DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Dustin McGowan says his latest injury setback "is not a big deal, but it's still a pain in the butt to go through it."

McGowan, who has been plagued by injuries in recent years, is waiting for some soreness in his neck to heal.

"I didn't play catch today," he said Thursday. "It's kind of a 'wait and see tomorrow' kind of thing.

"See how I feel tomorrow. If I need another day, I'll take another day."

Manager John Gibbons said Wednesday that McGowan's shoulder was "barking a little bit."

McGowan had been tossing the ball from distance and says he might have pushed it a little bit.

"After that I came in a little sore," he said.

McGowan has been throwing on flat ground since mid-December.

The 30-year-old pitcher missed all of last season with plantar fasciitis in his right foot and shoulder surgery. He has only appeared in five major league games since the 2008 season, sidelined by shoulder and knee surgeries.

"It aggravates me a lot," McGowan said of his injury woes. "I go home and think about it sometimes. It's just best to let it go but it's hard to do that when you've been through it so much."

McGowan, 20-24 with a 4.80 earned-run average in 80 career games, says he won't give up.
