I like Kyle Gibson. He's an earnest young man with talent throwing a baseball. As all of the talking heads have pointed out, he's had a number of great starts, but his record is marred by a high number of stinkers. I would submit that Murphy's Law has bit him pretty hard in some of his bad starts, but all in all he has earned a place in the 2015 rotation and has a chance to put up pretty good numbers in his first full season as a Major League starting pitcher.
There was a push among the fans last year to elevate Gibson, sooner rather than later. The Twins waited until midseason, gave him only 10 starts and then basically shut him down. I thought the club was overcautious with an important commodity, but in hindsight it looks like they handled Gibson pretty well.
There is every reason to believe that he can improve his overall mark next year and be a solid pitcher for years to come. I still think there is a chance that he can develop into a #1 starter or at least a 1A. Maybe the "go slow" approach is the right one for Meyer and May.
