NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. -- The Marlins have agreed to bring back right-hander Dustin McGowan on a 1-year, $1.75 million deal, as Joe Frisaro of first reported.

McGowan is the second move of the day for the Marlins, who also signed Jeff Locke to a 1-year contract. Miami is known to be looking for both starters and relievers on the open market, and has interest in high-end closers Kenley Jansen and Aroldis Chapman.

McGowan, 34, pitched well for Miami last year, posting a 2.82 ERA in 67 innings in the middle of the club’s bullpen. The veteran has spent nine years in the majors, appearing with the Blue Jays and Phillies before joining the Marlins in 2016.
