Kyle Gibson strikes out eight in win vs. Diamondbacks
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/23/14) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson earned a win Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on seven hits in seven innings and striking out eight in his team's 6-3 victory over the Diamondbacks.
Gibson (13-11) was handed a 3-0 lead after two innings and protected it by surrendering just an RBI single in the fourth. It's his first quality start sinc Aug. 13 and the first time he didn't walk a batter since Aug. 3. Gibson owns a 4.50 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 101:54 K:BB ratio in 172 innings. He's scheduled to face the Tigers in the season finale Sunday.
Kyle Gibson wins despite rough start
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/17/14) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson had a rough start Wednesday against the Tigers.
Gibson allowed four runs on seven hits over six innings. He struck out three and walked three during the outing. Gobson got himself in trouble immediately. After quickly getting two outs in the first, Gibson allowed a single, walk and two straight run-scoring singles. He had similar struggles in the second inning. With two outs, Gibson gave up a run-scoring single and a run-scoring double during the inning. He would settle in at that point, tossing four straight scoreless innings before leaving the game.
Despite the poor performance, Gibson picked up a win. He improved to 12-11. Gibson will take on the Diamondbacks in his next start.
Indians blast Kyle Gibson off the mound Thursday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/11/14) Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson entered his Thursday start in Cleveland having allowed just nine home runs in 27 outings. When he gave up two before retiring an out in the second inning it was obvious he wasn't going to stick around for very long.
Gibson was indeed removed after the third and finished having given up seven runs on seven hits with two walks and no strikeouts. He has not won since Aug. 13 as his ERA has skyrocketed to 4.58, its highest point since May 23. Gibson, who gave up a 442-foot shot to Carlos Santana in the first and solo job to Yan Gomes in the second, will attempt to bounce back Tuesday against Detroit.
Kyle Gibson settles for no-decision
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/5/14) Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson wasn't a factor into the decision Thursday night at home against the Angels. He allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out one over seven innings of work.|
Of his 95 pitches, 60 were strikes. Gibson owns a 4.27 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP over 27 starts (156 innings). His next start will come Wednesday at Cleveland.
Kyle Gibson sees boost in strikeout rate
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/31/14) Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson struck out six batters Saturday at Baltimore, which is the fourth time in his last seven starts he had at least five strikeouts. He accomplished that feat just twice in his first 19 appearances.
Gibson's strikeout rate has increased to 7.34 K/9 over his last seven starts.
"Having more consistency to my release point and the shape of my pitches was something that added to that tonight," Gibson said Saturday, per the Pioneer Press. "I’ve been really working on staying on line, and what that does is it allows all the pitches to come out of my hand on relatively the same trajectory toward home plate and the same arm slot. When you can do that, it takes the hitter a little bit longer to be able to recognize that."
|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.
