Gausman will make two starts at Triple-A Norfolk over the All-Star break before returning to the Orioles' rotation, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

The Orioles sent Gausman down to Triple-A after his rough outing Tuesday, but now it seems that he has a chance to stick in the big league rotation for the second half. By making two starts at Triple-A during the break, the Orioles plan to keep Gausman in a regular rhythm so that he'll be ready to return when the second half resumes.

Gausman was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk following Tuesday's start. He allowed eight runs (seven earned) on seven hits and one walk with four strikeouts over 3.2 innings against the Twins.

While the move may seem like punishment for Gausman's struggles Tuesday, it seems like the Orioles' are just strategically freeing up a roster spot in between his next start for the O's. By optioning him Tuesday night, the team starts his 10-day minor league clock Wednesday so that he can make one start for Norfolk and will be able to be recalled to start for Baltimore next Saturday.

Gausman will start Tuesday at Minnesota, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Gausman will have first dibs on the rotation spot vacated by new bullpen arm Bud Norris. In two nods this season, Gausman has allowed two runs on eight hits and three walks to go with eight strikeouts in 11.1 innings.

Gausman will remain with the Orioles for their road trip that begins Friday against the White Sox, Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Gausman went 6.1 scoreless innings with seven strikeouts and two walks in Thursday's start against the Rangers. The Orioles' road trip spans into next week, when the team travels to Minnesota. Manager Buck Showalter told reporters that he'll "see what happens" with Gausman, so it's still unclear at this point whether he'll get another turn in the rotation during the road trip.

Gausman has been recalled from Triple-A Norfolk.

As expected, Gausman will come up to start Thursday's contest against the Rangers. He's worked mostly out of the bullpen this season, posting a 4.24 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and 14:6 K:BB in 17.0 cumulative innings. The Orioles optioned Tyler Wilson to Norfolk to clear a roster spot.

Gausman is expected to be recalled by the Orioles to start Thursday's game against the Rangers, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Gausman was bypassed for a start during either of Sunday's doubleheader games against the Indians, with manager Buck Showalter opting to give the ball to Ubaldo Jimenez and Chris Tillman for those contests. However, it doesn't appear Gausman will have to wait long before getting an opportunity with the big club, as he's expected to pitch an abbreviated outing Sunday with Norfolk in preparation for Thursday's turn with Baltimore. The hard-throwing Gausman possesses as much potential as any pitcher on the Orioles' staff, but had yet to break through while working mostly in a relief role earlier this season. He's posted a 4.24 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 14:6 K:BB ratio over 17 innings with the O's.

Gausman will not be recalled from Triple-A to start the second game of Sunday's double-header, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Gausman was initially expected to be the 26th man for the Orioles on Sunday for their double-header and was even scratched from his scheduled start Friday at Triple-A. However, the Orioles will keep Gausman at Triple-A for the time being and start Ubaldo Jimenez and Chris Tillman in Sunday's double header.

Gausman will start one game of Sunday's double-header against Cleveland, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

Gausman was scratched from his start Friday at Triple-A Norfolk in anticipation that Saturday's game would be postponed, leading to a double-header on Sunday. He'll be the 26th man on the roster Sunday but will be sent back down following his start.

Gausman was scratched from his start at Triple-A Norfolk on Friday in the event the Orioles need a spot starter for a potential double-header on Sunday, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

The forecast calls for persistent rain and thunderstorms all day Saturday in Baltimore, which may very well result in a rainout. If the Orioles and Indians play a double-header on Sunday, Gausman will be rested and ready in the event he gets called up for a spot start.

Gausman was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.

Gausman seemingly pitched well enough to remain in the rotation Sunday, tossing five innings of two-run ball. That won't be the case, however, as the Orioles will use his roster spot to recall right-handed reliever Oliver Drake. Should the need for another spot start arrive, Gausman would be one of the first names called.
