Yovani Gallardo charged with loss

Yovani Gallardo (5-9) was charged with the loss Sunday as the Rays blanked Seattle 3-0. He pitched 6 1/3 innings allowing three earned runs on five hits while walking three and striking out six.

Fantasy Impact

Gallardo was vanquished by the long ball, surrendering a leadoff homer to Kevin Kiermaier to start the game, and a two-run shot in the seventh inning to light-hitting Adeiny Hechavarria. The veteran right-hander from Michoacan, Mexico now sports an ugly 5.75 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. Fantasy owners should tread lightly before inserting him into their lineups. Gallardo is next scheduled to start on Saturday against New York in Yankee Stadium.

Yovani Gallardo hit hard on Monday

Yovani Gallardo (5-8) was feckless Monday as he was pounded early and often in Seattle's loss to the Orioles Monday evening. Gallardo gave up eight earned runs on nine hits while walking one and striking out four over four innings.

Fantasy Impact

Gallardo's first pitch, a 91 mph fastball lined into the right field bleachers by Tim Beckham for a home run, was a harbinger of things to come. Of the eight hits yielded by the 31-year-old righty, five went for extra-bases, including a grand slam by Manny Machado in the second frame. He was mercifully taken out the game after throwing 99 pitches, and giving up a double to Adam Jones to start the fifth inning. Gallardo actually had success when he was relegated to the bullpen in late June, compiling a 1-0 record with a 0.79 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and earning one save in four relief appearances over 11.1 innings. Since regaining his role in the rotation on July 23, he has not made it into the sixth inning in any of his four starts. Gallardo now sports a doleful 5.84 ERA and 1.51 WHIP on the year. His renowned days as a starter in Milwaukee are now a distant sight in the rear-view mirror.

Yovani Gallardo earns fifth win of season against the Mets

Yovani Gallardo allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out two through 5.2 innings Saturday to earn his fifth win of the season against New York.

Fantasy Impact

Gallardo (5-7) making his second start since being reinserted from the bullpen into the starting rotation, danced in and out of trouble, leaving a couple of base runners in the fifth and sixth innings before being pulled in favor of reliever Tony Zych. His 5.34 ERA and 1.47 WHIP make him a risky play in fantasy lineups. Gallardo's next start is scheduled for Thursday against the Royals.

Yovani Gallardo pitches five innings in a no-decision

Yovani Gallardo (4-7) allowed three earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out five batters through five innings during Seattle's loss to New York on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Gallardo gave up the three runs on three solo homers, a lead off blast by Brett Gardner in the first inning, and two by Didi Gregorius in the second and fourth. Despite getting in and out of trouble all game, he was in line for the win. Unfortunately the bullpen coughed up the lead in the next inning. Gallardo's next start is scheduled to be against the Mets next weekend.

Yovani Gallardo will start for Mariners

Yovani Gallardo will start on Sunday for Seattle against Yankees' left-hander Caleb Smith.

Fantasy Impact

This will be Gallardo's first start since being relegated to the bullpen on June 21st. He has pitched well in his four appearances as a reliever giving up only one earned run and five hits in 11.1 innings, while striking out eight batters and walking five (0.79 ERA; 0.88 WHIP).
