Orioles | Yovani Gallardo to pitch rehab games

Mon, 30 May 2016 09:54:08 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) is expected to make at least two starts during his rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Gallardo is still a few weeks from returning to the Orioles starting rotation. He currently has a 7.00 ERA and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues until he is able to put a few good starts together.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo to throw sim game

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:40:36 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a two-inning simulated game Saturday, May 28, and he'll likely move to three or four innings in a second simulated game before embarking on a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: The O's are taking it slow with Gallardo, who is on the DL for the first time in his career. He is likely on the waiver wire in most mixed leagues after posting a 7.00 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in his four starts this year. Declining velocity and strikeout rates leave very little upside for the veteran right-hander even when fully healthy.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo to be evaluated Monday

Sun, 22 May 2016 18:53:21 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Sunday, May 22, his first since landing on the disabled list, and he will be evaluated Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Feel free to keep an eye on Gallardo as he works his way back, but he isn't a player you need to stash.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo to throw bullpen

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:58:37 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) will throw his first bullpen session Sunday, May 22, and he'll have another one Tuesday, May 24, if he doesn't have any setbacks. The plan is for him to throw a simulated game Friday, May 27. Manager Buck Showalter said Gallardo could go on a rehab assignment after that, and he wouldn't need more than one or two rehab starts before being activated.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo has been on the DL since April 23 for the first time in his career with an arm injury. He had an ugly 7.00 ERA before his injury and was throwing a career-low 88.3 mph with his fastball. Gallardo was likely dropped in most mixed leagues because of his lack of productivity, and he'll need to come back and prove his health before being added back. It'll be an uphill battle, however, for him to regain much fantasy relevance. His lack of strikeouts and diminished velocity are a big reason why.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo throwing this week

Tue, 17 May 2016 13:29:28 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) will throw from 120 feet Wednesday, May 18, and Thursday, May 19, and then move to a mound Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo was sporting an ugly 7.00 ERA with only 4.5 strikeouts per nine innings in his first four starts for the O's. He'll likely have a rotation spot to return to when he's ready, but how much can you really count on him to produce respectable numbers with a hitter-friendly park to call home? Save him for really deep mixed leagues and AL-only formats, and even then you'll want to play the matchups.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo feels good after session

Sat, 14 May 2016 20:24:09 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) said his shoulder felt "not restricted" after throwing on flat ground Saturday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Gallardo's recovery is on track, but with limited upside even when healthy, you can afford to wait until he returns to the mound before deciding if he is worth picking up.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo to throw on flat ground

Fri, 13 May 2016 19:21:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (bicep, shoulder) will make 25 throws from a distance of 60 feet on a flat surface Saturday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo is 1-1 with a 7.00 ERA through four starts this season and isn't worthy of being stashed outside of AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues because of decreased velocity and low strikeout totals. When healthy, the 30-year-old right-hander should only be used in daily fantasy contests when he has an extremely favorable matchup.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo will throw Saturday

Mon, 09 May 2016 14:12:10 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (bicep, shoulder) will throw Saturday, May 14, for the first time since being placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo isn't a stash priority in the majority of seasonal leagues and is best viewed as a low-end starter in deep mixed formats. It would be wise to be very selective with when you utilize the veteran. His strikeout rate decreased in three straight seasons leading into the year, and he has just nine punchouts through 18 innings over his four 2016 starts.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo not close to return

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 17:09:52 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (bicep, shoulder) has not resumed throwing and no timetable exists for his return from the disabled list, according to manager Buck Showalter. However, he is pain-free and doing cuff exercises.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo has gotten off to a slow start with the O's, going 1-1 with a 7.00 ERA through his first four starts, with 23 hits allowed over 18 innings. The 30-year-old right-hander is not worth stashing outside of AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Orioles | Tendonitis for Yovani Gallardo

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 11:27:49 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (bicep, shoulder) is just dealing with tendonitis after an MRI exam didn't show anything. The Orioles are encouraged, and Gallardo will likely receive an injection and rest.

Fantasy Tip: That's good news for Gallardo and his owners. It'll be his first stay on the DL in his career. He has started out with a 7.00 ERA in four starts for the O's this year, and Gallardo has allowed at least four earned runs in his last three starts. In standard mixed leagues, you may want to drop Gallardo in favor of healthier and more productive arms.
