Kevin Gausman SP BAL 1 Month

Gausman should be considered an "impact pitcher" in 2015, former baseball executive Jim Duquette told MASN Sports.

Normally, such statements are purely speculative, but we can assume Jim Duquette has knowledge of Baltimore's plans given he is the cousin of Orioles' Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations Dan Duquette. The Orioles have options remaining on Gausman, but as long as he can hold his own in spring training it is probably time to take off the training wheels and give Gausman a shot to hold down a rotation spot.

Gausman might start Game 7 of the ALCS, if necessary, after the fallout from Monday's rainout, MASN Sports reports.

Gausman saw action in Game 1 as Chris Tillman made an early exit. The Orioles have options, including squeezing two more starts in the series out of Tillman. It could come down to whether Gausman is needed in long relief again in the series prior to a potential Game 7.

Gausman will work out of the bullpen in the ALDS, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

The O's have yet to confirm their rotation beyond Chris Tillman, but it will presumably be Wei-Yin Chen, Bud Norris and Miguel Gonzalez in Games 2, 3, and 4, respectively, with Gausman ticketed for relief duty. The 23-year-old Gausman turned in arguably his best month of the season in September, posting a 2.87 ERA with a 29:9 K:BB over 31.1 innings, but he said he expected to work out of the bullpen in the ALDS with the other starters pitching well at the moment.

Gausman allowed two runs and three hits in five innings at Yankee Stadium on Thursday, but did not factor in the decision.

Gausman was solid in a tough venue, but he wasn't too efficient, needing 97 pitches to record 15 outs. The young right-hander finishes the 2014 season with a 7-7 record and respectable 3.57 ERA in 108.1 innings. He's likely to pitch out of the bullpen for Baltimore in the ALDS.

Gausman tossed five innings versus the Red Sox on Friday night, giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits while notching three strikeouts.

Coming off of likely the best performance of his young career, which saw him put together seven scoreless frames versus the Yankees exactly one week ago, Gausman was not quite at the same level Friday night. Nevertheless, the 23-year-old hurler continues to log solid innings for the Orioles this month, as he now sports a 2.73 ERA and 8.2 K/9 across four starts.

Gausman tossed seven scoreless innings in the first game of Friday's day-night doubleheader versus the Yankees, allowing seven hits and two walks while piling up seven strikeouts.

Gausman was brilliant Friday afternoon, putting together possibly the strongest effort of his young MLB career. The 23-year-old hurler has been impressive in recent weeks, posting a 2.97 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 8.4 K/9 across his past six turns in the Orioles' rotation. Gausman is slated to make his next start Wednesday versus the Blue Jays.

Gausman struck out seven and walked four while giving up two runs on five hits over seven innings against the Rays on Saturday.

He did not factor in the decision, however, as the Orioles scratched out the game-tying run in the eighth after his departure before eventually falling. In his next scheduled start, Gausman will face the Yankees as part of a doubleheader at Camden Yards on Friday.

Gausman suffered a loss Monday, going 7.1 innings while allowing five runs�four earned.

The young righty has been a little rocky for the Orioles of late, failing to register a quality start in each of his last three outings. On the whole, Gausman has been productive for Baltimore this season, and will carry a 3.93 ERA into his next start against Tampa Bay.

Gausman was recalled from the Gulf Coast League Orioles on Monday, Rich Dubroff of CSN Baltimore reports.

Gausman was optioned Wednesday to allow the Orioles the option to add an extra player to the roster while Gausman awaited his next turn in the rotation. His turn was due up today, and he was recalled, as expected, to make the start.

Gausman will start Monday against the Twins, reports.

It was widely assumed that Gausman would return from the Gulf Coast League to make his next scheduled start Monday, but manager Buck Showalter confirmed as much prior to Saturday's game. Gausman has posted a 3.84 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 15 starts for the big club this season and it sounds like his spot is relatively safe, with Ubaldo Jimenez sticking in the bullpen for the time being.
