Player Notes
Kevin Gausman yielded four runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Rays.

Advice: If the Orioles were already leaning towards putting Gausman in the pen, then nothing they saw today is going to change their minds. Even if it happens, Gausman still figures to make at least 25 starts and amass some mixed-league value this year. We imagine it's a decision being made more with September and October in mind than anything else.

Kevin Gausman will start Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays.

Advice: Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday that he was considering using Gausman in shorter stints just in case he's needed in relief, but the righty will be stretched out to around five innings Tuesday. While Gausman could still be the favorite for the No. 5 starter spot, it's possible the O's will pull a surprise and give the job to Ubaldo Jimenez.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday that he could shorten Kevin Gausman's appearances in the final two weeks of camp to prepare him to possibly be used as a reliever.

Advice: Gausman threw one inning in Thursday's game and it appears he may continue to be used in short spurts rather than be stretched out more. "Until everything shakes out, I want him to be ready to do both things," Showalter said of Gausman. It's really disappointing news, as this is the first we've heard of the possibility of Gausman potentially not being a part of the rotation. He's out-pitched Ubaldo Jimenez this spring, but it sounds like the latter might beat him out for a rotation spot, anyway. Gausman is a potential breakout fantasy performer if he's given a starting job, so keep close tabs on this one.

Kevin Gausman threw just one inning against the Tigers on Thursday and gave up a two-run homer.

Advice: Gausman came in for the eighth, and he would have pitched the bottom of the ninth as well, except the game was over. We're assuming this was just about rearranging Gausman's schedule a bit. Even though the Orioles have six starters with Ubaldo Jimenez throwing better, Gausman is likely to be a part of the rotation. It'd be really disappointing if they go in a different direction.
