Gallardo was credited with his first save of the season in Friday's 13-3 win over the Astros, firing a scoreless three innings in which he allowed two hits and a walk. He also recorded a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran right-hander's debut as a long reliever was a rousing success, although Gallardo still worked up to 50 pitches in just three frames. It was a prudent, low-leverage opportunity to roll out the 31-year-old in his new role, as the Mariners held a comfortable lead when he entered. While he naturally doesn't figure to see many save chances, Gallardo is likely to work multiple innings in the overwhelming majority of his outings, affording him what should be a fair amount of hold opportunities.

Gallardo will operate as a long reliever out of the Mariners' bullpen moving forward, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Recently recalled pitching prospect Andrew Moore will take Gallardo's turn in the rotation Wednesday, though it's unclear if he'll continue to do so after that. Gallardo has struggled as a starter this season, notching just four quality starts in 14 tries and compiling a 6.30 ERA and 57:32 K:BB across 75.2 innings. The 31-year-old hasn't appeared out of the bullpen since his rookie season with the Brewers, when he notched a 2.89 ERA across 9.1 innings (three appearances).

Gallardo is in danger of losing his rotation spot after the Mariners called up pitching prospect Andrew Moore, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo has been fairly ineffective this season, with Saturday's five-run outing summing up his struggles on the season. Due to this, Moore seems to be in line to replace either him or Sam Gaviglio in the rotation moving forward, although the needle appears to be leaning toward Gallardo at this point. No official word has come out yet, but Gallardo's upcoming start against the Tigers may be his last chance to salvage a starting role in Seattle.

Gallardo gave up five runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three in five innings Saturday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers jumped all over Gallardo for five runs in the first inning, but he was able to limit them to just one hit over his final four frames before being lifted after throwing 79 pitches (49 strikes). His 6.30 ERA is the third highest mark among 84 qualified starters, trailing only Bronson Arroyo (7.01) and Kevin Gausman (6.60). Meanwhile his 1.57 WHIP also ranks in the bottom 10 in MLB.

Gallardo (3-6) gave up three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five over six innings in a win over the Twins on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo allowed two runs in the first inning, but he cruised from there, allowing a total of five baserunners over his final five frames. It was his first quality start in nearly a month and just his fourth in 13 outings this season. The peripherals suggest Gallardo has been a run or so better than his 6.11 ERA would suggest, but that's still not saying much, and with a road matchup against the Rangers on tap for this weekend, there's little reason to give him serious consideration in mixed leagues.

Gallardo didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Twins, giving up five earned runs on six hits and two walks over seven innings. He struck out six.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo continues to befuddle fantasy owners and his team alike, as Wednesday's outing serving as his longest of the season and followed a start in which he'd been hit hard by the Rockies in a season-low three innings. The right-hander nevertheless gave up five earned runs for the second consecutive start, but also racked up his highest amount of strikeouts since April 29. The 31-year-old hasn't notched a victory since May 15, a matter he'll try to remedy in a Monday road start at Target Field versus the Twins.

Gallardo (2-6) allowed five runs on six hits and three walks while striking out just two batters over only three innings during Thursday's loss to Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

The outing has Gallardo up to a 6.24 ERA and 1.66 WHIP, and his 6.7 K/9 isn't moving the fantasy needle, either. The veteran is a desperation option in all settings at this stage of the game, and with a 4.52 FIP since moving to the American League in 2015, there is no reason to expect a bounce-back run from Gallardo. He lines up to face the Twins at Safeco Field in his next start.

Gallardo (2-5) allowed three earned runs on seven hits and six walks through 5.1 innings in Friday's 3-0 loss to Boston. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

The walks haunted Gallardo in this contest, raising his pitch count to a gaudy 112 through only 5.1 innings. Control issues have hurt Gallardo all season, as evidenced by his 4.1 BB/9. He remains a matchup streaming option at best. Gallardo will take the mound again on Thursday at home against Colorado.

Gallardo (2-4) gave up 10 runs (nine earned) on nine hits and two walks over 3.2 innings in Saturday's 16-1 loss to the White Sox. He struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo's disastrous night basically defied description and was doomed from the start, with Jose Abreu and Avisail Garcia touching him up with a run-scoring double and three-run home run, respectively, in the first. Garcia tagged him for a solo shot in the third as well, and matters completely unraveled in the next frame when five additional runs crossed the plate. The outing was Gallardo's shortest of the season, while the earned runs were easily the highest amount he's allowed on the campaign. The 31-year-old right-hander had actually produced quality starts in three of the previous five trips to the mound and had pitched reasonably well in the other two outings over that span. Gallardo will try to put the nightmarish results behind him when he takes on the Nationals on the road next Thursday.

Gallardo (2-3) allowed three runs on four hits (two home runs) while walking two and striking out three over 6.1 innings in Monday's 6-5 win over Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

It was an effective start for the veteran righty and helped lower his ERA to 4.53 on the year. He's given up at least three runs in six of his eight starts, though, and his uninspiring 32:17 K:BB in 45.2 innings shows how little upside he has left at 31 years of age. Gallardo has been pretty hittable for a while now, as evidenced by his 11.9 percent HR/FB. Consider him a shaky matchup play in deep mixed and AL-only affairs.
