Gallardo put on DL
Posted on: July 6, 2010 7:38 pm
The Brewers have placed right-hander Yovani Gallardo on the disabled list and the team activated left-hander Doug Davis.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel' s Anthony Witrado , Gallardo had more tightness in his left oblique area than he was comfortable with and was placed on the disabled list.
General manager Gord Ash told Witardo it was a "safety first" decision.
Gallardo will be available to come off the disabled list on July 20 in Pittsburgh. The Brewers had planned on bringing outfielder Lorenzo Cain to Milwaukee, but he never made it and the team needed to keep more pitchers on staff because of the recent strain on the bullpen.
Gallardo suffered the injury in the third inning of Sunday's game with the Cardinals, the same day he learned he'd made his first All-Star team. Manager Ken Macha said Monday that Gallardo would be unavailable for the All-Star Game , even if he wasn't placed on the DL.
