    • Yovani Gallardo: Heads to free agency
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gallardo will become a free agent after the Mariners declined to exercise his $13 million club option for 2018, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. This isn't all too surprising, given the amount of money Gallardo was owed coupled with his unsightly 5.72 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over 22 starts (130.2 innings) last season. He may need to settle for a 'prove-it' deal given his recent drop off in performance; Gallardo has a combined 5.57 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over the past two seasons after posting a combined 3.66 ERA across his first nine big league campaigns. Still, he's expected to find work elsewhere given his previous success as a major-league starter.

    • Gallardo allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks over 3.2 innings in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Astros. He also recorded a strikeout. Shifted back to the bullpen Sept. 5 for scenarios such as Friday's -- when returning starter James Paxton (pectoral) only lasted 1.1 innings -- Gallardo faltered, allowing RBI singles to Josh Reddick and Cameron Maybin. The veteran right-hander had worked a scoreless inning in his bullpen return last Sunday, but he'll likely be deployed in a multi-inning capacity more often than not for what's left of the regular season.

    • Mariners' Yovani Gallardo: Shifted to bullpen
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gallardo has been removed from the starting rotation and shifted to a bullpen role, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. He'll no longer make his scheduled start over the weekend; Andrew Moore will step into the rotation Wednesday, pushing Mike Leake back to start in Gallardo's place Friday. This isn't all too surprising, as the 31-year-old struggled to a 6.23 ERA across eight starts since rejoining the rotation July 23. He'll serve in a long-relief role for the Mariners down the stretch.

    • Gallardo gave up two runs on five hits -- including two home runs -- and two walks while striking out two over three innings in a no-decision against the A's on Saturday. The 31-year-old needed 80 pitches to record nine outs. He once again gave up multiple home runs -- he's served up multiple homers in five of his last eight outings -- lifting his ERA to 5.79. That would rank as the third-worst mark among starters if Gallardo had enough innings to qualify (he spent a couple weeks in the bullpen in June). Assuming he stays in the rotation, Gallardo will face the Angels his next time out.

    • Mariners' Yovani Gallardo: Takes another loss Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gallardo (5-9) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks over 6.1 innings in taking Sunday's loss to the Rays. Gallardo's season-long struggles continued Sunday, as two of the five hits he gave up were home runs. Coming off Sunday's outing, his ERA is now sitting at 5.75. Hard times could continue for Gallardo, as his next start is set to come Saturday in New York against a hard-hitting Yankees club.
