Gibault is a 6-foot-3 righthander with a big body and a big arm. Tulane toyed with the idea of starting him this year, but those plans were ultimately scrapped. He could get a chance to start in pro ball, but he'll need to improve his command of his secondary pitches to stick in a rotation. Gibault showed power stuff out of the bullpen, throwing his fastball 93-95 mph and touching 97. His slider, while inconsistent, flashes depth and bite, and he has a changeup, though never used it much as the Green Wave closer.
