Kevin Gausman will pitch out of the bullpen during the Orioles' ALDS matchup with the Tigers.
It's not really a surprise. Gausman posted a solid 3.57 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 88/38 K/BB ratio across 113 1/3 innings this season and is a big part of the Orioles' future, but the 23-year-old right-hander will take a backseat to the more-experienced foursome of Chris Tillman, Miguel Gonzalez, Wei-Yin Chen, and Bud Norris.

Kevin Gausman got a no-decision in Thursday's loss against the Yankees, yielding two runs in five innings of work.

Gausman was touched up early, giving up two runs after allowing the first two batters he faced in the bottom of the first inning to reach base. The young right-hander settled down from there, though, allowing just three hits and a walk overall while striking out five. It's still unknown if he'll be in the Orioles' post-season rotation. He wraps up his first full season in the major leagues with a 7-7 record, a 3.57 ERA, a 1.34 WHIP, and an 88/38 K/BB ratio.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter confirmed Saturday that Kevin Gausman (blister) is expected to make his next start.

Apparently, the young right-hander battled a blister on his right middle finger during Friday's start against the Red Sox. It appears to be only a minor issue though.
Sep 20 - 4:31 PM

Kevin Gausman pitched decently in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday, giving up two runs on seven hits over his five innings of work.

The hard-throwing young right-hander fanned three and didn't walk a batter on the evening. He breezed through the first three innings without any difficulty, but was tagged for back-to-back homers from David Ortiz and Yoenis Cespedes in the fourth. He has done a nice job in 19 starts with the O's registering a 3.57 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 83/37 K/BB ratio in 108 1/3 innings. His final tune-up of the regular season will come against the Yankees in New York on Wednesday.
Sep 19 - 11:20 PM

Kevin Gausman spun seven shutout innings but had to settle for a no-decision in Friday's 2-1, extra-innings victory over the Yankees.

Gausman gave up seven hits (six of them singles), walked two and struck out seven. He exited with the score tied 0-0 before the Orioles eventually prevailed in the 11th inning. Gausman will take a 3.57 ERA into next week's home start against the Blue Jays.
Sep 12 - 5:35 PM

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.
Sep 1 - 4:19 PM

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.
Sep 1 - 12:05 PM

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.
