Kevin Gausman has put on 12 pounds of muscle

Baltimore Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman told reporters on Thursday that he had added 12 pounds of muscle.

“I’ve put on 12 pounds already,” said the 23-year-old right-hander. “I feel great physically. I’m probably somewhere [near] the best physically I’ve felt.”

The fourth overall pick of the 2013 draft the Orioles are hoping that the 23-year-old is ready to take a step forward this season. Gausman appeared in 20 games last season making five starts. He finished with a 3-5 record, 5.66 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP.

Of course most people will remember him for doughnuts.
