Kyle Gibson tosses six scoreless innings in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson earned a win Wednesday, surrendering seven hits and one walk in six scoreless innings while striking out three in his team's 8-1 victory over the Mariners.

Gibson (8-7) was removed after six innings despite throwing just 91 pitches and having an eight-run lead with which to work. He's delivered scoreless outings in five of his last nine starts. Gibson owns a 3.92 ERA and 53:29 K:BB ratio in 101 innings going into the All-Star break.


Kyle Gibson lasts just two innings again in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson struggled through another brief start Friday, in a 6-5 loss to the Yankees.

Gibson accounted for all six runs in just two innings, though only five were earned. He allowed six hits and a walk in the game, with all six runs coming around to score without the benefit of a home run.

Gibson has lasted just two innings for the second time in three trips to the mound. He fell to 7-7 while his ERA rose to 4.17 with the loss. Gibson will try to end his slide when he takes on the Mariners Wednesday. 


Kyle Gibson pitches eight innings in win vs. Rangers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson earned a win Sunday, giving up two earned runs on eight hits in eight innings while striking out three and walking none in his team's 3-2 victory over the Rangers.

Gibson (7-6) was able to get through the eighth inning with the score tied 2-2, and he was put in line for the win when the offense scored the go-ahead run in the ninth inning. It was a great rebound performance for the pitcher, who gave up seven runs in two innings in his last outing. He owns a 3.77 ERA and 50:27 K:BB ratio in 93 innings going into Friday's matchup with the Yankees.


Kyle Gibson hit hard as scoreless streak comes to a halt


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson's scoreless innings streak came to an end in a hurry Tuesday, in an 8-6 loss to the Angels.

Gibson, who had tossed seven scoreless innings in his previous three starts, was tagged immediately for five runs in the first inning. He ended up allowing seven runs in just two innings of work, on four hits and two walks, while striking out just one batter on 50 pitches in the loss.

Gibson fell back to .500 with the loss, as his record dropped to 6-6. His ERA also ballooned to 3.92, and he will try to get back on track in his next outing, set for Sunday in Texas. 


Kyle Gibson 'just executing pitches'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Twins starter Kyle Gibson puts his 22-inning scoreless streak on the line Tuesday when Minnesota visits the Angels. His scoreless streak is the longest active streak in the major leagues and 14 innings shy of the Twins' record set by  reliever J.C. Romero in 2004, reports MLB.com.

"I'm just executing pitches," said Gibson, who's 6-5 with a 3.25 ERA in 14 starts. "I'm not doing anything different. I'm definitely looking at scouting reports and who I'm facing. But it comes down to executing, no matter who is out there."


Kyle Gibson still kind of fringy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2014) Kyle Gibson allowed just one hit in seven scoreless innings at Boston Wednesday, striking out a season-high eight. It was his third straight scoreless start and his fourth in the last five, which is reason enough to take a flier on him in Fantasy.

But maybe not to invest all your hopes and dreams in him.

It's a fine line in some leagues, I know, but all I'm trying to say is I don't entirely trust him yet. That's just my natural bias against pitch-to-contact types. Eventually, I come around, as I did with Kyle Lohse a couple years back, but I'll always prefer a bat-misser who has more say in the outcome of an at-bat.

That's the logic behind it, really. A batted ball has an infinitely higher chance of becoming a hit than a strikeout does, so more batted balls is inherently a bad thing. Of course, the quality of those batted ball makes a difference, and Gibson's sinker helps keep the quality low. Right now, he's in the same boat as Henderson Alvarez in that the good starts are too frequent to ignore but the bad starts, because of those days when the batted balls betray him, are still too threatening to dismiss.

Maybe Gibson's eight strikeouts Wednesday are a sign of things to come -- as Al Melchior recently pointed out, no pitcher has a better chase rate over the last 30 days -- but for now, I'm reserving judgment on Gibson.


Kyle Gibson spectacular again in pitcher's duel


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson ran his scoreless innings streak to 22 with seven scoreless frames Wednesday at Boston. However, unlike in his previous two scoreless starts, he didn't earn the win Wednesday in a no-decision, as Boston pitcher John Lackey was equally impressive with nine scoreless innings.

Gibson allowed just one hit Wednesday, and it didn't come until Daniel Nava's two-out double in the fifth inning. The right-hander didn't walk a batter and struck out a season-best eight, while lowering his ERA to 3.25.

Gibson has not allowed a run in four of his last five starts. He's expected to make his next start Tuesday against the Angels.


Kyle Gibson gets over .500 in win over Detroit


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson remained sharp on Friday against the Tigers in Detroit, improving to 6-5 on the year. He allowed five hits and two walks while striking out three over seven shutout frames of a 2-0 victory.

Of his 110 pitches, 66 were strikes. GIbson owns a 3.55 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP through 13 starts (76 innings). He will make his next start Wednesday at Boston.

Hot-at-home Kyle Gibson twirls gem against Astros


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson continued his Jekyll-Hyde act Saturday against Houston with another fine home start.

Gibson lowered his home ERA to 1.54 with seven shutout innings. He gave up just three hits, walked three and fanned five. He is 4-2 at Target Field and 1-3 on the road.

Unfortunately, he is not slated to pitch at home again until early July. Gibson, who has surrendered 15 earned runs in his last 13 innings pitched on the road, has his next start scheduled for Friday in Detroit.


Kyle Gibson drops under .500 Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson was not at his best on Monday, surrendering four runs on six hits and no walks while striking out one in six innings of a 6-2 defeat to Milwaukee, dropping to 4-5 on the year.

Over his last three starts covering 17 innings, Gibson has allowed nine earned runs. He will look to get back on track Saturday at home against Houston. He is 3-1 with a 1.85 ERA in three starts at home this season.

So who's intrigued by Kyle Gibson?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/29/2014) Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson, who looked like one of this season's biggest finds off the waiver wire when he allowed a combined two earned runs in his first three starts, threw six shutout innings against the Rangers Tuesday.

But as far as I'm concerned, the start didn't even happen. Look too much into it, and you're sure to get burned.

Gibson allowed five-plus earned runs in four of his previous six starts. So what if he's turned the corner? It's a nice thought, but considering he allowed a combined one earned run in the other two starts, you weren't the first to have it.

He's just not enough of a bat-misser to succeed with any real consistency. Like Henderson Alvarez, his sinker is effective enough to shut down the opposition when the ball bounces his way -- or, more accurately, his fielders' way -- but it leaves him susceptible to disaster. And with no strikeouts to make up for the inconsistency, he's not really worth the headache in mixed leagues.


Kyle Gibson shuts Rangers down in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Twins starter Kyle Gibson tossed the ball very well Wednesday, but didn't get much help in settling for a no-decision in a 1-0 loss to the Rangers.

Gibson tossed six shutout innings in his best start in more than three weeks. He scattered five hits in his six innings, while striking out four batters and walking none, the second time in a row he has avoided any free passes.

Despite the strong performance from Gibson, the Twins were unable to get him the win. He remains 4-4 with a 4.18 ERA in 10 starts, heading into Monday's outing against the Brewers. 


Kyle Gibson drops back to .500 Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) Twins starter Kyle Gibson was roughed up Friday night against the Giants in San Francisco, dropping to 4-4 on the season. The right-hander surrendered five runs on five hits and no walks while striking out four in five innings of a 6-2 defeat.

Gibson has allowed 11 earned runs over his last (two starts) seven innings pitched away from home. He will return home to make his next scheduled start Wednesday against Texas. He is 3-1 with a 2.25 ERA in four starts at home this season.

Kyle Gibson gets back on track vs. Mariners


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Twins starter Kyle Gibson bounced back with a quality start on Friday, limiting the Mariners to only six hits and one run in seven innings, improving to 4-3 on the year.

Gibson struck out four and walked two in 96 pitches, 57 for strikes. He improved his ERA from 4.74 to 4.20 on the year. Over his last three starts covering 16 innings, Gibson has allowed eight earned runs.

Following a 5-4 victory, Gibson will make his next start Friday at San Francisco. He is 1-2 with a 7.41 ERA in four starts away from home this season.

The bad Kyle Gibson appears Saturday against Tigers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) Twins starter Kyle Gibson continued his Jekyll-Hyde act Saturday in Detroit.

Gibson has had four excellent outings in which he has given up just two earned runs in 26 1/3 innings. He had hurled two duds in which he yielded 12 runs in 9 2/3 innngs. He added another against the Tigers.

The right-hander gave up six runs in the second, though two errors aided the Detroit cause. The outburst was capped by a three-run homer off the bat of Miguel Cabrera.

Gibson finished just two innings and surrendered six runs on seven hits with one walk and one strikeout in dropping his record to 3-3 and raising his ERA to 4.74. He will seek a better outcome at home Friday against Seattle.


Kyle Gibson delivers seven scoreless innings vs. Indians


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2014) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson surrendered just two hits and three walks in seven scoreless innings while striking out one Monday, but he didn't factor into the decision in his team's 1-0 win over the Indians.

Gibson deserved a better fate after bouncing back from giving up 12 runs in his previous two starts combined, but his scoreless outing was matched on the Cleveland side. He owns a 3.50 ERA and 16:17 K:BB ratio in 36 innings. Gibson will take on the Tigers in Detroit Saturday.


Kyle Gibson gives up five runs in loss vs. Dodgers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Dodgers plated two in the third inning before scoring three more with two outs in the sixth. Gibson owns a 4.34 ERA and 15:14 K:BB ratio in 29 innings. He's on track to take on the Indians in Cleveland Monday.

Kyle Gibson hammered for seven runs Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson surrendered seven earned runs on 10 hits and two walks in three-plus innings while striking out three in his team's 7-3 loss to the Rays Tuesday.

Gibson (3-1) wasn't getting hit hard, but the sheer volume of runners on base led to an ugly stat line and an early exit. He began the fourth inning by giving up two singles before being removed, and both runners would come around to score. Gibson owns a 3.63 ERA and 13:11 K:BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Tigers at home Sunday.
