CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles have reached out to the representatives for free agent right-hander Yovani Gallardo.
Gallardo declined a $15.8 million qualifying offer from the Rangers, so signing him would require giving up a first-round pick. While the Orioles like him, they might not be willing to go there. Gallardo is coming off a solid season where he posted a 3.42 ERA and 121/68 K/BB ratio over 184 1/3 innings. The Diamondbacks and Tigers are among the other teams who have reportedly expressed interest. Nov 25 - 2:50 PM

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that the Diamondbacks are interested in free agent right-hander Yovani Gallardo.

Gallardo opted to decline the Rangers' $15.8 million qualifying offer in order to explore the open market, and the Diamondbacks are one of several clubs already rumored to be interested in his services. He had a terrific season for the Rangers, posting a 3.42 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 121/68 K/BB ratio over 184 1/3 innings.

RHP Yovani Gallardo has rejected a one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer from the Rangers.

Gallardo had a nice season for the Rangers, putting up a 3.42 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 121/68 K/BB ratio across 33 starts. The two sides are interested in a reunion, but Gallardo will have some other options as a free agent. The Diamondbacks and Tigers are two clubs that are reportedly interested.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Tigers are interested in Yovani Gallardo.

Detroit is expected to go after a couple starters this winter, and most anticipate them targeting mid-tier guys. Gallardo would fit the bill after posting a 3.42 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 121/68 K/BB ratio across 33 starts this past season. He's expected to decline the Rangers' qualifying offer, but the Tigers' first-round pick is protected.
Nov 13 - 11:45 AM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Yovani Gallardo will reject the Rangers' one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer.

It comes as no surprise, of course, as Gallardo is expected to receive a multi-year contract this winter. That contract might come from the Rangers, as both sides are interested in a reunion. Gallardo put up a 3.42 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 121/68 K/BB ratio across 33 starts this past season.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman wrote that the Diamondbacks are interested in free agent pitcher Yovani Gallardo.

Gallardo should see his fair share of interest over the off-season, with the Diamondbacks among the intrigued parties. The Rangers have already offered him a $15.8 million qualifying offer (which he's expected to turn down). He held a 3.42 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 121/68 K/BB ratio across 33 starts this season. Though he's likely to reject the Rangers' initial qualifying offer, that doesn't necessarily mean that he's not planning on re-upping with his Texas brethren.
Nov 11 - 5:24 PM

Rangers extended a $15.8 million qualifying offer to RHP Yovani Gallardo.

He's expected to reject it, but both the Rangers and Gallardo are interested in a reunion. The right-hander put up a 3.42 ERA over 33 starts this season, although he also had a 1.42 WHIP and his strikeout rate bottomed out at 5.9 K/9.
Nov 6 - 5:16 PM

Yovani Gallardo pitched well in Thursday's 5-3 Game 1 ALDS showdown win over the Blue Jays, tossing five innings of two-run ball.

Gallardo didn't exactly overwhelm the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the ALDS, but he was largely effective. The 29-year-old right-hander scattered four hits while striking out one and walking one. The two runs on his line both came in his final two innings. In the fourth, he surrendered an infield RBI single to Edwin Encarnacion and an inning later, an RBI double by Kevin Pillar sounded the final action on his day. Assuming the series lasts longer than three games, he should see another start in the ALDS. Cole Hamels will take on the torch and start Game 2 on Friday.
Oct 8 - 6:34 PM

Yovani Gallardo will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Cole Hamels just pitched on Sunday, so he wasn't an option for the assignment. However, Hamels will start Game 2 on Friday. Gallardo posted a 3.42 ERA in 33 starts this season and has pitched well vs. Toronto, but he has completed six innings in a start just once since the start of August.
Oct 6 - 12:36 PM

Yovani Gallardo pitched 5 1/3 innings and allowed two runs Wednesday as the Rangers beat the Tigers 6-2.

Unless Gallardo is needed in relief this weekend, he finishes a fine regular season with a 13-11 record and a 3.42 ERA. It's better than we expected after the trade to Texas, though the 1.42 WHIP and dwindling strikeout rate (121 K in 184 1/3 IP) wouldn't seem to bode well for the future.
Oct 1 - 12:08 AM

Yovani Gallardo allowed two runs in 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Friday.

Rangers manager Jeff Banister brought the hook after Gallardo gave up a two-out double to Evan Gattis. He finished just one out short of qualifying for the victory, but Banister didn't want to take a chance of letting the Astros back in it. Gallardo labored for most of the outing, allowing eight hits -- including a home run -- and two walks while throwing just 48 out of 87 pitches for strikes. The veteran right-hander has completed six innings just once dating back to July 30.
Sep 26 - 12:46 AM

Yovani Gallardo surrendered three runs on eight hits over five innings in Friday's loss to the Mariners.

All three runs on Gallardo's line scored in the second inning, when Ketel Marte hit a two-run double and Kyle Seager followed it up with an RBI single. For the season, he's pitched to a 3.41 ERA and 1.38 WHIP. A road date with the A's shows next on his schedule.
Sep 18 - 11:47 PM

Yovani Gallardo was not on his game in Saturday's loss to the A's, surrendering five runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Gallardo coughed up two homers in the loss, as the fifth inning saw a three-run homer by Mark Canha and a two-run bomb by Danny Valencia to account for all the action on the right-hander's line. Saturday's tough outing aside, the veteran's pitched decently this season while maintaining a 3.35 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. A home start against the Mariners awaits him next time he toes the rubber.
Sep 12 - 11:42 PM

Yovani Gallardo earned the win on Monday, shutting out the Mariners over 5 1/3 innings.

Gallardo scattered five hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. It's the fourth time in his last six starts he's held the opposition scoreless, though he hasn't been able to complete the sixth inning in all but one of those starts. The right-hander holds a 3.16 ERA with a 1.35 WHIP and a 105/61 K/BB ratio over 165 innings. Gallardo hosts the Athletics in his next outing.
Sep 7 - 9:58 PM

Yovani Gallardo took a no-decision in Tuesday's win over the Padres, allowing four runs in five innings.

All four runs were driven in by Matt Kemp, who plated two with a double in the third inning, then hit a two-run homer in the fifth. Gallardo, overall, gave up six hits and a walk while striking out two. The right-hander is near the end of a great year for the Rangers, currently sporting a 3.27 ERA with a 1.35 WHIP and a 101/59 K/BB ratio over 159 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Mariners at Safeco Field in his next start.
