Top Kevin Gausman News

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Efficient in quality start

    Gausman did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing zero runs on six hits and zero walks over six innings in a 3-2 win over the Twins. He struck out five.

    The 31-year-old righty was sharp Sunday, getting through six innings on just 84 pitches en route to the quality start. Gausman was around the strike zone all night as he did not walk a single batter, which has been key to his success all season -- he has walked more than three batters just once. Gausman will look to keep up the momentum in his next scheduled start against the Guardians.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Shines in victory

    Gausman (8-8) earned the win Tuesday in Tampa Bay, striking out 10 in eight scoreless innings while allowing a hit, a walk and a hit batsman.

    Gausman held Tampa Bay hitless through the first five innings, retiring 14 in a row at one point. The lone single he allowed was quickly erased on a double-play groundball. After giving up eight runs in his last 9.2 innings, Tuesday's start was arguably his best outing as a Blue Jay. He continues to dominate on the road and has a 2.02 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 69:10 K:BB in 58 innings outside of Canada.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Tagged for five runs

    Gausman (7-8) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk with six strikeouts in 4.2 innings, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Cardinals.

    Gausman had little trouble with the Cardinals the first time through the order, but he struggled the second time around and was ultimately chased with two on in the fifth inning. Trevor Richards then allowed a three-run home run to Albert Pujols, which put two more runs on Gausman's ledger in his fourth start of less than five innings this year. The right-hander has only given up five earned runs twice in 19 starts, and he has a 3.30 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 122:19 K:BB in 103.2 innings overall. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, tentatively scheduled as a road matchup with the Rays next week.

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

    Gausman (7-7) allowed three runs on seven hits over five innings Friday, striking out 10 and earning a win over the Red Sox.

    Gausman fired three shutout frames before coughing up two home runs in the fourth, including a two-run shot by Jackie Bradley. It was the first time all year he'd allowed more than one home run in an outing and he's now served up five through 18 starts. Since an ugly, 2.1-inning start against Baltimore on June 16, Gausman has posted a 2.42 ERA and a 36:7 K:BB through five outings. The 31-year-old will carry a 3.00 ERA into his projected home start against Detroit next week.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Fans six in return

    Gausman (6-7) took the loss Thursday against Kansas City, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six in six innings.

    Both runs against Gausman came in the fifth inning when he allowed a run-scoring single and a solo homer. Otherwise, he was effective in his return to the mound after missing one start due to an ankle injury. The fifth-inning homer by Bobby Witt was just the third homer Gausman has allowed in 94 innings this season. He'll enter the All-Star break with an excellent 2.87 ERA and 106:18 K:BB through 17 starts.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Declares self ready for Thursday

    Gausman (ankle) confirmed that he's in line to start Thursday's game against the Royals in Toronto, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports. "I'm ready to go," Gausman said.

    Gausman hasn't pitched since exiting his July 2 start against the Rays with a bruised right ankle and has had his return date pushed back a few times after the injury lingered longer than anticipated, but he'll avoid a trip to the injured list and make one more turn before the All-Star break. The 31-year-old came out of Tuesday's bullpen session feeling fine and seems unlikely to face any major restrictions in his return to the Toronto rotation. He's supplied a 2.86 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over 88 innings through his first 16 starts with the Blue Jays.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: May be ready to pitch Thursday

    Gausman (ankle) threw a bullpen session Tuesday and could be an option to start Thursday's home game against the Royals, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

    Gausman hasn't pitched since exiting his July 2 start against the Rays after suffering a bruised right ankle when he was struck by a comebacker, but the Blue Jays continue to delay any potential move to the injured list. The team is seemingly hopeful that he'll be ready to return to the rotation for the final series before the All-Star break, but a decision on his status might not be made until the Blue Jays get a chance to re-evaluate him Wednesday. If Gausman isn't ready to pitch against Kansas City, rookie Max Castillo would likely receive another turn through Toronto's rotation.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Won't pitch Tuesday

    Gausman (ankle) won't be available to start Tuesday's game against the Phillies, as the Blue Jays have announced Jose Berrios as their starter for the series opener, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    After Gausman completed a bullpen session Friday, he was viewed as an option to start Sunday's series finale in Seattle, but the Blue Jays determined he wasn't ready to go for that contest, with Max Castillo getting the starting nod in his stead. Even after a team off day Monday, Gausman apparently hasn't completely moved past the right ankle injury, so the Blue Jays will push back his return at least one more day. The Blue Jays still appear to be leaving the door open for Gausman to start Wednesday against the Phillies, but he'll miss out on a two-start week with Berrios taking the hill Tuesday.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Won't start Sunday

    Gausman (ankle) will not start Sunday's game at Seattle, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.

    Gausman threw a bullpen session Friday but isn't feeling well enough to return to the mound. The team is hoping he'll be able to start Tuesday against the Phillies, though that is not yet confirmed. Max Castillo is an option to start Sunday's game against the Mariners, but manager Charlie Montoyo has announced that it will be a bullpen game.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Throws bullpen Friday

    Gausman (ankle) threw a bullpen session Friday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Gausman threw from flat ground Thursday, and Friday's session marked the first time he worked off a mound since sustaining his ankle injury last weekend. Manager Charlie Montoyo didn't rule the right-hander out for Sunday's start against Seattle.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Status still uncertain

    Gausman (ankle) threw on flat ground Thursday and is scheduled for a bullpen session Friday to determine when he will make his next start, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Gausman underwent a follow-up MRI on Thursday, which confirmed that he had a bone bruise in his ankle rather than a fracture. While that's good news, his status for a potential start Sunday at Seattle is uncertain. If he is unable to take the mound Sunday, Max Castillo is the likeliest candidate to start, with Gausman then tentatively slotting into Tuesday's matchup against the Phillies.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Won't pitch Thursday, may go Sunday

    Gausman (ankle) is unlikely to be ready to start Thursday's series opener with the Mariners, though he hasn't been ruled out from pitching Sunday's series finale in Seattle, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Gausman's inability to throw a bullpen session Tuesday likely closed the door on him starting Thursday, but he hasn't been shut down entirely, as he's expected to play catch Wednesday. The Blue Jays will evaluate Gausman during the workout before potentially allowing him to throw off a mound Thursday or Friday, which would keep him in the mix to start Sunday, according to Davidi. Casey Lawrence was called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, and if he's not needed in relief in the Blue Jays' series finale in Oakland, he would likely be the top candidate to fill in for Gausman on Thursday, per Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Unable to throw bullpen Tuesday

    Gausman (ankle) played catch Tuesday instead of throwing his usual between-starts bullpen session, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The right-hander lines up for his next turn through the rotation Thursday in Seattle, but it appears the ankle injury he suffered during Saturday's outing may affect his availability for this week. Gausman has yet to be ruled out for Thursday's start, but he's likely trending in the wrong direction. Casey Lawrence could be called up to pitch should Gausman be unavailable.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Still feeling soreness

    Gausman is still having trouble pushing off his injured right ankle, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.

    Gausman is still dinged up after being struck by a line drive Saturday, and it's not yet known if he will be ready to make his next scheduled start. He is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, and it seems likely another update on his status will come after that.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: X-rays negative

    Gausman left the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays with a right ankle contusion, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    X-rays were negative, so Blue Jays fans and fantasy managers can breathe a sigh of relief. Gausman went down and stayed down for several minutes after taking a comebacker off his ankle in the second inning of Saturday's matinee. It's still possible he could miss a start or end up on the injured list, but it does not sound like Gausman is in line for an extended absence.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Exits with injury

    Gausman exited the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays after being hit in the ankle by a comebacker in the top of the second inning, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Gausman allowed four hits and a walk while striking out three in two scoreless innings to begin Saturday's matinee, but he was hit by a comebacker in the top of the second inning. He remained down for several minutes but was ultimately able to walk off the field under his own power. The right-hander will presumably undergo further testing before the Blue Jays determine whether he'll need to miss additional time.
