Gallardo (8-8) pitched 4.1 innings and took the loss Sunday, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three in the loss to Seattle. The 2018 season couldn't have ended soon enough for Gallardo, who registered an abysmal 6.39 ERA and 58:47 K:BB across 94.1 innings this year. The 32-year-old ended the year on a five-start losing streak, allowing 19 runs in 21 innings during that span. Looking to 2019, Gallardo's best chance of securing a regular 25-man roster spot will likely be in a relief role.
Gallardo (8-7) took the loss Tuesday, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out two over 5.1 innings against the Angels. Gallardo was dealing through the first five frames, but he was ultimately charged with the loss after seeing the bullpen allow both of its inherited runners to come around to score in the sixth inning. He's taken the loss in four straight starts and now sports a bloated 6.40 ERA and middling 55:46 K:BB over 90 innings. He'll face Seattle in the regular-season finale Sunday.
Gallardo (8-6) allowed three runs on eight hits in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday, recording three strikeouts and three walks in five innings. Gallardo was in the unfortunate position of being matched up against Blake Snell. He threw three scoreless innings before giving up a three-spot in the fourth, but the Rangers couldn't get anything going against Snell and the Rays' bullpen. In 19 appearances (16 starts) this season Gallardo has a 6.59 ERA and 1.67 WHIP to go with a poor 53:43 K:BB in 84.2 innings. He's slated to take on the Angels in his next start in Los Angeles.
Gallardo (8-5) allowed six runs on six hits and one walk while striking out four over three innings and was tagged with the loss to the Angels on Wednesday. Four of the six hits allowed went for extra bases, including a two-run home run by rookie Jose Fernandez, which essentially ended Gallardo's night. Remember when Gallardo was 7-1 over his first nine starts in a Rangers uniform? That stretch was fueled by unsustainable run support, and his results have gone in the opposite direction since. He's lost four of his last five decisions and resembles a pitcher with a 5.94 ERA. He's next scheduled to face Tampa Bay at home Tuesday.
Gallardo (8-4) took the loss against the Athletics on Friday, allowing five earned runs on six hits and five walks over 4.1 innings. He recorded three strikeouts. It was another uninspiring outing for Gallardo, as he's now allowed multiple earned runs in seven straight starts. He owns a 6.22 ERA and 46:39 K:BB ratio over 76.2 innings this season and doesn't merit much fantasy consideration, even in deeper leagues. His next start is planned for Wednesday on the road against the Angels.
