News: Gausman should be on a limit of around 180 innings in 2015, according to MASN Sports.
Impact: Gausman totaled 158.2 innings in 2014 while pitching between the Orioles and Triple-A. He closed the season by striking out 29 in 31.1 innings in September. As long as Gausman has a good spring, the Orioles are expected to have him in the rotation at the beginning of the season.

News: Gausman should be considered an "impact pitcher" in 2015, former baseball executive Jim Duquette told MASN Sports.
Impact: Normally, such statements are purely speculative, but we can assume Jim Duquette has knowledge of Baltimore's plans given he is the cousin of Orioles' Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations Dan Duquette. The Orioles have options remaining on Gausman, but as long as he can hold his own in spring training, it is probably time to take off the training wheels and give Gausman a shot to hold down a rotation spot.
