Gallardo (6-8) gave up an earned run on two hits and four walks over six innings in Friday's 8-1 victory over the Yankees. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo thus wraps up his up-and-down season with a pair of strong starts, giving up only three earned runs over the 12 innings encompassing his last pair of appearances. The veteran posted three quality starts over his last five trips to the mound, but wraps up the 2016 campaign with his second losing season in the last three, as well as a career-high 1.58 WHIP and 5.42 ERA.

Gallardo didn't factor into the decision Friday versus the D-backs, giving up two earned runs on six hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty bounced back with a strong effort after getting blasted by the Rays in his last start to the tune of six earned runs on seven hits and two walks over 3.1 innings. The outing was only Gallardo's third quality start in his last seven trips to the mound, and he's also dropped five of his last six decisions. The 30-year-old will try to finish a difficult 2016 with a victory against the Yankees next Friday.

Gallardo (5-8) was hammered over 3.1 innings in Thursday's loss to the Rays. He allowed six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven.

EDGE Analysis

While Gallardo has struggled this season, his biggest problem has been escaping the first inning unscathed. Thursday was no exception. The righty allowed a homer in the first for the fourth straight start and has allowed 21 runs in the first inning in his 21 starts. It's 10 more runs than he's allowed in any other inning this year. Gallardo will look to rebound when he makes his next start against Boston on Wednesday.

Gallardo (5-7) tossed five innings against the Rays on Tuesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk while striking out five and earning the win.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo kept the Rays in check Tuesday, and rode a six-run Orioles fourth inning to his fifth victory of the season. Gallardo isn't the strikeout artist he once was, with just 75 strikeouts over 20 starts on the year, but he managed a strikeout an inning Tuesday. With a 5.44 ERA and 1.60 WHIP, Gallardo remains a risky play going forward.

Gallardo (4-7) threw six innings of three-run ball while allowing five hits and two walks Wednesday against the Blue Jays, but received the loss. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo bounced back from a brutal start his last time out where he didn't make it out of the second inning. Yet he was outdone by Toronto starter Aaron Sanchez on Wednesday, who allowed just one run over his six innings. Gallardo lowered his ERA to 5.62 with the start, but still holds a miserable 1.62 WHIP and a 65:52 K:BB ratio. Despite the solid outing and Orioles' powerful offense, Gallardo remains a high-risk play moving forward.

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.
