Kyle Gibson gave up five runs on seven hits over five innings in a loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.
Gibson actually gave up just one extra-base hit, a double by Justin Upton, but he walked in one run and allowed another to score on a wild pitch. Gibson walked four in the game, and he's now got a 1.54 WHIP to go with a 5.09 ERA in 18 starts. Things don't get much better for the 28-year-old going forward, either, as he is set to meet the Blue Jays on Sunday. Aug 23 - 11:47 PM

Kyle Gibson allowed three runs on eight hits in a complete game 10-3 victory over the Braves on Wednesday.

He fanned six and walked three while tossing 115 pitches in his first complete game of the year and second of his career. The win moves him to 5-7 with a 4.90 ERA after 17 starts. He doesn't strike out enough batters to earn much trust as a fantasy pitcher. He has accumulated 71 punchouts and 35 free passes in 101 innings.

Kyle Gibson was tagged for six runs (five earned) over five-plus innings Friday in a loss to the Royals.

Gibson was handed the lead in the third inning, but he gave it right back in the fifth. He faced two batters in the top of the sixth and was pulled after giving up an RBI double to Raul Mondesi. Gibson struck out four and walked two while matching a season-high with 10 hits allowed. The 28-year-old showed some flashes of usefulness at times last season, but his 5.09 ERA through 16 starts this year has been a disappointment.

Kyle Gibson pitched through four walks to pick up the win against the Rays on Sunday, yielding two runs over five innings.

Gibson scattered six hits and struck out a pair of batters on the afternoon. While the Rays failed to truly square him up for scoring damage, his lack of control caused his pitch count to balloon and he had already fired 107 pitches (63 strikes) by the time he trotted off the mound after five frames. Manager Paul Molitor didn't push his luck. For the season, Gibson owns a 4.86 ERA and 1.48 WHIP. He will host the Royals next time he toes the rubber.

Kyle Gibson was charged with six runs on 10 hits and a walk over 4 2/3 frames but escaped with a no-decision in Tuesday's 10-6 win over the Indians.

The Twins handed Gibson an 8-0 lead after four innings but he still wasn't able to pick up a win, as the Indians knocked him out during a six-run fifth inning. The right-hander had put together two straight nice outings before Tuesday's shellacking. He'll try to bounce back versus the Rays on Sunday.
Aug 2 - 11:40 PM

Kyle Gibson limited the Orioles to two runs over six innings Thursday.

Gibson gave up a leadoff homer to Adam Jones, but he held the O's to just one more run despite giving up nine hits total on the evening. The right-hander also struck out six without issuing a free pass. He left before the game was decided, depriving him of his fourth win, but he lowered his ERA to 4.54 through 13 starts. Gibson will instead look for that fourth win Tuesday against the Indians.
Jul 28 - 10:29 PM

Kyle Gibson delivered an outstanding performance in Friday's victory over the Red Sox, allowing just two hits over eight innings of one-run ball.

Gibson walked one and punched out six on the evening. He gave up a leadoff home run to Mookie Betts to begin the ballgame, then shut down the vaunted Red Sox offense for eight innings. He'll look to further improve upon a 4.67 ERA and 1.39 WHIP when he squares off against Orioles at home on Thursday.
Jul 23 - 12:14 AM

Kyle Gibson was lit up for four earned runs in six innings Sunday as the Twins fell to the Indians.

Gibson surrendered 10 hits, including a home run to Mike Napoli in the top of the second inning that set the tone for the Indians' 6-1 win. Gibson stands 2-6 on the year with a 5.12 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 63 1/3 innings. He'll face a dangerous Red Sox offense next.
Jul 17 - 5:34 PM

Kyle Gibson struggled in a no-decision against the Rangers on Friday, allowing four runs on seven hits over his five frames.

The right-hander struck out six and walked three in the contest. The Rangers struck first with a pair of runs in the first inning then scratched out another two in the fourth on run-scoring hits from Shin-Soo Choo and Ian Desmond. While Gibson has pitched better of late, he still finishes the first half with a disappointing 5.02 ERA and 1.48 WHIP.
Jul 8 - 11:40 PM

Kyle Gibson threw seven shutout innings in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

Gibson turned in easily his best start of the season, scattering five hits and a walk while striking out a season-high seven batters. The win was his first of the year in eight starts, leaving his record at 1-5. The 28-year-old will continue working on his 5.12 ERA and 1.49 WHIP Sunday against the Rangers.
Jun 28 - 11:07 PM

Kyle Gibson gave up five runs -- four earned -- in six innings Wednesday against the Phillies.

Gibson was facing an ice-cold offense, but he gave up two homers and six additional hits tonight. Thought of as a breakthrough candidate by some, he's currently 0-5 with a 6.05 ERA in seven starts.
Jun 23 - 12:22 AM

Kyle Gibson allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

When Gibson pitches poorly, he loses, and even when he pitches moderately well he still loses. The right-hander gave up six hits and walked two, but his offense afforded just one run on the evening, leaving Gibson 0-5 with a 6.06 ERA and 1.59 WHIP on the season. The 28-year-old will continue searching for his first victory Wednesday against the Phillies.
Jun 17 - 12:37 AM

Kyle Gibson surrendered five earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Red Sox.

Minnesota's bullpen went on to yield another 10 runs in the 15-4 blowout loss. It was Gibson's first start since April 22, when he suffered a right shoulder strain. The right-hander walked two and gave up seven hits. He owns a brutal 6.49 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in 26 1/3 starts (five starts) this season.
Jun 11 - 5:57 PM

Twins activated Kyle Gibson from the 15-day disabled list.

A right shoulder strain felled Gibson near the end of April. He is expected to start against the Red Sox on Saturday. Prior to the injury, the 28-year-old right-hander made four starts, pitching to a 6.10 ERA and 1.74 WHIP across 20 2/3 innings.
Jun 10 - 2:43 PM

Kyle Gibson (shoulder) is scheduled to start Saturday against the Red Sox.

Gibson was supposed to return from the disabled list this past weekend, but a stiff back delayed that plan. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since April 26 because of a right shoulder strain. He is obviously a poor fantasy bet Saturday versus the dangerous Boston offense.
