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.
