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 that players who are out of options often are kept on the roster even though they may not have earned a spot. "It's always that challenge every spring," manager Buck Showalter said. "Your best 25 or your right 25? ... 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."

2014

2013

Widely regarded as the top college pitching prospect in the 2012 draft, Gausman made a brief set of appearances in short-season and High-A before starting a Double-A playoff game. Gausman throws a fastball and a changeup, but he alternated his use of a curveball and slider during his last college season. As a starter he will probably throw both of them going forward, but they need work. Gausman seems likely to start the season in Double-A with a midseason promotion possible. He could even see time in Baltimore at some point in 2013.
