Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo was lifted prematurely from Sunday’s game against the Cardinals with a left oblique injury.
Gallardo was named to his first All-Star game just hours before taking the mound in St. Louis and might have to bow out of the Midsummer Classic if the injury proves the least bit serious. He will be evaluated by team physician Dr. William Raasch on Monday in Milwaukee before any kind of decision is made.
Gallardo, 24, is 8-4 this season with a 2.58 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP over his first 18 starts. He has fanned 122 batters in 111.2 innings. Needless to say, the Brewers’ already-shaky rotation will be in major trouble if he is forced to spend a few weeks on the disabled list.
At 37-45, Milwaukee is 9.5 games behind Cincinnati in the National League Central.
