Gallardo (3-1) took his first loss of the season against Boston on Tuesday by allowing six runs on seven hits over five innings. He struck out two and walked two.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo had a disastrous third inning, as the Red Sox scored five runs on six hits, but he was able to recover enough to last through five innings. The veteran right-hander was respectable over his last few outings for the Rangers, but facing the Red Sox's lineup was always a tough proposition. The 32-year-old has a 8.60 ERA and 1.71 WHIP with a 20:13 K:BB over 30.1 innings this season, and has likely made his last start prior to the All-Star break.

Gallardo allowed four runs on a pair of walks and six hits (two of them homers) Saturday against the Twins, striking out just three in 5.1 innings, but it was enough to earn his first win of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo allowed a pair of two-run homers to Eddie Rosario and Logan Morrison, but his offense picked him up with a six-run second inning. He's now allowed nine earned runs in 10.1 innings over two starts this season, hardly a promising return, and his ERA sits at an ugly 12.08 in 12.2 total innings. He's expected to get another chance to start Friday against the White Sox.

Gallardo tossed five innings Sunday, allowing five runs on six hits and three walks in a 13-12 win over Colorado. He struck out four batters and gave up one home run.

EDGE Analysis

After a horrid 30.86 ERA in three relief appearances with the Reds, Gallardo made his first start of the season with Texas in this one, and he wasn't very impressive. DJ LeMahieu took him deep for a leadoff homer to start the day and things wouldn't get much better. Luckily for Gallardo, Jon Gray wasn't much better on the other side, so he finished the day with a no-decision. The 32-year-old should take the mound in Minnesota next weekend.

The Rangers selected Gallardo's contract from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Texas freed up a spot on the 40-man roster for Gallardo by moving Doug Fister (knee) to the 60-day disabled list and opened up a spot on the active roster by optioning reliever Brandon Mann to Round Rock. Gallardo boasts plenty of experience with 289 career MLB starts on his ledger, but with ERAs north of 5.00 in every season since 2015, he'll probably need to turn in a few quality outings in a row before fantasy players are comfortable investing in him. After being cut loose by the Reds earlier this season, Gallardo inked a minor-league deal with Texas and reported to Round Rock, where he supplied a 3.81 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 40:14 K:BB across 49.2 innings.

Gallardo will take the mound Sunday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo will make his first major-league start since being designated for assignment by the Reds on April 10 after three outings with the club. The veteran was scooped up by Texas just a few days later, and has logged a 3.81 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with a 40:14 K:BB for Triple-A Round Rock across 49.2 innings in the past two months.

Gallardo is among the pool of candidates to fill in for injured starter Doug Fister (knee), Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fister was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a knee injury that is expected to keep him sidelined for longer than the minimum. That means his replacement could get multiple turns in the rotation. That the Rangers, 15.5 games behind in the wild card playoff race, are considering the 32-year-old Gallardo speaks volumes about the state of the team's pitching prospects at the upper levels of the organization. Gallardo, who pitched for Texas in 2015, has a 3.81 ERA and allowed just one home run over 49.2 innings for Triple-A Fresno in the Pacific Coast League.

Gallardo signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

After being released twice already this season, the veteran hurler will return to Texas after spending the 2015 season with them. Gallardo is expected to report to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, but he could head to the big leagues if an injury strikes the rotation or the bullpen depending on how the Rangers opt to use him.

Gallardo cleared waivers and became a free agent Thursday after rejecting an outright assignment.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran hurler was designated for assignment Tuesday, and in an unsurprising development, decided to test the open market instead of heading to the minors. Gallardo will now likely wait for a major-league deal to come his way, though his above-5.00 ERA the past three years hardly makes him an attractive commodity.

Gallardo was designated for assignment by the Reds on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo was absolutely shelled in his first two appearances for Cincinnati, so the Reds will simply remove him from the 40-man roster to make room for younger, higher-upside arms. The veteran will now be exposed to waivers, though it's hard to see him getting claimed by any teams given his recent struggles. To replace him in the big leagues, Tanner Rainey was called up from Triple-A.

Gallardo gave up two runs on three hits and a walk in his Reds debut Sunday against the Nats.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo turned a two-run deficit in the seventh inning into a four-run gulf, too much for the Reds to overcome even as they rallied in the eighth and ninth innings. Right now he's working out of the bullpen, and with Brandon Finnegan due back in a week, he may stay in that capacity.
