Yovani Gallardo surrendered four runs on four hits and four walks in the seven innings he pitched in a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.
He struck out five batters in the ballgame. Free passes have killed Gallardo this year. With 37 strikeouts and 31 walks in 55 1/3 innings he has barely struck out more hitters than he has walked. That is a recipe for failure. He will try to improve his 5.69 ERA against the Rockies at home on Monday Jul 20 - 10:41 PM

Yovani Gallardo surrendered three runs in five innings and took a no-decision as the Orioles beat the Rays 4-3 on Friday, allowing eight hits and four walks while striking out two.

All the hits and walks led to 108 pitches in only five innings, forcing the Orioles to turn to the bullpen early. Now with a very poor 5.77 ERA and atrocious 1.76 WHIP, Gallardo just hasn't been able to pitch as well as he did the last several years. His velocity is down and his control has wavered. He is best left on the bench in all but the deepest of leagues.
Jul 15 - 10:39 PM

Yovani Gallardo limited the Angels to two runs over five innings in a no-decision Saturday.

Gallardo wasn't overly sharp, allowing six hits and walking four, but he did well to limit the damage and avoid what could have been a worse fate. Those kinds of starts have been common from Gallardo since being activated from the disabled list on June 18, as he's allowed three runs or fewer in six or fewer innings of work in four of his five starts in that stretch. Gallardo will take a 5.82 ERA and 1.68 WHIP into the All-Star break.
Jul 9 - 8:20 PM

Yovani Gallardo was lifted after allowing four runs in four innings Monday against the Dodgers.

Gallardo gave up two homers tonight. He's surrendered five in four starts since coming off the DL last month. He might prove adequate for Baltimore in the end, but there doesn't seem to be any fantasy upside here.
Jul 5 - 1:50 AM

Yovani Gallardo yielded three runs and three hits in six innings Wednesday against the Padres.

The Orioles have won all three of Gallardo's starts since he came off the disabled list, but he hasn't inspired all that much confidence yet with his 4.40 ERA, 14/9 K/BB ratio and three homers allowed in those outings. He's remains a long shot to turn into an asset in fantasy leagues.
Jun 29 - 7:39 PM

Yovani Gallardo surrendered three runs on seven hits and two walks in his 5 1/3 innings of work in a no-decision against the Rays on Friday night.

Making his sixth start of the season, Gallardo gave up all three runs in the first inning. The big blow was a two-run home run by Corey Dickerson. Gallardo has lost three MPH off his fastball compared to last year. His 6.04 ERA and 1.69 WHIP should be left on your bench until he shows signs of a turnaround.
Jun 24 - 10:35 PM

Yovani Gallardo limited the Blue Jays to two runs over five innings Saturday.

A nice outing from the right-hander, who was activated from the disabled list Saturday morning after missing nearly two months with a shoulder injury. He walked four but struck out five as his season ERA fell from 7.00 to 6.26. Up next is a start at home versus Tampa Bay.
Jun 18 - 6:50 PM

Orioles activated RHP Yovani Gallardo from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll return to the Orioles rotation on Saturday in a difficult assignment against the Blue Jays. In his four starts before landing on the shelf, Gallardo struggled to a 7.00 ERA and 1.67 WHIP across 18 innings.
Jun 18 - 12:47 PM

Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) will be activated from the disabled list Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Gallardo pitched well in his last rehab outing, holding Triple-A Charlotte to one run over five solid innings on Monday. His return will bump Ubaldo Jimenez from the starting rotation. Gallardo ended up missing about seven weeks with shoulder tendinitis. He'll return to an unconvincing 7.00 ERA over four appearances.
Jun 14 - 6:09 PM

Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) allowed just one run over five innings Monday in his latest minor league rehab start with Triple-A Norfolk.

The only hit he allowed was a leadoff homer to Carlos Sanchez. Otherwise, he was excellent, walking a pair while striking out five. Gallardo got stretched out to 90 pitches and is expected to make his return Saturday against the Blue Jays. The veteran right-hander posted an ugly 7.00 ERA in four starts with the Orioles prior to landing on the DL with right shoulder tendinitis on April 22.

Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) is expected to return from the disabled list June 18 against the Blue Jays.

He'll make one more start for Triple-A Norfolk before he's activated. Gallardo is working his way back from shoulder tendinitis. He scattered four hits and three runs over five innings Tuesday in his second rehab start. Gallardo carries an ugly 7.00 ERA in four starts for the Orioles this year.
Jun 9 - 6:32 PM

Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) allowed three runs over five innings Tuesday in his second minor league rehab start with Triple-A Norfolk.

Gallardo, who is working his way back from right shoulder and biceps tendinitis, allowed four hits and two walks while throwing 49 out of 85 pitches for strikes. Assuming he bounces back OK, he will likely be activated to start Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Jun 7 - 2:24 PM

Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) will make his next minor league rehab start on Tuesday with Triple-A Norfolk.

Gallardo, out since late April with right shoulder and biceps tendinitis, allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks over three innings during his first minor league rehab start with High-A Frederick last Thursday. It's possible he'll be ready to return to the Orioles after that, but the club wants to see how he does first before making an official decision.
Jun 6 - 4:41 PM

Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) is on track to rejoin the Orioles' rotation on June 12 in Toronto.

Gallardo didn't really inspire confidence in his first rehab start Thursday, getting knocked around for seven hits, two walks and three runs over three innings for High-A Frederick while being clocked at 87-91 mph. However, the Orioles' main concern is the health of his shoulder, and there's been no indication that he didn't feel right. Gallardo will make one more rehab start early next week before rejoining the O's rotation that weekend in Toronto.
Jun 3 - 8:57 AM

Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) was tagged for seven hits and three runs over three innings Thursday in a rehab start for High-A Frederick.

He walked two and finished with four strikeouts. Harry Grove Stadium in Frederick doesn't have radar guns but scouts said Gallardo's fastball averaged between 87-91 mph. Gallardo will throw a bullpen session at Camden Yards before heading out on another rehab assignment. Look for him to throw 75-80 pitches in his next start.
