Kevin Gausman blanked the Tigers for five innings and struck out eight on Sunday.

It was an awfully weak lineup Gausman was facing, as James McCann was the only regular to make the trip. Still, Gausman already faced the absolute toughest lineup this spring has had to offer -- he pitched against the D.R. in an exhibition game 12 days ago -- so he deserved the break. He's been impressive in compiling a 1.80 ERA.

Kevin Gausman allowed two runs -- one earned -- in three innings and struck out three Monday against the Phillies.

Gausman wasn't roughed up, but since it took him 65 pitches to get through three innings today, he wasn't able to expand his innings count as planned. He gave up three hits and walked one before being lifted.

Kevin Gausman pitched three hitless innings Tuesday as the Orioles edged the Dominican Republic 5-4 in an exhibition game.

The Orioles won this one after the scoring three runs off a pair of their own young relievers at the end of the game; the Dominican team had already gone through the eight pitchers it intended to use in the contest. This one won't count in the official spring standings, but it was a strong showing for Gauman. He's used to facing tough lineups in the AL East, but this one had Nelson Cruz hitting sixth and Starling Marte batting seventh.

Orioles and RHP Kevin Gausman avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.45 million contract.

Gausman had requested $3.55 million and the Orioles countered at $3.15 million. Gausman can earn an extra $50,000 for starting 30 games and another $50,000 for starting 33 games. This was his first crack at arbitration and it came a year early due to meeting the requirements for Super 2 status. The now 26-year-old is coming off a nice season in which he delivered a 3.61 ERA with 174 strikeouts in 179 2/3 innings spread across 30 starts.
Feb 5 - 10:24 AM

Orioles general manager Dan Duquette said Saturday that the club plans on going to arbitration hearings with Kevin Gausman, Brad Brach and Caleb Joseph.

In Gausman's case, the two sides were close enough in the figures they submitted there had been some speculation that a deal would get done in the middle, but the O's appear to be set on going to hearings with each of their three remaining arbitration cases. Gausman has been rising up fantasy draft boards this spring after a terrific finish to his 2016 campaign.
Jan 28 - 11:56 AM

Kevin Gausman requested $3.55 million and was offered $3.15 million by the Orioles when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

With the two sides being so close, a deal in the $3.3 million range seems likely. He was projected by MLBTradeRumors.com to earn $3.9 million. The 26-year-old's fantasy value is on the rise after finishing the 2016 campaign with a 2.39 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 45/11 K/BB ratio over 52 2/3 innings in his final eight starts.
Jan 13 - 8:53 PM

Kevin Gausman gave up two runs in 7 1/3 innings in a 5-2 win over the Yankees on Sunday.

He gave up eight hits and a walk against only three strikeouts. Brian McCann took him deep for a solo homer in the 4th inning. The final run charged to Gausman came in the eighth inning when Didi Gregorius singled to drive in Gary Sanchez. The 25-year-old has cemented himself as an above average fantasy starter despite his 9-12 record. He finishes the season with a 3.61 ERA with 174 strikeouts and 47 walks in 179 2/3 innings.

Kevin Gausman allowed five runs -- four earned -- over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

The good news is Gausman didn't appear to be affected at all by the minor intercostal strain he dealt with in his last start. However, he wasn't terribly sharp in this one, yielding seven hits -- including a homer homers -- and two walks. Gausman has been the Orioles' best starter for the last month but has struggled his last two times out. He'll conclude his regular season Sunday in the Bronx.

Kevin Gausman (intercostal) felt good during Saturday's bullpen session and will start Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Gausman felt some oblique soreness after his last start but said it was just a cramp. He had been scheduled to start Sunday against the Diamondbacks but Dylan Bundy will get the nod instead with Gausman slotting in after the team's off day on Monday. Despite an 8-11 record, Gausman leads the Orioles in ERA (3.57) and strikeouts (166) this season.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Kevin Gausman (intercostal) is feeling better and is expected to be ready to start Tuesday or Wednesday.

Gausman had to be pushed back from Sunday with a minor intercostal issue, but the O's expect him to be fine. If the right-hander is ready to take the ball on Tuesday, he would have time to get in two starts before the end of the regular season.

Kevin Gausman will not start on Sunday against the Diamondbacks due to soreness in his intercostal area.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter thinks the ailment could have been caused by Gausman being a bit dehydrated. He's hopeful that the injury is minor and that the right-hander will be ready to pitch on Tuesday or Wednesday in Toronto. "He’s got a little something bothering him that we think should manage hopefully by Tuesday or Wednesday," Showalter said. "We hope he’s our starting pitcher Tuesday or Wednesday, that’s what we’re hoping for. It won’t be Sunday. We have an off-day there to play with, see how things manage the next few days." Dylan Bundy will be moved up to start Sunday.

Kevin Gausman was charged with five runs over 6 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

Gausman wasn't nearly as sharp as he has been lately, as he gave up 10 hits -- including a pair of home runs -- while walking one. Orioles manager Buck Showalter probably left him in too long, as his 101st and final pitch of the night was a three-run homer served up to David Ortiz. Gausman entered the start having allowed just three runs over his last five outings. He'll face the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Kevin Gausman shut out the Red Sox for eight innings Wednesday in Baltimore's 1-0 victory.

Gausman has been one of the AL's unluckiest pitchers this year and he was going up against perhaps it's luckiest in Porcello, but it didn't matter tonight; Gausman was just that good. He's pitched scoreless ball in four of his last five starts, and he's now 8-10 with a 3.43 ERA overall. The Orioles won two out of three in Boston to pull within one game of the Red Sox.

Kevin Gausman logged a quality start in Friday's loss to the Tigers, surrendering three runs on seven hits over his six frames.

The right-hander racked up seven strikeouts on the night while walking three. The Tigers scratched out a run in the second inning then added a pair on a two-run single by J.D. Martinez in the fifth. Gausman has done a nice job overall this season, compiling a 3.61 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 155/42 K/BB ratio over 152 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column on Thursday when he takes on the Rays.
