This will be his fifth MLB team. It’ll be his first team that he will play for in Canada.

This past season, Gausman went 14-6 with the Giants. He had a 2.81 ERA in 33 starts. Gausman also allowed 66 runs, including 60 earned runs, on 150 hits in 192 innings.

The 192 innings were the most that he pitched in a season. His previous high was 186 2/3 innings during the 2017 season with the Orioles.

Gausman made his lone All-Star appearance in his career this past season.

As a starter, he is 64-72 with a 4.02 ERA in 150 games, including 127 starts. He has four games finished and one complete game.

He has allowed 557 runs, including 526 earned runs, on 1,164 hits in 1,177 1/3 innings.
