Baltimore Orioles SP T.J. McFarland will receive the starting nod over SP Kevin Gausman against the New York Yankees Friday, June 28. It will be McFarland's first major league start. Gausman will be available out of the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: McFarland is the club's Rule 5 selection, so they want to see how he fares as a starter likely to evaluate him. This might just be a spot start, depending on how he fares.

Baltimore Orioles P T.J. McFarland is another option to make the start Thursday, May 23, and manager Buck Showalter seemed to indicate that McFarland was the favorite.
