Yovani Gallardo has been moved to the bullpen.

Gallardo owns a poor 5.79 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 126 innings this season with Seattle. Andrew Moore will pitch Wednesday versus the Astros and Mike Leake will make his second start for the Mariners on Friday against the Angels.
Sep 5 - 6:41 PM

The Mariners are considering removing Yovani Gallardo from their rotation.

It speaks as to how poorly Gallardo has pitched that a team as riddled with injuries in their rotation is considering a change. Marco Gonzales pitched well in relief of Gallardo on Saturday and it looks like he'll probably take his rotation spot for the upcoming week.
Sep 3 - 2:43 PM

Yovani Gallardo was pulled after giving up two runs in three innings Saturday against the A's.

The runs came on solo homers from Bruce Maxwell and Khris Davis. Gallardo has had just one quality start since re-entering the rotation in late July. This would seem to be a good time for the Mariners to banish him back to middle relief.
Sep 3 - 1:12 AM

Yovani Gallardo struggled in Saturday's loss to the Yankees, allowing four runs on four hits over his 5 2/3 innings of work.

The veteran right-hander also issued five walks on the afternoon while striking out four. The big blow against him, and in the ballgame, came on a three-run homer off the bat of Jacoby Ellsbury in the fourth inning. Gallardo will look to improve upon a troublesome 5.78 ERA and 1.50 WHIP when he takes on the Athletics on Friday.
Aug 26 - 4:44 PM

Yovani Gallardo surrendered three earned runs over 6 1/3 innings Sunday as the Mariners fell to the Rays.

Gallardo struck out six batters, but he issued three walks and gave up five hits -- including a solo homer to Kevin Kiermaier in the bottom of the first inning and a two-run shot to Adeiny Hechavarria in the bottom of the seventh. Gallardo is 5-9 on the season with a 5.75 ERA.
Aug 20 - 3:58 PM

Yovani Gallardo was lit up for eight runs in four-plus innings by the Orioles on Monday.

Gallardo's previous four starts since joining the rotation hadn't been great, but they weren't disasters; he allowed a total of 10 runs in 20 innings. Whether he can survive this bad of a blowout and keep his spot is unclear, but with Felix Hernandez and James Paxton on the DL, the Mariners are lacking options.
Aug 15 - 2:11 AM

Yovani Gallardo allowed three runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings in Wednesday's win over the A's.

Gallardo struck out three and walked two on the afternoon. Two of the three runs on his line came home via solo home runs, with Matt Joyce and Khris Davis socking dingers in the first and third innings, respectively. Up next on the docket, a home start against the Orioles. Gallardo will carry a bloated 5.38 ERA and 1.48 WHIP (22 appearances, 18 starts) into that contest.
Aug 9 - 6:41 PM

Yovani Gallardo allowed three runs on three hits over five-plus innings in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

Gallardo had his issues with control in this one, handing out three walks to just one strikeout. The big blow against him came when Brandon Moss socked a two-run homer in the fifth inning to knot the score at 2-2. Gallardo has turned in a disappointing year on the whole, pitching to a 5.35 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 21 appearances (17 starts). He will take on the A's in a road date next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 3 - 11:37 PM

Yovani Gallardo allowed just one run in 5 2/3 innings to earn a 3-2 win over the Mets on Saturday.

He made it through the first five innings unscathed. He got the first two outs of the sixth inning and left two runners on base when he was relieved. Tony Zych then walked the first two batters he faced to force in a run charged to Gallardo. His record improves to 5-7 with a 5.34 ERA and 1.47 WHIP after 16 starts and four relief appearances this year.
Jul 29 - 8:09 PM

All three runs Yovani Gallardo surrendered over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Yankees came on solo home runs.

Gallardo allowed a leadoff homer to Brett Gardner in the first inning, a solo homer to Didi Gregorius in the second and yet another solo dinger to Gregorius in the fourth. The veteran right-hander struck out five and walked three while scattering five hits over his five innings of work. He was briefly demoted to the bullpen near the end of June, but with Sam Gaviglio heading down to Triple-A, Gallardo has been moved back to the rotation. He will bring a bloated 5.58 ERA and 1.49 WHIP into a home start against the Mets in his next scheduled outing.
Jul 23 - 7:34 PM

Yovani Gallardo will start Sunday against the Yankees.

Gallardo was moved to the bullpen about a month ago but a spot opened up for him when the Mariners sent struggling rookie Sam Gaviglio down to Triple-A. The 31-year-old has gone 3-7 with a 6.30 ERA over 14 starts this year.
Jul 20 - 7:14 PM

Yovani Gallardo picked up his first career save with three scoreless innings Friday against the Astros.

Gallardo, demoted to the pen earlier this week, made his first relief appearance since making three as a rookie in 2007 and finished off the Mariners' 13-3 win. Obviously, three three-inning blowout saves are the only ones that he's a candidate for.
Jun 24 - 1:57 AM

With Mariners pitching prospect Andrew Moore being called up, Yovani Gallardo is moving to the bullpen.

Moore will take over Gallardo's spot in the rotation and will make his first start for the M's when they take on the Tigers on Thursday. Gallardo, 31, has struggled to a dreadful 6.30 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 14 starts. Those who had been clinging to the veteran right-hander in chasm-deep AL-only leagues can feel free to part ways.
Jun 21 - 7:25 PM

Yovani Gallardo allowed five earned runs, six hits and a walk with three strikeouts over five innings in a loss in Texas on Saturday.

Gallardo's record slipped to 3-7 and his ERA rose to 6.30 from 6.11 as a result of another non-quality start. He has allowed less than three earned runs while going six or more innings just once since May 15. Gallardo, a 17-game winner in Milwaukee in 2011, has devolved into a journeyman pitcher and a fantasy option worth using only in the deepest of AL play.
