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.

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.

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.

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.

Yovani Gallardo logged a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Astros, allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits over his seven innings of work.

Gallardo walked three and struck out three on the night. It was actually one of the stronger starts that the veteran right-hander has had this year. He'll look to further improve upon his 5.08 ERA and 1.59 WHIP when he does battle against the Yankees in New York on Friday.

Yovani Gallardo walked five batters and yielded three runs over five frames in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

Gallardo was skating on thin ice for the first few innings before Mookie Betts finally made him pay with a three-run blast in the fifth. The veteran right-hander had put up two straight nice outings, but this was a step backward. He'll take on the Astros in his next trip to the hill.

Yovani Gallardo pitched well in Friday's victory over the White Sox, surrendering just two runs on seven hits over his six innings of work.

Gallardo walked one and struck out three on the contest, earning his fourth victory of the season for his efforts. He'll need to turn in more outings like this down the stretch if the O's are going to hold off the Blue Jays in the race for the crown in the American League East. He'll head into Wednesday's start against the Athletics in Oakland with a disappointing 5.47 ERA and 1.65 WHIP on the year.

Yovani Gallardo was hammered in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays, allowing five runs on five hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Gallardo struggled badly with his command, walking five and striking out five on the afternoon. He made it through the first four innings unscathed, but ran into a buzzsaw in the fifth. After a strikeout to begin to begin the inning, he gave up a homer to Devon Travis, then a pair of walks, a two-run double to Edwin Encarnacion and an intentional walk before departing. He'll look to improve upon a troublesome 5.70 ERA and 1.67 WHIP when he takes on the White Sox in Chicago on Friday.

Yovani Gallardo limited the Rockies to two runs over 6 2/3 frames but took a no-decision in Monday's 3-2 extra-innings win.

Gallardo struck out six batters -- which tied his season high -- while allowing five hits and two walks. It's arguably his best outing in an Orioles uniform, as it's his second-longest start for Baltimore and was just the fourth time in 12 tries that he gave up two runs or fewer. Gallardo faces the Blue Jays over the weekend.

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
