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.
