Kevin Gausman allowed five runs -- four earned -- over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.
The good news is Gausman didn't appear to be affected at all by the minor intercostal strain he dealt with in his last start. However, he wasn't terribly sharp in this one, yielding seven hits -- including a homer homers -- and two walks. Gausman has been the Orioles' best starter for the last month but has struggled his last two times out. He'll conclude his regular season Sunday in the Bronx. Sep 27 - 10:28 PM

Date:

Kevin Gausman (intercostal) felt good during Saturday's bullpen session and will start Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Gausman felt some oblique soreness after his last start but said it was just a cramp. He had been scheduled to start Sunday against the Diamondbacks but Dylan Bundy will get the nod instead with Gausman slotting in after the team's off day on Monday. Despite an 8-11 record, Gausman leads the Orioles in ERA (3.57) and strikeouts (166) this season.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Kevin Gausman (intercostal) is feeling better and is expected to be ready to start Tuesday or Wednesday.

Gausman had to be pushed back from Sunday with a minor intercostal issue, but the O's expect him to be fine. If the right-hander is ready to take the ball on Tuesday, he would have time to get in two starts before the end of the regular season.
Sep 23 - 4:38 PM

Kevin Gausman will not start on Sunday against the Diamondbacks due to soreness in his intercostal area.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter thinks the ailment could have been caused by Gausman being a bit dehydrated. He's hopeful that the injury is minor and that the right-hander will be ready to pitch on Tuesday or Wednesday in Toronto. "He’s got a little something bothering him that we think should manage hopefully by Tuesday or Wednesday," Showalter said. "We hope he’s our starting pitcher Tuesday or Wednesday, that’s what we’re hoping for. It won’t be Sunday. We have an off-day there to play with, see how things manage the next few days." Dylan Bundy will be moved up to start Sunday.
Sep 22 - 6:05 PM

Kevin Gausman was charged with five runs over 6 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

Gausman wasn't nearly as sharp as he has been lately, as he gave up 10 hits -- including a pair of home runs -- while walking one. Orioles manager Buck Showalter probably left him in too long, as his 101st and final pitch of the night was a three-run homer served up to David Ortiz. Gausman entered the start having allowed just three runs over his last five outings. He'll face the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Sep 20 - 11:10 PM

Kevin Gausman shut out the Red Sox for eight innings Wednesday in Baltimore's 1-0 victory.

Gausman has been one of the AL's unluckiest pitchers this year and he was going up against perhaps it's luckiest in Porcello, but it didn't matter tonight; Gausman was just that good. He's pitched scoreless ball in four of his last five starts, and he's now 8-10 with a 3.43 ERA overall. The Orioles won two out of three in Boston to pull within one game of the Red Sox.
Sep 14 - 11:27 PM

Kevin Gausman logged a quality start in Friday's loss to the Tigers, surrendering three runs on seven hits over his six frames.

The right-hander racked up seven strikeouts on the night while walking three. The Tigers scratched out a run in the second inning then added a pair on a two-run single by J.D. Martinez in the fifth. Gausman has done a nice job overall this season, compiling a 3.61 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 155/42 K/BB ratio over 152 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column on Thursday when he takes on the Rays.
Sep 9 - 10:16 PM

Kevin Gausman struck out eight over six scoreless innings in the Orioles' 2-0 shutout of the Yankees on Saturday.

Gausman yielded just two hits, both singles, while walking two in the win. He's now got an impressive 19-inning scoreless streak over his last three starts, all wins. The right-hander is 7-10 on the year but with a much more attractive 3.58 ERA through 25 starts. Gausman will try to keep the streak of zeroes going when he takes on the Tigers on Friday.
Sep 3 - 11:11 PM

Kevin Gausman was sharp in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Yankees, striking out nine over seven shutout innings.

Gausman wasn't unhittable -- he scattered seven of them -- but this was perhaps his best overall start of the season. The flame-throwing right-hander did not walk a batter on the afternoon and finished his seven brilliant innings having thrown 108 pitches (75 strikes). Gausman has not allowed a run in either of his past two starts. For the season as a whole, the 25-year-old holds a 3.73 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 140/38 K/BB ratio over 140 innings. The Yankees will have the displeasure of facing him again in Camden Yards next time he takes the mound.
Aug 28 - 4:55 PM

Kevin Gausman twirled six shutout innings in Tuesday's 8-1 victory over the Nationals.

It wasn't all that pretty, as Gausman recorded only two strikeouts and needed 110 pitches to get through his six frames. However, five of the six hits he gave up were singles and he managed to keep the Nats off the scoreboard in his best start in a month. Gausman will carry a 3.92 ERA into the Bronx this weekend.
Aug 23 - 11:23 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed five runs -- four earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Astros on Thursday.

Gausman gave up two home runs among his seven hits allowed, with both coming in the sixth inning or later. Gausman was surely given a little longer leash Thursday after his teammates gave up 15 runs of support. The win moved him to 4-10 overall, with a 4.11 ERA and 1.32 WHIP through 22 starts. An interleague date with the Nationals is up next on Tuesday.
Aug 18 - 10:32 PM

Kevin Gausman lasted only four innings while giving up two runs in a loss to the Giants on Saturday.

He was removed early because it took him 97 pitches to get through four frames. He struck out nine batters and gave up only two hits but mixed in six walks. His record falls to 3-10 and he hasn't won a road start in almost two years. The 25-year-old has a 4.04 ERA with 121 strikeouts and 35 walks in 120 1/3 innings.
Aug 14 - 12:48 AM

Kevin Gausman was on top of his game on Wednesday, surrendering two runs in seven innings to beat the Rangers 3-2.

He gave up seven hits and one walk while striking out seven. He has a very good 106/27 K/BB ratio in 110 1/3 innings but has been homer-prone, allowing 20 home runs in his 19 starts. He will take a 3-8 record and 4.08 ERA into a two-start week coming up.
Aug 3 - 9:56 PM

Kevin Gausman was hammered in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday night, allowing six runs on six hits in only three innings.

The right-hander walked three and struck out four in the ballgame. The Jays jumped on him early in this one, with Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion and Troy Tulowitzki each belting solo homers in the first inning. They pushed across three more runs in the third inning to chase Gausman. Now 2-8 on the season, he'll bring a 4.18 ERA and 1.32 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Rangers.
Jul 29 - 10:15 PM

Kevin Gausman shut out the Indians for seven innings, striking out seven, walking three and giving up only four hits as the Orioles won 5-2 on Saturday.

The win was only the second of the season for Gausman even though he has pitched well. His record improves to 2-7 with a 3.77 ERA in 17 starts. He has fanned 95 batters and walked only 23 in 100 1/3 innings.
