Kevin Gausman in Orioles’ bullpen for ALDS vs. Tigers


From beat writer Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun comes word that young right-hander Kevin Gausman will work out of the bullpen for the Orioles in their upcoming ALDS matchup against the Tigers.

Gausman was the fourth overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft and registered a promising 3.57 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 88/38 K/BB ratio across 113 1/3 innings during the regular season, but the O’s will roll with their more-experienced arms versus Detroit.

Chris Tillman is locked in for Game 1 on Thursday at Camden Yards and some combination of Miguel Gonzalez, Wei-Yin Chen, and Bud Norris will line up for the next three tilts.
