Yovani Gallardo struggles in first start of the season

Yovani Gallardo tossed five innings Sunday, allowing five runs on six hits and three walks, but he didn't factor into the decision during Texas' 13-12 win over Colorado. He struck out four batters and gave up one home run.

Fantasy Impact

Gallardo started the season with the Reds but was released after three relief appearances when he had a 30.86 ERA. The 32-year-old veteran is starting because the Rangers are desperate right now. Fantasy owners should avoid Gallardo in all formats.

Yovani Gallardo not on Brewers' final roster

Yovani Gallardo has not made the Brewers' final roster.

Fantasy Impact

Gallardo was in the mix for a rotation spot with the Brewers, but a 4.73 ERA this spring kept him off the roster entirely. The Brewers have two days to find a trade partner for Gallardo, otherwise he'll be released.

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.
