Kyle Gibson, a first round pick in 2009, won his Major League debut Saturday against the Royals.  He pitched six solid innings, giving up eight hits and two earned runs while striking out five batters. 

His second MLB start comes Thursday afternoon at home against the New York Yankees.

And let’s not forget about Nick Tepesch.  He was an afterthought as a 14th round selection of the Texas Rangers in 2010, but won the fifth spot in the Rangers rotation and has not relinquished it to this point:

13) The only position player Mizzou has in the MLB is Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler.

Kinsler has battled injury this season (ribs, oblique) but is back in the starting lineup after missing a month from the middle of May to the middle of June.
