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.
Jun 17 - 10:34 PM

Yovani Gallardo fared poorly in Thursday’s loss to the Rockies, allowing six hits, five runs, and three walks while recording two strikeouts.

Gallardo’s afternoon was a disaster from the word go. The Rockies bludgeoned him for four runs in the second inning and grabbed another in the third on a towering solo blast by Nolan Arenado. This was the second time in three outings Gallardo has failed to make it out of the fourth inning. With Seattle’s rotation getting closer to full strength, his spot isn’t as secure as it once was. The 31-year-old will look to get back on track next time out against Minnesota.
Jun 1 - 7:37 PM

Yovani Gallardo was hammered for 10 runs - nine earned - and nine hits with two walks and four strikeouts over 3 2/3 innings in a loss against the White Sox on Saturday.

Gallardo's ERA mushroomed from 4.53 to 5.84 as a result of the awful outing. He hasn't been terribly reliable at home this season, going 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA across five starts at Safeco Field. Homers have done him in lately, as he has served up four homers over his past 10 innings after yielding just three long balls through his first 39 1/3 frames.
May 21 - 3:12 AM

Yovani Gallardo allowed three earned runs over five innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Phillies.

Seattle picked apart the Philadelphia bullpen to earn an 11-6 victory at Citizens Bank Park. Gallardo tallied only one strikeout while walking three and surrendering four hits, including a three-run homer to Aaron Altherr in the bottom of the third inning. The veteran right-hander holds a 4.58 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 39 1/3 innings this season.
May 10 - 5:10 PM

Yovani Gallardo pitched six innings of one-run ball Friday against the Rangers.

Gallardo is 1-3 with a 4.46 ERA after six starts. It's impressive that he's allowed just two homers in 34 1/3 innings, but even so, he's still been a below average starter.
May 6 - 3:29 AM

Yovani Gallardo allowed four runs over six innings in a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

Gallardo gave up seven hits and walked three, and he struck out seven for his second consecutive start. The 31-year-old has now registered just one quality start in his five appearances this year, owning a 5.08 ERA and 1.59 WHIP. Gallardo will work on his 1-3 record when he takes on his former team, the Rangers, on Friday.
Apr 29 - 8:58 PM

Yovani Gallardo surrendered one run on four hits over 6 1/3 innings in Sunday's win over the A's.

Gallardo struck out seven and walked one on the afternoon. The only run to score against him came when Matt Joyce lofted a sacrifice fly in the seventh. The veteran right-hander will bring a 4.84 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 16/7 K/BB ratio (four starts) into a road date with the defending AL champion Indians next time out.
Apr 23 - 7:57 PM

Yovani Gallardo pitched five innings and gave up four runs Wednesday against the Astros.

Gallardo's velocity is up, which will at least give him a fighting chance against AL offenses. Still, he seems like a weak bet for fantasy purposes. He allowed seven hits, walked four and struck out two tonight. After two starts, he's sporting a 6.30 ERA.
Apr 13 - 1:44 AM

Yovani Gallardo yielded three runs and eight hits in five-plus innings Friday against the Angels.

The stuff just isn't there for Gallardo to consistently shut down major league lineups right now. The Mariners should be content when he allows three runs over five or six innings.
Apr 8 - 1:51 AM

Yovani Gallardo was sharp in Cactus League work against the Rockies on Saturday, firing off three scoreless innings.

Nice rebound from Gallardo, who was shellacked for seven runs in 4 1/3 frames during his previous spring outing. This time around, he allowed two hits but no runs. He did not strike out or walk a batter in the contest. In his 23 starts during the 2016 season, Gallardo struggled to a 5.42 ERA. He opens the season in the M's rotation, but holds little fantasy value.
Apr 1 - 5:41 PM

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.
