After watching the Pirates fail to sign first rounder Mark Appel, Orioles Nation began to get a bit concerned that the deal wouldn’t get done with Gausman.
“Happy to be the newest member of the Baltimore Orioles organization,” he tweeted. “Living my dream.”
UPDATE: Keith Law reports that the O’s signed Gausman for $4.32 million. As Steve Melewski points out, $4.32 million allows the Orioles to stay at their bonus pool. Gausman was slotted for $4.2 million.
The Orioles will announce Gausman’s deal at 6:15 PM.
