Yovani Gallardo was hit hard for seven runs in 4 1/3 innings Monday against the Padres.
Gallardo allowed nine hits, with three of them leaving the yard. His spring ERA now sits at 9.24, but the Mariners acquired him over the winter with the idea of plugging him in their rotation. That’s not going to change now, but fortunately most fantasy owners have more appealing alternatives to choose from. Mar 27 - 8:50 PM

Yovani Gallardo gave up two runs in 4 1/3 innings Friday in his Cactus League start against the Diamondbacks.

Gallardo allowed four hits and walked three batters, but he managed to avoid a disaster inning and keep the Mariners in the ballgame. The veteran right-hander missed time with a shoulder injury last season while struggling with a 5.42 ERA over 23 starts. On the bright side, Gallardo is headed to a more pitcher-friendly venue after being swapped from the Orioles to the Mariners over the winter, but there’s not a lot for fantasy owners to get excited about at this point.

Yovani Gallardo struck out five but allowed four runs and served up three home runs for Mexico in a World Baseball Classic loss to Italy on Thursday.

Gallardo didn't walk anyone to go along with the five punchouts, but three of the four hits he surrendered left the yard. Mexico eventually coughed up a four-run ninth inning lead. Gallardo put up a 5.42 ERA last season with the Orioles and isn't someone you want to invest in in fantasy leagues this season even with a move to a more pitcher-friendly park.
Mar 10 - 10:09 AM

Yovani Gallardo fanned three over three scoreless innings of work in Saturday's Cactus League contest against the Rockies.

Now that is more like it. Gallardo was hit up for four runs in just one inning of work in his spring debut. Much crisper results this time around. He did not walk a batter and yielded just one hit on the afternoon. The Mariners traded for him -- they traded for everybody this offseason -- from the Orioles at the beginning of January. He struggled to a 5.42 ERA in 23 starts (118 innings) a year ago.
Mar 4 - 6:11 PM

Yovani Gallardo was pounded for four runs in one inning of work in a start against the Royals on Monday.

He gave up three hits and two walks without striking out a batter. Gallardo projects as the Mariners' fifth starter. He is coming off a rough 5.42 ERA in 118 innings with the Orioles last year. Today's effort did not make a good first impression with his new team.
Feb 27 - 11:52 PM

Yovani Gallardo will pitch for Team Mexico in the World Baseball Classic.

He'll be joined by Khris Davis, Adrian Gonzalez, Miguel Gonzalez and Roberto Osuna among others. Gallardo also represented Mexico in the last WBC in 2013. The right-hander has a chance for a fresh start in Seattle this season following a difficult year in Baltimore.
Jan 28 - 6:50 PM

Mariners acquired RHP Yovani Gallardo and cash from the Orioles in exchange for OF Seth Smith.

The Mariners needed a starter, but it's puzzling as to why they'd be interested in Gallardo, who has been in a backslide for a few years now that culminated in a 5.42 ERA across 23 starts last season. The righty had at least been an innings-eater prior to 2016, but there's no guarantee he'll regain his durability given that he'll soon be 31 and has a lot of mileage on his arm. Gallardo gets to go to a more pitcher-friendly ballpark, but he's not going to have mixed-league value in 2017.
Jan 6 - 1:26 PM

Yovani Gallardo spun six innings of one-run ball in an 8-1 win over the Yankees on Friday.

This is a crucial series for Baltimore and Gallardo answered the call in the opener, holding the Yankees to just two hits while walking four and striking out three. The only run scored on a sacrifice fly from Mark Teixeira in the fourth inning. The veteran right-hander will finish the regular season with a disappointing 5.42 ERA over 23 starts, but he allowed three earned runs or fewer in eight out of his last 10 starts.

Yovani Gallardo will make his final start of the regular season in Friday's game against the Yankees.

Gallardo and the O's are currently in the lead for the second Wild Card, with the Tigers (1.0 GB), Mariners (1.5 GB) and Astros (3.0 GB) all nipping at their heels. Wade Miley and Kevin Gausman are likely to start the final two games against New York.

Yovani Gallardo pitched well in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Friday, allowing two runs on six hits over his six innings.

The veteran right-hander punched out five while issuing two free passes. The Diamondbacks struck for single runs in the first and second innings, then Gallardo settled in and kept them off the scoreboard the remainder of his night. A major disappointment for most of the season, he'll carry a 5.63 ERA and 1.62 WHIP into his regular season finale against the Yankees in New York on Friday.

Yovani Gallardo allowed six runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings in a loss to the Rays on Thursday.

It started off poorly for the right-hander, as two walks and a three-run home run put him in the hole from the outset. Of course, it didn't get much better, as the Rays scored in each of the next three innings as well. Gallardo has been nothing short of a disappointment for the O's this year, posting a 5.77 ERA and 1.63 WHIP while making 21 starts. A date with the Red Sox on Tuesday doesn't offer much promise for the near future, either.
Thu, Sep 15, 2016 11:24:00 PM

Yovani Gallardo will have his next start pushed back.

Gallardo had been on track to pitch Tuesday against the Red Sox but instead he'll get the ball Thursday against Tampa Bay. He hasn't pitched since September 6, so the Orioles essentially skipped his turn. Now that Chris Tillman is back from a shoulder injury, it looks like the Orioles will go with a six-man rotation down the stretch.
Sat, Sep 10, 2016 08:39:00 PM

Yovani Gallardo allowed two runs -- one earned -- over five innings in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

Gallardo was better than he needed to be, as the O's gave him 11 runs of support in the contest. The win was his fifth of the year and his first in over a month. Gallardo is now 5-7 with a 5.44 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 20 starts. The 30-year-old will try to make it two in a row Monday at the Red Sox.

Yovani Gallardo turned in a quality start with three runs in six innings but was hit with a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He fanned three, issued two free passes and allowed five base hits. Two of those were home runs, including one by Jose Bautista on the first pitch of the game. All three runs scored in the first inning but Gallardo went on to throw another five shutout frames before being lifted. Gallardo falls to 4-7 with a 5.62 ERA in 19 starts. He doesn't strike out enough batters and walks too many to be relied upon in fantasy leagues. He has a wimpy 65 strikeouts and a whopping 52 walks in 97 2/3 frames.
Wed, Aug 31, 2016 11:36:00 PM

Yovani Gallardo lasted just 1 1/3 innings and was rocked for eight runs (seven earned) in a loss to the Yankees on Friday.

It was the shortest start of his major league career. Gallardo surrendered a two-run homer to Mark Teixeira in the first inning before six straight hitters reached base against him in the second inning. All of them eventually came around to score, the final one after Gallardo was pulled from the game. The veteran right-hander saw his ERA jump to 5.69 with the shellacking. It goes without saying that he’s not a fantasy option at this point, but we’ll say it anyway.
