Orioles' Kevin Gausman working more from stretch


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:18 am ET) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman has pitched out of the stretch upon entering his last two appearances despite not having runners on base, and it's a change he made after talking with bullpen coach Dom Chiti, masnsports.com reports.

"I've just been doing it because I talked to Dom about whatever you warm up doing, that's what you continue to do," Gausman said. "I've been coming in with guys on base, so I've been going out of the stretch. Throwing from the windup, my only time doing it before in the game was my warmups, so that's why I did it. Probably my last outing was the first time I did it. It's pretty comfortable, but I definitely need to keep doing it out of the windup just to be ready if I do start one day or if they need a spot starter. Just one of those things you can't just stop doing."

Gausman went two scoreless innings in his most recent appearance without giving up a run, making it his first scoreless appearance of the season.

"It was good," he said. "Obviously, I've given up some home runs in some bad situations, but other than that I feel like I've been pitching well, so to finally have the results to go with it was definitely nice."

Gausman indicated he's stretched out enough to transition to starter when needed.

"I think I still probably could," he said. "I would probably need one or two bullpens, and then maybe one extended start. But physically it's really not that big of a difference just because I started the whole spring and I've done it most of my career."

Gausman has posted a 6.75 ERA and 6:5 K:BB ratio in eight innings out of the bullpen.


O's P Ubaldo Jimenez ejected Friday for hitting BoSox's Pablo Sandoval


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/17/2015) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez was ejected from Friday's start in the fourth inning after hitting Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval with a pitch.

Jimenez did not allow a run in 3 2/3 innings, striking out two and walking three.

Kevin Gausman was called upon from the bullpen to relieve Jimenez.

"It was my first one. I was shocked," Jimenez said. '"He's a good hitter and I'm trying to go inside."

Jimenez's next scheduled start is Wednesday in Toronto.


Orioles' Gausman OK with bullpen role, throwing curveball again


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman said Thursday he has added a curveball back to his repertoire, according to MASNsports.com. He said it's been three years since he threw a curveball in a game.

"I just think it's a different look," said Gausman, who estimated he threw 15 curveballs in 2 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Rays. "I think it is a little bit tighter spin than my slider. It definitely changes eye levels (for the hitter). Watching Tilly (Chris Tillman) what he does every fifth day. He is a big curveball guy with some high elevated fastballs and he's made a living doing that. One thing I can do is elevate my fastball, so it is one of those pitches that kind of feeds off of that."

While some fans would like to see Gausman in the rotation, he understands why he is in the bullpen for the time being.

"Kind of same thing last year when I thought I might have a chance to make the team and we signed Ubaldo (Jimenez)," he said. "We have six guys for five spots and one is going somewhere.

"I'm still very young and early on in my career where you know I can do different things. I've pitched out of the bullpen enough now to know I can do it successfully and it's not that big of a change for me."


Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman earns first win Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman went 2 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Rays, earning his first relief win of the season in Baltimore's 5-4 win.

Gausman allowed two runs on one hit with four strikeouts and two walks in his appearance. Manager Buck Showalter was most impressed by Gausman working out of a jam when he first came into the game, reports MLB.com.

"I think some of the situations he was in last year, it all plays into it," manager Buck Showalter said of Gausman performing well in a relief role. "He's been exposed to a lot of things like that and it will play well.

"He was capable of throwing 70 pitches tonight, but I want him to take two days [off] and be back for us [on] Friday."

Gausman, who lost out on the fifth spot in Baltimore's starting rotation, was happy to be back on the mound.

"I think last time I pitched was last Tuesday. I definitely had my rest," Gausman said. "I felt good. Also adrenaline, [the] first game out had something to do with it."


Ubaldo Jimenez beats Kevin Gausman for Orioles fifth starter spot


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) Ubaldo Jimenez earned the fifth spot in the Orioles' starting rotation. He'll make his first start of the season against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Bud Norris to start fourth game for O's; fifth starter remains TBD


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Orioles manager Buck Showalter announced Friday starting pitcher Bud Norris will start the home opener April 10 against the Blue Jays, following Chris Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen and Miguel Gonzalez in the rotation.

Unfortunately, Showalter wasn't ready to name a fifth starter between Ubaldo Jimenez and Kevin Gausman. In fact, Showalter said he might not be ready to make that call until after the first or second game of the season.


Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman struggles in start Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman surrendered four runs on seven hits, including one home run in Tuesday's start against the Rays.

Gausman also issued one walk and did not record a strikeout.

"I felt good," he said to MASN.com. "Stuff-wise, I was really good. I left a couple of pitches up. More than any of them, I left a slider up to (Desmond) Jennings for a base hit. Other than that, I felt pretty good. I thought I was hitting a lot of spots."

Gausman is competing with Ubaldo Jimenez for the final spot in Baltimore's starting rotation.

"Obviously, I'm not happy about the line, but I felt like I had good stuff. I commanded my off-speed pretty well. I think they just kind of came out hacking. I didn't really make an adjustment probably until the third inning and I got my ground balls, but just the way we were positioned, a couple of them were pretty tough plays to make. Just one of those days."


Orioles' Kevin Gausman to pitch five innings on Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Although Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman could be in line to start the season in the bullpen, manager Buck Showalter told reporters he'll make another start on Tuesday, per MLB.com. Gausman is tentatively scheduled to pitch five innings against the Rays. He has allowed two runs in four innings this spring.

If a game gets rained out from Friday until his next start, Gausman could be bumped Tuesday in favor of Ubaldo Jimenez, according to the Baltimore Sun.


Orioles will shorten Kevin Gausman up in case he's moved to the 'pen


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters he may shorten Kevin Gausman up in case he's assigned to the bullpen to start the season, per MASN Sports.

"Might bring Gaus back shorter until everything shakes out," Showalter said. "I want him to be ready to do both things."

Gausman allowed a two-run home run to Victor Martinez in the eighth inning of Thursday's 6-4 loss to Detroit in Grapefruit League play. He allowed two runs on two hits and no walks while striking out two in one inning of work. He has allowed two runs in four innings this spring.


Orioles limiting pitcher Kevin Gausman early in spring training


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) The Orioles are taking things slow with relief pitcher Kevin Gausman. He pitched just one scoreless inning on 14 pitches in Wednesday's game, but it's a part of the plan, reports MLB.com.

"Every year is a little bit different," said Gausman. "My first year I wanted to come into camp and show what I had and possibly be an option for later in the year, knowing I wasn't going to make the team. But pitched well. Last year came to camp, felt I had a good chance of making the rotation and then we signed Ubaldo [Jimenez]. So, it’s one of those things. Every spring is going to be different."

Gausman went 7-7 in 2014 with a 3.57 ERA and 88 strikeouts in 113 1/3 innings pitched.

"That's one thing that's different this year is they kind of held me back. [The Orioles] told me don't throw any bullpens before you get to camp. Normally I throw 7 or 8 bullpens before camp."


Orioles' Duquette: Kevin Gausman 'ready to have breakout season'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Kevin Gausman, who will compete for a spot in the rotation this spring, will not be penalized because he has options left on his contract, according to The Baltimore Sun. The Orioles also expect to increase his innings limit.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette has high expectations for Gausman in 2015.

"Gausman is good," Duquette said. "If you look at his peripherals, it looks like he's ready to have a breakout season as a starting pitcher. Low walks, high strikeouts. Keeps the ball in the ballpark. He looks pretty good. We'll see his innings limit has been extended each year. He's right on schedule to have a good year."


Braves seeking more in return for OF Justin Upton


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) The Braves are seeking more for outfielder Justin Upton than they received back from the Cardinals for Jason Heyward. However, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, rival executives believe Atlanta received "too much" in return for Heyward.

The Mariners aren't willing to part with pitcher Taijuan Walker and the Orioles won't give pitcher Kevin Gausman.

Upton is coming off a season in which he hit .270/.342/.491 with 29 home runs and 102 RBI over 566 at-bats. The 27-year-old is entering the final year of his contract and is expected to make $14.5 million in 2015 before becoming a free agent.


Kevin Gausman strikes out five in Game 2 relief appearance


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman played a big role in Friday's 7-6 Game 2 win over the Tigers, giving up just one earned run on three hits and one walk in 3 2/3 innings while striking out five.

Gausman recorded as many outs as starter Wei-Yin Chen, who gave up five runs in the fourth inning to put his team behind before Gausman was called upon to get the final out of the inning. He faced the minimum over the next three innings but ran into trouble in the eighth, surrendering a walk, a single and an RBI double to open the inning, with a runner being thrown out at home on the run-scoring play and Gausman not facing another batter. It's possible he'll be considered for a starting role in the ALCS, which the Orioles are favorites to reach after going up 2-0 in the ALDS. Game 3 comes Sunday in Detroit.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.
