In need of bullpen arms the Baltimore Orioles have sent Kevin Gausman to Triple-A Norfolk.

Gausman, 23, allowed one run over 5 1/3 innings against the Boston Red SOx on Sunday but the game went into extra innings. Coupled with a double header on Saturday the team is short on arms.

“We went 12 innings yesterday and everybody threw pretty much. It’s just one of those things we needed an arm in case something happens. You always got to go on the side of caution and be prepared for everything,” said Gausman via the Baltimore Sun.

Gausman is 3-2 with a 3.51 ERA in six starts this season.

“I’m going to Norfolk. Probably get one start could be Friday, could be Saturday or Sunday, not sure yet,” he said. “It all depends on when I get there and when I throw my side or if I throw multiple sides.”

The Orioles added Julio DePaula to their bullpen.
