Twins | Kyle Gibson trending upward

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 21:30:17 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson allowed four hits and struck out seven over eight scoreless innings in a win over the Kansas City Royals Thursday, July 2, and he has allowed two runs or less in three straight starts.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has his ERA down to 3.04, and while producing groundballs is what this sinkerball specialist does best, he has managed to log 35 strikeouts in his last 38 2/3 innings. If the matchup is right, Gibson could make a decent option if you are looking for a cheap No. 2 starter at FantasyScore.

Twins | Kyle Gibson likes facing KC

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:35:16 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson is 4-2 with a 2.68 ERA in six career starts against the Kansas City Royals. Gibson is 5-6 on the season. Gibson faces the Royals Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has a 3.30 ERA on the season, 1.26 WHIP and is fanning only 5.6 hitters per nine innings. The last time he faced KC June 10 he allowed four earned runs in six innings in a loss. The Royals are aggressive and don't strike out much. There's plenty of risk in going with Gibson on FantasyScore tomorrow.

Twins | Kyle Gibson has success against Royals

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 16:12:34 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson has made five career starts against the Kansas City Royals, going 4-1 with a 2.03 ERA over 31 innings. Gibson faces the Royals Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) pitched extremely well in May with a 3-1 record and a 1.36 ERA over six starts. However, he was roughed up for five runs on three home runs in his last outing. Even with his success against the Royals, Gibson should be viewed as nothing more than a flier second starting pitcher option for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Twins | Kyle Gibson finishes off solid month

Sat, 30 May 2015 18:05:17 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson finished the month of May with a 3-1 record and a 1.36 ERA in six starts.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) allowed two runs or less in five of his starts in May, and while he doesn't pile up enough strikeouts to be considered a must-start, he makes a solid option at FantasyScore if you are looking to spend money on other positions.

Twins | Kyle Gibson not fanning many

Tue, 12 May 2015 13:57:30 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson enters his start against the Detroit Tigers Tuesday, May 12, with a 17-inning scoreless streak dating back to April 26. Gibson has the lowest strikeout rate in the majors (7.1%) and has walked more (15) than he's struck out (11).

Fantasy Tip: With numbers like that, Gibson ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is flirting with danger. Opponents also have a batting average on balls in play of just .256 against Gibson in six starts, meaning more balls will likely start falling against the right-hander. Be careful in trusting Gibson at FantasyScore, especially since he's only striking out 2.72 hitters per nine innings.

Twins | Kyle Gibson has dominated Royals

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:31:56 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson is 4-0 with a 1.38 ERA in 26 career innings over four starts against the Kansas City Royals. Gibson allowed just one run over 6 2/3 innings to beat the Royals last Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is a midrange starting pitcher option at FantasyScore Monday evening. His history against KC is a positive, but the Royals have been so hot out of the gate offensively that it would make sense to avoid him.

Twins | Kyle Gibson likes facing Royals

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 10:59:50 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson is 3-0 with a 1.40 ERA in three career starts against the Kansas City Royals, who he will face Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) had a rough go of it in his season debut last week. He should be considered a weak play Wednesday against the Royals, who surprisingly, have been one of the hottest hitting offensive teams in the league to begin the season.

Twins | Kyle Gibson encouraged by session

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:37:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (back) was pleased with his long-toss session from 120 feet and the 10 to 15 throws he made in the bullpen Friday, July 25. He's hopeful he can return to the rotation Tuesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup against the Kansas City Royals would be favorable, but he's been living on borrowed statistical time and would probably be rusty. Do you need the stream in a deep mixed league?
