Orioles keep Kevin Gausman in rotation, move Bud Norris to bullpen

CHICAGO -- Right-hander Kevin Gausman will remain in the Baltimore Orioles rotation and start Tuesday against the Minnesota Twins, while Bud Norris will move from the rotation to the bullpen.

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.
