Pitcher Kyle Gibson continues his rehab from Tommy John surrgery and will play in the Arizona Fall League, starting on Tuesday

Minnesota Twins prospect Kyle Gibson will pitch in the Arizona Fall League, which begins on Tuesday. Gibson is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery and is scheduled to pitch between 20 and 30 innings with the Peoria Javelinas. The work in Peoria would bring Gibson's season total to between 70 and 80 innings; he has pitched for Single-A Fort Myers, Triple-A Rochester and in the Florida instructional league this season.

The Twins selected Gibson in the first round of the 2009 draft out of Missouri. He had a strong 2010 campaign in the minors at various levels, but suffered from a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow in 2011. He underwent Tommy John surgery and has spent this season rehabbing in an attempt to get ready to join the Twins next year.

Other Twins joining Gibson in Peoria included outfielders Evan Bigley and Nate Roberts, catcher Chris Herrmann, and pitchers Caleb Thielbar, Michael Tonkin, and Logan Darnell.
