Yovani Gallardo relegated to pen

Yovani Gallardo was officially removed from the starting rotation on Tuesday and will instead be used in the bullpen.

Fantasy Impact

Gallardo's poor performance as a starter has finally driven him from the rotation to a role in the bullpen. The veteran right-hander was actually effective when used in long- relief earlier in the year, recording a 1-0 record in four appearances, while surrendering only one run on five hits over 11 1/3 innings. His exemplary slash line of .132/.233/.237 allowed in relief was demonstrably better than his regrettable .284/.359/.498 relinquished to opposing batters as a starter. Mike Leake, who was supposed to start on Wednesday, will have his start pushed to Friday against the Angels in place of Gallardo. Andrew Moore will start on Wednesday against the Astros.

Yovani Gallardo involved in no-decision

Yovani Gallardo surrendered two runs on five hits over three innings in Seattle's 7-6 win over the Athletics Saturday night. He struck out two and walked two, and did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Gallardo continues to display his inefficiency as a starter, needing a whopping 80 pitches to get through three innings of work. In fact, in his 22 starts this year, the veteran right-hander has lasted seven innings only once. To make matters worse, his proclivity to give up the long ball was also evident Saturday, as he coughed up two more gopher balls to opposing hitters. He has an unpalatable 1.7 HR/9 on the year, and has yielded at least one homer in seven of his last eight games. Gallardo's true role should be in long-relief, where earlier in the year he was very successful, allowing opposing batters to hit a meager .132/.233/.237 over 11 1/3 innings.

Yovani Gallardo suffers another loss

Yovani Gallardo (5-10) was credited with the loss on Saturday after surrendering four runs on four hits over 5.2 innings in Seattle's 6-3 defeat to the Yankees. He walked five and struck out four.

Fantasy Impact

Another start for Gallardo, and another subpar performance. The veteran right-hander continues to struggle as a starter, allowing opponents to hit an ugly .285/.356/.494 against him. On the other hand, Gallardo did prove to be quite effective as a member of the bullpen earlier this summer, curbing hitters to a trifling .132/.233/.237 slash line over 11.1 innings in four appearances. It would not be surprising to see Gallardo removed from the rotation to the bullpen once James Paxton and Felix Hernandez are reinstated from the disabled list. Nor would it be surprising if fantasy owners have not already removed Gallardo from their rotations either.

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.
