Big day for Kyle and the Twins today... For the first time since early last August, Kyle Gibson is on the mound in a game. He started for the Twins GCL team. In the first inning, he got a ground out. The second batter walked, but he erased him on a ground-ball double play.

The Twins need Gibson more than anyone else in their farm system right now. It's good to hear he's pitching in game situations again.

EDIT: Just looked and according to wikipedia he had his surgery in early November last year. I had thought it was August for some reason. So if wiki is accurate, he'll only be about 17 months out from surgery. Still "should" be all the way back by then, or very close, if all went and goes well.

Tosoni playing in this game for GCL Twins as well, 0-3/BB/R/RBI/SB

If all goes well, the Twins hope Gibson will go to the Arizona Fall League.
I believe his TJ Surgery was in mid-September.

Interesting to see if MN puts an innings limit on Gibson next yr..ala Washington.
They didnt on Liriano in 08 as he pitched 200 combined innings. He hasnt had arm prolems from it IMO as his troubles have been command

wonder how MN will play it w/Kyle over the last 2wks...Ryan has said he would like to get Gibson a ROC start.
If he pitches again FRI & WED (4 days rest) in Ft Myers, he could make the seasons final start for ROC on Labor Day Monday (Ft Myers done Sunday)
Probably what they will do if the weather holds out????

Listening to Josh Whetzel. FB is between 90 and 93 with movement. He's also saying that the slider is the best he's seen. Very sharp, late movement. And, he's thrown a few changeups as well. The first inning single was not hit hard. The line out was a very soft liner.
