|Kevin Gausman lasts five innings in last regular season start |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/25/14) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman lasted only five innings in his final regular season start on Thursday against the Yankees. He allowed two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out five in 6-5 defeat.
His only blemish came in the opening frame when Derek Jeter -- playing in his final game at Yankee Stadium -- lined a two-run double off the left field wall. Of his 97 pitches, 65 were strikes.
Gausman finishes the regular season 7-7 with a 3.57 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP over 20 starts. He posted an 88:38 K:BB ratio in 113 1/3 innings. His next start will come in the postseason.
|Orioles shuffle starting rotation |

(9/22/14) The Orioles will start right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez at the Yankees on Tuesday, allowing them to stick to their plan of giving each of their starting pitchers an extra day of rest heading into the postseason.
"There's a fine line between not having enough rest and having too much rest, so we're trying to have every guy that pitches get one extra day before the start," manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun. “We're going to try to give everybody, so you're not too far away from the ball but you get a little extra rest. They all seem to respond well to that."
While left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start Monday at the Yankees, right-hander Chris Tillman won't start again until Friday at Toronto. Miguel Gonzalez will start the team's final game Sunday at Toronto.
As of now, Bud Norris and Kevin Gausman are scheduled to start Wednesday's and Thursday's games at the Yankees, but that could change. Jimenez could end up making a second start before season's end.
|Kevin Gausman to test finger Sunday |

(9/20/14) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman said Saturday that the blister on his middle finger feels better, and he'll throw Sunday to test it, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Gausman developed the blister in the first inning but didn't come out of the game until after his fifth frame. He expects to be good to go to make his next start.

(9/20/14) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman left with a blister Friday, according to the Baltimore Sun.

|Kevin Gausman avoids the loss Friday |

(9/19/14) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman avoided the loss Friday against the Red Sox.
Gausman allowed three runs, two earned, on seven hits over five innings. He struck out three and did not issue any walks during the outing. Gausman was solid early, turning in three straight scoring innings to open the game. Things took a turn in the fourth, as the inning started with two solo home runs. He allowed an additional run in the fifth inning on an error. The run did not count as earned.
The Orioles managed a comeback, giving Gausman a no-decision. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.
|Kevin Gausman barely qualifies for this list, having come within 2 1/3 innings of losing his rookie eligibility in a year when the Orioles repeatedly shuttled him between the majors and minors. Most Fantasy owners don't remember him too fondly after he failed to meet the hype upon his initial callup in May, but the truth is he probably wasn't ready. The Orioles only drafted him one year earlier. Gausman has terrific stuff, boasting a fastball that touches 99 mph, but he's still working on the rest of his arsenal. His final 15 appearances for the Orioles last year came in relief, and he posted a 3.52 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings in that role. His upside is too high for the Orioles to confine him there long term, though, so unless he forces his way into the rotation with a dominant spring training, he's probably destined for Triple-A Norfolk, where he could stand to get a little more work. Gausman should eventually pair with Dylan Bundy to give the Orioles one of the best one-two punches in baseball, but for now, he's just hoping for a midseason callup. His relief pitcher eligibility gives him added appeal in Head-to-Head formats, but he's more of an AL-only option on Draft Day.
