It wasn’t a great outing for Gibson in his last matchup against the Tampa Bay Rays, but it wasn’t a terrible outing either. He did give up four earned off of five hits in 6.1 innings of work, but 58 of his 85 pitches went for strikes. The earned runs came off of a home run and a couple extra-base hits.
It was good to see he only needed 85 pitches to make it through 6.1 innings while he struck out seven compared to only giving up one walk. He’s been hit-or-miss with the walks either giving up one or has given up five plus walks in his four outings this year.
He may have a 4.29 ERA, but his FIP is sitting at a solid 3.60.
Minnesota has been slumping hard as of late as they have gone just 1-5 in the last week. In that span their lineup is only slashing .218/.275/.333 while hitting only 16 extra-base hits and 18 RBI.
New York Yankees
Montgomery picked up his second win and second quality start of the season against the Toronto Blue Jays. He traveled six innings only giving up one earned off of four hits while striking out five and walking three. His walk-to-strikeout ratio hasn’t been impressive though as it sits at nine walks to 17 strikeouts.
For someone who posted a 8.34 K/9 a year ago, Montgomery has yet to eclipse five strikeouts in a game. Actually his five strikeouts just outdid his previous high of four strikeouts. If he can limit the walks at a tad better rate, he’ll continue being an upper-tier middle-of-the-pack pitcher, which isn’t a bad thing.
New York has hit a stride going 5-1 in the last week. Their lineup has been powering them through as they are slashing .297/.371/.564 while smashing 26 extra-base hits and 44 RBI.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: New York blows by Minnesota
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Yankees -1.5
A power-hitting team like New York should be able to stack up the runs against Gibson, while Montgomery should be able to hold his own against a struggling Minnesota lineup. Even if Montgomery gives up some runs, I don’t expect this one to be close.
