Kyle Gibson, on the other hand, has been having quite a go of it this season. He is a definite to contact type of pitcher (GO/AO of 1.73) who doesn’t strike out many batters (27 in 56.1 innings) but doesn’t walk many either (17 all season). He could stand to give up a couple less hits here and there but really he has come into his own in his age 27 season. He may not have the splashy numbers expected of a former first-round pick but his WHIP is respectable (1.21) and he gives his team a chance to win every night.
