Giants' Kevin Gausman: Fans career-high 12 Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman allowed one run on five hits while striking out a career-high 12 hitters over eight innings in a 3-2 extra-innings loss to the Pirates on Friday. He did not factor into the decision.

Gausman was in complete control for a majority of the game against Pittsburgh as he threw 70 of his 96 pitches for strikes and had his off-speed stuff working with 10 of his 12 strikeouts coming via the splitter. Manager Gabe Kapler tested his luck by sending Gausman back out to begin the ninth and it did not work out well after he surrendered back-to-back singles and was replaced by Jake McGee, who allowed one of the inherited runners to score. The 30-year-old Gausman clearly pitched well enough to earn the win but the Giants managed just four hits on the night. Gausman's 1.84 ERA is tied for fifth-best among qualified pitchers in baseball and his 0.84 WHIP is good for seventh. He'll look to avoid the loss column in a meeting against the Reds next week.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Posts quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (3-0) gave up one run on three hits and a walk while fanning seven across six innings in Saturday's win over the Padres. He earned the win.

Gausman improved to 3-0 while recording his fifth quality start of the season, and he has given up more than one earned run just once in the current campaign. The right-hander now owns a 1.97 ERA with a 47:12 K:BB across 45.2 innings in 2021, and he will try to keep this sizzling run going in his next start. He's expected to take the ball next week against the Pirates on the road.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman was activated off the COVID-19 injured list as expected ahead of his scheduled Saturday start against San Diego.

Gausman landed on the injured list Tuesday while recovering from the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine, but the timing meant he didn't have to miss a single start. He's had a strong start to the season, giving up one or fewer runs in five of his first six starts, including six innings of one-run ball against these same Padres in his last outing.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: On track to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants manager Gabe Kapler said Gausman (COVID-19 injured list) is in line to start Saturday's game against the Padres, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

Gausman was moved to the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday, but his placement on the IL was merely a result of the side effects he experienced from a vaccine shot rather than a positive test or because of close contact with an infected person. Assuming Gausman feels better within the next day or two, he shouldn't face any restrictions Saturday while starting on five days' rest.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Recovering from vaccine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman's absence is expected to be a brief one, as he's been placed on the COVID-19 injured list merely due to the side effects of the coronavirus vaccine, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Gausman's turn in the rotation is due up Saturday, by which point the side effects will likely have subsided. The Giants have yet to officially confirm when he'll return to the roster, however.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Out for undisclosed reasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman landed on the injured list for undisclosed reasons Tuesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The Giants didn't even specify which injured list Gausman was placed on, which typically means he's been placed on the COVID-19 injured list. Per Crowley, the expectation is that Gausman may be on the injured list simply while recovering from the COVID-19 vaccine shot, though that's yet to be officially confirmed. If that's all that's going on with the righty, he should be able to take his next turn in the rotation, which lines up to come Saturday against the Padres.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Turns in another stellar outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (2-0) allowed one run on six hits and a walk while striking out six over six innings to earn the win over the Padres on Sunday. He also singled and reached via a fielding error while scoring two runs.

Gausman's lone blemish on the day was allowing a first-inning solo home run to Fernando Tatis. The 30-year-old Gausman was excellent otherwise as it was his fifth start this season allowing one run or less. He lowered his ERA to a 2.04 while improving his K:BB to 40:11 over 39.2 innings. He's in line for a rematch against the Padres later in the week.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Strikes out 11 in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman hurled eight innings in a no-decision against Miami on Saturday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out 11.

Gausman was dominant in the start, inducing 21 swinging strikes and allowing only a pair of hits. His lone mistake resulted in a Jon Berti home run in the seventh inning, but a strong outing by counterpart Pablo Lopez helped keep Gausman from earning his second win. Nonetheless, the right-hander has enjoyed a strong beginning of the campaign, going at least six innings in all five of his starts and registering a 2.14 ERA along with a 34:10 K:BB across 33.2 frames. He'll head to San Diego to face the Padres in his next scheduled start Friday.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Blanks Phillies for first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (1-0) picked up the win Monday in a 2-0 victory over the Phillies, allowing six hits and four walks over six scoreless innings while striking out five.

The right-hander created plenty of traffic on the basepaths but buckled down when it counted, stranding runners in scoring position in every inning except the second. Gausman tossed 108 pitches (68 strikes) en route to his third quality start of the season, and he'll take a 2.45 ERA and 23:9 K:BB through 25.2 innings into his next outing, Saturday at home against the Marlins.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Rebounds after shaky first inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman allowed five runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven over six innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Tuesday.

Gausman got off to a poor start Tuesday, allowing a pair of two-run homers in the first inning off the bats of Joey Votto and Mike Moustakas. Eventually, the right-hander buckled down. Gausman retired the final 13 batters he faced and now has a 3.20 ERA and 18:5 K:BB in 19.2 innings this season. Assuming the Giants don't skip anyone this weekend, Gausman will get two starts next week (at Philadelphia, vs. Miami).

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Stifles Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman allowed one earned run on four hits and one walk while striking out five across seven innings Wednesday against the Padres. He did not factor in the decision.

Gausman kept the deep Padres lineup in check, limiting them to only four singles in his seven frames. It was his second tremendous start in as many outings this season, as he's combined to allow two earned runs with a 11:3 K:BB across 13.2 frames. Though he has yet to to earn a win, Gausman has been able to pitch deep into games, which should give him plenty of opportunities for victories as the season progresses. He's currently lined up to make this next start Tuesday at home against Cincinnati.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Excellent in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman gave up one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out six in 6.2 innings Thursday against the Mariners. He did not factor in the decision.

The Mariners ended up tagging the Giants bullpen for seven earned runs, so Gausman was unable to get the win, despite a strong first start of 2021. He only threw 90 pitches (62 strikes) and almost made it through seven innings. Gausman lines up to start in San Diego on Wednesday.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Tabbed for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman will start Opening Day against the Mariners on April 1, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 30-year-old accepted San Francisco's one-year, $18.9 million qualifying offer this offseason after posting a 3.62 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 79:16 K:BB over 59.1 innings last year, and he'll be the first pitcher to take the mound for the Giants in 2021. It's another contract year for Gausman, and replicating his success from 2020 would provide a significant boost to his stock entering free agency.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman will start Monday's spring game against the White Sox, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Gausman will make his third start of spring training Monday after he allowed three runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk while striking out four over 4.1 innings during his first two outings. The right-hander has been more effective than Johnny Cueto during his Cactus League appearances, but Cueto will start a simulated game for the Giants on Monday. Manager Gabe Kapler hasn't indicated whether Gausman or Cueto will serve as the Opening Day starter in 2021, but Kapler said Sunday that he could reach a decision in the next few days.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Accepts qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman accepted a one-year, $18.9 million qualifying offer from the Giants on Wednesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Gausman was rumored to have several multi-year contract offers on the table, but he'll instead elect to take a short-term deal that will pay him more than double his salary from 2020. The right-hander was dominant during his first year with the Giants during the abbreviated 2020 season, recording a 3.62 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 79:16 K:BB over 59.2 innings.

Kevin Gausman: Giants extend qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants extended Gausman the $18.9 million qualifying offer for 2021 on Sunday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

The right-hander joined San Francisco on a one-year, $9 million deal in January and pitched well enough during the shortened season to earn the qualifying offer. Gausman posted a 3.62 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 79:16 K:BB over 59.2 innings, and the Giants are still hoping to reach an agreement on a long-term deal. If no deal is reached and he declines the one-year, $18.9 offer, the 29-year-old will carry draft-pick compensation if he signs elsewhere in free agency.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Strong effort ends in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman fanned nine while allowing two runs on eight hits and a walk across six innings during Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Rockies. He did not factor in the decision.

Gausman was effective in six innings of work, punching out nine Rockies before exiting with a 3-2 lead. Unfortunately for the right-hander, Sam Coonrod quickly gave up a pair of runs after replacing him, forcing Gausman to settle for a no-decision. It marked the second straight outing in which Gausman was sharp but came away winless. The 29-year-old has fanned 24 while allowing just four runs across his last 18 innings and is a strong candidate to start a game next week should the Giants sneak into the playoffs.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Dealt tough loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (3-3) took the loss Saturday against the A's after giving up one run on one hit with six strikeouts and three walks over six innings.

Oakland scratched off a run during the fourth inning, but the right-hander otherwise kept the A's in check and showed no sign of the elbow issues that resulted in him being scratched from his previous start. Gausman has a 3.76 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 68:15 K:BB through 52.2 innings and lines up to make his final start of the regular season Thursday versus Colorado.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Set to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (elbow) will start Saturday's game against the Athletics, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Gausman (elbow) was scratched from his last start due to a right elbow issue, but he's since been cleared to take the mound for Saturday's matchup. He owns a 4.05 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with a 62:12 K:BB over 46.2 frames this season.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: May start this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (elbow) had an MRI come back clean and could start against the Athletics this weekend, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 29-year-old was scratched from his previous start with right elbow tightness, but the MRI cleared him of any structural issues. Gausman figures to have a throwing session within the next couple days to determine if he's cleared to rejoin the rotation this weekend in Oakland.
