SP - BAL
Kyle Gibson is in agreement with the Baltimore Orioles on a one-year contract.
Gibson spent last season with the Phillies, compiling a 5.05 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP in 167.2 innings. The good news is his swinging strike rate, and K-BB% were his highest since 2019. The 35-year-old is likely not a draft target other than in 50-round draft champions.
The Pirates have "genuine interest" in free-agent RHP Kyle Gibson and the two sides recently talked via a video call.
Gibson is coming off a down season with the Phillies where he posted a 5.05 ERA across 31 starts. Nonetheless, he would likely be an upgrade for the Pirates starting rotation.
Kyle Gibson pitched six innings, allowing eight hits, two walks, and seven earned runs Saturday. He struck out seven Nationals’ batters and tallied his eighth loss of the season.
Gibson has a 7.82 ERA in his last seven starts. The 34-year-old has a 5.05 ERA, .268 BAA, and a 7.73 K/9 ratio in 31 games this season. Gibson has likely made his last start of the regular season.
Kyle Gibson allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks over five innings on Sunday against the Braves. He struck out nine and did not factor into the decision.
The nine strikeouts were impressive, especially coming over just five innings, but it is hardly a consolation to Gibson's fantasy managers. His season-long numbers now sit at a 4.84 ERA and 1.32 WHIP, and he's just as likely to give up seven runs as he is to pitch a shutout. Gibson has a solid matchup against the Nationals next, but absent deep NL-only leagues, you should have better options.
Kyle Gibson pitched five innings, allowing 12 hits, one walk, and seven earned runs Tuesday. He struck out three Blue Jays and tallied his seventh loss of the season.
Gibson was able to at least eat through five innings, but definitely had one of his worst outings of the season. This marks the second time this month that Gibson has allowed seven earned runs in a start. The 34-year-old has a 4.71 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and a .265 BAA in 29 games this season. Gibson is struggling right now and fantasy managers should play it safe and leave him on the bench.
