Know Thine Enemy: Lone Star Ball

How is Kyle Gibson doing in his second year since leaving the Twins? Actually, he’s doing amazingly well. In 6 starts (3-0) he has a 2.16 ERA (2.57 FIP), and hasn’t given up a single HR in about 33 innings pitched. He’s also walking fewer batters (2.97 BB/9) than last season (4 BB/9).

The numbers suggest he’s been somewhat lucky, though, as his xFIP is 3.95, which is close to his career mark of 4.11.
