Kevin Gausman lasted only 2 1/3 innings, allowing four runs (three earned), but got a no-decision as the Orioles won in 11 innings against the Rays on Wednesday.
Gausman served up all four runs in the third inning on a pair of home runs and a single. He allowed a swath of base runners on eight hits and two walks while striking out only one batter. It's the right-hander's shortest outing since moving into the rotation mid-season. Gausman now has a mediocre 4.59 ERA with a 1.25 WHIP and a 70/20 K/BB ratio over 82 1/3 innings. He'll look for better results at Yankee Stadium next week. Sep 2 - 10:59 PM

Kevin Gausman gave up four runs on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

The right-hander struck out three and walked one on the night. A pair of solo home runs, by Shin-Soo Choo and Chris Gimenez, did the bulk of the damage against Gausman. Now 2-6 on the season, he'll look to improve upon his 4.39 ERA and 1.16 WHIP when he squares off against the Rays on Wednesday.

Kevin Gausman unfurled a nice start in earning a Sunday no-decision against the Twins, yielding just two runs on three hits over seven innings.

Gausman got his lone hiccup out of the way in the first inning, when Miguel Sano touched him up for a two-run home run. He allowed just one hit over his next six innings of work, but Zach Britton would blow a 3-2 ninth inning lead to deny him a deserved win. With this nice start under Gausman's belt, the 24-year-old right-hander now holds a 4.30 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 66/17 K/BB ratio in 73 1/3 innings. A road showdown with the Rangers is up next for the youngster as he looks to build some momentum heading toward September.

Kevin Gausman notched a quality start, giving up three runs in six innings, but took the loss versus the Mets on Tuesday.

Curtis Granderson did most of the damage, hitting solo home runs in the first and fifth innings. Daniel Murphy hit an RBI double in the third. Gausman overall gave up six hits, walked one, and struck out six. The right-hander has had some bright spots since being inserted into the Orioles' rotation in early July, but carries a 4.48 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP and a 58/17 K/BB ratio over 66 1/3 innings. Gausman will face the struggling Twins at home in his next start.
Aug 18 - 10:59 PM

Kevin Gausman pitched well but needed to be perfect Wednesday, allowing three runs over seven innings in a loss to the Mariners.

Gausman could have held the M's to one run and it still wouldn't have mattered, as Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma threw the first no-hitter in the American League this season. Still, the right-hander fanned eight while allowing six hits and walking two. Despite his efforts, Gausman will carry a 2-4 record, 4.48 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into Tuesday's interleague contest against the Mets.
Aug 12 - 6:19 PM

Kevin Gausman was tagged for six runs in 5 2/3 innings by the Angels on Friday.

Buck Showalter tried to get Gausman through six, but it backfired when Chris Iannetta delivered a two-out, two-run double in the inning, giving the Angels a 5-4 lead. Gausman was then charged with a sixth run after Chaz Roe took over. If not for Mike Trout, Gausman likely would have had a better night. But Mike Trout's is pretty good, so we'll let it go.
Aug 8 - 1:37 AM

Kevin Gausman evened his record at 2-2 Saturday in a win over the Tigers.

He limited Detroit to four hits and two runs over seven solid innings. Gausman struck out six without allowing a walk. The 24-year-old hadn't won a decision since April 7. He'll look for win No. 3 next time out against the Angels.
Aug 1 - 10:01 PM

Kevin Gausman took a no-decision, pitching 7 2/3 scoreless innings in Monday's 11-inning, 2-1 victory against the Braves.

It was a tight-knit pitcher's duel between Gausman and Alex Wood as neither team could score through eight innings. Gausman scattered six hits and a walk while striking out five. Now with four starts under his belt since being recalled, two have been great, one has been mediocre, and one has been awful, resulting in an overall 4.20 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 34/12 K/BB ratio over 40 2/3 innings. Gausman matches up with the Tigers at home next.
Jul 27 - 10:42 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed four runs in six innings, taking the loss on Wednesday to the Yankees.

The Yankees jumped on him early, as Brett Gardner hit an RBI single and Mark Teixeira delivered a two-run home run. Alex Rodriguez added a solo homer in the fifth. On the evening, Gausman gave up six hits and two walks while striking out four. The right-hander has had mixed results in four starts this year and carries an overall 5.18 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP and a 29/11 K/BB ratio over 33 innings. Gausman will open up a homestand next week against the Braves in his next start.

Orioles recalled RHP Kevin Gausman from Triple-A Norfolk.

Gausman will return to the Orioles' starting rotation on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium. There's been talk of the 24-year-old being shopped ahead of the July 31 trade deadline, though the asking price is probably sky-high. Gausman has an underwhelming 4.31 ERA in 188 career major league innings, but he still carries lofty upside and he's under club control through 2020.
Jul 22 - 4:51 PM

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Orioles "appear willing to talk about" Kevin Gausman in potential trades.

Gausman hasn't reached his upside yet in his 188 innings so far with the Orioles, posting a 4.31 ERA. But, he's just 24 and has one of the more intriguing young arms in the game. If the O's do indeed decide to part with him as they look to load up for a playoff run, plenty of clubs will be interested.
Jul 22 - 2:15 PM

Kevin Gausman will rejoin the Orioles' rotation on Wednesday in New York.

The Orioles sent Gausman down before the break until they needed a fifth starter again. Manager Buck Showalter on Saturday wouldn't commit to keeping Gausman in the rotation for the rest of the season, but he'll be given the chance to run with the fifth starter job. It's been an up-and-down 2015 for the righty, as he holds a 5.00 ERA with 25 strikeouts over 27 innings.
Jul 19 - 8:39 AM

Kevin Gausman will return to the Orioles rotation following the All-Star Break.

Gausman was optioned on July 7 and there was some speculation that he wouldn't get another chance in the rotation, particularly following a disastrous seven-run performance against the Twins in his last start. The plan for now is that Gausman will make two starts in the minors over the break and then rejoin the team. He holds a 5.00 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over 23 1/3 innings, though that's obviously inflated quite a bit by the bummer of a start against Minnesota.
Jul 10 - 4:42 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Kevin Gausman to Triple-A Norfolk.

With an off day on Thursday, the O's don't need a fifth starter for the rest of the first half. Gausman was knocked around for eight runs -- seven earned -- over 3 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Twins but should get another shot at the start of the second half.
Jul 7 - 11:55 PM

Kevin Gausman was battered early in Tuesday's loss to the Twins, giving up eight runs -- seven earned -- over 3 2/3 innings.

Gausman didn't seem to have much idea where the ball was going, giving up seven hits and a walk while throwing two wild pitches in the outing. In his defense, three of the eight runs allowed scored after Gausman had left the game. The start was easily the worst of his three thus far -- he'd allowed just eight earned runs over 23 1/3 innings this year before Tuesday's start. Gausman will carry a 5.00 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into the All-Star break.
