Twins' Kyle Gibson: Changing delivery to keep arm healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson changed his delivery this offseason in hopes of keeping his shoulder healthy this season, Mike Berardino of The Pioneer Press reports.

Gibson was sidelined for seven weeks last season with shoulder pain and said he felt "some discomfort" when he started his offseason throwing program. Intent on finding a fix, the 29-year-old turned to a physical trainer who showed him how to pronate properly at the end of his delivery. This motion keeps the humerus from rubbing against connective tissues, providing better longevity throughout the season. Gibson figures to be a large part of the Twins' rotation this season, so the alteration could lend benefits down the homestretch.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson agreed to a one-year, $2.9 million contract with the Twins on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

A lack of alternatives in the Twins' organization is perhaps the best thing working in Gibson's favor entering 2017. He seems secure in the rotation (at least to start the year) despite posting a 5.07 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 147.1 innings last season. Gibson was done in largely by walks (3.4 BB/9) and home runs (1.22 HR/9).

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Eight strikeouts in final start of season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gibson gave up four earned runs over 6.1 innings with eight strikeouts and one walk, but got a no-decision in Thursday's win over Kansas City.

Gibson had a season high in strikeouts in his last start, which at least offers some hope for next year after a disappointing 2016. Gibson was expected to improve this season to become a reliable starter at the top of the rotation, but instead took a step back as both his walk rate and strikeout rates were worse than last year. He finishes the season with a 5.07 ERA and 4.75 FIP. It will be interesting to see if he still fits prominently into Minnesota's plans for the rotation once a new GM is hired in the offseason.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Struggles with control
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gibson gave up two runs over five innings with four walks and two strikeouts in a no-decision against Seattle on Friday.

Gibson struggled with his control, but the bigger issue for the Twins was the bullpen that gave up eight runs after Gibson left. He will make his last start of the season Friday at Kansas City.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Gives up three runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gibson (6-10) gave up three earned runs on seven hits with four strikeouts and a walk over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

Gibson gave up two runs in the first inning, but recovered to at least give his team five frames. He has two more starts to improve on a disappointing season, as he owns a 5.10 ERA thanks to K/9, BB/9 and HR/9 rates that are all worse than last year's.
