Kyle Gibson on His Best Outing of the Season

Kyle Gibson starts tonight against Baltimore. He pitched his best game of the season on Friday. The Minnesota Twins right-hander gave up a home run to the first batter he faced, but that was the lone blemish in a 2-1 win. Matching up against the Red Sox at Fenway Park, Gibson fanned six and allowed just three base-runners over eight innings of work. He mixed his pitches proficiently...

Kyle Gibson on Pitching to Contact

Kyle Gibson is a tall pitcher with a low K rate. The Minnesota Twins right-hander is 6-foot-6 and has fanned 5.76 batters per nine innings this season. Last year, that number was an even-more-contact-heavy 5.37. Strikeouts aren’t what he does. Gibson relies on ground balls for the majority of his outs. A first-round pick in […]

Gibson provides Twins with jolt in road win

With a sore back the culprit, Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson had to push his latest start back more than 10 days. Turns out it was worth the wait. Gibson spun a gem Tuesday in Minnesota's series opener, proving the back was no longer an issue. He allowed just two hits and struck out six Royals batters as the Twins topped Kansas City 2-1 at Kauffman Stadium. "I felt good. My back...

Gibson looks to take home success on the road

The Minnesota Twins have, surprisingly enough, posted a better record on the road so far than this season than they have at Target Field. After Wednesday's win in Toronto, the Twins are now 16-16 on the road and 15-17 home. For Kyle Gibson, the opposite has been true. After beating the Houston Astros on Saturday in Minneapolis, the Twins 26-year-old right-hander improved to 4-1 with...

Gibson bounces back, but to no avail

MINNEAPOLIS -- Kyle Gibson has fallen into a pattern. Every time the Twins right-hander has a rough outing, he's followed it up with a bounceback effort. That scenario was true again on Wednesday against the Texas Rangers. Fortunately for Minnesota, Wednesday's start was one of Gibson's bounceback outings after he allowed five runs in San Francisco over the weekend. Unfortunately...

Is Kyle Gibson like, good?

Kyle Gibson had the pedigree of a star after constantly making top prospect lists throughout his minor league career, and not just for the Twins, but for the entire league.  He had the track record with some very good minor league seasons, including 2013 before he was called up.  Then he finally made his debut last June and looked very good against Kansas City and suddenly the...

Minnesota Twins: Gibson hot on the mound

Minnesota Twins Target Field The Minnesota Twins have finally got their record to sit above the .500 mark.  And it only took three weeks to do so. At least, during this season. The last time the Twins had a winning record was May 13, 2013, when their record was 18-17.

Twins' Gibson pitches a gem, nearly goes the distance

MINNEAPOLIS -- Kyle Gibson wanted to go the distance. The Minnesota Twins right-hander was through eight scoreless innings Thursday against Toronto and had thrown 105 pitches. It was his best start as a major leaguer, and Gibson felt he still had plenty in the tank to pitch one more inning. Unfortunately for Gibson, Twins pitching coach Rick Anderson had other ideas. "Andy came up...
