|Kyle Gibson will get chance to make rotation this spring |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(1/13/14) Although he had a rough MLB debut in 2013, Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson will be in the mix for a rotation spot this spring, according to the Pioneer Press. Though, he will have to pitch better than he did in 10 starts for the Twins last season, when he went 2-4 with a 6.53 ERA and 1.75 WHIP.
"Last year, coming off Tommy John (surgery), we were worried so much about innings with him, and justifiably so," Twins general manager Terry Ryan said about shutting Gibson down after throwing 152 2/3 innings last season. "This year he's got an opportunity to make this club and the rotation. It will be a competitive situation with him and a number of other guys.
"He's in good standing. He's healthy. He got through the year 100 percent healthy for the most part. Innings shouldn't be that big of an issue this year. I don't think we have diminished our faith that he's going to be a good pitcher for us for years to come. We have high hopes for Kyle. Hopefully he'll respond and (justify) many of those things we have thought about his potential."

(9/2/13) The Twins have shut down prospect pitcher Kyle Gibson for the season, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Monday.
Gibson threw 152 2/3 innings between Minnesota and Triple-A Rochester. Gibson struggled in the majors, as he gave up a 6.53 ERA with 29 strikeouts against 20 walks in 51 innings. He was excellent in the minors, however, as he posted a 2.92 ERA with 87 strikeouts in 101 2/3 innings. He'll compete for a rotation spot next season.
|Kyle Gibson's demotion a way of protecting him |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/20/13) Twins manager Ron Gardenhire explained to MLB Network Radio Tuesday why the team chose to demote Kyle Gibson, who dropped to 2-4 with a 6.53 ERA following Monday's loss against the Mets.
"It comes down to command. He knew it," Gardenhire said. "He has good stuff, but has to get the command down. He was erratic."
Gardenhire added part of the reason for the demotion was to protect Gibson since he's a big part of the team's future.
"He was frustrated up here, and we don't want him to go through that," Gardenhire said. "He'll be a big part of our rotation next year."

2014 Draft Prep: AL-only H2H Mock
How did our most recent American League Head-to-Head draft play itself out? See how each of our 10 writers/owners filled out their rosters.
|Kyle Gibson missed nearly all of 2012 in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, but he entered the 2013 season as the Twins' most major league-ready pitching prospect. He finally got the call to make his debut in late June, but Gibson failed to add sizzle to the Twins' moribund rotation. In 10 starts, he produced a 2-4 record with a 6.53 ERA, and while he was burned by a .340 batting average allowed on ground balls that may not have been of his doing, Gibson hurt himself by throwing only 59 percent of his pitches for strikes. The 26-year-old still has plenty of promise, but with the acquisitions of Phil Hughes and Ricky Nolasco, he may be shut out of a rotation spot. Despite the offseason upgrades, though, the Twins' rotation is not inpenetrable, so Gibson could get a second chance in midseason, if not right out of spring training. He is worth stashing in AL-only leagues as well as in deep dynasty formats.
