News: Gibson (9-8) was great on Tuesday, giving up just two hits and two walks while striking out seven over seven scoreless innings against the Royals. Impact: Gibson missed his last outing due to lower back stiffness, but it's safe to say after Tuesday's performance that the back is no longer an issue. He faced the minimum through the first four innings, and needed just 95 pitches (66 strikes) to get through seven. The Royals only got a base runner to second base twice on the night. He'll travel to Chicago to take on the White Sox on Sunday in his next scheduled start.(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson (back) has been confirmed as Tuesday's starter against the Royals. Impact: The Twins were forced to skip Gibson the last time through the rotation due to back stiffness, but the training staff gave him the green light to return following a successful bullpen session Saturday. He'll oppose right-hander James Shields.(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson (back) will throw a bullpen session Saturday and if all goes well, he'll start Tuesday against the Royals, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports. Impact: He has been encouraged by his progress in trying to get over the stiff back that plagued him earlier in the week, and all signs point to him starting the Twins' first game next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson (back) was encouraged by his activity Friday and is confident he will return to the Twins' rotation Tuesday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: He had a 120-foot long toss session and threw 10-15 pitches in the bullpen Friday, and while he won't make his scheduled start Saturday, he won't be pushed back a full five days, as the Twins have an opening in the rotation Tuesday in Kansas City.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Ron Gardenhire indicated that it's unlikely Gibson (back stiffness) will be ready to go for Saturday's scheduled start against the White Sox, Tyler Mason of FOX Sports North reports. Impact: The Twins haven't made an official call on Saturday's starter, but given the pessimistic news regarding Gibson, look for the team to turn to Triple-A arm Logan Darnell to fill the void. If the team indeed elects to go that route for Saturday's start, Gibson could be placed on the disabled list to facilitate Darnell's call-up.(RotoWire, )

News: The Twins are hopeful Gibson (back stiffness) will be able to take the mound Saturday vs. the White Sox, FOX Sports North's Tyler Mason reports. Impact: The Twins are skipping Gibson on Wednesday to give him some time to heal up from the back woes, but if he's not ready to go by Sunday, a trip to the DL will have to be considered. The Twins will try to get by with long reliever Anthony Swarzak making a spot start for Gibson on Wednesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson has been scratched from Wednesday's start against Cleveland due to lower back stiffness. Impact: Gibson, 8-8 with a 4.19 ERA, will be replaced by Anthony Swarzak. Manager Ron Gardenhire says team doctors told him Gibson's back felt tight after throwing in the bullpen and then it locked up.(STATS, 2:49am)
Tue. July 22, 2014
News: Gibson is dealing with a stiff back and will not make his scheduled start Wednesday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: Anthony Swarzak will get the spot start in Gibson's place against the Indians. It's possible, given the holes in Minnesota's rotation, that Gibson could start Saturday against the White Sox, instead of next Tuesday, which is his next scheduled start.(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson mostly struggled through 6.1 innings Friday night, allowing six earned runs, nine hits and a walk while striking out just one in a 6-2 loss to the Rays. Impact: The roller coaster ride continues for Gibson here in 2014, as the Twins' right-hander has been close to completely unpredictable from start-to-start this season. Though inconsistent results can often be the case for a pitcher that relies so heavily on forcing weak contact, Gibson has taken things to the extreme. Over his 19 starts, six have been scoreless efforts of six or more innings while seven other outings have seen him surrender at least five earned runs. All in all, Gibson is little more than a middling, back-of-the-rotation starter at this point and difficult to recommend outside of AL-only formats.(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson was impressive in Wednesday's 8-1 win at Seattle, allowing seven hits over six shutout innings. Impact: Gibson is 4-2 with a 3.23 ERA over his last seven starts.(STATS, 6:47pm)
