A big bodied, 6-foot-4, 220-pound righthander, Gipson throws a fastball that sits in the 88-93 mph range and tops out around 94 mph, though he did tick up his velocity late in the spring. Gipson doesn't have the most athleticism or the quickest arm, and there are some questions about whether or not he'll have a reliable out pitch, but he throws lots of strikes. During his junior season, Gipson posted a 4.90 ERA with impressive strikeout and walk rates, fanning 96 batters in 79 innings (10.9 per nine) with just 17 walks (1.9 per nine). While Gipson throws strikes, he does have a tendency to give up loud contact at times.
