Kevin Gausman traveled with the Orioles for their weekend series in Chicago.
It's a good sign that he's expected to receive at least one more start. The expectation had been that Gausman would be sent down after a spot start Thursday, but he was so good over 6 1/3 scoreless innings that it appears the O's are keeping him around. Gausman could permanently supplant the disappointing Bud Norris in the rotation if he keeps pitching well. Jul 3 - 9:48 AM

Kevin Gausman dazzled in a spot start against the Rangers on Thursday, racking up seven strikeouts over 6 1/3 scoreless innings.

Gausman surrendered just four hits and two walks in the impressive outing. While he's supposed to be heading back to Triple-A Norfolk, it's hard to envision the Orioles keeping the struggling Bud Norris in the rotation much longer with Gausman ready to take over. His fantasy value the remainder of the season entirely hinges on him securing a spot in the starting rotation.

Orioles recalled RHP Kevin Gausman from Triple-A Norfolk.

Tyler Wilson was sent down in the corresponding roster move. Thursday's start against Texas will be Gausman's second of the season. He scattered two runs over five innings in a no-decision June 20 against Toronto. The Orioles played a doubleheader on Sunday and want to keep their starters on normal rest. Gausman will probably return to Norfolk after Thursday's outing.
Jul 2 - 2:55 PM

Kevin Gausman will be recalled to start on Thursday versus the Rangers.

The Orioles considered starting Gausman for one of the games during Sunday's doubleheader, but he'll make an abbreviated start for Triple-A Norfolk instead before taking the ball for the O's on Thursday. Gausman has compiled a 4.24 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 14/6 K/BB ratio over 17 innings with the big league club this season.
Jun 28 - 9:53 AM

Kevin Gausman will be recalled from Triple-A to start one game in Sunday's doubleheader against the Indians.

Chris Tillman, who was scheduled to start on Saturday, is expected to work in the other game. Gausman has compiled a 4.24 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 14/6 K/BB ratio over 17 innings with the big league club this season.
Jun 27 - 2:06 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Kevin Gausman to Triple-A Norfolk.

Gausman was solid in a spot start Sunday against the Blue Jays, allowing two runs on four hits over his five frames. The O's have decided to keep him stretched out as a starter rather than using him in a relief role.
Jun 21 - 11:12 AM

Kevin Gausman pitched well in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday, allowing two runs on four hits over his five frames.

The right-hander walked one and struck out one on the afternoon, though he needed 91 pitches to fight through five innings. It's unclear if he'll remain in the rotation to make another start next week, or if he'll be shifted back to his role as the long man in the Orioles bullpen.
Jun 20 - 4:12 PM

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

Gausman has been on the shelf since May 7 due to tendinitis in his right shoulder. With Mike Wright being optioned to Triple-A on Saturday, the door is open for Gausman to secure a spot in the O's rotation with a strong effort on Saturday against the Blue Jays.
Jun 20 - 11:23 AM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) has been cleared to start Saturday against the Blue Jays.

He's been out since May 7 with tendinitis in his right shoulder. Gausman had a 4.50 ERA in 12 innings of relief before landing on the disabled list and isn't a very attractive fantasy option against the lethal Toronto offense.
Jun 17 - 5:40 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed four runs on four hits over 3 1/3 innings in his minor league rehab start with Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.

While he struck out four on the day, Gausman threw just 35 of his 61 pitches for strikes and did surrender a pair of home runs. He's likely to need at least one more rehab outing before becoming an option for the Orioles.
Jun 11 - 7:54 PM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) threw a two-inning simulated game Tuesday without issue.

The next step for Gausman will be a three-inning minor league rehab start Saturday with High-A Frederick. If all continues to go smoothly, he should be an option for the Orioles around the middle of June. Though it's not exactly clear what his role will be.
Jun 2 - 5:47 PM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) is scheduled to make starts June 6 and June 11 at Triple-A Norfolk.

That assumes he gets through his final simulated game without issue. Gausman has been on the self since early May with tendinitis in his right shoulder and it's not clear when he might return to the major leagues. It's also unclear what his role will be once he does make it back to Baltimore.
May 28 - 11:54 AM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a two-inning simulated game on June 2.

Gausman first has to make it through a bullpen session Tuesday and a live batting practice session Friday. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since early May with shoulder tendinitis. It's not exactly clear what his role will be once he's deemed ready to pitch in major league games.
May 25 - 11:37 AM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) will throw live batting practice on Saturday.

Gausman has expanded his sessions of catch to 60 feet and will move back to 90 feet on Thursday before stepping on the mound. The goal is for him to throw a simulated game on May 27. Working his way back from right shoulder tendinitis, will join Triple-A Norfolk's rotation when ready, but the open spot for him with the Orioles may still be in the bullpen.
May 20 - 8:59 AM

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) could throw a simulated game on May 27.

He'll need to get through some flat ground and bullpen session before that. Gausman is slated for Triple-A Norfolk's rotation once healthy but could eventually rejoin the Orioles in a relief role.
May 17 - 12:00 PM
