marlins' bullpen is fairly set, but the veteran has pitched well enough to take on a larger role if needed.
