Gallardo (4-6) gave up eight runs (seven earned) on six hits and a walk over 1.1 innings in Friday's 14-4 loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran right-hander was beat up early and often by a resurgent Yankees offense, beginning with a two-run homer by Mark Teixeira in the first inning. Gallardo has now dropped three straight decisions, although Friday's outing was easily his worst of that trio of starts. He'll look to turn things around against another tough draw in the Blue Jays next Wednesday.

Gallardo (4-5) allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits and three walks with three strikeouts during Sunday's 5-3 loss to Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the loss Sunday, Gallardo has pitched much better as of late, allowing no more than three earned runs in each of his last four starts for the Orioles. The 30-year-old right-hander lines up to face the Yankees in his next start Friday.

Gallardo gave up three runs on four hits and five walks in five innings while striking out two in Tuesday's no-decision against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo was able to pitch around control problems for a while, but was finally punished on a Mookie Betts three-run homer in the fifth. It's easy to see why the veteran has managed to pitch at least seven innings only once in 16 starts given his atrocious 4.97 BB/9. Things could get ugly for Gallardo in his next start Sunday against a Houston team that draws the fifth-most walks in the league.

Gallardo (4-4) limited the A's to a single run over six innings Wednesday, but was stuck with a hard-luck loss. He struck out six while allowing four hits and two walks.

EDGE Analysis

That's about as sharp an outing as you'll see from Gallardo these days -- his first time allowing just one run since way back on April 6, his very first start of the season. In fact, there's a strong argument to be made for this as his finest start of the year. Gallardo's now tossed quality starts in three of his last four outings, but remains a bottom-of-the-barrel fantasy starter, especially with the Red Sox on tap for his next start Tuesday.

Gallardo (4-3) tossed six quality innings to beat the White Sox on Friday. He allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three.

EDGE Analysis

Friday marked the veteran's first win since June 29, a span of six starts (all in July) in which Gallardo was tagged with two losses. His efforts earned him his third quality start of the season, and the second in his last three outings. Most impressive was that Gallardo issued just one walk over his six innings, something he hadn't done since August of last season. The right-hander's next start will be on the road Wednesday against the A's.

Gallardo's start has been pushed back to Friday as Wade Miley will make his debut for the Orioles on Thursday, the Baltimore Sun's Eduardo Encina reports.

EDGE Analysis

Instead of facing a loaded Rangers offense on Thursday, Gallardo will face the White Sox in Chicago on Friday. Gallardo's 5.70 ERA and 48:38 K:BB in 66.1 innings makes him a pitcher to avoid in most formats regardless of the matchup.

Gallardo (3-3) gave up five earned runs on five hits and five walks over 4.1 innings in Saturday's 9-1 loss to the Blue Jays. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran right-hander had monumental struggles with control, throwing 96 pitches in just over four frames, with only half of those finding the strike zone. However, it wasn't until the fifth inning that the Blue Jays actually got to Gallardo. Devin Travis got things started with a 412-foot shot to right center, and Edwin Encarnacion added an RBI double three batters later. After Mychal Givens relieved Gallardo, he issued a bases-loaded walk to Troy Tulowitzki and a two-RBI double to Russell Martin that plated inherited runners, placing those runs on the starter's ledger as well. The 30-year-old has now gone six straight decisions without a win, while giving up 20 earned runs and walking a whopping 22 batters in 31.2 innings over that span. If he hangs on to this rotation spot, Gallardo will try to right the ship against the White Sox next Friday.

Gallardo limited the Rockies to two runs over 6.2 innings, allowing five hits, walking two and striking out six.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo's start on Monday lowered his ERA to 5.37, the lowest point it's been since his second start of the season. His six strikeouts matched his season high. The veteran righty will look to build on his strong start when he takes the mound Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Gallardo (3-2) gave up four runs on five hits and four walks over seven innings in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

After a 2015 in which Gallardo lucked into a 3.42 ERA despite a hideous 1.42 WHIP, his birds have come home to roost this year. He's lost whatever semblance of control he once had, as he's walked four in three straight starts and owns a brutal 37:31 K:BB over 55.1 innings, and his ratios reflect that. In fact, he's only allowed two or fewer runs in three of 11 starts. Unfortunately for the O's and their fans, there aren't many options around to displace Gallardo in the rotation, although it wouldn't be surprising to see them make a trade.

Gallardo (3-1) allowed two runs on six hits and four walks while striking out two over five innings, but received no decision Saturday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo shut down the Angels for five innings, but gave up a pair of runs in the six innings, leaving the contest with a 2-1 deficit, but the offense later took him off the hook for a potential loss. He's only fired one quality start in his nine outings this year, and his ERA is at 5.82. He'll make his next start after the All-Star break.
