Latest Update Yovani Gallardo suffers 10th loss Sat Sep, 13, 10:45 PM
Has an explosive fastball, a big over-the-top curve, plenty of mound presence and the ability to notch strikeouts by the bushels. When on his game, he's very difficult to hit.
Flaws: : Gets into trouble when he starts walking too many hitters, which eventually forces him to give in. Can occasionally lack consistency, as well. Occasionally, he loses the strike zone.
Despite taking the loss here, Gallardo rebounded nicely from his last two starts which were, for a lack of a better word, atrocious. It's been a season of ups and downs for Gallardo and while this outing left his ERA at 3.59 for the year, the reduced strikeout rate and the rising FIP make him a tough one to trust. He'll face the Pirates his next time out.Analyst: Howard Bender
Gallardo has let up five earned runs in his past two starts and has been struggling along with the whole Brewers team. Gallardo has only lasted 8.2 innings in his last two starts and the other stats aren't any better. During that stretch he has allowed 17 hits, 10 earned runs, four walks, and has only struck out five batters. Proceed with caution.Analyst: Colby Conway
The romp lifted Gallardo's season ERA from 3.26 to 3.43. Gallardo is having a similar season to Mat Latos in that the peripheral stats look much worse than surface ones. His stuff is clearly on the decline and he should be avoided at all cost this Sunday when facing his achilles heel, the Cardinals.Analyst: Spencer Silva
Gallardo did what he should do against a week lineup. He will face another weak lineup in the Cubs in his next start.Analyst: Steve Pimental
