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.
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
He only needed nine strikeouts to pass Ben Sheets for all-time strikeout leader for the Brewers. Maybe he thought it was runs allowed. Seems to be good for two starts and then stinks it up every third. Good thing he's facing the Padres at Petco for his next outing to keep the pattern going.Analyst: Howard Bender
You would think that to be a relatively easy feat since Ben Sheets was broken almost 80-percent of the time. We wish Gallardo nothing but the best in his quest to break this record, but fantasy owners only care if he can do it in one game and give their overall numbers a bigger boost. Gallardo hasn't struck out nine or more batters in a game since August 28, 2012.Analyst: Howard Bender
Gallardo has had his ups and downs of late, but has now allowed one run or less in three of his last five starts while allowing eight runs total in the remaining two trips to the mound. Although the inconsistency can sometimes be difficult to deal with, he has managed to keep a respectable stat line (3.44 ERA and 1.23 WHIP) over his 24 starts, while owning a respectable strikeout rate (115 K in 146.2 IP). He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Dodgers this weekend. Analyst: Matthew Beck
