Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Takes fifth straight loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Takes seventh loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Takes loss against the Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Loses second straight Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Suffers loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Records eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo (8-3) allowed three earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out one across five innings to earn the win Saturday against the Twins.

Gallardo wasn't dominant but limited his mistakes and took advantage of a subpar Twins lineup. While he has just 5.35 K/9, Gallardo has managed to limit runs effectively, posting a 4.07 ERA across 42 post-break innings. He'll be tested in his next start, which will come Friday at Oakland.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Allows three runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo (7-3) pitched five innings Sunday, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks in the 3-1 loss to the Giants. He struck out three and took the loss.

Gallardo wasn't at his best, but his offense didn't do him any favors either. The 32-year-old now owns an unsightly 6.01 ERA despite his 7-3 record after dropping two of his last three outings. Gallardo will carry a 42:33 K:BB into next Sunday's start against the Twins.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Pitches well in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo allowed two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings in a no-decision against the Angels on Sunday.

Gallardo was as good as he's been in any outing this season but didn't get the run support that typically shows up for him. He entered the game with a 10.65 run support average in his starts since June 23 -- the highest in the majors during that span. His next start depends on a few factors: the health of Bartolo Colon (back) and Mike Minor (back), whether manager Jeff Banister plans on sticking with the six-man rotation, and how the manager wants to use Thursday's off-day. Gallardo is expected to pitch one of the weekend games in San Francisco.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Gets start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo will start Sunday's game against the Angels.

The Rangers initially intended to start Bartolo Colon in the series finale, but those plans were scrapped after the latter experienced back stiffness. Since the Rangers have been running out a six-man rotation lately, Gallardo will be available to take the hill on four days' rest, which likely means that he won't face any restrictions with his pitch count.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Allows four runs in loss to Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo (7-2) allowed four runs in six hits and three walks across 3.1 innings Tuesday while taking the loss against the Diamondbacks. He recorded one strikeout.

Gallardo gave up a solo home run in the first inning before allowing a run on two hits in the second. He cruised through the third inning but was pulled in a two-run fourth after allowing four straight batters to reach. Gallardo had won each of his previous four outings and was coming off a quality start versus Seattle, but this dud performance was a reminder that the veteran still owns a 6.39 ERA on the season. His next start should come next week against the Athletics.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Notches fourth straight win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo (7-1) picked up the win Wednesday against the Mariners, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks through six innings. He struck out two.

It was a nice bounce-back effort from Gallardo after the veteran allowed five runs in 5.1 innings his last time out (though he still picked up the win). The 32-year-old now owns a solid 2.78 ERA across his last four outings, all of which have been victories. He's still walking too many hitters -- 5.16 BB/9 over that four-start stretch -- so it wouldn't be surprising to see him pitch to something close to his season ERA (6.11) moving forward. His next outing will come Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Gets win despite five earned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo (6-1) allowed five earned runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out four across 5.1 innings to earn the win Thursday against the Orioles.

Gallardo received tremendous run support -- the Rangers scored 10 runs in the first two innings -- and benefited by winning his sixth game of the season. That was the biggest highlight of his line as he surrendered two two-run home runs that proved to be most of the damage against him. The right-hander has enjoyed phenomenal run support since joining the Rangers, who average 10.0 runs for him per start. Gallardo has allowed multiple walks in six of his eight starts this season, which has been a big factor in his 6.51 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 47 innings.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Blanks Astros in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo (5-1) picked up the win in Friday's 11-2 rout of the Astros, allowing two hits and four walks over 5.1 scoreless innings while striking out five.

Although he threw only 50 of his 97 pitches for strikes, Gallardo still held his opponent off the board completely for the second straight outing. The veteran still has a poor 4.81 ERA and 24:17 K:BB in 39.1 innings over seven starts since joining the Rangers, but with Cole Hamels now a Cub and the team's farm system lacking in pitching prospects, he'll remain in the rotation as long as he's delivering results. Gallardo will make his next start Thursday at home against the Orioles.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Earns win with six shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo (4-1) tossed six scoreless innings Sunday, yielding four walks and three hits while striking out one in the 5-0 win over Cleveland.

It was Gallardo's first start of the year in which he allowed less than three earned runs, but the Rangers are now 5-1 in his starts. Prior to Sunday's scoreless performance, Gallardo had given up 21 earned runs in just 28 innings since being acquired by Texas. The 32-year-old still owns an ugly 7.18 ERA and 21:17 K:BB in 36.1 innings. Gallardo will see a tough matchup in Houston on Friday.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Allows six runs Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo (3-1) took his first loss of the season Tuesday against Boston, allowing six runs on seven hits over five innings. He struck out two and walked two.

Gallardo had a disastrous third inning, as the Red Sox scored five runs on six hits, but he was able to recover enough to last through five innings. The veteran right-hander was respectable over his last few outings for the Rangers, but facing the Red Sox's lineup was always a tough proposition. The 32-year-old has a 8.60 ERA and 1.71 WHIP with a 20:13 K:BB over 30.1 innings this season, and has likely made his last start prior to the All-Star break.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Picks up third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo moved to 3-0 on the season with another win Thursday against the Tigers. He allowed three runs over 5.1 innings while recording two strikeouts and one walk.

The Rangers gave Gallardo solid run support, scratching all seven runs across while he was still on the mound. Gallardo was shaky in the fourth inning when he gave up three runs, but he managed to bounce back with a scoreless fifth inning. He has surrendered at least three earned runs in each of his four starts and he's made it past the fifth inning just once in those outings.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Strikes out seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo (2-0) allowed three runs on four hits and a walk with seven strikeouts through 7.1 innings in a win Friday against the White Sox.

The Rangers gave Gallardo 10 runs in the first three innings and he cruised behind that support. He induced 12 swinging strikes on just 90 pitches and got 10 groundball outs to silence the White Sox bats. His money pitch was the slider, which induced six swinging strikes on just 24 offerings. Gallardo probably earned himself a few more starts with this outing, so expect him to take his next turn Thursday against the Tigers.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Earns win despite unimpressive start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo allowed four runs on a pair of walks and six hits Saturday against the Twins, striking out just three in 5.1 innings, but it was enough to earn his first win of the season.

Gallardo allowed two-run homers to Eddie Rosario and Logan Morrison, but his offense picked him up with a six-run second inning. He's now allowed nine earned runs in 10.1 innings over two starts this season, hardly a promising return, and his ERA sits at an ugly 12.08 in 12.2 total innings. He's expected to get another chance to start Friday against the White Sox.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Allows five runs Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallardo tossed five innings Sunday, allowing five runs on six hits and three walks, but he didn't factor into the decision during Texas' 13-12 win over Colorado. He struck out four batters and gave up one home run.

After a horrid 30.86 ERA in three relief appearances with the Reds, Gallardo made his first start of the season with Texas in this one, and he didn't impress. DJ LeMahieu took him deep for a leadoff homer to start the day to start the rocky effort. Luckily for Gallardo, Jon Gray wasn't much better on the other side, so Gallardo finished the day with a no-decision. The 32-year-old should take the mound in Minnesota next weekend.

Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Added to roster ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers selected Gallardo's contract from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Rockies.

Texas freed up a spot on the 40-man roster for Gallardo by moving Doug Fister (knee) to the 60-day disabled list and opened up a spot on the active roster by optioning reliever Brandon Mann to Round Rock. Gallardo boasts plenty of experience with 289 career MLB starts on his ledger, but with ERAs north of 5.00 in every season since 2015, he'll probably need to turn in a few quality outings in a row before fantasy players are comfortable investing in him. After being cut loose by the Reds earlier this season, Gallardo inked a minor-league deal with Texas and reported to Round Rock, where he supplied a 3.81 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 40:14 K:BB across 49.2 innings.
