Gausman probably won't crack the Opening Day rotation, despite a strong spring, the Orioles' official site reports. One reason he may have to start the season in the minors is because players who are out of options often are kept on the roster even though they may not have earned a spot.

We'd like to think at some point [Gausman is] going to be one of those, it's just whether or not now is the time."
