Not a Normal set of circumstances for Ryan Gibbard

See also

Ryan Gibbard was a Normal CornBelter for about a month.

The CornBelters announced on Thursday that the Colorado Rockies have purchased Gibbard's contract. Normal won't be in use of his services, but Field Manager Brooks Carey knows how talented he is.

“Ryan is a great kid and is obviously talented. He’s the kind of player we’re always looking for. Congratulations to him,” said CornBelters Field Manager Brooks Carey.

Prior to signing with the Rockies, Gibbard spent two years in the Milwaukee Brewers' organization after being selected in the 14th round of the 2012 MLB June Amateur Draft from Lynn University.

In two years, Gibbard won five and lost 12. His ERA of 5.54 is deceptively bad. At Lynn, he was spectacular after transferring from Webber International. In his only season at Lynn, Gibbard went 7-2 with a 3.07 ERA with 84 strikeouts and only 19 walks. Those numbers are polar opposites when compared to his time with the Brewers. His 58 walks in 154 innings go hand in hand with the subpar professional numbers.

With experience comes control, and if he can regain the form that he showed in school, he should enjoy success with his new team.
