Twins’ Kyle Gibson Signs $28M Deal with Texas Rangers
The Texas Rangers have added another veteran pitcher to their starting rotation with the signing of right-hander and ex-Minnesota Twin Kyle Gibson.
The 32-year-old free agent got a $28 million, three-year contract and could make an extra $4 million in performance and roster bonuses. He spent the first seven years of his big league career with the Minnesota Twins.
Gibson goes into a rotation with fellow 30-something pitchers Mike Minor and Lance Lynn. Both threw 208 innings last season. Gibson was 13-7 in 34 games last season and started 29. He has averaged more than 172 innings over the past six seasons.
