Two-way prospect whose hitting has jumped ahead of his pitching, despite a low-to-mid-90s fastball off the bump. Gilbert showed a simple, up-the-middle approach and very good hand speed. With compact strength, he also has good pop to his pull side. As a 5-foot-10 left-handed hitter, think Cole Calhoun (D-Backs/Angels). An average runner, he also showed plus arm strength with below average accuracy from the outfield. He could also see significant time on the mound, especially if four-game weekend series return this spring to college baseball.

Gilbert was dominant in the MN State Tournament; leading Stillwater to the Class 4A State Championship with his bat, defense in the outfield, and two dominant starts on the mound. In his first outing; Gilbert was consistently 90-93 mph from the left-side, primarily 93, while touching one 94 and one 95. The quick twitch athlete also shows ability in the field covering considerable ground in the outfield, and is also a threat offensively with surprising pop in the bat to the pull side of the field, and looks capable of possibly being a 2-way threat at Oregon State.
