Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson allows eight hits in losing effort


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson allowed three runs on eight hits in five innings of work in Minnesota's 11-3 loss to the Rays on Sunday.

Gibson's troubles started in the third when he allowed the first four hitters of the inning to reach base safely, leading to a run. Then, James Loney reached on a fielder's choice, plating a second run. He would give up one more run in the fifth. 

"I would've liked to get a few more innings under my belt," Gibson said to MLB.com. "Five innings leaves a lot of pressure on the 'pen with four innings against a pretty tough team."

Gibson, now 3-3, moved his ERA to 2.98 in 48 1/3 innings of work. He will look to bounce back Sunday against the White Sox.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Gibson only allowed one earned run and struck out six batters. He gave up five hits and didn't walk any batters. However, he left the game with the Twins trailing 1-0, not allowing his strong effort to warrant a win. 

Gibson has now only allowed one earned run in his past three starts. 

His next start is projected for Sunday against the Rays.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson allowed two runs on five hits in seven innings of work in Minnesota's 4-2 win over the Mariners Sunday. 

Gibson worked efficiently through his start, with only one issue coming in the fourth inning. Gibson allowed a lead off home run to Seth Smith over the right field wall to get things started. Then after two batters reached base, Logan Morrison picked up an RBI on a groundout to third base. He finished off strong, with three strikeouts and three walks, but remains 1-2 on the year.

Gibson now boasts a 4.84 ERA and will look to get his second win Friday against the White Sox.


Twins P Kyle Gibson loses to Royals for first time in career


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson went five innings and gave up four runs — three earned — in Monday's 7-1 loss to the Royals. 

This was the first time in his career that Gibson lost to the Royals. He entered this game having won each of the four games he's played against Kansas City. This time, though, the Royals were able to get the best of him with a three-run sixth inning. 

Yet to record an out, Gibson gave up a two-run double to Kendrys Morales before being pulled. 

Gibson gave up four hits and walked four batters. He did not record a strikeout. 

Gibson's next scheduled start is projected for Sunday against the Mariners. 


Twins SP Kyle Gibson is a perfect 4 for 4 in career vs. Royals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson heads into his start Monday against the Royals with a career 16-17 record and 4.97 ERA in 43 starts. Although, the Royals are one team that Gibson hasn't struggled against in his young career.

Gibson has won all four of his career starts against Kansas City, including last Wednesday. He has a 1.38 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in those outings. Gibson can't pinpoint why he has had so much success against the AL Central foe, but added the key is pitching inside and using their aggressiveness against them, per MLB.com.

The Royals have scored less than four runs just twice in 12 games, including Gibson's outing Wednesday. They are tied for the second-most runs (68) in the majors.


Twins' Kyle Gibson allows one run in win vs. Royals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson picked up his first win of the season Wednesday, giving up one earned run on  nine hits in 6 2/3 innings while striking out three and walking none in his team's 3-1 victory over the Royals.

Despite surrendering nine hits, Gibson (1-1) didn't allow an extra-base hit in the game, and the Royals were only able to eek out a run in the fourth inning before the starter departed.

"If I can limit `em to singles and allow the defense to do some work behind me, that's going to be big for me," Gibson said after the game, per the Associated Press.

He takes a 6.10 ERA and 3:5 K:BB ratio into Monday's rematch with the Royals.


Twins P Kyle Gibson gets rocked, takes the loss in season debut


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson had a terrible outing on Thursday in the team's 7-1 loss to the Tigers.

Gibson gave up six runs on eights hits with five walks in 3 2/3 innings pitched. He also surrendered a three-run homer to J.D. Martinez, finishing the game with an ERA of 14.73.

"With the walks, I didn't give myself a chance," Gibson said. "They started hitting bloops and it just compounded the problem. They'd find a hole and it would lead to a few runs, per the Star Tribune."

Gibson hopes for a better performance in his next outing against the Royals on Wednesday.


Twins P Kyle Gibson allows four runs in 4-2 loss to Red Sox


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson struggled on the mound Saturday, giving up four runs on nine hits in the team's 4-2 loss to the Red Sox in Grapefruit League action.

"I think everybody wants to give up less runs and hits, but when you look outside the numbers, I think I'm pretty close," said Gibson. "My curveball today was a lot better. Pitch-wise, what I came in here to try to do, I think I was pretty successful."

In 19 innings pitched this spring, Gibson has posted an ERA of 2.75 with 17 strikeouts

Another solid start for Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/25/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson records another strong start Wednesday, holding the Rays to one run on two hits while striking out seven in six innings of work.

Gibson's only blemish was a first-inning home run surrendered to Rays catcher Rene Rivera .

"I'll take the next two outings and keep trying to get sharp and just keep the consistency," Gibson said. "You're never exactly where you want to be at this game, so still working on things and still trying to iron things out."

Gibson has now started five games this spring, posting a 2.75 ERA in 19 2/3 innings with 17 strikeouts and seven walks.


Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson goes four scoreless Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson posted his strongest outing of spring training Sunday, going four scoreless innings against the Cardinals. Gibson seemed to breeze through his outing, but he thought it was more of a labor, reports MLB.com.

"I wouldn't call [those innings] easy," Gibson said. "It was a little different with the heat out there, a little different getting through the third and fourth innings. I made it a little harder on myself than I should have with getting behind some hitters."

Gibson is working to improve all three of his pitches as the season approaches.

"The slider was probably about as good [today] as it's been in my three starts, so I was happy with that," Gibson said. "I've been trying to work on my curveball, and sometimes it's good and sometimes it's not. It's still pretty inconsistent but it's getting better as well. My changeup's been as I would hope it'd be against righties. … as long as I've got a good feel with it and I'm executing it down, I think it'll be a good pitch for me."


Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson trying to maintain velocity on fastball


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson is trying to maintain the velocity he currently has on his fastball, reports The Minneapolis Star Tribune.

"I really would like to stay right around there, and I think I can," Gibson said. "I can throw 94, 95 [mph] and it'll still sink."


Twins' Gibson feels 'a little more comfortable' with curveball


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson surrendered one run on two hits and one walk in two innings while striking out two in his spring debut Thursday, using the outing to work on his curveball, the Associated Press reports.

"I felt really good," Gibson said. "I'm working on some stuff, and some stuff worked out that I was working on. I threw more curveballs than normal. That's what spring training's for. It's just fun to be able to work on a particular pitch. I feel a little more comfortable."

Gibson, who underwent Tommy John surgery in 2011, completed his first full major-league deal in 2014, going 13-12 with a 4.47 ERA and 107:57 K:BB ratio in 179 1/3 innings.


Twins tab Kyle Gibson for Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) The Twins have tabbed pitcher Kyle Gibson for the start on Thursday, according to MLB.com.

Gibson is coming off a season in which he posted a 4.47 ERA over 179 1/3 innings. He's expected to open the year in the team's rotation. It's unclear how long Gibson will pitch in the spring opener. 


Twins' GM believes Kyle Gibson can get to the next level


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Twins general manager Terry Ryan believes pitcher Kyle Gibson can get to the next level, according to the Star Tribune.

"The guy has too good of stuff not to be more consistent," Ryan said. "I don’t think it’s 'if' he makes another jump. He’s going to make a jump. It’s a matter of how high."

Gibson showed flashes of promise in 2014. While his overall numbers were just average, Gibson was solid during the first half of the year. He posted a 3.92 ERA over 101 innings to start the year, but struggled with a 5.17 ERA in the second half. Gibson said the reason for his success last year had to do with execution.

"The reason for the jump was my focus on executing pitches," Gibson said. "In 2013 I got caught up in all the information and the scouting reports instead of realizing this is the pitch I need to execute so let’s execute it."

Gibson said he's hoping to increase his strikeout rate this season, but wants to make sure he can still retain his strong ground ball rate. The 27-year-old posted a 4.47 ERA over 179 1/3 innings last season.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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
(9/17/2014) 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
(9/11/2014) 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
(9/5/2014) 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
(8/31/2014) 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."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
