Yovani Gallardo touched up by Twins in no-decision

Yovani Gallardo logged seven innings of five run ball against the Minnesota Twins. Gallardo struck out six, walked two, and allowed six hits. Miguel Sano homered off Gallardo in the fifth, driving in three. However, Gallardo escaped with a no-decision after Minnesota's bullpen fell apart.

Fantasy Impact

Gallardo has a 6.26 ERA but a 4.61 xFIP. While regression back towards an ERA in the mid fours is indicated by xFIP, Gallardo's lackluster strikeout rate and bloated walk rate, along with declining stuff as he ages into his 30s make him a less than satisfying option as a streamer in standard fantasy formats.

Yovani Gallardo touched up at home for loss number six

Yovani Gallardo's recent struggles continued during Thursday's home loss to the Colorado Rockies. Gallardo lasted all of three innings and surrendered five earned runs. He gave up six hits, including two separate home runs, to go along with three walks. Gallardo only struck out two and his ERA now sits at 6.24 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

Gallardo has struggled mightily in May and his season long numbers show he is far from a useful fantasy player. His strikeout and walk rates have improved over his 2016 performance, which isn't saying much as that was his worst year in major league baseball to date. His FIP suggests he may be getting a tad unlucky but not enough to merit any serious consideration in standard mixed league formats.

Yovani Gallardo struggles with command against the Red Sox

Yovani Gallardo logged 5 1/3 innings of three-run ball against the Boston Red Sox on Friday. He walked six, gave up seven hits, and struck out five.

Fantasy Impact

Gallardo's struggles to command the strike zone make him a highly volatile fantasy commodity. Despite his 5.76 ERA, Gallardo's FIP of 4.62 says he may be getting a little unlucky. Unfortunately, opposing batters are making plenty of hard contact as well as medium contact against him. Use with caution in any form of fantasy as he is prone to blowups that can tank a week or ruin a night in DFS.

Yovani Gallardo earns the win despite shaky bullpen performance

Yovani Gallardo logged his second win of the season on Monday. Gallardo lasted 6 1/3 innings, striking out five while allowing three runs. All three runs came courtesy of home runs, as Gallardo allowed two.

Fantasy Impact

On the whole Gallardo has been alright this season for the Mariners. His consistency of about five or six innings of work and allowing between two and four runs give owners a strong baseline of what to expect with him start by start. If you are desperate for pitching, Gallardo could help as a streamer, just do not expect much more in his stat line than what was previously mentioned.

Yovani Gallardo gets no-decision; Mariners win

Yovani Gallardo lasted five innings on Wednesday, where he allowed three runs to the Philadelphia Phillies. Seven runners reached base, four times by way of a base hit and three via walks. Gallardo recorded a single strikeout in the outing.

Fantasy Impact

While Gallardo's 4.46 ERA may be discouraging, his 3.30 FIP shows reason to expect more. There is no real change in his overall skills. His velocity is largely the same as in 2016, though he is walking less batters thus far. He is not yet viable in standard mixed leagues as a rotation fixture, but he is someone to keep an eye on moving forward. Consider him a streamer for now.
