Photo: Adam Jones hooks up Kevin Gausman with donuts
Adam Jones has given pitching prospect Kevin Gausman a locker full of Hostess powdered donuts, so Gausman can continue his ritual of eating three before every inning he pitches.
Back in November, we passed along the story of Orioles' pitching prospect Kevin Gausman's heartbreak over the elimination of Hostess. That's because Gausman has a ritual to eat three Hostess powdered donuts in between every inning he pitches.
Fret no longer, Mr. Gausman, because All-Star center fielder Adam Jones has taken care of it. Gausman arrived Sunday morning in the Orioles' clubhouse to see his locker filled with Hostess powdered donuts -- enough to last him years. Here's the photo evidence, thanks to fellow hurler Zach Britton (via BaltimoreSun.com).

Gausman, a 22-year-old LSU product, had a 3.60 ERA with 13 strikeouts and only one walk in 15 innings last season in High-A and Low-A combined.
