Gallardo set to return from the disabled list Thursday

Jul 17, 2010, 8:05 PM EDT

Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo suffered a minor strain in his left oblique during a July 4 start against the Cardinals and hit the 15-day disabled list one day later.  It’s been less than two weeks, and we already have a return date for the Milwaukee ace.

According to the Associated Press, Gallardo will be activated from the disabled list on Thursday evening for a start in Pittsburgh against the Pirates. 

The 24-year-old right-hander has posted an 8-4 record, a 2.58 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP in 18 starts for the Brewers this season.  Gallardo has also tallied 122 strikeouts in 111
2/3 innings while issuing only 48 walks.  He was rightfully named to the National League All-Star Team in mid-July, but he had to decline the invitation due to the minor oblique injury.

The Brewers currently sit nine games behind the Cardinals and Reds in the NL Central with a 41-50 record.

    Go brewers. I wish I had something insightful to say about this but I don’t.
