Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman was scratched from his scheduled minor league start Thursday, April 3.
Fantasy Tip: There's a good chance the O's game Thursday night will be rained out, leading to a doubleheader Friday. Gausman would be called up to start one of those games, which is why Baltimore scratched him from his minor league outing tonight.

Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman touched the mid-90's with his fastball in his Grapefruit League spring appearance Monday, March 3, and he threw 15 of his 24 pitches for strikes.
Fantasy Tip: Gausman is in the mix for a rotation job. If he is able to secure a starting job, he would be a strong AL-only fantasy option, and worth a look in deeper mixed formats, too.

With Baltimore Orioles SP's Ubaldo Jimenez, Chris Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen and Miguel Gonzalez ticketed for the first four rotation spots, the battle for the fifth slot is expected to be fierce. SP's Suk-Min Yoon, Bud Norris and out-of-options Zach Britton will battle for the fifth slot, with SP Kevin Gausman likely headed to the minors.

The Baltimore Orioles agreed on a deal with free-agent SP Ubaldo Jimenez (Indians) Monday, Feb. 17. It's believed that it's a four-year deal worth around $48 million. The deal is pending a physical.
Fantasy Tip: The addition of Jimenez will likely push Zach Britton out of the picture this spring. Kevin Gausman could still be a candidate for the fifth and final spot if the club believes Bud Norris is better suited for a relief role. Jimenez made some positive strides in 2013 with the Tribe, but a move to Camden Yards should leave you hesitant that he'll improve further.

The Baltimore Orioles rotation is definitely not set in stone, according to Brittany Ghiroli, with only SP Chris Tillman considered a lock. SPs Zach Britton, Kevin Gausman and Brian Matusz will likely battle for the fifth starter job, and maybe more, if SPs Wei-Yin Chen, Miguel Gonzalez and Bud Norris falter. SP Steven Johnson is also considered to be in the mix.

The Baltimore Orioles have been intrigued by the idea of turning SP Kevin Gausman into a closer. However, the team still views him as a starter and does not want to deal with the possibility of needing to stretch him out again in the future after having him work in one-inning intervals.
