Kevin Gausman posted by oriolesnews

Born on January 6, 1991, Kevin Gausman plays Major League Baseball for the Baltimore Orioles since 2013. Gausman grew up in Centennial, Colorado where he attended Grandview High School and was a pitcher in the school's team. In 2010, Gausman was selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the sixth round of the MLB draft, but he did not join the team. Instead, he joined Louisiana State University and played for his college baseball team, LSU Tigers. In 2012, he was titled All-American at LSU. Later in July of the same year, Baltimore Orioles picked him as fourth overall in the MLB draft, and he was signed for $4.32 million.

During the start of the 2013 season, Evan Gausman played Bowie Baysox, a double-A, minor league baseball team, which is affiliate of the Orioles. However, by May, Gausman was promoted by Orioles to the major leagues, and he made his MLB debut by playing against the Blue Jays in Toronto. With his pitching, Gausman managed five strikeouts, two walks and four runs, and gave seven hits. Orioles lost to Blue Jays, 12-6, and in June, he was to play the minor league again with Norfolk Tides, which is a farm team of the Orioles. However, Gausman was recalled to play against the Yankees, and he managed his first MLB win. He pitched instead of T.J. McFarland, and did not allow any walks, gave three hits, and struck out four.

In June 2014, Gausman was the starting pitcher, and played a major role in winning against Oakland Athletics. Orioles went seven innings, and Gausman allowed only a single run, one walk, and struck out six. Gausman has a unique pitching style where four pitches are thrown with high velocity. The slider is at around 84 mph, the fastball at about 98 mph, and the change up is thrown at around 88 mph.

ChiSox down in Battimore, 3-0 posted by Richard Kagan

What bothers me about the White Sox or any other Chicago baseball team is that they so easily give away the gains they painfully made days before.  The White Sox swept the Yankees for the first time in 20+ years and then go on the road to play the Orioles.

Buck Showalter has this team playing well, and the Sox are doing their el foldo act.  It's happening now and not in Detriot.  When they are down 3-0 it is easy to chalk it up for a loss, but this game isn't over and the Sox have shown they can come back.  I'd like to see them fight their way back into it and someone hit back to back HR's and seal the deal.  They have the talent to do that.

Yankees look to fill Pettitte’s shoes in rotation posted by David

Following Andy Pettitte’s retirement announcement last week, the New York Yankees are left with a big hole in their starting rotation.  CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes, and A.J. Burnett are the team’s top three starters, while the last two spots are up for grabs.  Ivan Nova and Sergio Mitre are options for Joe Girardi, but their limited experience in The Show may hurt their chances, as the Bronx Bombers tend to go with more established pitchers.  That leaves Freddy García (35) and Bartolo Colón (37), both of whom will try to prove they are not washed-up.

García won 12 games last season for the White Sox, but his 4.64 ERA is more indicative of the type of year he had.  I went to Chicago one weekend and actually saw him give up seven earned runs in just 2.1 innings of work against the Marlins.  The ChiSox eventually lost the game 13-0 in front of their home fans.  García surrendered three home runs in that game and 23 overall in only 157 innings pitched, numbers that are unlikely to improve if he makes half his starts at New Yankee Stadium.

Once a great pitcher, Colón has battled injuries over the last several years and didn’t pitch in the big leagues last season.  Since winning the Cy Young Award in 2005, Colón has accumulated just 14 wins, topping out at six in 2007.

The starting pitching challenges for Girardi don’t end there, as it’s anyone’s guess what kind of season Burnett will have.  In 2009 – his first year in pinstripes – Burnett posted a respectable 4.04 ERA to go with a 13-9 won-loss record.  In 2010, his ERA jumped to 5.26 while his record fell to 10-15.  He also led the majors in hit-batsmen, with 19 – the most batters a Yankee pitcher has hit in the last 100 years.

Trevor Time calls it a day posted by David

Trevor Hoffman, Major League Baseball’s all-time saves leader, announced his retirement this week after an illustrious 18-year big league career.  The seven-time All-Star finishes his career with 601 saves, a 61-75 record, a 2.87 ERA, and 1,133 strikeouts.  In 1089.1 innings pitched – spanning 1035 games – he surrendered exactly 100 home runs.  Hoffman spent the bulk of his career with the Padres, with whom he won four division titles and one National League pennant.


Hoffman was drafted as a position player, but after hitting .249 and .212 in his first two seasons in the low levels of the minors, the Reds turned him into a pitcher.  Hoffman found immediate success on the mound, going on to become a dominant closer for nearly two decades, but Cincinnati lost him to the Marlins in the 1992 Expansion Draft.  After half a season in the majors, he was traded to San Diego in a deal that sent Gary Sheffield to Florida.  Hoffman would spend the next 15 and a half seasons in a Padres uniform.


Hoffman’s best season came in 1998, when he recorded 53 saves (at the time, tied for second in a season), boasted an ERA of just 1.48 and a WHIP of 0.85, and allowed only two home runs.  In 73 innings, Hoffman struck out 86 batters while walking 21.  That same year, he came in second in Cy Young Award voting despite receiving more first-place votes (13) than the winner, Tom Glavine (11).  In an MVP race that saw sluggers Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire finish first and second, Hoffman came in

Edgar Martínez’s case for Cooperstown posted by David

One of the most talented hitters of the nineties did not receive enough votes for induction to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility, but I’m hoping Edgar Martínez does not have to wait too much longer.  I don’t expect him to be elected in 2011 because too many voters don’t think a Designated Hitter is a full-time player.  (Martínez came up as a third baseman, but injuries forced him to become Seattle’s regular DH in 1995.)  In my opinion, if a poor defensive player can make it to Cooperstown based on his offensive contributions, then someone who does not play a defensive position should be able to do the same.

Martínez’s career stats include a .312 batting average, .418 on-base percentage, .515 slugging percentage, 2,247 hits, 309 home runs, and 1,261 RBIs.  His best season came in 1995, when he slugged .628 while leading the AL in batting average (.356), OBP (.479), OPS (1.107), doubles (52), and runs (121).  Despite his monster year, Martínez still finished third in the MVP race.  Fifteen years later, he remains the only designated hitter ever to win a batting title.

Martínez was a seven-time All-Star, won five Silver Slugger Awards, and had one of the biggest clutch hits in postseason history – a two-run double in the bottom of the 11th inning of Game 5 of the 1995 ALDS that sent the Mariners to their first-ever Championship Series.  Seattle had been trailing the Yankees 5-4 and were three outs away from being eliminated from the playoffs; the turn of events sent the Yanks home instead after having blown a 2-0 series lead.  For the series, Martínez had a Ruthian line of .571/.667/1.000 and 10 RBIs – nine of them coming in the last two games.

Shin-Soo Choo: one of a kind posted by David

Shin-Soo Choo likely earned an exemption from South Korea’s two-year military service requirement, as his country won this year’s just-completed Asian Games.  Led by none other than Choo, who hit .571 (8-for-14) with three home runs, six walks, eight runs scored and 11 RBIs during the tournament, South Korea defeated Taiwan, 9-3, in the final game earlier today.

In addition to becoming the first Asian to join the 20-20 club in 2009, Choo is the first player in Indians franchise history (bear in mind the Tribe is more than a century old) to hit .300 with 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases in consecutive seasons.  Joe Carter, who played in Cleveland for six years, accomplished the feat in 1986 and even went 30-30 the next season, but saw his average fall from .302 to .264.  Roberto Alomar almost did it three years in a row (1999-2001 – coincidentally his only seasons with the Indians), but fell one home run short in 2000 – the middle year of the would-be-streak.

Besides his offensive production, Choo also led all American League rightfielders with 14 assists this past season.  Shin-Soo Choo not having to miss two years in the prime of his career is Good for Ball.

And then there were 10

The last 16 postseasons have featured eight teams with a chance to be crowned World Series champions, but 2012 could be the first year with four rounds of playoff ball.  (Game 163 – sometimes called a one-game playoff – counts as part of the regular season, so there have never been more than three rounds of postseason play in the Big Leagues.)  How could this be?  Bud Selig announced this week a proposal to expand the playoffs to 10 teams – three division winners and TWO Wild Card teams in each league.  It is rumored that the extra round – played between the two Wild Card teams – would be either a best-of-three series or a one-game winner-take-all.

Longer series are good for ball posted by David

Postseason sweeps are great if your team comes out victorious, but for the fan who just wants to see a good series because his team is already done for the year, sweeps make October less exciting.  The Phillies and Yankees outplayed their first-round opponents so it was no surprise that the Reds and Twins failed to win a single game, but the other two division series were more fun to watch.  Additionally, the League Championship Series in both the AL and NL will last a minimum of six games, which is how it should be.  A postseason series that features one team in complete control over the other is like a boxing match in which one fighter KO’s the other in the first round, but then fights him again the next night and does it all over again.  A series that goes the distance (or a game shy of it), on the other hand, is good for ball.

How ‘bout that?

How about Cody Ross?  The Giants outfielder hit two home runs against Roy Halladay in Game 1 of the NLCS and added one off Roy Oswalt in Game 2 to provide San Francisco with its only run of the game.  This feat of power against two of the league’s best pitchers comes after Ross hit only three long balls in 33 games after coming over in a trade from the Marlins.  Though closer Brian Wilson has struck out six in 3.1 scoreless innings of work, Ross’s .375/.474/1.063 line as an everyday player makes him the favorite for the series MVP should his team eliminate the two-time defending NL Champs and play in the Fall Classic for the first time since 2002.

Will Chipper hang 'em up? posted by David

Chipper Jones is out for the year with a torn ACL, but let’s hope this isn’t it for the man who has played his entire major league career for manager Bobby Cox.  Chipper has made it known since last season that retirement could be around the corner, but like Baseball Tonight’s Eduardo Perez, I don’t see Chipper calling it quits now that his season has ended unexpectedly.  He wants to go out on his own terms, and these aren’t them.  At 38, his career is nearing the end, but I find it hard to believe that he will be able to say good-bye after watching from the bench as his team battles for the National League crown.

If he’s truly done, Chipper’s numbers speak for themselves: a .306 career batting average and .405 On-Base Percentage, 436 home runs, 147 stolen bases, 2,490 hits, two Silver Sluggers and an MVP award.  The six-time All-Star won a batting title at the age of 36, hitting a staggering .364 to edge Albert Pujols, who hit .357.  He is also tied for the most home runs in a season by a switch-hitter (45 in 1999; Lance Berkman accomplished the feat in 2006).  A little known fact about Chipper is that he and Paul Waner hold the Major League record for most consecutive games with an extra-base hit (14).  Chipper will join Waner in Cooperstown as soon as he is eligible.

How ‘bout that?

How about Jered Weaver?  The 27-year-old righty leads the majors with 182 strikeouts and is having his best season (11-7, 2.87 Earned Run Average) since his rookie year (2006), when he went 11-2 with a 2.56 ERA.  Since the All-Star break, Weaver has been even better, posting a 1.93 ERA, limiting opponents to a .204 batting average, and averaging seven innings per outing over six starts.  With the Rangers playing so well in the AL West, the Angels are unlikely to win the division for the fourth straight year and may even finish under .500 for the first time since 2003, but they have to be pleased with how their ace has pitched this season.

10 more runs than Clay needed. posted by Joe Franciosa, Jr.

I just finished watching Buckholz shut out the Orioles for the third time. Gotta love the "Sox in 2" games when they win.

 So, before we talk about Buckholz, let's begin with Beltre. I'm not really sure if that Home run on one knee is his new signature move or not, but it is aweing to watch. Is he really turning on the ball that hard? Is he just off-balance and ending on one knee is a bad thing? What happens when the one knee swing ends up scraping the wall? Is he going to get himself thrown out at second? We'll have to wait until that happens to know. But, for now, it's the best home-run swing in baseball. Now Beltre, you really need to stop running into the left fielder. Did you learn nothing from Ellsbury? Hurting Hermida isn't as big a deal as Ellsbury, but you're going to hurt yourself on one of these crazy collisions. That would be horrible for this team.

 Now then, on to the real star of the game. Buckholz threw 101 pitches in his complete game 5 hit shut out of the Orioles. After a rough start to the year, he's now 8-3, and leading the Sox rotation in wins. I'm sorry Tim Wakefield, maybe moving you to the bull pen screwed up your rhythm, but ever since you've returned to the rotation in Beckett's place, it's become obvious that Buckholz deserved that spot in the rotation, and if it again becomes a question of Wake or you going to the Bull Pen, it's definitely got to be Wake.

 Now, it was the Orioles, so there's little else to say about this game. The Orioles only have 19 wins, being last in all the Major Leagues. They just fired their manager, and it's going to be a long time until the Orioles are relevant in baseball again.

Jamie Moyer: baseball's new Ageless Wonder posted by David

Julio Franco may be the oldest player in Major League history to hit a home run (he also holds a number of other oldest player records), but Jamie Moyer has established himself as the game’s new Ageless Wonder.  In throwing a two-hitter against the Braves on May 7th, the 47-year-old became the oldest player to throw a complete game shutout.

A perfect Mother’s Day

In case you missed it, Dallas Braden guaranteed his place in the record books earlier this month by throwing the 19th perfect game in Major League history.  A perfect game is always difficult to achieve, but throwing one against the Rays – the best team in baseball – is that much more impressive.  What’s also worth noting is that this was the first Complete Game of Braden’s career.  That said, the most perfect aspect about the achievement was that it occurred on Mother’s Day, with Braden’s grandmother, who raised him after his mother died of skin cancer, in the stands.

How ‘bout that?

How about Andre Ethier?  Leading all three Triple Crown categories (.392 AVG, 11 HR, 38 RBI’s) in the National League as of a week ago, Ethier is the most feared hitter in the Dodger lineup (even more than Manny Ramirez), but will spend at least the next couple weeks on the Disabled List with a broken bone in his pinky finger.  His injury is bad news for the Dodgers.

How about Ty Wigginton?  After hitting 11 home runs all of last season, Wigginton is tied for second in the majors with 12 homers and still has a week and a half left to play in the month of May!  The Oriole infielder slugged just .400 in 2009 but boasts a .617 slugging percentage through the first eight weeks of 2010.

Trumbo hits 23rd homer, has 4 RBIs as Orioles beat Pads 12-6 (The Associated Press)

Mark Trumbo's magnificent two-run home run into the second deck in left field was the 55th of the month for the Baltimore Orioles, tying the big league record for long balls in June. ''Some guys are aware of it, some aren't,'' Trumbo said after the Orioles routed the San Diego Padres for the second straight game, 12-6 on Wednesday. Trumbo hit his major league-leading 23rd homer and drove in four runs for the AL East-leading Orioles, who won their seventh straight game. [read full article]

Rays-Orioles preview (The Associated Press)

BALTIMORE-- The return of Manny Machado helps the Baltimore Orioles in several ways and one should be easy to see during Saturday's split doubleheader with the Tampa Bay Rays, who will be trying to snap an eight-game losing streak. Since Machado was serving a four-game suspension, the Orioles were not able to replace him on their roster. Machado returned to the Orioles (42-30) in Friday's 6-3 victory over Tampa Bay (31-40), and Showalter said he's glad to be playing with a full team once more. [read full article]

Weekly Rotation: David Ortiz and the five best farewell seasons (Big League Stew)

Though David Ortiz regrets disclosing that 2016 will be his final year in the major leagues, fans should be thankful he gave us ample time to appreciate his greatness. Big Papi is treating us to one of the finest farewell seasons by a hitter in MLB history. With 3.2 wins above replacement already accumulated, he’s on pace to set a career high in WAR at 40 years old. That’s absurd, but as this week’s Weekly Rotation will show, it somehow understates how legendary his final campaign could be compared to other “farewell seasons.”Using WAR as the decisive statistic and visualizations from PointAfter , I’ll rank the five best seasons since 1945 by hitters during the final year of their MLB careers. For the record, if the pre-World War II era was included, players who either had untimely deaths or participated in the infamous Black Sox scandal would comprise most of the top five. Ortiz’s 2016 campaign will then be examined in the context of the legendary goodbyes before his own. A heads-up to Red Sox fans: You should make sure to visit Fenway Park this year to catch a glimpse of a franchise icon before he retires. Somehow, he’s playing just as well as he did when he helped break the Curse of the Bambino more than a decade ago. 5. Hank Greenberg (1947), Pittsburgh Pirates Stats: 3.4 WAR, .249/.408/.478 slash line, 25 HR, 74 RBI, 104 BB in 125 games Hank Greenberg: American Renaissance Man | PointAfter A two-time MVP who had his career cut short by injury, military service and a relatively early retirement, the original "Hammerin' Hank" is one of baseball’s most underappreciated figures. Among his numerous accomplishments on the field, Greenberg was the first MLB player to volunteer for service in the Air Force. He was also the first player to return from war in 1945, and he promptly homered during his first game back with the Tigers, later accounting for two of the three total dingers hit in that year’s World Series to bring a championship to Detroit. Before the 1947 season, however, penny-pinching owners sold Greenberg to Pittsburgh. He adapted quickly to his new digs, leading the National League in walks –drawing a free pass in more than 20 percent of his plate appearances –and mashing 25 home runs for the Pirates. Greenberg retired after his age-36 season with plenty of baseball left in him –no player had previously retired directly after hitting 25 homers –to become the Cleveland Indians’farm system director. He’d proceed to build a successful post-playing career in the front office of both the Indians and Chicago White Sox before becoming an investment banker. 4. Barry Bonds (2007), San Francisco Giants Stats: 3.4 WAR, .276/.480/.565 slash line, 28 HR, 66 RBI, 132 BB in 126 games Bonds’victory lap was one for the ages, as the polarizing slugger overtook Hank Aaron on the all-time home run leaderboard, setting a new hallowed benchmark: 762. MLB All-Time Home Run Leaders | PointAfter That Bonds could still muster enough power and bat speed at age 42 to crush 28 home runs is remarkable, but perhaps even more notable is how much pitchers still feared him. Bonds led the Majors in walks, and paced the majors in on-base percentage for the sixth time in seven seasons, with the only exception being his injury-plagued 2005 campaign. Bonds certainly could have provided some value in 2008, but teams were scared away by the omnipresent cloud of performance-enhancing drugs surrounding the newly crowned home run king. After remaining unsigned for more than two full years, Bonds officially retired in December 2009. 3. Will Clark (2000), Baltimore Orioles/St. Louis Cardinals Stats: 4.0 WAR, .319/.418/.546 slash line, 21 HR, 70 RBI, 136 hits in 130 games A vastly underrated lefty who notched three top-five finishes in MVP voting early in his career, Clark functioned as the ideal midseason acquisition for the Cardinals in 2000. After a crumbling Mark McGwire was lost for the season due to a knee injury, St. Louis found itself in the unenviable position of replacing a franchise icon in the middle of a playoff race. Clark was brought in following a resurgence in Baltimore during the first half, and “The Thrill”didn’t disappoint. Clark served up a pinch-hit homer in his first at-bat for the Cards, then homered in his first four starts. He ended up recording a career-high .964 OPS over the course of the regular season before going 10-for-29 with two homers and a 1.062 OPS in eight playoff games. Will Clark Career Batting Triple Slash | PointAfter St. Louisfell to the Mets in the NLCS, and the 36-year-old Clark announced his retirement that November, surprising many in the game. He told the New York Times, “The first part of my life was based on being a baseball player. The second part of my life is going to be based on being a daddy and a husband.”2. Roy Cullenbine (1947), Detroit Tigers Stats: 4.3 WAR, .224/.401/.422 slash line, 24 HR, 78 RBI, 137 BB in 142 games Cullenbine was unfortunate to play in an era when batting average was the predominant offensive statistic of the time and OPS was just a twinkle in some statistician’s eye. He was one of MLB's best all-time walk drawers –his 22 game walk-streak, set during his “farewell season,”is the longest of all time –when walks were considered “lazy”by many of Cullenbine’s contemporaries. The er, underappreciated Joe DiMaggio of walks ranked second in free passes, third in on-base percentage, fourth in home runs and eighth in OPS in the American League during his final go-round in the bigs. Nevertheless, after a year when he set a career high for home runs and a still-standing Tiger record for walks, he was gone from the Majors. Roy Cullenbine Deserved Better | PointAfter It’s kind of crazy someone with those counting stats couldn’t find a roster spot somewhere the following spring. Though Cullenbine’s defense was panned at the time, he only finished fifth in errors among AL first basemen while creating the most assists among the peers at his position. Perhaps he just wasn’t well liked? [ Join a Yahoo Daily Fantasy Baseball contest now ] Today, Cullenbine’s strong on-base and power numbers would make him a valuable commodity. In that era, however, patience was apparently not the most popular of virtues. The Tigers would be the last team Cullenbine, a Detroit native, would play for. He was released by his hometown team the following offseason, and never appeared in a MLB contest again. 1. Jackie Robinson (1956), Brooklyn Dodgers Stats: 4.5 WAR, .275/.382/.412 slash line, 10 HR, 43 RBI, 12 SB in 117 games Though Robinson’s entrance into the Major Leagues was far more significant than his exit, his final season currently stands as the best “farewell tour”by a hitter in baseball history. The legendary athlete was one of the fastest players on the field until the very end, ranking third in defensive WAR (2.0), sixth in stolen bases and 16th in MVP voting. Jackie Robinson WAR by Season | PointAfter However, fans didn’t know of Robinson’s imminent retirement in 1956. Despite Robinson performing his best during his final World Series appearance (.796 OPS, 10 total bases), the Dodgers lost the 1956 title to the Yankees for the fifth time in Robinson’s 10-year MLB career. Brooklyn tried to trade the 37-year-old to the New York Giants during the offseason, but Robinson elected to retire due to an increasingly bothersome list of ailments that would eventually be diagnosed as diabetes. The disease would steal most of Robinson’s sight by middle age and likely contributed to his fatal heart attack in 1972, just more than 25 years after the iconic No. 42 broke the color barrier and changed baseball forever. Note: Roberto Clemente, who died in a plane crash after his age-37 season in 1972, was not included in this ranking due to the circumstances surrounding his final season. If he was included, he would rank No. 1 with 4.8 WAR. David Ortiz (2016), Boston Red Sox Stats: 3.2 WAR, .339/.421/.699 slash line, 18 HR, 59 RBI in 64 games According to some personal Baseball Reference research, Ortiz would smash the record for WAR by a hitter in his final season during the post-World War II era if he maintains his current pace. Even if we include batters from before 1945, the only hitter who’s previously equaled Ortiz’s current WAR path (pun intended) is Shoeless Joe Jackson, who totaled 7.6 WAR in 1920 at age 32 before being bannedfrom the game for his role in the Black Sox betting scandal. David Ortiz Wins Above Replacement (WAR) by Season | PointAfter All baseball fans should be wishing Ortiz’s ailing feet good health, because his revival is a rare relic of a sport that has seen the aging curve pessimistically bend for players of Ortiz’s age over the course of Big Papi’s career. The sport is more exciting when iconic veterans such as himself call back days of yore. Nearly halfway through this season, however, Ortiz isn’t just equaling his old self –he’s bettering it.

Wilson 3-hitter, Jones homer helps Orioles beat Red Sox 5-1 (The Associated Press)

It's certainly possible that the Baltimore Orioles could find themselves playing in some meaningful games against the Boston Red Sox later this season. Tyler Wilson allowed three hits over eight innings, Adam Jones added a home run and three RBIs, and the Orioles beat the Red Sox 5-1 on Thursday night to earn their second series win this season over their American League East rivals. ''It's a great team win to come in here to Fenway and take two of three away from these guys and an offense like that,'' Wilson said. [read full article]
