Minnesota Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson continues to make progress in his return from Tommy John surgery.
Gibson threw his first post-surgery bullpen session on June 4 in Fort Myers, and on Monday the former first-round pick tweeted, "Quality long toss today back to 190' and it felt great! 30 pitches at 75% tom. Preparing for 1 inning July 10th in GCL!"
Gibson, 24, underwent surgery last September, and he hasn't pitched in a game in 11 months. If all goes well on July 10 it's likely Gibson will continue to stretch out his innings load and move up the ladder from the Gulf Coast League.
