Twins Sign First-Round Pick Kyle Gibson
Gibson was able to secure a $1.8 million bonus that's significantly more than the slot recommendation for the No. 22 pick and the Twins were able to sign a consensus top-10 talent who slipped to them because of an injury that has since healed. Definitely a win-win situation, which along with Gibson's improved health and Pat Neshek-like interest in interacting with fans, plus the Twins signing all of their other picks from the first 10 rounds, makes for a very successful draft. As opposed to this mess.
