Gibson 8/30

Sorry about the delay. Newborn child doing wonders for a consistent sleep schedule and free time :\.
Command was sub par (59.3%), particularly with his 4 seam. Got good swing and strike rates, especially on his slider, and even his 2 seam, but wasn't efficient. Can't complain too much about 4 hits over 5 innings, Though three walks does put his WHIP at 1.4. Not terrible, but you'd like better. One earned run against a potent Baltimore line up does make it easier to stomach. On the other hand, 6Ks through 5 innings gives him 35 strike outs in his last 7 outings for a 7.56 K/9 rate.

A couple things of note. In the post game interviews Gibson did talk about some improvement in his curveball, and also the decision to use his changeup more against righties. Link down below.
