Kevin Gausman delivered a strong start in a no-decision against the Rays on Saturday, allowing just two runs on five hits over his seven frames.

Gausman whiffed seven on the afternoon while walking four. He has done a nice job since being re-inserted into the O's rotation, and is making a push to be included as part of the team's playoff rotation. He'll carry a 3.83 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 73/35 K/BB ratio into Friday's matchup against the Yankees.
Sep 6 - 4:28 PM

Kevin Gausman gave up five runs -- four earned -- in 7 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Twins.

Gausman looked sharp until the top of the sixth inning, when Joe Mauer hit a two-run triple and Kennys Vargas scored Mauer on a sacrifice fly to center field. Mauer then got to Gausman again for a two-run single in the top of the eighth. Inconsistency has been an issue all season for the 23-year-old Gausman, who will carry a 3.93 ERA and 1.38 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Rays.

Orioles recalled RHP Kevin Gausman from the Gulf Coast League Orioles.

Gausman was optioned to the minors after his Wednesday start against the Rays so that the O's could add a bullpen arm. Now he's back with major league rosters expanding to 40. Gausman will start Monday against the Twins.

Orioles optioned RHP Kevin Gausman to the Gulf Coast League Orioles.

Gausman was sent out for an extra bullpen arm, but he'll be back when rosters expand next week. The right-hander won't miss a turn in the rotation after pitching Wednesday.
Aug 27 - 10:43 PM

Kevin Gausman was chased after four innings, allowing three runs (two earned), in a loss against the Rays on Wednesday.

Gausman was inefficient, needing 80 pitches to make it through his four frames. T.J. McFarland relieved him to begin the fifth inning. Gausman gave up six hits, issued no walks, and struck out four in the effort. The 23-year-old has posted decent results -- he has a 3.84 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, and a 59/29 K/BB ratio -- but he has only averaged 5 1/3 innings per start this season. Gausman will look for improvement in Monday's home start against the Twins next.
Aug 27 - 10:00 PM

Kevin Gausman struck out seven but allowed three runs over five frames in Friday's loss to the Cubs.

Gausman was cruising along in the first three innings, allowing just two baserunners. He hit a rough patch in the fourth, though, yielding three hits (including a home run). He then served up a solo shot to Javier Baez in the fifth and was pulled after needing 101 pitches to cover five innings. Gausman will try to bounce back next week versus the Rays.
Aug 22 - 5:36 PM

Kevin Gausman spun six innings of one-run ball in Sunday's 4-1 victory over the Indians.

Gausman was wild with four walks, but he gave up just two hits while also recording a pair of strikeouts. The young right-hander boasts a 3.23 ERA over his last five starts and it appears that he'll remain in the rotation for a while even with Miguel Gonzalez returning this week. He'll take on the Cubs at Wrigley next weekend.
Aug 17 - 4:48 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed three runs on eight hits over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

The first three batters of the game got singles against Gausman, an ominous start for the 23-year-old. Two came around to score, and he allowed one more over the next four innings, but things could have been worse. Gausman dropped to 6-4 with the loss, but he still owns a 3.90 ERA in 12 starts. The right-hander will look to bounce back Saturday at the Indians.
Aug 10 - 6:11 PM

Kevin Gausman is expected to start on Sunday versus the Cardinals.

That would push Bud Norris back to Monday. Although it appears Gausman will remain in the rotation for the time being, he could be sent to the bullpen or perhaps to Triple-A after Sunday's outing with Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) returning from the DL Saturday. The young righty is a worthy stream against the Cardinals.
Aug 8 - 11:02 AM

Kevin Gausman gave up three runs and eight hits over six innings Monday in the Orioles' 7-3 win over the Nationals.

This wasn't elite Gausman, but he kept it together nicely, turning in a quality start despite giving up eight hits and a homer. He was rewarded with a win, leaving him 6-3 with a 3.77 ERA this season. He'll get another NL team next time out when he pitches at home against the Cardinals.
Aug 4 - 10:49 PM

Kevin Gausman picked up his fifth win of the season, allowing three runs in seven frames against the Angels as the Orioles hung on by a 4-3 margin on Wednesday.

Gausman was able to finish the seventh inning for only the second time in 10 starts this season. He brought a no-hitter into the fifth inning, but lost it after walking the bases loaded with two outs, allowing a two-run single and an RBI double. Overall, Gausman surrendered three hits, walked three, and struck out two. The 23-year-old has been solid out of the rotation, holding a 3.70 ERA, a 1.34 WHIP, and a 37/21 K/BB ratio. He'll take the hill on Monday in Washington against the Nationals as the two squads will make up July 8's postponed game.
Jul 30 - 9:58 PM

Kevin Gausman held serve against Felix Hernandez on Friday, limiting the Mariners to one run in 6 2/3 innings.

Hernandez got one more out and certainly had the more dominant effort, but Gausman got the outs when they mattered and gave the Orioles a chance to win. He allowed seven hits, walked three and struck out three. It was the sixth time in nine starts that he's allowed one or no runs.
Jul 26 - 1:45 AM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies asked for Kevin Gausman in exchange for Jorge De La Rosa.

It was worth a shot, but the O's weren't going to bite on that ridiculous request. Gausman has tremendous upside and at least five more years of cost control. De La Rosa, meanwhile, is set to become a free agent this winter. Baltimore is seeking pitching upgrades with the July 31 trade deadline approaching, but it's been a seller-friendly market so far and the club is reluctant to part with any top prospects.

Kevin Gausman left Sunday's start against the Athletics after facing one batter in the fifth inning, allowing five runs over four innings in a loss.

The A's had Gausman's number on Sunday afternoon, piling up nine hits and a pair of walks. Gausman also struck out six. The right-hander, who has been up and down a few times for the Orioles this season, now has a 4.04 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and a 32/15 K/BB ratio. Gausman will try to pick up his fifth win on Friday night in Seattle against the Mariners.
