Kyle Gibson is a rookie starting pitcher for the Minnesota Twins. Gibson, an Indiana native, was the 22nd pick in the 2009 MLB Draft. In 2011, Gibson was ranked by Baseball America as the sport’s #34 ranked prospect. During his 2011 minor league season, Gibson experienced a sore elbow, which later required Tommy John surgery, forcing him to miss most of 2012.

Gibson made his first MLB start last month. Entering Tuesday’s game with the Los Angeles Angels, the Missouri alum has posted a 2-2 record, with a 6.45 ERA.

Last Monday, during the MLB All-Star break, Gibson took part in his first professional autograph appearance. Above is iFolloSports.com original video of Gibson signing his signature for a large group of fans at Fan HQ Sports Apparel And Collectables, in the Twin Cities suburb of Minnetonka, Minnesota. Gibson, who was one of the Twins top minor league players, signed for an hour and also posed for pictures prior to the event.
