Kyle Gibson holds steady in tight loss

Kyle Gibson delivered a solid outing, allowing just one earned run on three hits and four walks while striking out three over six innings in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite a commendable performance that kept his team competitive, Gibson's season stats remain a mixed bag. With a 5.04 ERA and a 5.94 FIP through four starts, his underlying metrics suggest he's been somewhat fortunate, particularly given a low .211 BABIP that could regress. Fantasy managers should be cautious; while his WHIP is serviceable, his low strikeout rate (5.0 K/9) and high walk totals limit his upside. Gibson's ability to eat innings is valuable, but his lack of dominance in the strikeout column and vulnerability to walks make him a risky play in most fantasy formats.
