Kyle Gibson has had a hard time making a positive impact for the Minnesota Twins.

While the pitching rotation has looked like a bright spot for the 2017 season, Kyle Gibson has yet to be able to help the Twins at all. After starting 25 games in 2016, the Twins had high hopes for Gibson coming into the new campaign.

Gibson has the worst ERA in the pitching rotation for the Minnesota Twins with 9.00. He has started 4 games thus far and is 0-3.

In 4 starts, Kyle Gibson has 12 strikeouts while walking 7 batters and giving up 5 home-runs.

Minnesota Twins’ fans would hope that all of their pitchers follow in the footsteps of Ervin Santana, but that has not been the case for Gibson. The stats are atrocious, but it’s the fact that he cannot win a game for the Twins that has fans so angry.

Is it time to give another starting pitcher a shot? Possibly, only time will tell. As for right now, Minnesota Twins’ fans can just hope the offense can put up a rare 15-run game when Kyle Gibson is pitching.
