Kevin Gausman allowed one run in seven innings to earn a 2-1 victory over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He struck out six and walked just one in the quality start. He surrendered six hits including three doubles but kept the ball in the yard as the Orioles won the low-scoring affair. The only run he allowed came in on a Richard Urena double in the third inning. Gausman has been as good after the All Star break as he was bad before it. He has an 11-10 record with a 4.83 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 31 starts on the season. He had a 5.85 ERA in the first half and owns a 3.43 mark in the second half.
Sep 13 - 11:01 PM

Kevin Gausman is dealing with a blister issue on his right index finger but will make his scheduled start Wednesday in Toronto.

Gausman is unconcerned, saying he deals with blisters often and that his bullpen session Sunday went off without a hitch. It's good to hear that he's confident, but it's worth noting that the righty allowed five runs over just three innings in his last outing. His inconsistency and the blister problem makes him a risky fantasy proposition Wednesday.
Sep 11 - 5:03 PM

Kevin Gausman lasted just three innings and gave up five runs Thursday in a loss to the Yankees.

Gausman had no command today; when he wasn't walking three batters, he was leaving fastballs right down the middle. He came into this one having thrown 13 2/3 scoreless innings in his previous two starts. The Orioles are hoping this one was an aberration. He's still allowed two runs or fewer in eight of his 11 starts since the All-Star break.
Sep 7 - 6:01 PM

Kevin Gausman blanked the Blue Jays over six-plus innings on Friday.

Gausman was pulled at 115 pitches after walking the leadoff batter in the seventh. He gave up five hits — four singles and a double — while walking just one batter and striking out eight. While Gausman had to settle for the no-decision, he has thrown 14 2/3 scoreless innings over his last two starts to lower his ERA to 4.79 for the year. He hasn’t seen that territory since mid-April.
Sep 2 - 12:23 AM

Kevin Gausman shut down the Red Sox on Saturday, hurling 7 2/3 scoreless innings in a 7-0 victory.

He notched five strikeouts against three walks and allowed just four knocks in the gem start against one of the best teams in the majors. Gausman had a very poor first half of the season but has turned things around in a major way since the All Star break. Overall he is 10-9 with a 4.98 ERA that has been dropping fast.
Aug 26 - 7:49 PM

Kevin Gausman served up four homers and allowed five runs in four innings during Saturday's loss to the Angels.

Both Mike Trout and Luis Valbuena burned him twice. He tossed a gopherball in each inning he pitched. It's been an up-and-down season for the young hurler and there's definitely been a lot more good than bad lately. This is the first bad start he's made in a while and ends his 10 game stretch in which he went 6-1 with a 3.19 ERA. He is now 9-9 with a 5.25 ERA and woeful 1.63 WHIP overall, with most of that damage done before the All Star break. He's given up 26 taters in 27 starts. The fact he has punched out 135 batters in 144 innings shows his potential if he can find a way to keep the ball out of the bleachers.
Aug 19 - 11:44 PM

Kevin Gausman held the Mariners to two runs and six hits over seven innings to win Monday.

This was a pretty easy one for Gausman, as the Orioles gave him seven runs in the first two innings and three more in the fifth. He's 6-1 with a 3.19 ERA and a 69/17 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings in his last 10 starts.
Aug 15 - 2:13 AM

Kevin Gausman allowed four runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Angels.

Gausman had been on a roll over his last four starts (two runs in 27 2/3 innings) but that was slowed just a little on Wednesday. The hard-throwing right-hander surrendered solo runs in the third and fourth innings before C.J. Cron finished off the scoring on his line via a two-run home run in the sixth inning. Despite his recent strong run of outings, Gausman still holds a 5.21 ERA and 1.63 WHIP for the season as a whole. A road showdown with the Mariners shows next on his schedule.
Aug 9 - 7:56 PM

Kevin Gausman was outstanding in a tough-luck no-decision on Friday, racking up eight strikeouts over seven innings of one-run ball against the Tigers.

Gausman scattered just three hits and a walk on the night. He gave up a solo homer to Jim Adduci in the first inning then completely dominated the Tigers for the remainder of his night. Unfortunately, the O's bullpen was unable to protect his lead. He has been phenomenal over his last four starts, lowering his ERA from 6.39 to 5.15 in the process. He'll look to continue his newfound dominance when he takes on the Athletics in Oakland on Thursday.
Aug 4 - 10:03 PM

Kevin Gausman scattered seven hits with three walks over 8 2/3 scoreless innings in a win Saturday at Texas.

Gausman also struck out eight batters, throwing 80 of his 118 pitches for strikes. However, he just ran out of steam in the ninth inning and Zach Britton came on to record the final out. He is starting to look ace-like again after a dismal start to his season. Gausman has won three straight starts, five consecutive decisions and he hasn't lost since June 21.
Jul 30 - 2:07 AM

Kevin Gausman struck out eight batters over six shutout innings Monday in the Orioles' 5-0 victory at Tampa Bay.

Gausman issued three walks and surrendered five hits, but he kept the Rays from doing any meaningful damage. The 26-year-old right-hander has now put together two excellent pitching lines since Orioles manager Buck Showalter suggested that he might be on the verge of a demotion to the minor leagues. He still has an ugly 5.79 ERA and 1.72 WHIP for the year.
Jul 24 - 10:27 PM

Kevin Gausman took home a win against the Rangers on Wednesday by allowing just one run in six innings.

His only mistake was a solo home run by Joey Gallo in the fifth inning. Gausman has been wildly inconsistent this season with more bad games than good ones. Today's game definitely fell in the latter category. He struck out eight batters, walked two and surrendered four base hits. His record improves to 6-7 with an ugly 6.11 ERA and a frightful 1.75 WHIP.
Jul 19 - 10:43 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said demoting Kevin Gausman to the minor leagues is "always a possibility."

Gausman was arguably the Orioles' best starter last year but has struggled to a miserable 6.39 ERA in 2017 and is coming off a dreadful start Friday against the Cubs (3 IP, 7 H, 8 ER). The right-hander clearly isn't fooling anyone as opponents have hit .323 against him this season. Surely the O's would prefer to keep Gausman in the rotation but another bad outing could force their hand.
Jul 15 - 6:37 PM

Kevin Gausman was clobbered in a no-decision against the Cubs on Friday, giving up eight runs on seven hits in just three innings.

Gausman fanned five and walked one on the night. His trouble in this one came from his inability to keep the ball in the yard, with Willson Contreras, Kyle Schwarber, Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward each taking him deep. The right-hander will carry a horrifying 6.39 ERA and 1.79 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rangers.
