Greenfield-Central graduate Kyle Gibson made his first spring training appearance for the Minnesota Twins Sunday vs. the Tampa Bay Rays.
Gibson threw two innings of one-hit ball, striking out two. He gave up a hit to start the fourth inning, then retired six in a row. Gibson reportedly threw as hard as 95 mph.
The University of Missouri product was the Twins’ first-round pick in 2009. Gibson is hoping land a spot in Minnesota’s starting rotation, and is fully recovered from the right elbow reconstructive surgery he underwent in September of 2011.
