    Player Outlook

    Kyle Gibson continued to improve in his second full year in the majors, emerging as a fixture in the starting rotation, but judging by his final numbers, he's a Twins pitcher through and through, trusting his defense to make outs for him rather than blowing the ball by hitters. In an era when a strikeout per inning is practically the norm, Gibson's rate of 6.7 per nine simply doesn't measure up. It's almost like he was two different pitchers last year, though. He actually struck out a respectable 7.8 batters per nine innings over the final two-thirds of the season, offering some reason for optimism heading into 2016, but he wasn't necessarily better for it, compiling a 4.41 ERA during that stretch. He's not far from becoming mixed-league relevant if he continues to progress, but at 28, it's possible he has already peaked.

Gibson allowed an early run in the top of the first inning, but the Twins rallied to take the lead on the heels of an Eddie Rosario grand slam in the third. But the White Sox chipped away, adding runs in the fourth and sixth innings. He left the game with the score tied 3-3, but the bullpen gave up three runs in the seventh. Gibson has allowed three runs or fewer in five of his last seven starts, as his ERA is down to 3.84 on the year.
