News: Gibson pitched just 5.1 innings Tuesday against the Indians, allowing five runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four batters in the no-decision. Impact: All year long Gibson has battled inconsistency, occasionally twirling gems, but many times tossing in some duds. Gibson now has a 4.13 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and a mediocre 78:40 K:BB ratio in 139.1 innings this year. His next start is scheduled for Sunday at home against the Tigers.(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson gave up five runs over 5.1 innings with four strikeouts and one walk in Tuesday's loss to Cleveland. Impact: Gibson was staked to a five-run lead in the first inning and couldn't deliver. He continued a pattern of either being great or terrible in his starts. He's 1-6 with a 12.68 ERA when he goes less than five innings (24 starts) and 10-3 with a 1.88 ERA when he goes more than five innings (16 starts).(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson held the Astros to one run over 7.2 innings Wednesday, picking up his 11th victory of the season. Impact: Manager Ron Gardenhire likely would have been willing to give Gibson a shot at spinning a complete game, but a pair of lightly hit singles took a shutout off the table and brought his pitch count over 100. That being said, Gibson still delivered one of his more impressive outings of the season, pushing his season ERA below 4.00 in the process. Gibson's poor strikeout rate (4.9 K/9 IP) limits his utility in the fantasy game, but he's been able to yield acceptable results due to a relatively low walk rate (2.62 BB/9) and a 53.8 percent ground-ball rate -- good for 13th-best among qualifying starters.(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson (10-9) suffered the loss on Friday against the Athletics as he gave up six runs (five earned) on five hits in five innings, while giving away five free passes. Impact: It was a five-fecta for Gibson on Friday, which unfortunately was not a good thing for the young pitcher. The walks killed Gibson as he set the stage for Coco Crisp's bases-clearing triple. Gibson, who sees his ERA bump up to 4.13, next takes the mound on Wednesday against the Astros.(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson earned his 10th win in a 16-3 road victory over the White Sox on Sunday. Impact: Gibson's season continues to be an up-and-down affair. He's given up three or more runs in four of his last seven starts but has also limited opponents to two or fewer in the three other outings.(STATS, 5:24pm)
