Kyle Gibson update
I’m still trying to figure out the balance. Do I post draft notes on Twitter, then here? Or here, then Twitter? In this case, the update came first on Twitter @JonathanMayoB3.
It seems that Missouri right-hander Kyle Gibson has paid a visit to the Cincinnati Reds for a meeting/workout/medical exam. Two weeks ago this wouldn’t seem like much as Gibson was a sure-fire top 10 pick and might not have gotten to the Reds at 10. But his velocity dropped over his last 2 starts and the word was he had some forearm tightness. And that sets off alarms because it’s often a precursor to elbow trouble.
No word yet what the results of said meeting/exam were, but suffice to say that Gibson is under consideration for Cincy at No. 8.
