Right-hander Kevin Gausman is not expected to make a start the remainder of this season, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said during his pre-game session Sunday.
Gausman will remain in the bullpen for the stretch run.
** Cuban defector Henry Urrutia is not able to enter Canada due to visa issues. So he will not be with the club in Toronto next week. He’ll likely go to Sarasota, Fla., to stay fresh and then will rejoin the club in Boston.
** Chris Davis was supposed to get a day off today, Showalter originally said. But after talking to Davis, changed his mind. The club’s top slugger is batting third and playing first base.
** The Orioles have signed two international players, according to Fred Ferreira: Right-handed Dominican pitcher Olelky Peralta, a 16-year-old whose fastball sits between 93 and 97 mph. The 6-foot-4, 185-pounder signed for $325,000. The Orioles also inked 18-year-old Venezuelan outfielder Jorge Gil. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound right-handed hitter is expected to have power. He signed for $30,000.
