Twins, Gibson Still Far Apart In Negotiations

The Twins and first round pick Kyle Gibson are "about a million dollars apart in their negotiations," according to ESPN's Keith Law. Gibson suffered a stress fracture in his pitching arm right before the draft, but the bone has healed and he's been throwing for about three weeks now.

Selected 22nd overall, Gibson was considered a potential top ten pick before his injury. MLB's recommended slot bonus for the 22nd overall pick is roughy $1.29MM, and a seven figure gap in negotiations is pretty significant with less than three days until the signing deadline.
