2022 Fantasy Outlook
Gilbert came out of a tiny pitching factory school in DeLand, Florida, which had already given us both Corey Kluber and Jacob deGrom, and began his efforts to make a name for himself. He made all of one start in Triple-A before coming up to stay in the big leagues and was as impressive as one could realistically expect in his rookie season. His high flyball rate led to more homers than we like to see from starters, but a 19.9 K-BB% as a rookie was impressive. He held the league to a .239 average and had a 1.17 WHIP, but the ERA was higher than expected. In fact, only seven other pitchers have ever posted an ERA over 4.00 with supporting stats such as the ones Gilbert had last season. Two of them also happened in 2021: Aaron Nola and Yu Darvish. Gilbert's big jump in workload increase is something to consider, not to mention there will be additional growing pains in that division. Read Past Outlooks

May 11, 2022
Gilbert (4-1) allowed four earned runs on three hits and three walks while striking out nine across five innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Phillies.
ANALYSIS
Gilbert had little trouble getting through the first three innings, as he allowed only two baserunners and struck out five. However, he allowed a grand slam to Rhys Hoskins in the fourth, souring his outing. However, Gilbert induced 14 swinging strikes on 95 total pitches to punch out a season-best nine batters. Gilbert has allowed seven earned runs across his last 10 innings, but he still has a 2.13 ERA with 42:14 K:BB across 38 frames on the season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
Gilbert's stock has been steadily trending up over the past couple years, and that trend continued in 2020 at the Mariners' alternate training site. The 6-foot-6, 225-pound righty's fastball is one of the most effective pitches in the minors. It sits in the mid-90s (touches 97) and plays like a 70-grade pitch due to command, extension and riding life. If he can locate that pitch against big-league hitters, he will be successful. His changeup, curveball and slider all have above-average to plus potential, but they will play up even more than that due to the quality of his fastball. His fastball and changeup, specifically, have noticeably improved over the past calendar year. While he is more of a bat misser than a weak contact inducer, once he gets ahead in the count, hitters struggle to square stuff up because they have to be ready for the cheese. He should join Seattle's rotation early this season.
If we just listed Gilbert's arsenal, the hype would be moderate, but his statistical output in his first pro season led to significant excitement in dynasty leagues. The 6-foot-6 righty's low-to-mid-90s fastball plays up as a plus pitch due to excellent extension, but that is his lone 60-grade pitch. He throws two breaking balls that are solid and a changeup that is usable, but even if he developed plus command, Gilbert's ceiling is capped as a mid-rotation starter. He has the frame (225 pounds) to eat innings, and after logging nine starts at Double-A, he could make his big-league debut this summer if he continues to face little resistance in the minors. A No. 3 starter who can throw 180-plus innings is a valuable commodity in redraft leagues, but time and again prospects with that profile end up falling short of that projection for one reason or another. This is a good time to cash him out.
