CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Brewers plan to exercise Yovani Gallardo's $13 million option for 2015.

It's no surprise, as Gallardo is coming off a nice season in which he posted a 3.51 ERA and 1.30 WHIP while making 30+ starts for the sixth consecutive year. His strikeouts and velocity are going in the wrong direction, but Gallardo will turn just 29 in February and has been very durable. It's a no-brainer move by Milwaukee. He's currently slated for free agency after next season.

Yovani Gallardo gave up five runs -- three earned -- in five innings Thursday in a loss to the Reds.

Gallardo ended up going 0-5 in his final seven starts to end the season 8-12 with a 3.51 ERA. That ERA is actually the best mark of his career, edging his 3.52 mark from 2011. He won 17 games that year. In fact, he had won at least 12 games in a row in five straight seasons until his offense abandoned him in 2014.
Sep 25 - 4:02 PM

Yovani Gallardo was handed no-decision Friday despite striking out a season-high 11 batters over seven scoreless innings against the Pirates.

Gallardo allowed five hits on the night while walking just one batter. He came up big in a very important game for the Brewers, but Jonathan Broxton cost him a chance at the win by giving up a go-ahead three-run homer to Russell Martin in the eighth inning. The veteran right-hander has had an up-and-down season, but he now owns a 3.46 ERA through 31 starts. He'll wrap up the season with a start against the Reds next week in Cincinnati.
Sep 19 - 10:45 PM

Yovani Gallardo held the Reds to two runs in six innings but the Brewers lost to the Reds on Saturday.

Gallardo gave up just four hits -- and all of them were singles -- but the Milwaukee offense provided only one run of support and so the right-hander fell to 8-10 on the year. He'll carry a 3.59 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into his next start on the road versus the Pirates.
Sep 13 - 10:25 PM

Yovani Gallardo was tagged for five runs and three homers in 3 2/3 innings by the Marlins on Monday.

The Brewers needed their longtime ace to step up, but he's instead been lit up in back-to-back starts, giving up 12 runs and four homers in back-to-back losses. If he's not better against the Reds this weekend, he should be dropped in mixed leagues.
Sep 8 - 11:11 PM

Yovani Gallardo was hit hard by the Cubs on Tuesday, allowing seven runs -- five earned -- over five innings in a loss.

Gallardo gave up a walk and three straight singles in the first, and he wasn't getting any help from his defense -- two errors allowed another two runs to score in the four-run inning. Three more runs in the fifth inning, including a two-run homer, ended Gallardo's night. The loss dropped Gallardo to 8-8 with a 3.43 ERA through 28 starts. He's got a big start against the division-leading Cardinals on tap for Sunday.
Sep 2 - 11:26 PM

Yovani Gallardo allowed six runs -- three earned -- over five innings in a loss to the Pirates on Friday.

An Aramis Ramirez error led off the Pirates' three-run second inning, but Gallardo struggled for much of the night. He finished with eight hits and three walks allowed, striking out four. Gallardo dropped to 8-7 with a 3.38 ERA on the season. He'll look to get back on the horse Wednesday at the Padres.
Aug 22 - 11:31 PM

Yovani Gallardo pitched eight innings of one-run ball to beat the Dodgers on Saturday.

Gallardo trailed Clayton Kershaw in strikeouts, 11-3, and also gave up one more hit than the Dodgers' left-hander, but he came away with the win. All six hits he gave up were singles, and he benefitted from Carlos Gomez throwing out Justin Turner at second base in the fourth. It's the fourth time in five stars that Gallardo has pitched at least seven innings and allowed one or no runs. He's 8-6 with a 3.32 ERA.
Aug 17 - 12:01 AM

Yovani Gallardo limited the Cubs to a run over seven innings Monday in the Brewers' 3-1 victory.

Gallardo struggled with his command and turned in his second shortest start of the year last time out, but this makes three terrific outings for him in his last four appearances. He even got a rare win out of it. Gallardo is now 7-6 with a 3.44 ERA over 24 starts this season. Teammate Wily Peralta has allowed four more runs over two fewer innings in his 23 starts, yet stands 14-6.
Aug 11 - 11:52 PM

Yovani Gallardo fell to 6-6 after giving up four runs in four innings against the Giants on Wednesday.

It could have been a lot worse; Gallardo gave up five more hits and a couple of walks after a three-run first, but the Giants got to him for just one more run. It was his second shortest start of the year. The four walks tonight matched his total from his five starts in July.
Aug 7 - 12:48 AM

Yovani Gallardo yielded just three hits over seven scoreless frames in Wednesday's 5-0 victory over the Rays.

Gallardo gave up just three singles, walked one and struck out five. Though he's dealt with his bouts of inconsistency, the right-hander has tossed 14 2/3 scoreless innings over his last two outings. He'll take a nifty 3.38 ERA into a home start against the Giants next week.
Jul 30 - 3:57 PM

Yovani Gallardo tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings against the Mets on Friday, but was handed a no-decision.

Tough break for Gallardo, who was dominant. He allowed just four hits (all of them singles) and no walks while fanning eight batters. However, Francisco Rodriguez blew his chance at a win in the ninth. Gallardo is now winless over his last six starts. He'll try to turn that around when he faces the red-hot Rays next week.
Jul 26 - 12:05 AM

Yovani Gallardo struggled again, but walked away with a no-decision after allowing four runs in six innings to the Nationals as the Brewers lost on Sunday.

Gallardo has now allowed four or more runs in three out of his last four starts. On the afternoon, the right-hander yielded eight hits -- including a home run to Ryan Zimmerman -- while walking two and striking out six. Gallardo now carries a 3.79 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 92/34 K/BB ratio. He'll try to bounce back when he takes on the Mets at home on Friday.
Jul 20 - 5:26 PM

Yovani Gallardo yielded five runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Friday.

Gallardo was handed an early 6-0 lead, but he gave up three home runs to get the Cardinals back in the ballgame. The bullpen finished the job. Gallardo struck out three and walked one in the no-decision and will finish a resurgent first half with a 3.68 ERA and 86/32 K/BB ratio over 115 innings.
