Another solid start for Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson


(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.

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.

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

He has not won since Aug. 13 as his ERA has skyrocketed to 4.58, its highest point since May 23.

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

Kyle Gibson struggles against Cleveland


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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.
