Amid a flurry of roster moves made by the Toronto Blue Jays today came this little snowflake:
To make room on the 40-man roster for Igarashi the #bluejays have transferred DUSTIN McGOWAN to the 60-day disabled list.

Good thing the Blue Jays moved swiftly to lock up McGowan through 2014. While the questionable three year, $4.1 million contract that was signed before the start of the season won’t harm the team that much financially, there were worries that locking McGowan up would be a poor use of a roster space in the future.
Well, at least with today’s news, that’s no longer an issue.
