Gausman (11-12) took the tough-luck loss Sunday in Tampa Bay despite allowing only one run on six hits while striking out one without a walk over seven innings.

EDGE Analysis

Gausman was dominant in this one, with the only damage against him coming on a solo homer off the bat of Curt Casali. Unfortunately for Gausman, Baltimore's offense missed the memo that the offseason doesn't start until Monday and managed just three hits without a run to stick him with a second consecutive loss. The 26-year-old righty struggled with consistency en route to a 4.68 ERA in 34 starts, but showed flashes of brilliance with seven starts of at least seven innings and one or fewer runs allowed in his last 17 appearances.

Gausman is expected to start Sunday against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gausman wasn't expected to start again this season, but with Jeremy Hellickson unavailable due to a back issue, the Orioles will likely hand the ball to Gausman for one final outing. He's coming off a loss to the Pirates in which he allowed six runs in just four innings of work, but prior to that he compiled a 2.25 ERA in four September starts. The 26-year-old, who owns a 4.81 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 179.2 innings this season, will get one more opportunity to end his season on a positive note.

Gausman (11-11) allowed six runs on five hits and two walks across four innings to earn the loss Tuesday against the Pirates. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

Gausman allowed two runs on three hits in the first inning, but the big hit came in the form of a grand slam by Andrew McCutchen in the fourth. He worked up to 83 pitches as he finished the inning but wasn't brought back out for the fourth. Gausman delivered perhaps his best start of the year last time out, but this collapse is somewhat representative of his season, for which his ERA sits at a disappointing 4.81. He isn't scheduled to start again at the moment and will look to get back to the drawing board ahead of the 2018 campaign.

Gausman tossed eight scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Tuesday, allowing three hits with two walks and seven strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Gausman was superb in this one, receiving 24 called strikes as he kept the Boston lineup off balance. He induced 10 groundball outs while reaching seven strikeouts for just the second time in the last eight starts. Unfortunately, Drew Pomeranz and the Red Sox bullpen kept pace with Gausman, who wasn't in line to earn a win despite his terrific performance. He has been terrific in four of his last five starts and will look to continue his recent success Sunday against the Rays.

Gausman (11-10) pitched seven quality innings, allowing one earned run on six hits and one walk while striking out six Blue Jays en route to Wednesday's win.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander rebounded nicely from his last outing, a disaster against the Yankees in which he lasted just three innings. Gausman continues to offer a roller coaster of results, but he's now managed three quality starts in his last four games. He'll take a 4.83 ERA and 1.56 WHIP into his next start Monday against a dangerous Red Sox lineup.

Gausman (10-10) allowed five runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four batters through just three innings during Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Gausman's game-to-game inconsistency has been maddening, and the 26-year-old righty is now up to a 4.99 ERA and 1.59 WHIP for the campaign. His 8.5 K/9 is an admirable mark, and Gausman had pitched 13.2 scoreless innings over his previous two outings, so the upside is there. Still, it's probably best to just accept him as a high-risk, high-reward start moving forward. Gausman projects to make his next start against Toronto at the Rogers Centre.

Gausman has been confirmed as Thursday's starter in the make-up game against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is expected, as neither team had a game scheduled Thursday, so the rotations did not require tinkering. Gausman will face Sonny Gray on an extra day of rest. He has a 3.04 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 85 strikeouts and seven wins over his last 13 starts (77 innings).

Gausman's scheduled start Wednesday against the Yankees was postponed, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will presumably take the ball Thursday in the make up game against Sonny Gray, as neither team was slated to play that day. Make sure he is out of daily lineups.

Gausman gave up five hits and a walk while striking out eight over six scoreless innings Friday but didn't factor into the decision in an extra-inning win over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The game's lone run didn't cross the plate until the 13th inning, as Joe Biagini matched Gausman goose egg for goose egg before the two right-handers turned things over to their bullpens. The 26-year-old continues his dominance over Toronto -- in five starts against his division rivals this season, he's got a 1.57 ERA and 24:10 K:BB in 28.2 innings -- and his current 4.79 ERA is the lowest it's been since mid-April. He'll look to continue his second-half surge in a tough matchup next Friday in Cleveland.

Gausman (10-9) allowed four hits and three walks through seven scoreless innings to earn the win Saturday against the Red Sox. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

Gausman got back on track after a rough last time out, and he's now tossed six quality starts in his last eight outings to lower his ERA below 5.00 for the first time since April 13. The 26-year-old is enjoying the best stretch of his season, compiling five wins to go along with a 2.26 ERA and 52:19 K:BB over his last 45.2 innings. He'll look to keep things rolling in his next scheduled start, which comes against the Blue Jays on Friday.
