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.
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.
Mar 17 - 9:02 PM

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.
