Mizzou in the Minors: Kyle Gibson

Twins' Gibson to undergo Tommy John surgery (

Kyle Gibson, the Twins' top pitching prospect who was diagnosed with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament earlier this month, will undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow on Wednesday.

The Twins were hopeful Gibson could rehab his injury in Fort Myers, Fla., without surgery, but general manager Bill Smith said Gibson will instead have the surgery performed by Dr. David Altchek in New York. The recovery time is usually about 12 months.
