2024 Fantasy Outlook
Gilbert has been a rather consistent fantasy pitcher over his first three seasons when you account for the typical variability of starting pitching. His last two full seasons have had similar looks to them by innings pitched as well as peripherals even if the process to those outcomes changed. Gilbert added a splitter to his repertoire last winter and loved it so much that it became both his third pitch and replaced the straight change he threw. It was his whiffiest pitch and one of three offerings which generated at least a 30% whiff rate. Add that to a fastball with an 18% whiff rate and it is easy to see how Gilbert is 26-13 over the past two seasons with one of the better ERAs in the league. Gilbert has a little trouble with the long ball, but his stinginess with walks offsets some of that damage. He has yet to miss a start as a big league pitcher, so just typing that feels like we're cursing him for 2024. Read Past Outlooks

April 10, 2024
Gilbert didn't factor into the decision Wednesday against the Blue Jays, allowing one run on five hits and one walk over 7.2 innings. He struck out eight.
ANALYSIS
Gilbert was excellent Wednesday, holding the Blue Jays scoreless through six innings before allowing a lone run on a Vladimir Guerrero homer in the seventh. The 26-year-old Gilbert has struck out 23 batters through his first three starts, ranked second in the league in the early going. While Gilbert has yet to earn a win this year, he's posted an impressive 2.66 ERA with a 0.84 WHIP through his first 20.1 innings. Gilbert currently lines up for a home matchup with the Reds in his next outing.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
No ongoing trade discussions
PSeattle Mariners
August 1, 2023
Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports the Mariners aren't currently involved in any trade discussions on Gilbert.
ANALYSIS
The 26-year-old's name has surfaced a few times in trade rumors over the past few weeks, but Seattle was never going to part with him lightly given he's entering his first season of arbitration eligibility next year. Gilbert remains a key rotation piece for the Mariners and has a 3.83 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 121:21 K:BB over 124.2 innings this year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2021
2020
The underlying stats of 2021 gave us enough positive signs that 2022 could be a big year for the sophomore hurler, and that is precisely what we saw from the young righty. Gilbert pitched with poise and polish normally not seen in a 25-year old pitcher as he commanded his fastball and flung five different pitches at hitters preferring to keep them off-balance over always pursuing the strikeout. His four-seam fastball has an above-average whiff rate due to the combination of velocity and extension on the pitch while none of his other offerings possess even an average whiff rate. His fastball command is what makes or breaks the approach and he will go places if he continues to pitch as he did in 2022. The flyball-heavy results leave him somewhat prone to the long ball and it will be interesting to see how the new balanced schedule impacts him as he had a 2.69 ERA against the bottom feeders of the AL West and a 3.45 ERA against the rest of the league. We also do not know how the near 70 inning increase in workload will impact him as it was a significant increase over his previous professional seasons.
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.
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.
