The Dodgers liked righthander Kevin Gausman a lot back in 2010, but he turned down an above-slot offer to go to LSU instead. Picked up again in 2012 by the Orioles, he's looking just as promising now as he was then: a solid pitcher with a big fastball and promising (though inconsistent) breaking stuff who could develop quickly. He's a bit of a high-risk / high-reward player for the Orioles, but when you're trying to compete in the AL East, you have to take a few chances. So far, he's looking like a good gamble.

Through his first six minor league starts, Baltimore prospect Kevin Gausman has racked up 32 strikeouts against a single walk (8K/9, 1.07 WHIP). That's by far the best ratio among qualified minor league starters. Gausman is looking like he could be a big boost to the feisty Orioles as a midseason callup.

Kevin Gausman, who had an outside shot at a rotation job with the Orioles to open the season, will toe the rubber every fifth day in AA Bowie instead. A hot start will have him with the big club by midseason; a so-so one will signal September.
