The Orioles recalled Gausman on Thursday from Triple-A Norfolk. He struck out seven in 6⅓ scoreless innings against the Texas Rangers on Thursday. He is 1-0 with a 3.09 ERA in 10 appearances, including two starts.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter says they're "trying to run our best five starters out there right now, and I think Kevin is one of them."
Norris is 2-7 with a 6.79 ERA in 11 starts. He allowed five runs in six innings in his last start Monday against the Rangers and struck out three and allowed one run in 2⅔ innings of Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox. Showalter says Norris has been dealing with an illness but was doing better Saturday.
