Kevin Gausman took home a win against the Rangers on Wednesday by allowing just one run in six innings.
His only mistake was a solo home run by Joey Gallo in the fifth inning. Gausman has been wildly inconsistent this season with more bad games than good ones. Today's game definitely fell in the latter category. He struck out eight batters, walked two and surrendered four base hits. His record improves to 6-7 with an ugly 6.11 ERA and a frightful 1.75 WHIP. Jul 19 - 10:43 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said demoting Kevin Gausman to the minor leagues is "always a possibility."

Gausman was arguably the Orioles' best starter last year but has struggled to a miserable 6.39 ERA in 2017 and is coming off a dreadful start Friday against the Cubs (3 IP, 7 H, 8 ER). The right-hander clearly isn't fooling anyone as opponents have hit .323 against him this season. Surely the O's would prefer to keep Gausman in the rotation but another bad outing could force their hand.
Jul 15 - 6:37 PM

Kevin Gausman was clobbered in a no-decision against the Cubs on Friday, giving up eight runs on seven hits in just three innings.

Gausman fanned five and walked one on the night. His trouble in this one came from his inability to keep the ball in the yard, with Willson Contreras, Kyle Schwarber, Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward each taking him deep. The right-hander will carry a horrifying 6.39 ERA and 1.79 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rangers.
Jul 14 - 11:39 PM

Kevin Gausman will start the first game after the All-Star break for the Orioles on Friday versus the Cubs.

He'll be followed by Wade Miley, while Dylan Bundy will bring up the rear as the fifth starter as the O's look to limit his workload. Chris Tillman is likely to start the fourth game, which presumably means Ubaldo Jimenez would go third if he's still in the rotation.
Jul 9 - 12:49 PM

Kevin Gausman held the Twins scoreless for three innings before stumbling, allowing six runs -- five earned -- on nine hits over four-plus innings Friday.

It was a tale of two performances, really. Through three innings, Gausman had kept the Twins in check, registering five strikeouts without allowing a run. Then, in the fourth, he gave up four straight one-out singles and plated another run with a bases loaded HBP. A triple, a double, a throwing error and a single in the fourth spelled the end for the 26-year-old, who's struggled to find his way in the season's first half. At the break, Gausman is 5-7 with a 5.85 ERA and 1.76 WHIP.
Jul 8 - 1:50 AM

Kevin Gausman tossed seven innings of shutout ball while striking out nine in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Rays.

Gausman brought a bloated 6.07 ERA and 1.84 WHIP into the outing, but you would not have been able to tell by his performance against the Rays. He allowed just two hits, struck out nine and walked two in his seven innings of work, finishing up his outing having thrown 112 pitches (71 strikes). His final start before the All-Star break will come on the road against the Twins.
Jul 2 - 4:21 PM

Kevin Gausman was terrific in Tuesday's victory over the Blue Jays, scattering four hits and two walks over 5 1/3 scoreless innings.

The right-hander punched out four on the night. While he has been nothing but a disaster for most of the season, he seems to own the Blue Jays and continues to pitch well against them each time out. He'll look to further improve upon a horrifying 6.07 ERA and 1.84 WHIP when he does battle against the Rays on Sunday.
Jun 27 - 10:14 PM

Kevin Gausman yielded three runs while fanning nine batters in 5 2/3 innings and took a loss to the Indians on Wednesday.

The big blow was a two-run shot by Francisco Lindor in the fifth inning. He gave up six hits and two walks as his disappointing season continued. Gausman falls to 3-7 with an ugly 6.47 ERA after 16 starts. His game has taken a big step backward after turning in a 3.61 ERA in 30 starts a year ago. The 26-year-old could find himself back in the minors soon.
Jun 22 - 12:01 AM

Kevin Gausman was crushed again in Friday's loss to the Cardinals, giving up five runs on nine hits in his 5 2/3 innings of work.

The right-hander also walked three while striking out seven on the evening. Paul DeJong was responsible for inflicting most of the damage against him, with a two-run homer in the fourth and an RBI single in the sixth. Gausman has been a dumpster fire for most of the season, checking in with a 6.60 ERA and 1.92 WHIP. He shouldn't be started in any fantasy leagues at this point for Wednesday's start against the Indians.
Jun 16 - 10:14 PM

Kevin Gausman was obliterated for seven runs on eight hits over 3 1/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

It was not quite as hide-the-children bad as Chris Tillman's start on Saturday, but it was still pretty bad. He surrendered five runs in the first inning, low-lighted by a three-run homer surrendered to Gary Sanchez, and two more runs in the fourth inning. He walked six on the afternoon and had the Yankees capitalized more ruthlessly, this outing could have been even more of a disaster for the O's. Gasuman will carry a bloated 6.49 ERA and 1.90 WHIP into a home start against the Cardinals next time out as he tries to forget that Sunday ever happened.
Jun 11 - 5:36 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed four runs in 6 2/3 innings Tuesday in a no-decision versus the Pirates.

Gausman has stopped getting lit up like he was in April, but he's not giving anyone any reason to be excited that a breakthrough is coming. He's topped five strikeouts just once in 13 starts this year. Overall, he's surrendered 90 hits in 65 innings.
Jun 6 - 11:19 PM

Kevin Gausman yielded three runs -- two earned -- in 5 1/3 innings and snared a win against the Yankees on Wednesday.

He gave up eight hits and struggled to throw strikes (he issued five free passes) but held on long enough to get credit for the victory as the Orioles piled on the run support. He gave up just the one unearned run through the first four frames before surrendering two earned runs in the fifth. The young right-hander has been wildly inconsistent this season, although he has been trending in the right direction of late. He has a 3-4 record with a 5.92 ERA through 12 starts. He has 42 strikeouts and 27 walks in 59 1/3 innings.
May 31 - 11:31 PM

Kevin Gausman yielded two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the Astros on Friday.

Gausman gave up solo shots to Jake Marisnick and Carlos Beltran. It was a strong outing on the whole, as he struck out a pair and walked none, but it was enough to put him on the losing side. Gausman still owns an ugly 6.17 ERA on the year, but he has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three out of his last four starts. He’s moving in the right direction, at least.
May 26 - 11:38 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed two earned runs while scattering a season-high 10 hits over six innings in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Gausman allowed just one walk with five strikeouts while his fastball was clocked regularly at 97-98 mph even into his final inning. "I liked the way he finished the sixth inning. Kevin has been frustrated. We all know he's capable of better and that was," manager Buck Showalter said. Gausman took a step in the right direction, posting his second quality start over his past seven outings.
May 21 - 1:41 AM

Kevin Gausman struggled in a no-decision against the Royals on Sunday, surrendering five runs on nine hits over 3 1/3 innings.

The right-hander walked two and struck out three on the afternoon. After two strong outings his last two times out, this was an unexpected disaster against one of the worst offensive clubs in the American League. All of the damage came in the fourth inning, with a three-run homer by Mike Moustakas provided the bulk of the damage. He'll bring a troublesome 7.19 ERA and 1.86 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Blue Jays.
