Twins | Kyle Gibson hurls gem Friday

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 19:24:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (3-6) allowed one run on two hits over eight innings in a victory over the Boston Red Sox Friday, July 22, with one walk and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson turned in one of his best outings of the season against one of the league's most prolific offenses, allowing no hits over his final seven innings. Going forward, he should still be viewed as a risky play due to his inconsistency and will make his next scheduled start versus the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, July 28.

Twins | Kyle Gibson inconsistent on road

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:25:04 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson is 1-2 with a 6.75 ERA in four road starts this year despite going 2-1 with a 3.65 ERA in his last four starts overall. On the year, he's 2-6 with a 5.12 ERA.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson really is a shaky matchup play in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, and he's striking out just 6.4 hitters per nine innings. You would be very wise to avoid him on the road against the BoSox, one of the most potent hitting lineups in all of baseball.

Twins | Kyle Gibson impressive in victory

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 21:42:22 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson allowed just five hits and a walk with a season-best seven strikeouts over seven scoreless innings to pick up his first win of the season Tuesday, June 28, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson has struggled all season, posting a 5.12 ERA and 1.49 WHIP. He has just two quality starts over his past five outings and is still worth only a roster space in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues at this point.

Twins | Phil Hughes, Trevor May to DL

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 10:43:44 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (knee) and RP Trevor May (back) are headed to the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 10, and SP Kyle Gibson (back) will be activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson is an AL-only option for now as he was smoked in his first few starts. Hughes has been awful as well and hasn't been the pitcher he was in 2014. You can cut bait outside of AL-only leagues. May was spectacular to begin the season, but he fell flat afterwards. With Glen Perkins (shoulder) on the mend, May probably missed the boat on the closer opening. He's worth having in AL-only leagues for K's, but that's about it.

Twins | Kyle Gibson to start Saturday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 14:40:49 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (back) is scheduled to be activated from the disabled list and start against the Boston Red Sox Saturday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson wasn't very good in his first four starts before landing on the DL (6.10 ERA, 1.74 WHIP, 4.8 K/9), so those in deep mixed leagues will want to wait and see how he fares in his return. A matchup against the Red Sox is probably the worst thing for Gibson in his return. They're one of the toughest lineups in the AL.

Twins | Kyle Gibson to rehab Sunday

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 14:38:41 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (back) will make another rehab start for Class AAA Rochester Sunday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson should return to a rotation spot for the Twins when he's ready, for lack of better options. He has a 6.10 ER, 1.74 WHIP and 11 strikeouts in 20 2/3 innings in four starts this year and can be avoided in most mixed leagues to see what he'll offer when he returns.

Twins | Kyle Gibson to make another rehab start

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 15:26:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (back) will make another rehab start if he doesn't suffer any setbacks during a bullpen session Thursday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: It's understandable if those in mixed leagues aren't rushing to reacquire Gibson. The right-hander was 0-3 with a 6.10 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and just 4.8 strikeouts per nine innings before his injury. He'll likely be put back into the rotation when he's ready, but those in deep mixed leagues should take a wait-and-see approach before considering adding him for rotation depth.

Twins | Kyle Gibson scratched, Phil Hughes in

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 11:56:14 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (back) has been scratched from his start Thursday, June 2, because of back stiffness. SP Phil Hughes will pitch against the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Sub out Gibson where you can Thursday, and especially in daily contests. He has a 6.10 ERA and a 1.74 WHIP through four starts this season, so at this point, it is best to leave Gibson to deep mixed and AL-only formats until he finds his form on the mound, especially because of his underwhelming 5.9 career K/9. Hughes had been relegated to the bullpen because of his struggles (5.74 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 5.1 K/9 through 10 starts), so there isn't a lot to like about him in any fantasy format Thursday.

Twins | Phil Hughes headed for bullpen

Mon, 30 May 2016 22:53:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes will head to the bullpen when SP Kyle Gibson (shoulder) returns from the bullpen Thursday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes has been atrocious this season, and he isn't worth hanging onto in most fantasy formats at this point. DFS players need not bother with him anymore, either.

Twins | Kyle Gibson throws bullpen

Thu, 19 May 2016 16:17:07 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (shoulder) threw a 45-pitch bullpen and passed this test. As a result, he should be able to head out on rehab directly.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson was solid last season, going 11-11 with a 3.84 ERA, but struggled through his first few starts in 2016 before landing on the disabled list. Thus, owners should probably wait until he returns and gets in a rhythm again before adding him in most leagues.
