Just saw this (Gibson striking out 7 in 3 hitless innings)! Though it was against rookie league players. Either way, you can only call it a good sign. He'll be moved up soon I'd imagine.
Anyone know about Gibson's velcoity before and after the surgery? Is he throwing as hard?
Well he's been a bust so far yeah. He had a mediocre year in 2010, but he strikes out like crazy. He's not looking like a major-league hitter. Maybe he'll bloom late, who knows.
To really answer your question, I checked out his baseballcube.com scouting report and, apparently, at some point he had good speed, power, and decent hitting ability. Haven't seen any of that yet really. And while he has shown inconsistent ability to run and hit for power, he really hasn't hit or ran well ever.
A note on Wimmers and Gibson:
I would imagine it's better to undergo TJ surgery early in one's professional career. That way your body is stronger and you have more time to adapt. Liriano obviously wasn't the same, but his mechanics had to be changed too. I don't think they altered Strasburg's mechanics at all (though I could be wrong) and he's definitely made a comeback. Gibson had good mechanics before surgery so nothing needs to be changed. I read Wimmers has pretty decent mechanics as well.
Anyway, after seeing Gibson's dominating last three outings (5.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 11 K, 91-94mph) combined with Strasburg's recovery - I'm pretty optimistic for Wimmers. Sure Liriano never returned to his phenomenal form in a consistent way, but his mechanics were terrible. They had to work with him to totally change his delivery. Gibson and Wimmers are both young and have good form, something I think will help them return to live up to their hype.
So having Wimmers undergo TJ surgery isn't that bad. It's better to have it happen now when he's still young and in the minors. Hopefully he and Gibson return strong like I think they will and become solid pitchers on our future team that includes Sano, Arcia, Hicks and... idk.. Buxton?
(Note: I'm not saying we don't need more young elite arms - we do.)
