Kyle Gibson

I had the chance today to see Twins' prospect Kyle Gibson pitch live in the Arizona Fall League.

I've been a fan since his college days and during his 2011 Futures Game appearance. His delivery is clean and repeatable, a feat made more impressive considering his size, so it was a shock to me when he ended up needing a TJ procedure.

I made it a point to get to the park early and headed down to the bullpen area to watch his pre-game routine. Unfortunately the pass gates to the outfield walkways were locked, so I didn't have a good view of his warm-up.

His mechanics are clean, he repeats his delivery, his leg kick is the same from the windup and the stretch, his head stays still throughout. There really are no flaws.

He was dominant. He gave up six hits in his five innings, but three of them were on misplays.

So far over two starts, Gibson has pitched ten innings, allowed ten hits, one run, walked none and has totaled sixteen strikeouts.

He is on his way to being a true number one starter, a legitimate top of the rotation stopper type guy.
