Orioles manager Buck Showalter said during a radio interview Thursday that Kevin Gausman isn't going anywhere.
Showalter, as relayed by MASN's Roch Kubatko, said teams can ask about trading for the pitcher but that he won't be dealt this winter. The Cubs reportedly had interest in Gausman earlier this offseason, and he's been rumored to be the object of the Rockies' affection in any trade talks for an outfielder. Gausman owned a 4.25 ERA with 103 strikeouts in 112 1/3 innings in 2015. Jan 14 - 6:50 PM

Julie DiCaro of 670 The Score in Chicago reports that the Cubs are interested in Kevin Gausman.

DiCaro adds that the Orioles are interested in both Jorge Soler and Javier Baez, although it's unclear at this point how serious discussions between the two clubs might be. Gausman hasn't pitched to the level that many think he can reach yet, but he's under team control through 2019 and has huge upside.

Kevin Gausman said Tuesday that he "can see like a hawk" after undergoing LASIK surgery three days after the season ended.

"I see 20-15 now," Gausman said. "I can see like a hawk. It's been great." The right-hander will now be able to ditch the goggles he used to wear on the mound and the improved eyesight surely can only help. Gausman has a huge arm and has shown flashes of brilliance with the Orioles the last three seasons but will be looking to have a true breakout season in 2016.

Kevin Gausman struck out 10 batters and allowed only one run over eight innings to beat the Blue Jays in game two of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Not to diminish Gausman's great night, but the Blue Jays rested all of their regulars after clinching the division in game one of the doubleheader. He limited the Jays to five hits without issuing a walk. Gausman ends his season on a high note, carrying a 4.25 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and a 103/29 K/BB ratio over 112 1/3 innings.

Kevin Gausman surrendered five runs over five innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Friday.

Rich Hill was dealing on the other side, but Gausman struggled, giving up five runs and three walks. The five runs were the most he had allowed in a start since way back on August 6. The young right-hander will attempt to bounce back when he makes his final start of the season next week against the Blue Jays.

Kevin Gausman left with a no-decision after yielding four runs in six innings as the Orioles lost to the Rays on Sunday.

Logan Forsythe accounted for most of the damage, slugging a three-run home run in the fifth inning to give the Rays a 4-3 lead. It was one of eight hits he gave up along with a walk and six strikeouts. Since joining the rotation on July 2, Gausman has a 4.26 ERA across 14 starts. He's tabbed to face the Red Sox in a road start this weekend.

Kevin Gausman picked up the win on Monday versus the Red Sox after firing six shutout innings.

The young right-hander walked four, but allowed only two hits while striking out seven. Both hits were singles. Gausman now has a 4.15 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and an 82/25 K/BB ratio over 93 1/3 innings. He'll look for similar results over the weekend in a road start against the Rays.

Kevin Gausman received a no-decision in limiting the Yankees to one run in five innings as the Orioles took a late lead to win on Tuesday.

Gausman allowed a solo home run to Alex Rodriguez to lead off the sixth inning before he was removed in favor of T.J. McFarland. It was one of six hits he allowed along with a walk and five strikeouts. The young right-hander has been more effective than ineffective in the second half, but overall carries a 4.43 ERA with a 1.26 WHIP and a 75/21 K/BB ratio over 87 1/3 innings. Gausman will try to earn his first win since August 1 when he faces the Red Sox at home next week.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
