Gausman appears to be a way off still

Orioles keep churning through starters. Chen headed to DL, so Jurrjens will be MLB-high 10th used this year (confirming @Ken_Rosenthal).

As for other options, Orioles think Gausman still not ready, Arrieta needs more time in AAA to get straightened out.

And for those wondering about a potential Gausman callup... MT @DannyKnoblerCBS As for other options, Orioles think Gausman still not ready

@almelccbs @DannyKnoblerCBS I wonder if that goes out the window if Jurrjens proves to be a liability

@davebarr34 @almelccbs No, the other option at this point was Stinson, not Gausman.

Doesn't really surprise me. They haven't been in a habit to call up their pitching prospects early. Everyone kept thinking Bundy would get the call last year and it took most of the season for that to happen.

Can you blame them after what happened to Matusz, Arietta and Tillman?

Bundy I can see the anticipation, but Gausman has a lot the same profile as the three above. Except he only has 55 MiLB IP and throws like 80% fastballs. AL East, what could go wrong?

This dude will roofie you and dump you passed out on the side of the highway.

Gausman threw 140 innings last year between college and the minors. Almost all of the scouting reports that were compiled before this season talk of him being an 80% fastball guy but I've seen several reports that this season the number is down to the mid 60% range.

One game in particular from mid April was 63% fastball, 20% change & 17% slider. The guy has a plus fastball that sits in the mid 90s and tops out in the 97-100 range. The change is supposedly his best pitch with more that a 10mph difference than the FB and on top of that he has terrific control. Given those numbers and he pitches on one of the best young teams in the league that is desperate for pitching, I'd buy all day!
