Kevin Gausman, the Norfolk Tides’ ace and Orioles pitching prospect, has been starched tonight’s start due to illness. Gausman was diagnosed with an intercostal muscle strain after experiencing chest pains Thursday.
Gausman was slated to be called up to the Orioles on Friday to help in the bullpen after Thursday’s double header against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Friday was supposed to be Gausman’s day to pitch in the rotation. According to the Norfolk Tides Twitter account, Gausman will be placed on the disabled list, retro 4/30, to make room for infielder Steve Lombardozzi on the roster.
