Kevin Gausman surrendered four runs on 10 hits over five innings in earning a no-decision against the Tigers on Sunday.

Not much to write home about here. Gausman struck out just one and walked two on the afternoon. The Motor City Kitties landed solitary runs off the right-hander in the first, second, fourth and fifth innings. For the season, he holds a 3.00 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 24/7 K/BB ratio through five starts (30 innings). A road date with the Angels shows next on his schedule.
May 15 - 5:43 PM

Kevin Gausman struck out nine while allowing three runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Twins on Tuesday.

Gausman didn't make many mistakes, but Trevor Plouffe hit one for a two-run homer in the sixth inning, scuttling Gausman's chance at a win. The right-hander gave up five hits and two walks on the evening. Through four starts, he's got a 2.16 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 23/5 K/BB ratio over 25 innings, but still no wins to show for it. Those will come, though, pitching and pitching well for one of the AL's best teams. He'll look for a better result Sunday against the Tigers.
May 10 - 11:24 PM

Kevin Gausman remains on track to start Tuesday against the Twins.

The Orioles and Twins were rained out Monday, but Gausman's schedule won't be impacted. This means he'll remain a two-start option this week. The Orioles have pushed Tyler Wilson back to Wednesday.
May 9 - 8:38 PM

Kevin Gausman scattered three hits over eight scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Thursday.

Gausman and Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka went pitch for pitch through eight innings, with neither factoring in the decision. He struck out four without walking a batter, needing just 97 pitches in the efficient outing. It was easily the best of his three starts thus far, but Gausman has largely been good since making his debut on April 25. He'll take a 1.42 ERA and 0.68 WHIP into Tuesday's start at the Twins.
May 5 - 10:23 PM

Kevin Gausman gave up three runs -- two earned -- over six innings in a no-decision Saturday against the White Sox.

The right-hander was largely good, surrendering just four hits and a walk while striking out three, but his bullpen couldn't hold on to get Gausman his first win. He's been strong in both of his starts since coming off the disabled list, owning a 2.45 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in those starts. He'll seek that elusive first win Friday against the A's.
Apr 30 - 11:11 PM

Kevin Gausman pitched well in his season debut Monday, striking out seven over five frames of one-run ball in a loss to the Rays.

He was out-dueled by Chris Archer, but it was an encouraging showing for Gausman, who was hitting the upper-90s regularly with his heater while flashing a nasty slider. The young righty did need 91 pitches to get through five innings, so he'll need to improve his efficiency. Gausman gets the White Sox this weekend.
Apr 25 - 10:45 PM

Orioles activated RHP Kevin Gausman from the 15-day disabled list.

Gausman was forced to begin the year on the disabled list due to right shoulder tendinitis, but he's ready to make his season debut Monday against the Rays. The 25-year-old has shown flashes of brilliance in the past and possesses breakout potential in 2016.
Apr 25 - 6:09 PM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) is expected to return to the Orioles' rotation Monday against the Rays.

Gausman was deemed ready after collecting nine strikeouts in Wednesday's rehab outing for Triple-A Norfolk. He's missed the last few weeks with shoulder tendinitis. Vance Worley will return to the bullpen when Gausman is activated.
Apr 21 - 5:12 PM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) will make one more rehab start Wednesday at Triple-A Norfolk.

If the outing goes smoothly, Gausman will join the Orioles' starting rotation next week. He has missed the first few weeks of the regular season after coming down with shoulder tendinitis in March. The right-hander was looking like a possible breakout candidate before the arm problems started, and he may still be one.
Apr 19 - 4:37 PM

The Orioles will announce what the next plan is for Kevin Gausman (shoulder) after he throws a bullpen session on Sunday.

Gausman made a second rehab start with High-A Frederick on Friday, striking out eight while allowing one earned run but lasting only 3 1/3 innings. The plan had been for the righty to throw five frames. "Throwing 71 pitches in 3 1/3?" manager Buck Showalter said. "I’d like to see a little bit better use of those pitches." Based on Showalter's comments, it sounds like Gausman might make one more rehab start. We'll find out later Sunday.
Apr 17 - 8:54 AM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) will make his second rehab start with High-A Frederick on Friday.

Gausman had been on track to rejoin the Orioles' rotation on April 19, but that's not going to happen with him starting on Friday. It's unclear how many innings he'll go after tossing two frames in his first rehab start, but this could be Gausman's final rehab outing if things go well. That puts him on pace to be activated as soon as next Wednesday, although the O's haven't committed to that happening.
Apr 15 - 8:39 AM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) threw 30 pitches in a simulated game on Wednesday.

Gausman worked two innings at 15 pitches a piece. He is slated to throw three or four innings in a minor league rehab start at Double-A Bowie on Saturday, with April 19 targeted as his return date to the majors. Gausman was diagnosed with right shoulder tendinitis in late March.
Apr 6 - 4:44 PM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) is expected to make a minor league rehab start Saturday with Double-A Bowie.

It should be the first of two rehab starts for Gausman, who is making his way back from right shoulder tendinitis. The Orioles are hoping he's ready to make his season debut on April 19. Mike Wright will open the season as Baltimore's No. 4 starter while Tyler Wilson or Vance Worley will fill the fifth spot.
Apr 5 - 11:04 AM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) will throw a 35-pitch side session on Tuesday.

If the workout goes well, he should be cleared to pitch in a game next weekend either at extended spring training or one of the O's minor league affiliates. Gausman, placed on the disabled list last week with right shoulder tendinitis, is aiming to join the Orioles' starting rotation on April 19.
