The Twins have promoted pitching prospect Kyle Gibson to the Majors, per Dustin Morse on Twitter. He will make his debut on Saturday against the Royals at Target Field. The Twins also optioned Pedro Hernandez to Triple-A Rochester.

With Rochester, Gibson posted a 3.01 ERA over 15 starts spanning 92.2 innings. He averaged nearly three strikeouts for every walk and was very stingy with allowing home runs. The 25-year-old entered the season rated as Baseball America’s #68 overall prospect.

    Gibson is 25 and seems to have good control. I doubt that he will be in awe of major league hitters. I wish him a decent career.

    Those Fort Myers uniforms are HIDEOUS. I am sure there are better adjectives but damn they are awful…

      It’s Single-A, I don’t think anyone is THAT concerned about how they look.
