As reported by Baseball America's Jim Callis, the Orioles signed Louisiana State righthander Kevin Gausman for $4.32 million shortly before the 5 p.m. Eastern deadline.
Gausman, the No. 4 overall pick, was a draft-eligible sophomore with two premium pitches in his 94-96 mph fastball that touches 98 and his 85-86 mph changeup. Scouts have questions about his breaking ball, as he switched between a curveball and a slider during his college career. He still went 12-2, 2.77 as a sophomore for the Tigers with a 135-28 strikeout-walk ratio in 124 innings.
