Orioles | Baltimore remains interested in Gallardo

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 11:29:39 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles remain interested in free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers), according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo went 13-11 with a 3.42 ERA in 33 starts in his first season with the Texas Rangers and could potentially serve as the ace in Baltimore. Camden Yards is hardly a pitcher's paradise, but the soon-to-be 30-year-old was able to fare better than most in the hitters' haven that is Rangers Ballpark last season. The one-time All-Star has won at least 13 games in six of his last seven years and was brilliant in his only career start in Camden Yards in 2015, tossing six scoreless innings.

MLB | Yovani Gallardo down to three

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 11:01:46 -0800

Free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) has narrowed his teams to sign with to the Baltimore Orioles, Houston Astros and Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: None of the three spots are great for his declining stuff. He'll be an SP3 or SP4 option, but his ratios may continue to suffer.

Orioles | Baltimore hesitant on pitchers

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 08:43:57 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles do not want to give up a first-round pick in order to sign free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers), according to general manager Dan Duquette. They also haven't made an offer to free-agent SP Doug Fister (Nationals) and don't think free-agent SP Cliff Lee (elbow) is ready to pitch.

Fantasy Tip: Fister is probably the the most intriguing pitcher of the three because of his heavy ground-ball profile as depth for your deep mixed rotation, but a move to the hitter-friendly environment of Camden Yards would kill a lot of optimism.

Rockies | Colorado eyeing Yovani Gallardo

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 13:16:57 -0800

Free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo's (Rangers) representatives are scheduled to meet with the Colorado Rockies Thursday, Jan. 21.

Fantasy Tip: While Gallardo won 13 games with a 3.42 ERA last season, he returned a worrisome 5.9 K/9 and 1.35 WHIP. A move to Coors Field couldn't be spun positively, either. View him as a potential late-round grab in deep mixed and single-universe leagues, and a potential spot start option in favorable matchups at FantasyScore and in the majority of yearly formats.

MLB | Jay Birds check in on Yovani Gallardo

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 14:18:22 -0800

Free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) is still of interest to the Toronto Blue Jays, and the two side were in contact this week, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo won 13 games with a 3.42 ERA through 33 starts in 2015, and given the hitter-friendly reputation of his home ballpark in Texas, it was a nice fantasy return. His 5.9 K/9 and 1.35 WHIP are concerning, though, and he should be viewed as a matchup play in FantasyScore or a late-round flier in deep mixed and single-universe fantasy formats.

Blue Jays | Yovani Gallardo of interest to Toronto

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 17:44:42 -0800

The Toronto Blue Jays have expressed interest in free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers).

Fantasy Tip: Despite their interest, it is unlikely that the Jays will sign him after devoting so much of their offseason spending to SPs J.A. Happ and Marco Estrada. Gallardo should be selected in the middle rounds of single-universe fantasy drafts and the later rounds of drafts for deep mixed leagues.

MLB | Orioles pursuing Scott Kazmir, Yovani Gallardo

Tue, 22 Dec 2015 16:46:07 -0800

Free agent SPs Scott Kazmir (Astros) and Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) are both actively being pursued by the Baltimore Orioles, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo has registered an ERA below 4.00 in six of the last seven seasons, proving last year he can survive in the American League after a solid campaign with the Rangers. Kazmir has also been very steady throughout his big league career and is coming off a year that saw him post a cool 3.10 ERA in stints with the Athletics and Astros. If one of them were to head to Baltimore, their ceiling might not be as high, but it's hard to argue with their consistent track records.

Royals | KC eyeing two FA starters

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 10:20:08 -0800

Free-agent SPs Wei-Yin Chen (Orioles) and Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) are receiving interest from the Kansas City Royals. Chen is likely the top left-handed free-agent pitcher still on the market, so they push more for him. Kansas City is also interested in free-agent SP Scott Kazmir (Astros).

Fantasy Tip: Chen is certainly an underrated starter both in real life and in fantasy, and a move to KC would be a boost to his fantasy value moving away from hitter-friendly Camden Yards. Something similar could be said about Gallardo after he pitched his home games in one of the best all-around hitter's parks in baseball. Look for both to present nice buying opportunities in fantasy drafts next spring.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo has dialogue with O's

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 10:01:34 -0800

Free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) hasn't received an offer from the Baltimore Orioles, but there has been dialogue between the two sides.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo isn't the pitcher he was the first few years coming up, but he's a decent pitcher for the middle of your fantasy rotation.

Astros | HOU looking at Yovani Gallardo

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 13:33:58 -0800

Free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) is drawing interest from the Houston Astros, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo had a decent season with Texas and would not be a bad option for the Houston rotation. If he goes to Houston, Gallardo would be worth a middle-round AL selection and a mid-to-late round pickup in mixed leagues.
