(7/4/2014) Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman will be called up to make a start Sunday in Boston. It remains to be seen if this promotion is permanent.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday starting pitcher Chris Tillman will start on regular rest Wednesday against the Rangers.

Kevin Gausman struggles in return against Rays


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) Those who criticized the Orioles for sending down Kevin Gausman after three excellent starts gained some justificiation when he struggled mightily Friday in his first outing since his recall.

Gausman gave up runs in all the even innings he pitched against Tampa Bay. He finished having yielded five earned runs on seven hits in five innings. His velocity was down as he walked four and fanned just one.

Gausman served as the 26th man for the doubleheader, and was sent back to Triple-A Norfolk shortly after the game. 


Kevin Gausman called up, ready to start Friday opener


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) What was anticipated is now official: Kevin Gausman has been promoted from Triple-A Norfolk to start Game 1 of the Friday doubleheader for the Orioles against Tampa Bay.

Gausman, who was battered in a one-inning minor league stint Monday, had been lights-out in his last three starts with Baltimore. He was 3-0 with two runs allowed in 19 innings during that stretch.


Kevin Gausman roughed up at Triple-A


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman allowed two earned runs on three hits in one inning Monday at Triple-A Norfolk. However, it was just a side session for Gausman, who will be recalled to start one of Friday's doubleheader games against the Rays, notes MASNSports.com.

Kevin Gausman to pitch one inning Monday in minors


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Orioles starter Kevin Gausman will throw one inning for Triple-A Norfolk on Monday, reports MASNSports.com. It's akin to a bullpen session between starts.

Gausman is scheduled to start one of Friday's doubleheader games against the Rays. He's 3-1 with a 2.74 ERA in four starts this season.


Kevin Gausman to return to Orioles for Friday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) The demotion of Orioles promising starter Kevin Gausman to Triple-A Norfolk is quite temporary - he will be back up to start one of the Friday doubleheader games.

Gausman certainly wasn't sent down due to poor performance. He is unbeaten in his last three starts and has given up just two runs in 19 innings during that stretch.


Kevin Gausman sent down Friday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) The Orioles optioned pitcher Kevin Gausman to Triple-A Norfolk Friday, with a bullpen arm expected to be called up Saturday.

Gausman had been in the rotation for three turns and won each time out, allowing just two runs over 19 innings of work combined. He will have to remain in the minors for at least 10 days, barring an injury that forces someone on the 25-man roster to go on the disabled list.  


Kevin Gausman blanks Rays for six innings


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman tossed six shutout innings Wednesday as Baltimore handled the Rays 2-0. Gausman (3-1) struck out five, walked one and scattered five hits as his ERA plunged to 2.74.

The Rays loaded the bases with no outs in the first, but Gausman struck out Ben Zobrist and James Loney to escape unscathed. Over his last three starts covering 19 innings, Gausman has allowed 14 hits and two earned runs. 

He'll take on the White Sox next Wednesday.


Kevin Gausman to get the start Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Rays.

Gausman was said to be pitching for his rotation spot Thursday, and performed well enough to remain in the rotation. Miguel Gonzalez will start Tuesday, and Gausman will follow him Wednesday.

Gausman posted a 3.71 ERA over 17 innings. 


Kevin Gausman making strong case to remain in rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman made a solid impression with a quality start, improving to 2-1 on the year Thursday night against the Blue Jays. The right-hander permitted one run on five hits and three walks while striking out three in six innings of a 4-2 victory.

Gausman owns a 3.71 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP through three starts (17 innings). It remains to ve seen if he'll stay in the rotation.

"I feel good about what I've done. Not my decision, so whatever happens will be for the club's best interest," Gausman said after the game, per MASN Sports.

Kevin Gausman pitching for rotation spot Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman is pitching for a rotation spot Thursday, according to MASN.

Miguel Gonzalez, who Gausman replaced in the rotation, is getting close to being activated, which could signal Gausman being kicked out of the rotation. Manager Buck Showalter left some reason for optimism, though, saying Gausman could remain a starter if he "pitches next time like he pitched last time." 

In his last start, Gausman held the Athletics to one run over seven innings. The Orioles haven't exactly made it easy on him. Gausman has faced the Tigers and Athletics in his first two starts, and will take on the Blue Jays Thursday. All three teams boast top-10 offenses this season. 


Kevin Gausman still has his faults


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/9/2014) Equipped with a 98 mph fastball and boasting the pedigree of a top draft pick, Kevin Gausman is as talented as any pitcher who will come up to the big leagues this year. And if you want to own him for no other reason than that, I wouldn't fault you for it.

But even after his gem against the Athletics Saturday, I have my doubts about his major-league readiness.

His problem is more or less the same as Tony Cingrani's: He's lacking a third pitch. And when he's extended deep into games, it shows. That's why he dominated the Tigers for four innings in his first start this year before falling apart in the fifth. It's also why he was so much more effective as a reliever than a starter during his time in the majors last year.

And judging by how manager Buck Showalter described Saturday's start, saying Gausman "got enough breaking balls over to show a third pitch," the 23-year-old's arsenal is still a work in progress.

Maybe his stuff will be good enough to minimize his growing pains, but based on what we've seen from him so far in his career, I have my doubts.


Kevin Gausman to start Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman will get another start Thursday, according to MASN.

Gausman performed well Saturday, giving up just one run over seven innings. Gausman has a chance to earn a regular spot in the rotation based on how he pitches with Miguel Gonzalez sidelined. 


Kevin Gausman tosses seven one-run innings in win vs. A's


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman shined in his second start of the season Saturday, giving up just one earned run on four hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out six to pick up a win in his team's 6-3 victory over the A's.

Gausman (1-1) was rocked in his first start in mid-May, but the highly-regarded prospect was back with the Orioles Saturday to fill in for the injured Miguel Gonzalez. His only blemish came on a third-inning solo home run. Gausman owns a 4.91 ERA and 8:3 K:BB ratio in 11 innings over his two starts. He could be tabbed to make Thursday's start against the Blue Jays.


Wait and see on Kevin Gausman


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/6/2014) I touched on it Thursday, but just to follow up now that it's official, Kevin Gausman's return to the Orioles rotation Saturday isn't a rush-to-the-waiver-wire type of event.

His numbers between the majors and minors the last two years suggest he's still very much a work in progress. Only once this season has he gone even six innings in nine starts at Triple-A Norfolk, and he ran out of steam in the fifth inning in his spot start against the Tigers earlier this season, allowing all five of his earned runs then.

He has a hard fastball and plenty of strikeout potential, but his lack of an effective third pitch has sabotaged him so far in the majors. It's why he was so much more effective in 15 relief appearances than five starts last year.

Maybe he'll have a breakthrough and become the ace the Orioles envision him being this time around, but if you're already feeling the roster crunch, no need to force the issue with him.


Kevin Gausman set to start Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) The Orioles have announced that right-hander Kevin Gausman will start Saturday against Oakland. He was recalled Friday due to an injury that will likely send Miguel Gonzalez to the disabled list.

Kevin Gausman joins Orioles; could start Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) The Orioles have apparently recalled premier pitching prospect Kevin Gausman from Triple-A Norfolk. He has joined the team, MASNsports.com has reported.

The 23-year-old Gausman, who could start Saturday against Oakland, struggled in his first stints with Baltimore in 2013 and 2014. He was rocked for five earned runs on six hits in four innings against Detroit in his lone outing this season.


Kevin Gausman's coming back! Get excited ... ?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) As I wrote in the latest Prospects Report, Orioles starting pitcher Kevin Gausman is the fifth-best minor-leaguer to stash in single-season leagues, but I included an important caveat.

He has already failed several times over.

Though he showed flashes of potential in his 20 appearances, including five starts, in the majors last year, he was a continual source of frustration for Fantasy owners. And even in his spot start against the Tigers earlier this year, he finished with an ugly line after dominating for the first four innings.

The possible reasons for his bumpy transition are outlined in the column, so I won't repeat them here. But the fact he's only once gone even six innings in his nine starts at Triple-A this season suggests he's still a work in progress.

Gausman still has a crazy high ceiling, and no one can predict exactly when it'll click for him. But even with reports of him potentially getting the call Saturday, I'm not rushing to add him in leagues where I'm not desperate for pitching.


Kevin Gausman could get the call Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) With the Orioles' Saturday starter up in the air, prospect Kevin Gausman's start at Triple-A Norfolk was cut short after just one inning Wednesday.

Miguel Gonzalez was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday with a side injury, with Saturday's start Chris Tillman stepping in to start in his place. Gonzalez may be able to go Saturday, but needs to be cleared before the team makes a decision on that. Gausman will likely be tapped if a starter is needed Saturday, according to MASNSports.com.


Kevin Gausman making case to rejoin rotation


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Orioles prospect Kevin Gausman is 1-2 with a 2.93 ERA in his past three starts at Triple A-Norfolk as he states his case to return to the major-league rotation, reports the Baltimore Sun. Gausman made one start in the majors this year, allowing five earned runs in four innings May 14 against the Tigers.

Report: Orioles lead for Jeff Samardzija


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) The Orioles are considered the leader for Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija, according to CBSChicago.com.

The two sides have mutual interest in a deal. Baltimore would acquire Samardzija, who is under team control through next season. The Cubs are scouting the Orioles top pitching prospects, including Kevin Gausman and Dylan Bundy. Samardzija has done everything possible to boost his trade value. Through 75 innings, he has a 1.68 ERA.
