Twins' Kyle Gibson: Whiffs seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (9-4) earned the win against Oakland on Thursday, hurling seven innings and giving up three runs on six hits and no walks while striking out seven.

The damage against Gibson came on a pair of extra-base hits -- a run-scoring double by Khris Davis in the fourth inning and a two-run homer by Jurickson Profar in the sixth -- but the 31-year-old was otherwise effective, limiting Oakland to four singles without issuing a walk. He was credited with the win after Minnesota plated three runs in the seventh inning on a three-run homer by Eddie Rosario. Gibson has posted a 4.02 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 106:29 K:BB in 105.1 innings this season and is next scheduled to face the Yankees on Tuesday.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Labors in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson gave up three runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk while striking out five in 3.2 innings Friday in Cleveland. He did not factor in the decision.

He got off to a good start, but labored in the fourth inning and was lifted after hitting No. 9 hitter Greg Allen with a pitch on a two-strike count. Gibson has acknowledged that he has been struggling with his mechanics recently, per Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com, and that may have been the case again in this start, as he needed 80 pitches to get 11 outs. His next start will come Thursday against the A's.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: To pitch two innings Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson will start Sunday against the Rangers but will pitch just two innings, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The Twins will take advantage of the upcoming break to try some unconventional tactics. Gibson will open the game but won't pitch for long, as he'll be on just three days' rest. Devin Smeltzer is expected to follow him.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Strikes out five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits and four walks while striking out five through six innings in a no-decision against the Athletics on Wednesday.

Gibson gave up a three-run home run in the second inning and struggled with his command, but he also delivered a quality start to keep the Twins in the game. After being used out of the bullpen during an 18-inning contest in his last appearance, Gibson had eight days between starts and didn't appear to have many problems with the extra rest. The right-hander has an 8-4 record with a 4.13 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP heading into the All-Star break.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Pushed back to Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson will not start Sunday as scheduled and will be pushed back to start Wednesday against the A's, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Gibson was needed for an inning out of the bullpen in the Twins' 18-inning contest Thursday, and he has apparently not recovered from that outing just yet, so the Twins will instead go with a to-be-announced starter in Gibson's spot Sunday. Assuming Gibson only needs a few more days to reset his routine, he will be back on the mound for his final start of the first half Wednesday night.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Yields four runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (8-4) allowed four runs on seven hits with one walk and seven strikeouts across seven innings to earn a victory against the Rays on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old has been very hot and cold lately, but consider this one a rare start where he didn't pitch well and won. This marked the first time this season Gibson has allowed more than three runs and captured a victory. Interestingly, he earned three no-decisions in his first three outings this year, and since then, he's gone 8-4 and posted a decision in every appearance. In addition to his record, Gibson owns a 4.26 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 87 strikeouts in 86.2 innings this season. He will pitch next at the White Sox on Sunday.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Gives up six runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (7-4) gave up six runs on seven hits and five walks while striking out three through 4.1 innings, taking the loss against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Gibson struggled mightily with his command, walking five batters and enduring a 38-pitch second inning. He threw only 49 strikes in his 94 pitches overall, and he now has a 7-4 record with a 4.18 ERA through 14 starts this season. Gibson will look to get back on track in his next start Tuesday against the Rays at Target Field.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Shuts down Royals for seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (7-3) struck out six and picked up the win Friday, scattering two hits over eight scoreless innings in a 2-0 victory over the Royals.

The only two times Kansas City managed to get runners on base, the righty squelched the threat by getting a double play. He seemed headed for his first career shutout, but despite Gibson having thrown only 88 pitches (55 strikes), manager Rocco Baldelli elected to turn to Taylor Rogers in the ninth inning. Gibson will take a 3.70 ERA and 77:17 K:BB through 75.1 innings into his next start Wednesday, at home against the Red Sox.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Labors through five frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (6-3) was handed the loss Saturday at Detroit after surrendering five runs on eight hits over five innings. He struck out eight and walked two.

Gibson's major undoing Saturday came in the second inning when JaCoby Jones crushed a three-run homer to left field. The 31-year-old's five earned runs allowed Saturday matched the total from his previous three starts. Gibson will carry a 4.14 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 71:17 K:BB into Thursday start versus the Royals.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Start moved to Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson is scheduled to start Saturday against the Tigers, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The Twins have yet to announce who will start Friday's series opener, but Gibson and Jake Odorizzi will pitch Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Gibson last pitched Saturday against the Rays, so he'll be well rested when he takes the mound in Detroit. Over his last five starts, the right-hander is 4-1 with a 2.73 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 34:5 K:BB in 29.2 innings.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Wins fourth in last five starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (6-2) struck out three and picked up the win in Saturday's 6-2 victory over the Rays, allowing one unearned run on six hits and a walk over five innings.

The Rays nicked Gibson in the second inning on three singles and an error by second baseman Jonathan Schoop. However, the 31-year-old was able to dance around trouble in the third inning, when he left the bases loaded, and the fifth, when he stranded two more runners. Gibson will take a 3.75 ERA and 63:15 K:BB over 62.1 innings into his next start Friday, on the road against Detroit.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Notches win with quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (5-2) earned the win against the White Sox on Saturday by allowing one run on five hits over seven innings. He struck out nine and walked one.

Gibson's only hiccup of the day came during the fourth inning, when Jose Abreu connected for a solo home run. The 31-year-old has now won five of his last seven starts and has walked just six batters in 42.2 innings over that span. Gibson has a 4.08 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 60:14 K:BB and lines up to face the Rays on the road on Friday.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Notches fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (4-1) picked up the win Tuesday, giving up three runs on six hits and two walks over 5.2 innings while striking out five as the Twins downed the Angels 4-3.

The right-hander cruised through five innings but ran into serious trouble the third time through the order, finishing the night throwing 50 of 88 pitches for strikes. He'll take a 4.26 ERA and 45:13 K:BB through 44.1 innings into his next start Sunday in Seattle.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Strikes out 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (3-1) allowed one earned run on two hits and one walk while striking out 11 across six innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Gibson tossed his best outing of the season, with his loan blemish coming on a solo home run by Billy McKinney. He otherwise held the Blue Jays without an extra-base hit and didn't allow any runners to reach scoring position. While Gibson didn't pitch especially deep into the game, his 11 strikeouts stand out and were backed by 19 swinging strikes on a total of just 88 pitches. He'll look to build on this effort, with his next start likely to come Tuesday against the Angels.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Yields three unearned runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (2-1) allowed five runs (two earned) on seven hits with five strikeouts and two walks in a loss to the Yankees on Friday.

The Twins defense let down Gibson in this one, as three Yankees runs scored off two errors. Those mistakes forced Gibson to throw more pitches, and as a result, he had his shortest outing since April 9. Gibson dropped to 2-1 with the loss; he also has a 4.68 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 29 strikeouts in 32.2 innings this year. He is expected to make his next start on the road Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Gets second win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (2-0) allowed one run on three hits while striking out six through seven innings in a win over the Orioles on Sunday.

Gibson didn't have much of a problem cruising through the Orioles, surrendering only three hits including a solo shot by Chris Davis. The 31-year-old has two consecutive quality starts and has not walked a batter in either outing. The right-hander has a 4.88 ERA with a 24:8 K:BB through five starts this season. Gibson will get his next start Friday in Yankee Stadium.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Gets first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (1-0) struck out six and gave up two runs on five hits with no walks over six innings in a win over the Orioles on Sunday.

Gibson turned in a fine outing to win his first decision. This was easily his best start, as he induced 14 swinging strikes and 17 called strikes. The right-hander has a 1-0 record with a 6.10 ERA through four starts this season. Gibson will make his next start next Sunday in a rematch against the Orioles.

April 16, 2019 11:08 PM
Twins' Kyle Gibson: Strikes out four in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson struck out four but was tagged with four runs over 5.1 innings in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Tuesday. He allowed four hits and three walks as the Twins eventually lost 6-5.

Gibson shut out Toronto through the first five innings, but he ran into trouble in the sixth as he gave up three hits and a walk before he was removed. The 31-year-old's outing leaves him with an unsightly 7.36 ERA and 1.77 WHIP along with a 12:8 K:BB. He currently lines up to face the Orioles on the road Sunday.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Fails to finish fifth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson allowed three runs on six hits and three walks across 4.2 innings during Tuesday's 14-8 win over the Mets. He recorded six strikeouts but did not qualify for the decision.

Gibson had a 6-3 lead entering the fifth inning but was unable to work through the frame as he gave up a double and two walks, ending his evening at 97 pitches. The 31-year-old couldn't secure the victory and was lucky to escape with only three runs allowed, given that he exited with the bases loaded. Gibson has pitched 4.2 innings during each of his first two starts and will look to buck that trend Sunday against the Tigers.

Twins' Kyle Gibson: Escapes with no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 7-6 win over the Royals, allowing six runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks over 4.2 innings while striking out two.

The right-hander looked solid enough through four innings, but a five-run fifth capped by Alex Gordon's three-run homer sent Gibson to the showers. Coming off a career-best 3.62 ERA and 179 strikeouts in 2018, this wasn't the way the 31-year-old wanted to start his campaign, but a long layoff -- his last spring outing came March 22 -- may have played a part. Gibson will look for a better result Sunday at home against the Tigers.
