Twins | Kyle Gibson strikes out nine Wednesday

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 18:07:08 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (11-11) allowed four hits over six scoreless innings Wednesday, Sept. 30, in the first game of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians. He walked two and tied a career high with nine strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) rebounded nicely from his outing against the Indians last week, when he allowed six runs on seven hits over just 2 2/3 innings. He will make his final start of the regular season against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, Oct. 4.

Indians | Chris Johnson out Tuesday

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 13:46:57 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Chris Johnson is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 29, against the Minnesota Twins. 3B Mike Aviles is batting ninth against Twins SP Kyle Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has seen regular playing time but has a .160 average in the past week, so the Indians are resting him for the day to try a different lineup. Aviles ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has a .571 average against Gibson, so he might be a good low-cost option for your lineup.

Indians | Michael Brantley not starting Tuesday

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 12:58:01 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 29, against the Minnesota Twins. OF Jerry Sands is in left field and he will bat seventh against Twins SP Kyle Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Brantley ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is likely getting a night off to avoid wear and tear on his shoulder, an injury which he just returned from on Sunday, Sept. 27. Sands ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) carries no FantasyScore value.

Twins | Kyle Gibson solid on Sunday

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 22:26:42 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson gave up five hits in 7 2-3 innings, struck out seven and walked one in a 7-0 shutout of the Chicago White Sox Sunday, Sept. 13. It was Gibson's third win in four games against the White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) showed the perfect example of a matchup on Sunday. He has mostly mastered the White Sox, so even though that is a small sample size you should watch for ideal matchups against other teams in the future. Gibson has struggled on and off this year, so not every team will be a perfect one to play.

Twins | Kyle Gibson has fared well against KC

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 14:47:41 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson is 5-2 with a 2.20 ERA in seven career starts against the Kansas City Royals, who he faces Tuesday, Sept. 8. Gibson has gone 2-2 with a 2.81 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 25 2/3 innings against the Royals in four starts against them in 2015. He threw his first quality start since Aug. 11 when he gave up three runs in six innings to the Chicago White Sox last Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: The past history for Gibson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) against KC is nice, but the fact remains that the Royals rank third in baseball with a .746 OPS against right-handers this season. Gibson is a risky choice on FantasyScore.

Twins | Kyle Gibson ties dubious mark

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 19:53:42 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson tied a career worst by allowing eight runs on nine hits in 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, Aug. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) is winless in his last four starts, allowing at least five runs in three of the four starts. His ERA has gone from 2.85 to 3.78 during the same stretch, and he needs to be avoided at FantasyScore until he can stop be bleeding.

Twins | Kyle Gibson trending upward

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 21:30:17 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson allowed four hits and struck out seven over eight scoreless innings in a win over the Kansas City Royals Thursday, July 2, and he has allowed two runs or less in three straight starts.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has his ERA down to 3.04, and while producing groundballs is what this sinkerball specialist does best, he has managed to log 35 strikeouts in his last 38 2/3 innings. If the matchup is right, Gibson could make a decent option if you are looking for a cheap No. 2 starter at FantasyScore.

Twins | Kyle Gibson likes facing KC

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:35:16 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson is 4-2 with a 2.68 ERA in six career starts against the Kansas City Royals. Gibson is 5-6 on the season. Gibson faces the Royals Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has a 3.30 ERA on the season, 1.26 WHIP and is fanning only 5.6 hitters per nine innings. The last time he faced KC June 10 he allowed four earned runs in six innings in a loss. The Royals are aggressive and don't strike out much. There's plenty of risk in going with Gibson on FantasyScore tomorrow.

Twins | Kyle Gibson has success against Royals

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 16:12:34 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson has made five career starts against the Kansas City Royals, going 4-1 with a 2.03 ERA over 31 innings. Gibson faces the Royals Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) pitched extremely well in May with a 3-1 record and a 1.36 ERA over six starts. However, he was roughed up for five runs on three home runs in his last outing. Even with his success against the Royals, Gibson should be viewed as nothing more than a flier second starting pitcher option for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.
