The Brewers have activated right-hander Yovani Gallardo from the 15-day disabled list. He’ll make his return to action tonight when he takes on the Reds at Miller Park.

Gallardo has been sidelined since he left a start on July 30 with left hamstring tightness. He managed to make it back in just over the minimum 15 days and did not require a minor league rehab assignment.

This has been a disappointing season for Gallardo, as he owns a 4.91 ERA through 21 starts and has posted the lowest strikeout rate (7.08 K/9) of his career. His average fastball velocity has dropped from 92.7 mph to 90.7 mph over the past three seasons while his swinging strike rate is tied for eighth-lowest among qualified starters.

Gallardo is still owed $11.25 million next season while his contract includes a $13 million club option for 2015. He could be had in a waiver deal this month, but the best scenario for the Brewers might be for him to finish the season strong and discuss potential trades during the offseason.

    Big time buy low candidate.

    Maybe his PED supplier left town? As a Brewer fan, I have no problem saying this guy is a joke and nowhere near a team ace.

    The Brewer’s organization seriously needs to weed out their coaching staff….particularly pitching coach and manager.
