Rangers | Opening day handed to Yovani Gallardo

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 14:57:03 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo will start opening day Monday, April 6, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) draws a new-look Oakland lineup in a favorable pitching environment. At his price, consider him a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests, just remember he is no longer a strikeout force like in the early days of his career. In mixed seasonal leagues, Gallardo is likely best utilized as a streaming option in favorable matchups.

Rangers | Yovani Gallardo expected to start OD

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 14:21:36 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo is expected to start the opening day game against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo, who posted a 3.51 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with the Milwaukee Brewers in 32 starts (192 1/3 innings) in 2014, will essentially be the team's ace with Yu Darvish (elbow) facing Tommy John surgery. The move to hitter-friendly Texas and the AL isn't an appealing move for his fantasy value, especially when considering his K/9 took another dip last year to 6.8. Gallardo isn't an attractive fantasy piece in standard 12-team leagues.

Rangers | Yovani Gallardo talks maturation

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 14:43:47 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo still possesses the same velocity he did as a rookie in 2007, but his arsenal has evolved. He leaned on his slider 24.6% of the time last season but only 7.3% as a rookie, and he has added a sinking fastball to his repertoire which lead to fewer strikeouts and more ground balls. His ground-ball rate climbed to 52.4% last season and it was just 37.9% as a rookie. "The older you get, the more things you figure out on how to get hitters out," Gallardo said.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo's durability is perhaps his greatest asset to fantasy owners, but he also posted the lowest ERA (3.51) of his career in 2014, which was a somewhat-rebound season. Projecting forward, the increased ground-ball rate should play favorably at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, however, he is still just a late-round flier in mixed leagues with the move to the American League and a hitter-friendly ballpark.
