Kyle Gibson has had an up-and-down first full season for the Twins and now he may wind up on the disabled list with a back injury.
Gibson was scratched from Wednesday’s scheduled start with lower back stiffness and the Twins initially said he’d likely be able to start Saturday instead, but now he’s said to be “doubtful” for that game as well.
Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports that Triple-A left-hander Logan Darnell is on call if needed to fill in Saturday for Gibson, who has a 4.19 ERA in 19 starts five years after being the Twins’ first-round draft pick.
