Yovani Gallardo will start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.
The Rangers are moving him up a day so he can start twice before the All-Star break. With Gallardo starting next Sunday, it's unlikely he'll be picked for the All-Star Game. The right-hander hasn't allowed a run in his last 29 1/3 innings and now owns the American League's fifth-lowest ERA at 2.56. Jul 4 - 7:58 PM

Yovani Gallardo extended his scoreless innings streak to 29 1/3 with another six shutout frames against the Orioles in a no-decision on Thursday.

The right-hander was once again superb, scattering just two hits and three walks on the evening while striking out two. He now boasts a tremendous 2.56 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 72/31 K/BB ratio over 102 innings on the season. He'll look to extend his dominance further when he does battle against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Jul 2 - 10:28 PM

Yovani Gallardo delivered another outstanding effort on Saturday, hurling 8 2/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Blue Jays.

Gallardo scattered just three hits on the day while walking two and striking out four. Now 7-6 on the season, he'll carry an impressive 2.72 ERA into next week's start against the Orioles in Baltimore.
Jun 27 - 4:20 PM

Yovani Gallardo tossed five scoreless innings Sunday in a no-decision against the White Sox.

This after he went seven scoreless last Monday against the Dodgers. Gallardo wasn't nearly as efficient on Sunday afternoon in Chicago, needing 98 pitches to get through five frames, but it was still another impressive showing from the 29-year-old right-hander. He boasts a 2.98 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 66/26 K/BB ratio in 87 2/3 innings (15 starts) this season for the Rangers. A date with the Blue Jays is next.
Jun 21 - 5:44 PM

Yovani Gallardo fired seven scoreless innings in Monday's 4-1 win over the Dodgers.

Another strong start for Gallardo, who held the Dodgers to four hits while walking three and striking out four. He has now allowed two earned runs or fewer in five consecutive starts, lowering his ERA from 4.26 to 3.16 in the process. He'll try to keep it going in a start against the White Sox this weekend.
Jun 15 - 11:47 PM

Yovani Gallardo struck out 10 and fired seven innings of two-run ball in Wednesday's no-decision against the A's.

Gallardo yielded five hits and a walk along the way. As a fantasy owner, it's time your ears started perking up. Gallardo wasn't usable in mixed leagues until late May (2-5 with a 4.19 ERA in his first seven starts), but he's been dynamite since, entering this evening having gone 3-1 with a 2.70 ERA across his last five trips to the bump. Gallardo has an interesting two-start week on deck; he'll face the Dodgers at home and the White Sox on the road.
Jun 11 - 1:15 AM

Yovani Gallardo allowed just an unearned run through six innings Thursday versus the White Sox.

Gallardo allowed three hits, walked two and struck out four in his third straight quality start. He's not recommended in mixed leagues, but he's giving the Rangers pretty much what they should have hoped for when they acquired him.
Jun 5 - 12:09 AM

Yovani Gallardo gave up two runs (one earned) over six innings in a win over the Red Sox on Friday.

Both runs scored in the fourth inning via a sacrifice fly by Xander Bogaerts and an RBI single from Blake Swihart. Gallardo allowed just four hits and walked three while striking out five batters. The veteran right-hander has won three out of his last four starts and has allowed three earned runs or fewer in nine out of his 11 starts this season. He'll carry a 3.88 ERA into a start against the White Sox next week at home.
May 29 - 11:16 PM

Yovani Gallardo fired six innings of two-run ball in Sunday's victory over the Yankees, allowing just four hits and a walk along the way.

Gallardo punched out six on the night. All of the damage against him came in the first inning on a two-out, two-run single by Brian McCann. He was able to settle in nicely afterwards though, keeping his team in the game and allowing the Rangers offense to come from behind. Now 4-6 on the season, he'll head into Friday's start against the Red Sox with a 4.13 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 40/16 K/BB ratio through 56 2/3 innings on the year.
May 24 - 11:34 PM

Yovani Gallardo surrendered four runs and 10 hits over five innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Gallardo served up two homers among his 10 hits, giving him seven homers allowed in his nine starts. Gallardo struck out two without walking a batter. The right-hander dropped to 3-6 with a 4.26 ERA and 1.38 WHIP on the year. Gallardo will next face the Yankees at Yankee Stadium on Sunday.
May 19 - 10:40 PM

Yovani Gallardo yielded two runs in seven innings Wednesday in a win over the Royals.

Gallardo snapped a four-start losing streak with the victory. With a 3.94 ERA, he's basically given the Rangers what they should have expected following his offseason acquisition. Of course, when the Rangers paid the price to get him, they were expecting to have Yu Darvish, Derek Holland and a hopeful contender in the AL West.
May 13 - 11:15 PM

Yovani Gallardo picked up his fourth loss in a row on Friday, allowing four runs (three earned) over 5 1/3 innings against the Rays.

Gallardo served up a solo home run to David DeJesus in the second inning, but it wasn't until the sixth inning that things really started to fall apart. The Rays scored four runs in the frame. One of those was unearned and the other three scored after Gallardo exited the game. Despite the cavalcade of caveats here, the end result was Gallardo's fourth loss in a row as he dropped to 2-5. He holds a 4.19 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 28/14 K/BB ratio over 38 2/3 innings and will try to break his losing streak when he faces the Royals at home in his next start.
May 8 - 11:12 PM

Yovani Gallardo picked up his third loss in a row on Sunday, allowing four runs (three earned) over 6 2/3 innings against the A's.

Gallardo struck out one and walked four while scattering seven hits over his 6 2/3 innings. Stephen Vogt's two homers accounted for all three earned runs off the pitcher, though Vogt's second bomb came off the bullpen (allowing a few inherited runners to score). Gallardo's effort wasn't awful by any means, but he happened to go up against a red-hot Sonny Gray. After starting out 2-1, Gallardo's seen his record fall to 2-4. He'll take a 4.05, 1.44 WHIP and 25/12 K/BB ratio (in 33 1/3 innings) on the road against the Rays in his next start.
May 3 - 7:45 PM

Yovani Gallardo fell to 2-3 after allowing three runs in six innings versus the Mariners on Monday.

The Mariners scored two runs in the first inning, one of which was aided with a throwing error by shortstop Elvis Andrus. Overall, it was a better outing than the box score indicated. Gallardo allowed three hits, walked three, and struck out five. He'll take a 4.05 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and a 24/8 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings into a start at home against the Athletics.
Apr 27 - 11:56 PM

Yovani Gallardo picked up the loss on Wednesday, allowing five runs (three earned) on six hits to the Diamondbacks.

Gallardo also struck out six in the contest. He surrendered two runs in the first innings and solo runs in the third, fourth and fifth. Run-scoring errors by Adrian Beltre and Prince Fielder didn't help the cause. Neither Gallardo's 3.92 ERA, nor his 1.50 WHIP, offer much appeal to those in mixed leagues, but Gallardo is still usable in AL-only leagues. He'll face the Mariners in his next outing.
