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.
Jul 20 - 8:07 PM

Kevin Gausman will not be on an innings limit in the season's second half.

"The wrappers are off," Orioles manager Buck Showalter recently said regarding the club's usage of Gausman. The right-hander was used mostly as a spot starter in the first half, making seven starts while shuttling between Baltimore and the minor leagues. The O's still haven't committed to giving him the ball every five days, but with the kid gloves off Gausman should be more involved in the next two months. He has a 3.29 ERA over 38 1/3 innings and is a nice flyer in deeper mixed leagues.
Jul 16 - 7:41 PM

Kevin Gausman defeated the Yankees in a rain-shortened contest on Sunday night, surrendering just one run on four hits over his five innings of work.

The five innings constituted the entirety of the ballgame as the storms wouldn't let up enough to allow for a completion. Gausman punched out two without walking a batter on the night. The only damage against him came on a leadoff homer from Brett Gardner. He now owns a 4-2 record, 3.29 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 26/13 K/BB ratio over 38 1/3 innings with the Orioles on the season.
Jul 14 - 12:19 AM

Orioles recalled RHP Kevin Gausman from Triple-A Norfolk.

Gausman will start either on Saturday (less likely) or Sunday (more likely) against the Yankees in place of the injured Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle). Jimenez is eligible to return from the DL not long after the All-Star break, but Gausman should get at least one additional outing.
Jul 11 - 4:36 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Kevin Gausman to Triple-A Norfolk.

Gausman allowed one run over 5 1/3 innings against the Red Sox on Sunday, so it's not anything he did, but the Orioles are in need of an arm for their bullpen because the game went to extra innings. The young right-hander is expected to make at least one start in Triple-A. Don't give up on him yet in deeper fantasy leagues. He should be back soon.
Jul 7 - 4:26 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed one run over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Sunday.

Making a spot start, Gausman was in line for the win before the Red Sox rallied to tie the game after he exited. Gausman struck out seven while walking two and allowing four hits. He's been more good than bad after a clunker his first time out on May 14, and Sunday's start may earn him an extended look with the O's this time. That start could come this weekend against the Yankees.
Jul 6 - 8:49 PM

Orioles recalled RHP Kevin Gausman from Triple-A Norfolk.

Gausman will start on Sunday against the Red Sox. He's not guaranteed another start after that, so the righty might have to pitch well in order to remain in the rotation. Gausman holds a 3.86 ERA and 17/11 K/BB ratio over 28 innings this season.
