Big physical frame with athleticism. Regular effort on the delivery. Loose arm from a three-quarter arm slot. Gibson offered a four pitch mix with feel for all four pitches. Fastball was 90-92 early and tended to work to the arm side. Once he settled in he sat more in the 87-90 range and had some feel to both sides of the plate with a 1900-2100 spin rate and topped at 2214. Slider was 80-83 mph with tight late two-plane break. Gibson had an advanced feel for a cutter that got up to 88 mph early and settled in at 83-85 mph with 2300-2439 spin rate. Flashed a few changeups that displayed hard fade at 82-84 mph. This is a name that could certainly be rising up the draft boards as we get deeper into the spring and closer to the draft.

We saw Gibson early on in the Menchville scrimmage and he didn't appear to be dialed in, as many pitchers in scrimmages aren't. But he looked much better today. Velocity picked up and was 85-88 mph early touching 89 mph a few times. Had above average command of the fastball, but featured the breaking balls a little bit more today. Showed two breakers, a slider with armspeed at 80-82 mph that had a tight late break, and a curveball at 74-76 mph that had a little more up and down to it with 11/5 shape. Had solid feel for both pitches and leaned on the two offspeed pitches very heavily. Had to work out of some tough situations, as he didn't get a ton of defensive help on the night, but used the offspeed to put hitters away without running the pitch count up.

Strong physical frame standing around 6-foot-4 and still has some projection left to it. Struggle with command a little in the first, especially with secondary pitches, but settled in for a quick second inning. Fastball had carry through the zone and sat 84-86 on the day touching 87 a few times. Showed solid arm speed on his offspeed pitches with a hard changeup at 77-79 that got a few hitters out front. Curveball seemed to have the better shape versus the slider. Curveball showed a hard 11/5 break at 72-74 mph with some swing and miss potential, but didn't appear to have feel for it today. Slider sat around 75 mph and had a more side to side shape.
