2009: Kyle Gibson, Pitcher, Missouri
As Twins fans are aware, Kyle Gibson is the first player on this list to have debuted with the Twins. Making his debut in 2013, the timetable was definitely delayed as the talented pitcher had to recover from Tommy John surgery.
To this point in the major leagues, Gibson has experience up and down success. His career 4.92 ERA across 41 starts was improved upon in 2014 (4.47) and would have been even better if his splits in wins and losses wasn’t so drastic. If there is a pitcher on the Twins 25 man roster that should be looked at to take a big step forward in 2015, look for Gibson to be it.
Now in his second true year at the big league level, look for the former Missouri Tiger to begin to put some things together.
