Gibson will end up serving an extremely brief stint on the injured list due to a minor groin problem. The right-hander has been a quality start machine so far this year. He might be worth starting in fantasy leagues tonight since his absence was such a short one.
The Rangers have placed Kyle Gibson on the 10-day IL with a right groin strain. The move is retroactive to May 22.
Gibson was coming off another excellent start on Friday against the Astros, and had allowed more than two earned runs just once over his last nine starts. There was no indication that he was battling any injury, so fantasy managers who are able to take him out of their lineups should do so immediately. He's more than worth a stash, however, as his new cutter had helped him to a career season thus far, during which he had pitched to a 2.24 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. He is expected to only miss a turn or two in the rotation, so fantasy managers should look for a short-term replacement.
