Gausman (0-2) struck out seven, but allowed four runs on five hits and a walk over five innings Thursday in a 4-2 loss to the Astros.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gausman's improved control this year has been an asset, but he was around the plate a little too much in this one, serving up three homers that accounted for all four runs. That said, his 37:9 K:BB in 41.2 innings remains quite impressive, so despite his lack of wins, Gausman is showing good signs that he's finally arriving as a legitimate mid-rotation starter. He'll make his next start Tuesday against the division-rival Red Sox.

Gausman allowed just one run with six strikeouts and just one walk across 6.2 innings Saturday at the Angels.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Although the O's ultimately won the game 3-1, they waited until the ninth inning to score, eliminating Gausman's chances of securing his first win of the season. Despite his 0-1 record, he has pitched extremely well since joining the rotation, as his 2.70 ERA will reflect, and will look to earn that elusive first victory Friday at the Indians.

Gausman (0-1) came away with a no-decision Sunday, allowing four runs on 10 hits and two walks over five innings while striking out only one in a 6-5 loss to the Tigers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He was actually in line for his first win of the season before Darren O'Day gave up back-to-back solo shots to J.D. Martinez and Miguel Cabrera in the eighth inning. Gausman now has a 3.00 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 24:7 K:BB through 30 innings and five starts, and will get another shot at win No. 1 on the road against the Angels on Saturday.

Gausman threw a quality start, allowing three runs in six innings, with nine strikeouts Tuesday against the Twins. He did not figure in the decision.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gausman continued his hot start while laboring his way through 111 pitches, his highest count of the season. He has fallen under some tough luck early and is without a win in his four starts. Gausman had struck out just seven in 14 innings over his last two starts, so getting nine in six innings is a nice change of pace even if the Twins are one of the top five strikeout hitting teams this season.

Gausman's scheduled start for Tuesday against the Twins will remain unchanged despite Monday's game getting postponed due to inclement weather, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Instead of getting pushed back a day, Tyler Wilson, who was the expected starter Monday, will simply move to Wednesday, allowing Gausman's schedule to remain unchanged.

Gausman held the Yankees scoreless over eight innings, allowing three hits with no walks and four strikeouts.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gausman showed pinpoint control, breezing through his eight innings with only 98 pitches and not issuing a single walk. He did not pick up the win as the Orioles could not get a run across the plate until the 10th inning. After missing the first three weeks of the season, Gausman has been very good in each of his three starts. He threw 98 pitches Thursday and should have no restrictions going forward.

Gausman (0-1) allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits while striking out three and walking one over six innings against the White Sox on Saturday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The right-hander has looked good over his first two outings, but he's still looking for his first victory. Gausman threw 67 of his 94 pitches for strikes and left with a two-run lead, but the bullpen wasn't able to hold it. He is set to make his next start Friday against the Yankees.

Gausman (0-1) took the loss despite holding the Rays to one run on three hits and two walks over five innings Monday night.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gausman was nasty but wild in the minors as he rehabbed his injured shoulder -- he struck out 19 but walked five in three starts before receiving the call-up for Monday's start. He had similar issues Monday, as he walked two and put on a batter with a hit-by-pitch, but Gausman induced 11 swinging strikes to notch seven strikeouts and erase any rallies before they could snowball. Gausman's bigger issue in his career has been home runs -- he gave up 17 in just 112.1 innings last year, resulting in a 1.4 HR/9 and 4.25 ERA. When he kept the ball in the yard in 2014 (7 HR in 113.1 innings), Gausman posted a 3.57 ERA in 20 starts.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gausman (shoulder) is slated to start Monday against the Rays, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The right-hander cleared the final hurdle on his road back from a shoulder injury, tossing 5.2 innings for Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday (91 pitches). He turned in a 19:5 K:BB across three levels during his minor league rehab assignment. His second start of the week will come at home against a White Sox team that currently ranks 14th in the AL in scoring (48 runs).
