"a slider that was christened by Baseball America in January (http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/prospects/rankings/organization-top-10-prospects/2012/2612823.html) as the “best” slider in the Twins’ system"

Isn't that a bit like winning silver in the Special Olympics?

I'm assuming Liriano being at the Major League level meant Gibson's wasn't being compared against it?

What kind of rise is he getting on the 4 seam heater?

Very positive. a 2 mph increase in his FB makes a huge difference, and could vault his ceiling to a number 1 IMO. Especially if his slider and change are plus pitches. He would then have a plus plus FB and 2 plus secondary pitches. I can't wait to see him in the MLB.

Regardless of how we all feel he should be used next year, this is encouraging news.

Depends on your definition of a #1. He certainly could be a Twins #1. Which is good enough news for me.

Most people consider the bolded portion above the definition of a #1 pitcher. The additional part of the definition that we don't know yet is health.
