Kevin Gausman twirled six shutout innings in Tuesday's 8-1 victory over the Nationals.
It wasn't all that pretty, as Gausman recorded only two strikeouts and needed 110 pitches to get through his six frames. However, five of the six hits he gave up were singles and he managed to keep the Nats off the scoreboard in his best start in a month. Gausman will carry a 3.92 ERA into the Bronx this weekend.

Kevin Gausman allowed five runs -- four earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Astros on Thursday.

Gausman gave up two home runs among his seven hits allowed, with both coming in the sixth inning or later. Gausman was surely given a little longer leash Thursday after his teammates gave up 15 runs of support. The win moved him to 4-10 overall, with a 4.11 ERA and 1.32 WHIP through 22 starts. An interleague date with the Nationals is up next on Tuesday.
Aug 18 - 10:32 PM

Kevin Gausman lasted only four innings while giving up two runs in a loss to the Giants on Saturday.

He was removed early because it took him 97 pitches to get through four frames. He struck out nine batters and gave up only two hits but mixed in six walks. His record falls to 3-10 and he hasn't won a road start in almost two years. The 25-year-old has a 4.04 ERA with 121 strikeouts and 35 walks in 120 1/3 innings.
Aug 14 - 12:48 AM

Kevin Gausman was on top of his game on Wednesday, surrendering two runs in seven innings to beat the Rangers 3-2.

He gave up seven hits and one walk while striking out seven. He has a very good 106/27 K/BB ratio in 110 1/3 innings but has been homer-prone, allowing 20 home runs in his 19 starts. He will take a 3-8 record and 4.08 ERA into a two-start week coming up.
Aug 3 - 9:56 PM

Kevin Gausman was hammered in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday night, allowing six runs on six hits in only three innings.

The right-hander walked three and struck out four in the ballgame. The Jays jumped on him early in this one, with Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion and Troy Tulowitzki each belting solo homers in the first inning. They pushed across three more runs in the third inning to chase Gausman. Now 2-8 on the season, he'll bring a 4.18 ERA and 1.32 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Rangers.
Jul 29 - 10:15 PM

Kevin Gausman shut out the Indians for seven innings, striking out seven, walking three and giving up only four hits as the Orioles won 5-2 on Saturday.

The win was only the second of the season for Gausman even though he has pitched well. His record improves to 2-7 with a 3.77 ERA in 17 starts. He has fanned 95 batters and walked only 23 in 100 1/3 innings.
Jul 23 - 11:53 PM

Kevin Gausman struck out six while allowing just two runs over 6 2/3 frames but took a loss against the Yankees on Monday.

A-Rod homered off of Gausman in the second inning and the Yanks plated another run in the third on a sac fly and that wound up being enough. The righty gave up six hits and issued just one free pass. Gausman has been up and down this season and is now 1-7, but his 88/20 K/BB ratio over 93 1/3 innings has been nice to see. He'll take on the Indians on Saturday.
Jul 18 - 10:26 PM

Kevin Gausman failed to impress in earning a no-decision in Wednesday's 14-inning win over the Dodgers, surrendering four runs on eight hits over five innings.

Gausman struck out six, walked one and yielded a two-run homer to Justin Turner in the first inning and a two-run single to Adrian Gonzalez in the fifth. The 25-year-old right-hander wrapped up the pre-All-Star break portion of his schedule with a 4.15 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 82/19 K/BB ratio over 14 starts (86 2/3 innings).
Jul 6 - 9:17 PM

Kevin Gausman fired 7 2/3 scoreless innings Saturday as the Orioles defeated the Rays 5-0 in the first game of a doubleheader.

It was his first win in 13 starts this season. Gausman was brilliant, giving up just four hits (all of them singles) while walking none and striking out seven. It was just the second time he had completed seven innings in a start this season. He had allowed 10 runs over his last two starts, so the gem was nice to see. We know the talent is there, but consistency continues to be an issue. The 25-year-old will bring a 3.93 ERA into a start against the Mariners next Friday on the road.
Jun 25 - 4:29 PM

Kevin Gausman fell to 0-5 after giving up four runs in five innings Monday against the Rangers.

Gausman deserves some wins; he pitched eight scoreless innings once and has allowed just one run on three other occasions. Still, the run support hasn't been there, and now his ERA has climbed from 3.45 to 4.37 in his last two starts. He'll bounce back, but he's probably not going to have a whole lot of value in mixed leagues.

Kevin Gausman fell to 0-5 after giving up four runs in five innings Monday against the Rangers.

Gausman has certainly earned some victories; he had one start in which he threw eight scoreless innings and three more in which he allowed just one run. Still, the run support hasn't been there for him, and now his ERA has jumped from 3.45 to 4.37 in his last two starts. He'll bounce back, but he's probably not going to have a whole lot of mixed-league value.
Jun 21 - 12:01 AM

Kevin Gausman lasted just three innings and gave up six runs Wednesday in a loss to the Red Sox.

Gausman has given up more than four runs twice in 11 starts this season. Both of those outings have come versus Boston. He has a 3.00 ERA against the rest of the league. Gausman will get two starts next week, one in Texas and one at home versus the Rays. Those aren't the easiest assignments, but he's still a decent play in mixed leagues.
Jun 15 - 10:40 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed eight hits, three runs (two earned), walked two and struck out four during his 6 1/3 innings on Friday versus the Blue Jays but did not factor into the decision.

The hard-throwing young righthander continues his quality season but despite pitching well he has yet to win a game. His record sits at 0-3 with a 3.45 ERA and 54/15 K/BB ratio in 60 innings pitched. The wins are bound to start rolling in soon with the Orioles' strong offense backing him up.
Jun 10 - 11:32 PM

Kevin Gausman was sharp in Sunday's no-decision against the Yankees, allowing one run on seven hits over six innings.

Gausman struck out five and walked two on the afternoon. The only run to score on his watch came when Alex Rodriguez hit a little flare RBI single in the third inning. Gausman will put his 3.52 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 50/13 K/BB ratio (53 2/3 innings) to the test in a road start against the Blue Jays next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 5 - 7:02 PM

Kevin Gausman recorded eight strikeouts but coughed up three home runs and five runs over six frames in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

Gausman served up back-to-back shots to Mookie Betts and Dustin Pedroia to lead off the game and Betts got him again in the second with a three-run shot. The right-hander settled in after that, but by that time the damage was done. Gausman is winless in eight starts but boasts a 3.78 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 45/11 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings. He'll face the Yankees at Camden Yards over the weekend.
