Orioles shuffle starting rotation


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) 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.

Manager giving Kevin Gausman a pass for Sunday's outing


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Orioles starting pitcher Kevin Gausman had one of his worst starts of the season Sunday at Oakland, allowing five runs on nine hits and two walks in four innings.

"I think they were just really aggressive, and I think you get confidence as a hitter when you get a couple hits in a game, and I think everybody had a hit off me today," Gausman said, per The Baltimore Sun. "That’s tough for when our guys come in. I really didn’t establish the fastball in as much as I did the first time I faced them, so it kind of takes away that outer half."

Gausman had entered play Sunday with a 4-1 record and 2.36 ERA in his previous six starts. It seems manager Buck Showalter isn't putting too much stock into one bad outing, especially since it was Gausman's first one after the All-Star break.

"I thought stuffwise he was OK," Showalter said of Gausman's performance Sunday. "You’ve got starters with six, seven days in between. You’ve got relief pitchers with seven, eight, nine, 10 days [in between]. It’s tough to get back in. Can you imagine hitters going seven to 10 days without getting any at bats? … You kind of give them a little pass knowing that it’s going to get better moving forward."

Gausman owns a 4.04 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP over his first eight starts (42 1/3 innings). He has allowed five earned runs in two of his last four outings. He'll look to pick up the pieces Friday at Seattle.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman is ready to perform during the second half, according to the Baltimore Sun

Gausman has had a difficult first half. He's performed well over seven starts in the majors, but has found himself alternating between the majors and minors multiple times. That could change during the second half. Gausman is already slated to start Sunday's game against Oakland, but the club has been mum on his status following that start. Manager Buck Showalter has made comments about having six possible rotation members, but has also indicated Gausman's talent.

Showalter did seem to indicate Gausman would get an extended look soon. "He'll get an opportunity after the break, and we'll see where it takes us," he said. "I'll tell you what, there's five other [starters] here who have a better track record right now. He knows he's gonna earn it."

Gausman has posted a 3.29 ERA over 38 1/3 innings in the majors this season.
