Twins' Kyle Gibson shines in strong start Thursday against Royals
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/2/15) Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson had one of the finest outings of his young career on Thursday. Gibson held the Royals scoreless over eight innings in the 2-0 win. He struck out seven and walked four, as he evened his record to 6-6.
Gibson worked around a high amount of baserunners, but he managed to avoid any serious damage. The fine outing lowered his ERA to 3.04. Gibson has allowed three runs or fewer in four consecutive starts.
Twins SP Kyle Gibson snags first win in five weeks
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/27/15) Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson continued a remarkably consistent, if unspectacular, run Saturday in Milwaukee. His last four starts have proven nearly identical.
There was one difference against the Brewers. This time he won.
Gibson allowed two runs on six hits in 6 2/3 innings with one walk and three strikeouts. He pitched either five or six innings in his previous three outings and surrendered between 2-4 runs.
His latest start was marred only by RBI singles from Adam Lind in the fourth inning and Ryan Braun in the seventh that knocked him out of the game. His first win since May 24 raised his record to 5-6.
Gibson induced 12 ground balls that produced 13 outs. That proved encouraging.
"That's his game," Paul Molitor told MLB.com. "We talked before the game about being more aggressive. He gets a lot of ground balls with his downward movement, especially with his sinker."
Kyle Gibson loses third straight for Twins
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/21/15) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson lost his third straight game, dropping to 4-6 with a loss to the Cubs on Sunday.
Gibson, who hasn't won since May 24, allowed two runs on six hits over five innings. He walked three, struck out six and gave up a home run.
"They just did a good job battling and took a lot of close pitches," Gibson said, per MLB.com. "They were patient and made me work hard. I don't know how many games in my career where I had to throw 20 pitches in an inning. So they just did a good job battling."
Gibson's next start will be Saturday, at Milwaukee.
Twins SP Kyle Gibson gives up three runs in loss on Tuesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/16/15) Twins starter Kyle Gibson took a tough-luck loss on Tuesday, as he posted his seventh quality start of the season, but the Cardinals took the 3-2 victory. The right-hander pitched six innings, allowing three runs on six hits. He walked two and struck out four, as his ERA increased a tick to 3.33.
Despite the ultimate result, this was a nice rebound effort from Gibson, who had given up 10 runs (nine earned) over 13 innings in his previous two starts. His record drops to 4-5 with Tuesday's loss.
He's scheduled to make his next start on Sunday at home against the Cubs.
Twins P Kyle Gibson allows four earned runs in loss
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/10/15) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson gave up five runs — four earned — in Wednesday night's 7-2 loss to the Royals.
Gibson surrendered five hits and two walks while striking out six batters. Gibson now has a 3.24 ERA for the season. Gibson has now allowed nine earned runs over his past two games after giving up eight over the previous seven.
Gibson's next start is projected for June 16 against the Cardinals.
|2014 summary: Kyle Gibson fits the mold of a Twins pitch-to-contact starter, and thanks to an effective sinker, that approach worked well for him through the first three months of his first full season. Gibson entered July with a 7-6 record, a 3.77 ERA and six starts that lasted at least seven innings. In the dog days, Gibson became more hittable, and he finished with a 4.47 ERA and an average of 5.8 innings per start.|
Playing time status: Gibson is expected to begin the season in the Twins' rotation.
2015 outlook: While Gibson did a great job of preventing extra-base hits, he wasn't as successful at missing bats as he had been in the minors. If he can make some gains as a strikeout pitcher, Gibson could be viable in standard mixed leagues. Until that happens, though, he is more of a late-rounder in deeper mixed leagues.
