Kevin Gausman fired 7 2/3 scoreless innings Saturday as the Orioles defeated the Rays 5-0 in the first game of a doubleheader.
It was his first win in 13 starts this season. Gausman was brilliant, giving up just four hits (all of them singles) while walking none and striking out seven. It was just the second time he had completed seven innings in a start this season. He had allowed 10 runs over his last two starts, so the gem was nice to see. We know the talent is there, but consistency continues to be an issue. The 25-year-old will bring a 3.93 ERA into a start against the Mariners next Friday on the road. Jun 25 - 4:29 PM

Kevin Gausman fell to 0-5 after giving up four runs in five innings Monday against the Rangers.

Gausman deserves some wins; he pitched eight scoreless innings once and has allowed just one run on three other occasions. Still, the run support hasn't been there, and now his ERA has climbed from 3.45 to 4.37 in his last two starts. He'll bounce back, but he's probably not going to have a whole lot of value in mixed leagues.

Kevin Gausman fell to 0-5 after giving up four runs in five innings Monday against the Rangers.

Gausman has certainly earned some victories; he had one start in which he threw eight scoreless innings and three more in which he allowed just one run. Still, the run support hasn't been there for him, and now his ERA has jumped from 3.45 to 4.37 in his last two starts. He'll bounce back, but he's probably not going to have a whole lot of mixed-league value.

Kevin Gausman lasted just three innings and gave up six runs Wednesday in a loss to the Red Sox.

Gausman has given up more than four runs twice in 11 starts this season. Both of those outings have come versus Boston. He has a 3.00 ERA against the rest of the league. Gausman will get two starts next week, one in Texas and one at home versus the Rays. Those aren't the easiest assignments, but he's still a decent play in mixed leagues.
Jun 15 - 10:40 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed eight hits, three runs (two earned), walked two and struck out four during his 6 1/3 innings on Friday versus the Blue Jays but did not factor into the decision.

The hard-throwing young righthander continues his quality season but despite pitching well he has yet to win a game. His record sits at 0-3 with a 3.45 ERA and 54/15 K/BB ratio in 60 innings pitched. The wins are bound to start rolling in soon with the Orioles' strong offense backing him up.
Jun 10 - 11:32 PM

Kevin Gausman was sharp in Sunday's no-decision against the Yankees, allowing one run on seven hits over six innings.

Gausman struck out five and walked two on the afternoon. The only run to score on his watch came when Alex Rodriguez hit a little flare RBI single in the third inning. Gausman will put his 3.52 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 50/13 K/BB ratio (53 2/3 innings) to the test in a road start against the Blue Jays next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 5 - 7:02 PM

Kevin Gausman recorded eight strikeouts but coughed up three home runs and five runs over six frames in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

Gausman served up back-to-back shots to Mookie Betts and Dustin Pedroia to lead off the game and Betts got him again in the second with a three-run shot. The right-hander settled in after that, but by that time the damage was done. Gausman is winless in eight starts but boasts a 3.78 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 45/11 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings. He'll face the Yankees at Camden Yards over the weekend.
May 31 - 10:49 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed four runs over five innings -- all on home runs -- in a loss to the Astros on Thursday.

Gausman gave up just five hits on the evening, but three of them -- two solo blasts by George Springer, and a two-run shot by Luis Valbuena -- left the yard. Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play? Dingers aside, Gausman pitched well, striking out seven while walking one. He owns a 3.24 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with a 37/9 K/BB ratio in seven starts this year, and he'll try to get on the right side of the ledger Tuesday against the Red Sox.
May 26 - 11:29 PM

Kevin Gausman was sharp in taking a no-decision in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Angels, tossing 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

Gausman scattered eight hits while striking out six and walking one. The only run he allowed came when Yunel Escobar worked an RBI single in the seventh inning. The 27-year-old right-hander now holds a sweet 2.70 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 30/8 K/BB ratio in 36 2/3 innings (six starts). He will hit the road less traveled for a date with the Indians next time out.
May 22 - 1:23 AM

Kevin Gausman surrendered four runs on 10 hits over five innings in earning a no-decision against the Tigers on Sunday.

Not much to write home about here. Gausman struck out just one and walked two on the afternoon. The Motor City Kitties landed solitary runs off the right-hander in the first, second, fourth and fifth innings. For the season, he holds a 3.00 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 24/7 K/BB ratio through five starts (30 innings). A road date with the Angels shows next on his schedule.
May 15 - 5:43 PM

Kevin Gausman struck out nine while allowing three runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Twins on Tuesday.

Gausman didn't make many mistakes, but Trevor Plouffe hit one for a two-run homer in the sixth inning, scuttling Gausman's chance at a win. The right-hander gave up five hits and two walks on the evening. Through four starts, he's got a 2.16 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 23/5 K/BB ratio over 25 innings, but still no wins to show for it. Those will come, though, pitching and pitching well for one of the AL's best teams. He'll look for a better result Sunday against the Tigers.
May 10 - 11:24 PM

Kevin Gausman remains on track to start Tuesday against the Twins.

The Orioles and Twins were rained out Monday, but Gausman's schedule won't be impacted. This means he'll remain a two-start option this week. The Orioles have pushed Tyler Wilson back to Wednesday.
May 9 - 8:38 PM

Kevin Gausman scattered three hits over eight scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Thursday.

Gausman and Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka went pitch for pitch through eight innings, with neither factoring in the decision. He struck out four without walking a batter, needing just 97 pitches in the efficient outing. It was easily the best of his three starts thus far, but Gausman has largely been good since making his debut on April 25. He'll take a 1.42 ERA and 0.68 WHIP into Tuesday's start at the Twins.
May 5 - 10:23 PM

Kevin Gausman gave up three runs -- two earned -- over six innings in a no-decision Saturday against the White Sox.

The right-hander was largely good, surrendering just four hits and a walk while striking out three, but his bullpen couldn't hold on to get Gausman his first win. He's been strong in both of his starts since coming off the disabled list, owning a 2.45 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in those starts. He'll seek that elusive first win Friday against the A's.
Apr 30 - 11:11 PM

Kevin Gausman pitched well in his season debut Monday, striking out seven over five frames of one-run ball in a loss to the Rays.

He was out-dueled by Chris Archer, but it was an encouraging showing for Gausman, who was hitting the upper-90s regularly with his heater while flashing a nasty slider. The young righty did need 91 pitches to get through five innings, so he'll need to improve his efficiency. Gausman gets the White Sox this weekend.
