      Yovani Gallardo: In contact with Orioles

      Gallardo and the Orioles remain in contact as Baltimore has interest in signing the starting pitcher, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Gallardo has thrown between 180 and 210 innings in each of the past six seasons and has posted an ERA between 3.50 and 4.00 in five of them. The Orioles need some depth in their rotation, and as such it's a fit that makes sense. Gallardo has succeeded in hitters' parks in the past -- Texas and Milwaukee -- so there's no reason he can't handle Camden Yards.

      Yovani Gallardo: Rejects qualifying offer

      Gallardo turned down the Rangers' qualifying offer on Friday and will remain a free agent, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Gallardo had an impressive year in his lone season with Texas, posting a career-low 3.42 ERA but saw his strikeout rate fall while his walk rate climbed. The Rangers are still expected to go after the 29-year-old in free agency, but they'll get a compensatory draft pick if Gallardo does sign elsewhere.

      Yovani Gallardo: Extended a qualifying offer

      Gallardo was tendered a qualifying offer by the Rangers on Friday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports. Gallardo had a strong season after being traded to Texas over the offseason, pitching to a career-best 3.42 ERA en route to earning the club's Game 1 start in the ALDS. He'll turn 30 in February, but it's likely that the righty will turn down the qualifying offer in hopes of landing a multi-year contract in free agency.

      Rangers turning to Yovani Gallardo in first game of ALDS

      Rangers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo will start Game 1 of ALDS against the Blue Jays on Thursday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Cole Hamels went nine innings on Sunday, so he wasn't available to make the start, leaving Gallardo next in line for the opportunity. However, considering Gallardo's struggles as of late (he's made it through six innings just once since the start of August), he will probably be on a short leash. Hamels and his 3.65 ERA will likely take the mound in Game 2.

      Rangers' Yovani Gallardo continues to be inefficient in no decision

      Rangers starter Yovani Gallardo didn't factor into Friday's decision, giving up two runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out four over 4 2/3 innings in a win over Houston. Gallardo struggled with efficiency on Friday, failing to get past the fifth inning on 87 pitches. In 15 starts since Independence Day, Gallardo has made it through six innings just twice. His 4.21 BB/9 rate can be identified as a primary culprit in his inability to pitch deep into games. Given his weak strikeout totals, there is little incentive to have him in your rotation.

      Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo's start moved to Friday

      Rangers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo's next start was moved back to Friday against the Astros. The move allows Cole Hamels to move up to Thursday so that he can make three more starts this season. Of course, that means Gallardo will only get two more starts during the regular season.

      Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo gives up three runs on Friday

      Rangers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo (12-11) surrendered three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings in Friday's loss to Seattle. Friday marked the fifth consecutive start in which Gallardo failed to make it out of the sixth inning. Though he has maintained a respectable 3.41 ERA for the season, due in large part to ranking among the top 10 in the league in ground outs, he allows too many base runners and registers too few strikeouts to be counted on to provide any stability down the stretch.

      Horrible fifth inning sends Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo to defeat

      Rangers starter Yovani Gallardo had not made it through seven innings in his last 13 starts heading into his outing Saturday against Oakland. But at least he had been performing well. That is, until the Athletics pounded him for five runs on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings to lower his record to 12-10. Gallardo walked two and struck out three. He was fine through four, but did not survive a terrible fifth. Three singles and home runs by Mark Canha and Danny Valencia turned a 1-0 lead into a 5-1 deficit and knocked Gallardo out of the game.

      Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo quiets Jays' offense in victory

      Rangers starter Yovani Gallardo was strong in his outing against the Blue Jays on Thursday afternoon. The veteran right-hander kept the red-hot Jays off the scoreboard, pitching 5 1/3 scoreless innings. He allowed three hits and three walks while striking out a pair in the 4-1 victory. Gallardo (11-9, 3.14 ERA) ran up his pitch count, as he left the game after throwing 101 pitches (58 strikes) without getting through the sixth inning. But he was able to dance out of danger, despite having just one clean inning on the day. Gallardo has now tossed three scoreless outings over his last five starts. But he made it past the sixth inning in just one of those games. Overall in August, Gallardo was excellent, going 4-0 with a 1.98 ERA in five starts.
