2021 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

June 19, 2021
Gilbert completed 5.2 innings against the Rays on Saturday, giving up four runs on six hits and no walks while striking out seven in a no-decision.
ANALYSIS
Gilbert entered the contest having yielded only six earned runs over his previous 21.2 innings. He wasn't quite as effective against Tampa Bay, though the right-hander did manage to tie his season high with seven strikeouts while inducing 14 swings-and-misses. The rookie's campaign got off to a rough start with two straight losses, but he has avoided falling into the loss column in each of his past five outings. Gilbert will carry a 4.50 ERA into his next start, which is tentatively scheduled to come on the road against the White Sox next Saturday.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
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.
