Orioles' Kyle Gibson: Doing well so far
Gibson has allowed two earned runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out six over nine Grapefruit League innings.
Gibson has made three appearances in spring training, and he's performing just fine. The veteran right-hander signed a one-year deal with the Orioles in December, and he should be a lock for the rotation, especially given his encouraging outings so far. He struggled to a 5.05 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 144:48 K:BB across 167.2 innings with the Phillies last season, and at 35 years old, it's tough to imagine a significant improvement in his numbers this year....

Orioles' Kyle Gibson: Signs with Orioles
Gibson signed a one-year deal with the Orioles on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Gibson has been eating innings at the big-league level for a full decade, but how much remains in the tank ahead of his age-35 season is unclear. His 5.05 ERA last season means he's finished above 5.00 in that category in two of the last three seasons, though he did post a 3.71 ERA in 2021 and hasn't seen a big drop in velocity. His 20.1 percent strikeout rate in 2022 was below average as usual, though allowing plenty of contact isn't quite as dangerous as it used to be in Baltimore now that the left-field fence has been pushed back. The veteran righty should have a good shot at a spot near the back of the Orioles' rotation to open the year, but his age means the bottom could fall out at any time without much warning....

Phillies' Kyle Gibson: Shelled for seven runs
Gibson (10-8) took the loss Saturday, allowing seven runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings against the Nationals. He struck out seven.
Gibson got himself into trouble early in this one, walking the leadoff hitter on four straight pitches in the bottom of the first before allowing an RBI single to Luis Garcia later in the inning. He would then go on to allow five straight hits with two outs in the second, including a solo shot to Luke Voit to put the Phillies in a 6-1 hole. Gibson has now allowed five or more runs in three consecutive starts while allowing seven runs in three of his last six.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Kyle Gibson: Fans nine in shaky outing
Gibson yielded five runs on seven hits and two walks over five frames against Atlanta on Sunday. He struck out nine and did not factor in the decision.
Surprisingly, Gibson was in line for the victory when he left the game, but Atlanta would ultimately win in extras. He's been tagged with 24 runs over his last five starts, raising his season ERA from 4.08 to 4.84 during that span. The 34-year-old righty allowed two runs in the first inning Sunday and later coughed up a two-run shot to Dansby Swanson in the fourth. Gibson is lined up to make his final start of the regular season in Washington.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Kyle Gibson: Hit hard in loss
Gibson (10-7) took the loss Tuesday against Toronto, allowing seven runs on 12 hits and a walk while striking out three in five innings.
Toronto's lineup got to Gibson early and often, scoring runs in four of his five frames. Five of the hits against him went for extra bases and 13 of the 27 batters he faced reached safely. It's been a disastrous September for Gibson, as he's posted a 9.68 ERA, 2.15 WHIP and 14:6 K:BB in 17.2 innings across four starts and he's seen his ERA rise from 4.08 to 4.71.... See More ...

Phillies' Kyle Gibson: Earns 10th victory
Gibson (10-6) earned the win Wednesday, allowing one run on six hits with seven strikeouts over six innings against Miami.
After allowing four singles and a run in the bottom of the first inning, Gibson settled in nicely. He allowed just three hits and did not surrender a walk or a run over the next five innings to earn his 15th quality start and position himself to earn his 10th win. After allowing 11 earned runs over 6.2 innings in his last two starts, the effort Wednesday was a great sign for the veteran. He'll take a 4.45 ERA into his next start.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Kyle Gibson: Allows two homers
Gibson did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing four runs on nine hits and one walk over five innings against the Marlins. He struck out two.
Gibson allowed a third-inning solo homer from Lewin Diaz followed by an RBI double and RBI single before surrendering another solo home run to Joey Wendle in the fifth. The righty has now given up 11 runs in his last two starts following a stretch of nine games with a quality 2.80 ERA over 54.2 innings. The 34-year-old has allowed five home runs over his last five outings.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Kyle Gibson: Rocked for seven runs
Gibson (9-6) took the loss Friday, allowing seven runs on five hits and four walks over 1.2 innings in a 13-1 loss to the Giants. He struck out two.
After a 40-pitch first inning, Gibson handed out a couple more free passes in the second before Joc Pederson cashed in with a three-run homer. In total, Gibson needed 65 pitches to record five outs. He had been on a nice run coming into Friday's game, posting a 2.41 ERA over his previous six starts, but this was a reminder of the inconsistency and downside we've seen with Gibson throughout his career....

Gibson surrendered a double to Bligh Madris, and the remaining hits he allowed were singles. The righty has pitched six innings or more in five of his last six starts. The 34-year-old has also been racking up strikeouts with 34 over 37.1 innings during that span.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Kyle Gibson: Chased early Sunday
Gibson allowed four runs (two earned) on eight hits and three walks over 4.1 innings against the Mets on Sunday. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.
Gibson wasn't very efficient in Philadelphia's loss on Sunday, needing 105 pitches to record just 13 outs. Two runs scored against him on an error in the second inning before he allowed another run in each of the third and fourth frames. Gibson has been charged with fewer than four earned runs in seven of his last eight starts, posting a 3.21 ERA during that span. The veteran righty is lined up to face the Pirates at home next week.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Kyle Gibson: Fans 11 in win
Gibson (8-5) earned the victory Tuesday in Cincinnati, striking out 11 in six innings while allowing three runs on six hits.
Gibson struck out only 11 batters in his previous four starts combined, spanning 24.1 innings, but managed to punch out that many in just six innings Tuesday. Eleven of the 23 batters he faced were retired on strikes. The last time he struck out that many batters in a game was May 8, 2019, as a member of the Twins. He's recorded a quality start in six of his last seven outings, posting a 3.12 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 32:9 K:BB in 43.1 innings in that span.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Kyle Gibson: Tough-luck loss
Gibson (7-5) allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out three across six innings to take the loss Thursday against the Marlins.
Gibson allowed only one run through 5.2 innings, though he fell apart late in the outing after surrendering two singles and a double -- he also threw a wild pitch -- to take his fifth loss of the season. The effort marked his third consecutive quality start, though he's also allowed five or more earned runs in three of his last eight starts. Gibson now owns a 4.29 ERA and 91:34 K:BB across 121.2 frames on the campaign.... See More ... See Less
