Gibson (1-5) pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing five hits and one walk while striking out seven in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.
It was Gibson's best start since he threw 7.2 scoreless innings against the White Sox on September 13. The 28-year-old right-hander has offered mixed reviews in his four starts since returning from the DL, but the 107 pitches he delivered Tuesday match his season high and indicate he's feel good to move forward. Gibson will look to build on this one when he takes the hill Sunday against the Rangers.
Gibson allowed five runs, four of which were earned, on eight hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings, but received no decision Wednesday against the Phillies.
Gibson was provided plenty of run support, but he allowed the Phillies to post runs in three of his six innings of work to keep him from having a chance to pick up a victory. Opponents have now scored at least five runs off of him in three of his last four starts, and his ERA is at 6.05. He'll make his next start Tuesday at the White Sox.
Gibson (0-5) held the Yankees to three runs on six hits over 6.1 innings Thursday, but took another loss. He struck out four and walked a pair.
This was a far sight better than Gibson's first start off the DL, and he deserved a better fate -- he left the game with two on and one out in the seventh inning, then reliever Fernando Abad promptly gave up a three-run homer that plated the inherited runners. Still, Gibson's low-strikeout, high-walk ways don't add up to a fantasy-friendly formula, making him a consideration strictly for adventurous AL-only owners and those in extremely deep mixed leagues.
Gibson (0-4) (shoulder) received a rude welcome upon his return from the DL on Saturday, as he was touched up for seven hits, five earned runs and a walk over 5.2 innings in a 15-4 loss to the Red Sox. He struck out two.
Gibson managed to only throw 56 of 94 pitches for strikes, and induced only six swinging strikes overall. The 28-year-old righty picked up where he left off before his injury, which isn't a good thing. He'd been battered by the Nationals for seven earned runs over three innings back on April 22, and had the misfortune of drawing one of the most dangerous offenses in baseball in the form of the Red Sox in his first start back. Gibson got into early trouble by yielding an RBI double to Xander Bogaerts and a three-run homer to Jackie Bradley, Jr. in the first inning, but left the game in the sixth with the Twins trailing only 5-4. He'll try once more for his first win of the season against the Yankees next Thursday.
Gibson (shoulder) was reinstated from the 15-day DL.
He's set to start Saturday against the Red Sox. The original plan was for Gibson to return last week, but the club decided to exercise caution and have the righty make a rehab start at the Triple-A level before returning.
