Top Kevin Gausman News

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Blanks Cards for fourth win

    Gausman (4-3) picked up the win in Tuesday's 8-1 victory over the Cardinals, scattering four hits and two walks over six scoreless innings. He struck out eight.

    After uncharacteristically issuing two free passes in the first inning, Gausman knuckled down and pounded the zone, firing 74 of 105 pitches for strikes before exiting, and St. Louis never got a runner past second base. The right-hander has been worth every penny for the Blue Jays so far after signing a $110 million deal in the offseason, providing six quality starts in nine trips to the mound with a 2.25 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 65:5 K:BB through his first 56 innings with Toronto.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Yields two runs in loss

    Gausman (3-3) took the loss against Seattle on Wednesday, pitching five innings and allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three batters.

    Gausman didn't have his usual swing-and-miss stuff against the Mariners in the outing, as he notched a season-low three strikeouts and registered only seven swinging strikes. However, he limited Seattle to two runs and allowed just one extra-base hit -- a fifth-inning homer by Cal Raleigh that was the deciding factor in tagging Gausman with the loss. The right-hander will carry a 2.52 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 57:3 K:BB into his next start, which is slated to come in St. Louis next week.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Fans eight in Friday's loss

    Gausman (3-2) took the loss Friday as the Blue Jays were downed 5-2 by the Rays, giving up four runs (three earned) on five hits and a walk over seven-plus innings. He struck out eight.

    The veteran right-hander headed into the eighth inning with the score tied 2-2, but manager Charlie Montoyo's decision to try and squeeze a few more outs from Gausman backfired when Gausman gave up three straight hits to start the frame. He still wound up recording his fifth straight quality start, and Gausman will take a 2.40 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and stunning 54:2 K:BB through 45 innings into his next outing.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Sharp in third win

    Gausman (3-1) picked up the win in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Guardians, allowing one run on six hits and a walk over 6.1 innings. He struck out five.

    The right-hander fired 69 of 104 pitches for strikes in delivering his fourth straight quality start and winning his third straight decision. About the only blemish on Gausman's line was a fourth-inning free pass to Franmil Reyes that was not only his first of the season, it marked the first time he'd gone to a 3-0 count against a batter. Gausman is proving that his 2021 breakout was no fluke, posting a 2.13 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and career-best 33.6 percent strikeout rate through 38 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Friday's start postponed

    Gausman and the Blue Jays won't play Friday against the Guardians after the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

    Since Friday's game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Saturday, Gausman will start in the matinee while Ross Stripling takes the mound in the second game, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Gausman is off to a hot start in 2022, as he has a 2.27 ERA and 0.98 WHIP with 41 strikeouts and no walks in 31.2 innings over his first five starts.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Strikes out 10 in win

    Gausman (2-1) allowed two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out 10 in seven innings to earn the win over the Astros on Sunday.

    Gausman had allowed two runs (one earned) in 14 innings over his two starts leading up to Sunday's matchup, and he tossed five scoreless innings to begin the game against Houston. Although the right-hander faltered slightly in the sixth and seventh innings, he struck out a season-high 10 batters and earned his second win in his last three outings. Gausman threw 71 of 98 pitches for strikes and has a 2.27 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in 31.2 innings over his first five starts in 2022. He projects to make his next start on the road against Cleveland on Friday.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Fans nine in no-decision

    Gausman didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Red Sox, allowing one unearned run on four hits over six innings. He struck out nine without walking a batter.

    The veteran right-hander dazzled once again, tossing 62 of 88 pitches for strikes while generating 19 swinging strikes, and Gausman exited the game in line for his second win of the season before the Toronto bullpen made things interesting. Incredibly, Gausman hasn't walked a batter or served up a homer through his first four starts as a Blue Jay, amassing a 31:0 K:BB through 24.2 innings to fuel his 2.19 ERA and 1.01 WHIP.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Stellar performance in win

    Gausman (1-1) earned the win after allowing one run on seven hits across eight innings during Thursday's 3-2 win over the Red Sox. He struck out eight and didn't record a walk.

    Gausman scattered six hits through eight scoreless innings, but Trevor Story smacked the first pitch of the ninth inning into right field for a single, which ended Gausman's afternoon. Story came around to score on a Xander Bogaerts double off Jordan Romano, but the Blue Jays closer was able to thwart the comeback and earned the save. Through three appearances with his new squad, Gausman sports a 2.89 ERA across 18.2 innings with a ridiculous 22:0 K:BB. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday in a rematch against the Red Sox in Toronto.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Nine strikeouts in loss

    Gausman (0-1) struck out nine in 5.2 innings, allowing two runs on six hits to take the loss in a 3-0 defeat Thursday against the Yankees.

    Gausman dominated the first seven hitters in the potent Yankees lineup but could not stop Isiah Kiner-Falefa or Jose Trevino, as they accounted for both runs and went a combined 4-for-4 against the righty. The 2021 All-Star has yet to walk a batter or allow a home run in his first two starts for Toronto but has also not yet recorded a win. His next start will likely be next Thursday in Boston.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Yields three runs in Toronto debut

    Gausman tossed five innings against Texas on Saturday, allowing three runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out five. He did not factor in the decision.

    Gausman's final pitching line wasn't earth-shattering, but the veteran right-hander was solid in his first start as a Blue Jay. Of the eight hits he allowed, only one -- a third-inning double off the bat of Marcus Semien -- went for extra bases, and Gausman induced 17 swings-and-misses while throwing 57 of 80 pitches for strikes. The 31-year-old's second start of the season is expected to come in New York against the Yankees next week.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Throws approximately 80 pitches

    Gausman threw in the bullpen following Monday's Grapefruit League start and ultimately threw about 80 pitches between the two sessions, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Gausman allowed two runs on three hits and no walks while striking out three in six innings against the Tigers on Monday, reaching 68 pitches in the start. Monday's appearance was his lone spring start this year, but he appears to be built up nicely and expects to be ready to throw between 95 and 100 pitches during his first regular-season start. Jose Berrios has been named Toronto's Opening Day starter, so Gausman lines up to make his 2022 debut at home against the Rangers on Saturday.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Starting team's second game

    Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Thursday that Gausman is tentatively in line to start the team's second game of the season April 9 against the Rangers in Toronto, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Gausman was bypassed for the Opening Day nod in favor of Jose Berrios, but that's most likely a result of the latter having more seniority in the organization. Among the five projected members of Toronto's Opening Day rotation, Gausman was the top performer in 2021, when he compiled a 2.81 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 227 strikeouts across 192 innings with the Giants. Gausman cashed in on his career-best season by signing a five-year, $110 million deal with Toronto in November, with his big payday indicating the Blue Jays view him as a front-of-the-rotation arm.
