Gallardo (shoulder) is expected to resume throwing soon, Rich Dubroff of CSN Mid Atlantic reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Everything has gone well thus far in Gallardo's rehab after landing on the disabled list with tendinitis in his throwing shoulder, so the next step will be to resume throwing. The initial timetable of 4-to-6 weeks would target a late May return, but a lot will depend on exactly when Gallardo is able to throw and how his shoulder responds to it.

Gallardo (shoulder) does not have a timetable for when he'll be able to resume throwing, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran right-hander was placed on the disabled list last weekend due to tendinitis in his throwing shoulder and he has yet to pick up a ball since landing on the DL. The initial timetable for his recovery was estimated at four weeks as of April 24, but until Gallardo resumes throwing, it will be difficult to pinpoint when exactly he'll be able to rejoin the rotation.

Gallardo (shoulder/biceps) had an MRI Monday that came back clean, Britt Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This is encouraging news for the right-hander, although he is still expected to be out for about four weeks. Gallardo will likely receive an injection and rest for the time being. While he's out, Tyler Wilson will likely stick around in the rotation.

Gallardo (shoulder/biceps) is expected to miss approximately four weeks, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gallardo left Friday's start after just 45 pitches and was later diagnosed with tendinitis in his right biceps and shoulder. He was placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday, then received a cortisone shot in his shoulder Sunday. Gallardo is still expected to travel with the team, but he'll likely be out beyond the 15-day minimum. Tyler Wilson will likely stick in the rotation, along with Chris Tillman, Ubaldo Jimenez, Mike Wright and Kevin Gausman (shoulder).

Gallardo was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday due to right shoulder and bicep tendinitis, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gallardo lasted just two innings (45 pitches) in his outing Friday, giving up four runs in the process before being pulled from the game. After the game, it was reported that he was battling tendinitis in his pitching shoulder and bicep, which partially explains his poor outing. He'll be on the disabled list for a minimum of 15 days, but the Orioles have yet to release a timeteable for his return. The Orioles activated Brian Matusz off the disabled list in a corresponding move Saturday.

Gallardo, who left his start Friday after just 45 pitches, was experiencing shoulder discomfort and will return to Baltimore on Saturday to have tests done, MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He gave up four runs on five hits and one walk with zero strikeouts in two innings against the Royals, but the early hook was apparently injury related, even though it could have just as easily been performance-based, considering he gave up a home run and two doubles over that brief span. Look for his status to be updated in the coming days, and he should be considered highly questionable for his next scheduled start. Vance Worley, who pitched one inning of relief Friday, or Tyler Wilson could be replacement options if Gallardo has to miss time.

Gallardo (2-0) allowed four runs, nine hits and two walks while striking out two and not factoring in the decision against the Rangers on Saturday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gallardo navigated himself well through six innings against his former team, but the wheels quickly came off in the seventh. Leading 4-2, the native of Mexico walked the leadoff hitter before promptly giving up a double that put men on second and third and brought the go-ahead run to the plate with no outs. Gallardo was relieved before any more damage could be done, but the bullpen crumbled, allowing the Rangers to score six in the frame and eventually go on to win the game 8-4. The 30-year-old righty may look enticing at 2-0, but his 5.63 ERA and 1.50 WHIP tell a more truthful story than his record.

Gallardo (1-1) allowed five runs on seven hits in a no-decision Monday against the Red Sox. He struck out three and walked one.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gallardo had allowed just two hits in his five-inning start last week, so the jump to seven allowed against Boston is startling. The righty has posted a sub-4.00 ERA in all but one season of his career, but posted career-worst marks in strikeouts and WHIP last year. He'll hope for results more in line with his first start when he takes the bump Saturday against the Rangers in Texas.

Gallardo (1-0) earned the win in his first start as an Oriole on Wednesday, striking out four to go with three walks, two hits and one run in five innings against the Twins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He didn't go deep into this one, but after Gallardo averaged less than six innings per start with Texas last season, that's not unexpected. It took him 89 pitches to work through those five frames, and that inefficiency coupled with much-declined bat-missing ability (thanks to reduced fastball velocity) should make him a relatively low-end fantasy starter. The 30-year-old is slated to make his next start Monday against Boston.

Gallardo breezed through five innings Thursday, allowing one hit with two strikeouts and no walks. He may wind up as the No. 2 starter, MASN Sports reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gallardo and Ubaldo Jimenez will slot in the Nos. 2 and 3 rotation slots, but there has been no formal announcement yet on what order the two will pitch in. For the spring, Gallardo allowed 15 runs in 13 innings. For the record, he was equally bad in spring training in 2015 when he allowed 15 runs in 13.1 innings. Like last year, Gallardo is a bit of a wild card.
