Sometimes, all you have to do is stick around long enough in whatever you are doing.
Kyle Gibson has done as much and now he’s starting to thrive. After four sub-par seasons (and one par season in between), Gibson is in the midst of a breakout.
He’s only 32 innings and 6 starts into the season, but his ERA+ is 129 and his FIP suggests it’s not a mirage.
Gibson is giving up way fewer hits and home runs. He’s striking out way more batters (like, 3.5 more per 9 innings) and he’s walking slightly more in order to do such.
He’s got the build of someone who could be a late-bloomer and, so far this season, he looks like one. Good thing for Minnesota, too, because Gibson is about the only pitcher who has been a positive surprise so far.
Chicago White Sox
There’s sticking around long enough to eventually thrive and then there’s just being plain old. James Shields is the latter.
Shields’ numbers are a concern. He’s giving up fewer hits than he had been for the previous few seasons and a lot fewer home runs. His walks aren’t up, but his strikeouts are way down.
He’s been right around 7 or 8 strikeouts per 9 innings over his career, sometimes getting close to double-digits. This season, he’s at 4.8.
So once the ball does start leaving the yard, he’s in for a heap of trouble. I would not be in the least bit surprised if Shields fails to make it out of this season.
