Twins | Kyle Gibson starts throwing

Mon, 02 May 2016 14:29:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (shoulder) started light throwing Monday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown yet if Gibson will be able to return as soon as he's eligible to be activated from the 15-day disabled list, but this news indicates he's getting closer. There are probably some frustrated owners out there who may have dropped him following his injury, so give him a look if he's on the waiver wire. He deserves to be on rosters in deep leagues, at least.

Twins | Kyle Gibson won't return when eligible

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:55:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (shoulder) is not likely to come off the 15-day disabled list when eligible, manager Paul Molitor indicated Friday, April 29. He is not expected to miss much more time.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson should be reserved in all fantasy leagues and avoided in DFS play until he can knock off the rust and make it through a full game or two without any setbacks.

Twins | Ervin Santana, Kyle Gibson will be ready

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 11:03:05 -0700

Minnesota Twins SPs Ervin Santana (back) and Kyle Gibson (shoulder) are both expected to be ready to come off the disabled list when they are eligible, according to manager Paul Molitor. Santana is dealing with a lower back strain, while Gibson is suffering from a right shoulder strain.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson, who was 0-3 with a 6.10 ERA in four starts, could have his rotation spot in jeopardy if top pitching prospect Jose Berrios impresses in his opportunity. Gibson should only be stashed in deeper AL-only leagues, while Berrios could be universally owned if he lives up to his billing against the Cleveland Indians Wednesday.

Twins | Ervin Santana, Kyle Gibson to DL

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:23:43 -0700

Minnesota Twins SPs Ervin Santana (back) and Kyle Gibson (shoulder) were placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, April 26. Santana is dealing with back spasms, while Gibson has a shoulder strain.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Duffey replaced Santana after he was scratched from his last start. Stash Santana in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, while Gibson can likely be jettisoned everywhere. Jose Berrios, the club's top pitching prospect, will be called up to make his major league debut Wednesday. The way Minnesota's rotation has underwhelmed, Berrios may be one of the better arms, meaning he could stick around for a while. Grab him everywhere.

Twins | Kyle Gibson won't make next start

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 13:59:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson will not be making his next start, and it's unclear when he'll start again.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson has had a rough go of it to begin the year, and he's sporting a 6.10 ERA, an 0-3 record, 1.74 WHIP and just 11 strikeouts and 12 walks in 20 2/3 innings. He should only be retained in deep AL-only leagues right now, albeit on the bench. Stay tuned for Minnesota's rotation plans moving forward.

Twins | Kyle Gibson not bad in loss

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 21:52:25 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson allowed three runs - one earned - and six hits with three walks and three strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a loss Monday, April 11, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson's defense let him down, and he didn't get a lot of run support. He is a risky fantasy option for the winless Twins, but he is still worth rostering in AL-only fantasy leagues since he is an above-average pitcher.

Twins | Kyle Gibson saddled with no-decision

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 16:52:05 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson allowed six hits and three runs (one earned) while walking three and striking out three in 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Chicago White Sox Monday, April 11.

Fantasy Tip: It was an improvement over Gibson's season debut April 6 when he allowed four earned runs while walking five against the Orioles. He showed in the second half last year that he has strikeout upside, but he has yet to show it so far in 2016. Stay patient in AL-only leagues, but there may be better options available in mixed formats.

Twins | Kyle Gibson missing more bats

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 10:54:11 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson struck out 7.6 batters per nine innings in his final 26 starts of 2015. He had seven games with seven or more strikeouts, which more than doubled the three games of such in his career. In 2014, he had an 8.8% swinging rate, which improved to 10.4% in those 26 starts.

Gibson, a ground ball pitcher, had just 2.7 strikeouts per nine innings in his first six starts with a high walk rate at 3.7 per nine innings. In those last 26 starts, he reduced his walk rate to 2.6 per nine innings.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson appears to have matured as a pitcher, and the evidence is there for sustained success. He'll be a cheap SP4 in mixed leagues.

Twins | Kyle Gibson has pitched well

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 13:48:54 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson allowed an unearned run on three hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings in spring action Monday, March 21, and he is lined up as the No. 2 starter this year. Gibson has a 2.31 ERA in four Grapefruit League starts.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson showed nice strides last year with a nice mix of swing-and-miss stuff with a ground-ball profile. There's reason to be optimistic he'll show more growth again in 2016 after a strong spring. Target Gibson for rotation depth in the later rounds.

Twins | GM talks Kyle Gibson

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 16:25:14 -0800

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson received praise from general manager Terry Ryan, and Ryan expects Gibson to have a breakout season in 2016. "There's a lot of talk about his strikeouts. If you evaluate that guy pitch by pitch, he's got three plus pitches in his approach, but you wouldn't know it with his strikeout ratio," Ryan said. "He's just gotta attack the strike zone more and not nitpick. He shouldn't be a finesse guy. He's got stuff with a power slider, a fastball that can sit around 92-93 (miles per hour) and a good touch and feel for a change. So there's a good chance Kyle Gibson is a guy who can take a step or two forward."

Fantasy Tip: With two full seasons under his belt, Gibson could be in line for improvement. He has flashed nice upside at times, too, and allowed two runs or fewer in 18 of his 33 starts last season and exactly three in another five outings. If he can limit his bad outings and increase his strikeouts -- just 6.7 K/9 last year -- there is potential. At this stage, though, he is still nothing more than a late-round option in deep mixed leagues and taking a wait-and-see approach in the majority of formats is advised.
