Righthander Kyle Gibson is just moving down the street, but it's a sign of progress in his return from Tommy John surgery.
Gibson, the Twins' first-round pick in 2009, is joining Class A Fort Myers this week as he continues to work his way back. In nine games (seven starts) for the Twins' rookie team in the Gulf Coast League, Gibson posted a 2.45 ERA with four walks and 16 strikeouts in 142/3 innings.
He will follow Carl Pavano on Sunday and throw around 50 pitches.
"He's thrown the ball well," said Jim Rantz, the Twins director of minor leagues. "He's even throwing a little harder than he did before he was hurt."
