Gallardo (8-6) allowed three runs on eight hits in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday, recording three strikeouts and three walks in five innings.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo had the unfortunate position of being matched-up against Blake Snell on Tuesday, and he threw three scoreless innings before giving up a three-spot in the fourth, but the Rangers couldn't get anything going against Snell and the Rays bullpen. In 19 appearances (16 starts) this season Gallardo has a 6.59 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP to go with a rather poor 53:43 K:BB in 84.2 innings. He's slated to take on the Angels in his next start in Los Angeles.

Gallardo (8-5) allowed six runs on six hits and one walk while striking out four over three innings and was tagged with the loss to the Angels on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Four of the six hits allowed went for extra bases, including a two-run home run by rookie Jose Fernandez, which essentially ended Gallardo's night. Remember when Gallardo was 7-1 over his first nine starts in a Rangers uniform? That start was fueled by unsustainable run support, and his results have gone in the opposite direction since. He's lost four of his last five decisions and resembles very much a pitcher with a 5.94 ERA. He's next scheduled to face Tampa Bay at home Tuesday.

Gallardo (7-3) pitched five innings Sunday, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks in the 3-1 loss to the Giants. He struck out three and took the loss.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo wasn't at his best, but his offense didn't do him any favors either. The 32-year-old now owns an unsightly 6.01 ERA despite his 7-3 record after dropping two of his last three outings. Gallardo will carry a 42:33 K:BB into next Sunday's start against the Twins.

Gallardo allowed two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings in a no-decision against the Angels on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo was as good as he's been in any outing this season, but didn't get the run support that typically shows up for him. He entered the game with a 10.65 run support average in his starts since June 23 -- the highest in the majors during that span. His next start depends on a few factors: the health of Bartolo Colon (back) and Mike Minor (back), whether manager Jeff Banister plans on sticking with the six-man rotation, and how the manager wants to use Thursday's off-day. Gallardo is expected to pitch one of the weekend games in San Francisco.

Gallardo will start Sunday's game against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers initially intended to start Bartolo Colon in the series finale, but those plans were scrapped after the latter experienced back stiffness. Since the Rangers have been running out a six-man rotation lately, Gallardo will be available to take the hill on four days' rest, which likely means that he won't face any restrictions with his pitch count.

Gallardo (7-1) picked up the win Wednesday against the Mariners, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks through six innings. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

It was a nice bounce-back effort from Gallardo after the veteran allowed five runs in 5.1 innings his last time out (though he still picked up the win). The 32-year-old now owns a solid 2.78 ERA across his last four outings, all of which have been victories. He's still walking too many hitters -- evidenced by his 5.16 BB/9 over that four-start stretch -- so it wouldn't be surprising to see him regress towards his season ERA (6.11) moving forward. His next outing will come Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Gallardo (6-1) allowed five earned runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out four across 5.1 innings to earn the win Thursday against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Gallardo received tremendous run support -- the Rangers scored 10 runs in the first two innings -- and benefited by winning his sixth game of the season. That was the biggest highlight of his line as he surrendered two two-run home runs that proved to be most of the damage against him. Gallardo has allowed multiple walks in six of his eight starts this season, which has been a big factor in his 6.51 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 47 innings.

Gallardo (4-1) tossed six scoreless innings Sunday, yielding four walks and three hits while striking out one in the 5-0 win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

It was Gallardo's first start of the year where he allowed less than three earned runs, but the Rangers are now 5-1 in his starts. Prior to Sunday's scoreless performance, Gallardo had given up 21 earned runs in just 28 innings since being acquired by Texas. The 32-year-old still owns an ugly 7.18 ERA and 21:17 K:BB in 36.1 innings. Gallardo will see a tough matchup in Houston on Friday.

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.
