Gausman (shoulder) has a chance to be ready to start April 10 against the Rays, MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports.

He could start the year on the DL with a backdating of March 25, which would allow him to slot into the O's rotation without the team having to add another starter to the mix, since they have an off day on Apr. 5. Heyman said it will be a close call, so owners should be prepared for Gausman to have to wait a turn or two before joining the rotation.
