Kyle Gibson struggles against Cleveland


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson had a rough start Tuesday against the Indians.

Gibson allowed five runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out four and walked two during the outing. Gibson was spotted a five-run lead before he even took the mound, but couldn’t hold on. A solo home run in the second started the scoring for Cleveland. They struck again in the fourth after Gibson gave up three singles during the inning. Gibson gave up another run in the fifth on a wild pitch. After giving up a single in the sixth inning, Gibson was removed from the game. That run would come around to score, and was charged to Gibson. 

Gibson left with the game tied, picking up the no-decision. He’ll make his next start against the Tigers.

Kyle Gibson out, Anthony Swarzak in as Wednesday starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Twins starter Kyle Gibson has been scratched from his Wednesday start against visiting Cleveland due to back stiffness. Anthony Swarzak is set to move from the bullpen to replace him.

Swarzak has been a bit of a disappointment this season with a 4.34 ERA in 30 appearances. He posted a 2.91 ERA a year ago while working a major league-high 96 innings. The right-hander has been particularly poor against the Indians, who have battered him for five runs on nine hits in 1 2/3 innings in 2014.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Kyle Gibson hit hard as scoreless streak comes to a halt

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.
