Description: Minnesota right-hander Kyle Gibson allowed two runs on eight hits over eight innings in a win over Texas on Sunday.
Insight: Gibson gave up seven runs over two innings in his last start, but he'll finish with a 3.16 ERA in June. With a 3.77 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP and 50 Ks in 93 innings, Gibson is an AL-only starter at best.

Description: Minnesota right-hander Kyle Gibson allowed just one hit and no walks in seven scoreless innings Wednesday at Boston.
Insight: Gibson is unscored upon in his last 21 innings (9 H, 5 BB, 16 Ks) and now has a 3.25 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP on the year. The right-hander's value is limited because his K/9 is just 4.99, but he has a 55.8 percent ground-ball rate, a 0.43 HR/9 and a 3.51 FIP.
Hot6/13/2014 10:29:00 PM
Description: Minnesota right-hander Kyle Gibson ran his scoreless streak to 15 innings Friday in a win against Detroit.
Insight: He's only allowed nine hits over that span. As good as he's been, it's tough to endorse Gibson (6-5, 3.55 ERA) as a fantasy option when he's only striking out 4.5 hitters per nine innings.
6/7/2014 7:29:00 PM
Description: Twins starter Kyle Gibson allowed just three hits in seven scoreless innings Saturday against the Astros.
Insight: Gibson has a 3.91 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP, but he's struck out just 35 batters in 69 innings.
5/5/2014 10:31:00 PM
Description: After two rough outings in a row, Twins starter Kyle Gibson was excellent Monday against Cleveland.
Insight: The Indians managed just two hits in seven innings against him. Despite an impressive 3.50 ERA over six starts, Gibson has actually walked more batters than he's struck out this season (17 BB, 16 K's).
Hot4/17/2014 10:00:00 PM
Description: Minnesota starter Kyle Gibson threw all zeros Thursday in a win against the Blue Jays.
Insight: Gibson might be one of the biggest fantasy surprises of the season so far with three victories and a 0.93 ERA in 19 1/3 innings. He's still available in 96 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues, though it won't be that way for long.
6/29/2013 8:28:00 PM
Description: Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson gave up two runs on eight hits and didn't walk anyone in six innings Saturday against the Royals. Gibson, the No. 22 overall pick in the 2009 MLB Draft, was making his major league debut.
Insight: He had a 3.01 ERA and a 79/28 K/BB in 92 2/3 innings with Triple-A Rochester this season. He would have made it to the big leagues sooner but he underwent Tommy John surgery in 2011. He should be a solid mixed league option in deep leagues.

Description: The Twins have promoted pitching prospect Kyle Gibson to the majors. He's 7-5 with a 3.01 ERA and a 79/28 K/BB in 92 2/3 innings with Triple-A Rochester this season.
Insight: He'll debut against the Royals Saturday and should be added in deeper mixed leagues. The right-hander is 25 but has yet to make the big leagues due to Tommy John surgery in 2011.
