The Baltimore Orioles have recalled right-handed starter Kevin Gausman grom their Double-A Bowie minor league affiliate. The kid has an electric arm and has a good chance at a solid major league future if he keeps his head on straigiht.
To make room for Gausman, the Orioles decided to designate right-handed reliever Alex Burnett for assignment. He will have to clear the waiver process and accept an assignment to remain with the Baltimore organization.
And in another move, the Orioles also optioned right-handed starter Jake Arrieta to their Triple-A Norfolk minor league affiliate. Arrieta will serve as starting pitching depth for the Baltimore organization.
