Headed for higher ground? That's what BP thinks in its latest installment of free agent rankings.

35. Kyle Gibson
Position (bats): RHP
Age (as of 4/1/20): 32
2019 team: Twins

Observation: At his best, Gibson is an innings-eating mid-rotation guy capable of striking out enough batters to get by while keeping a majority of balls in play on the ground. At his worst, Gibson is extremely hittable and the contact generated is hard and/or over the fence. It was the latter in 2019, and while his numbers were BABIP-fueled, the .331 mark against him was more in line with his career figure (.313) than his 2018 breakout in which he was worth 2.5 WARP while allowing a .285 BABIP. Gibson has made at least 25 starts in each of the last six seasons.

Prediction: The Rockies need rotation help behind German Márquez and arguably the best defensive left side of the infield in baseball. Bringing in Gibson would seem to make sense for them.

In a night of double-digit scores moire often than not, a great pitchers's battle between Gibson and Keller which Gibson won. Keller pitched scoreless ball through seven innings, Gibson did same through eight. His catcher cranked a homer in the bottom of the 8th to give him the W. In his last seven starts, Gibson has won five with a 2.95 ERA and 1.05 WHIP.

Agreed. And his velocity went up only one mph. Batters taking their mighty (upper)cuts.

Big jump in K rate for a 30 year old, no?
