RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

After seeing his numbers decline two years in a row, Gallardo bounced back in 2014 with the lowest ERA of his career. He limited runs better than he ever had before and also finished with the lowest walk rate of his career, but Gallardo won just eight games and finished with the lowest strikeout rate of his career (6.8 K/9). At this stage of his career, the lack of strikeouts appears to be the byproduct of a new approach, as he's hovered around 7.0 K/9 in each of the past two seasons while inducing more groundballs (career-high 50.8% GB% in 2014) and thereby limiting the damage of home runs in the process. Traded to Texas in January, Gallardo will bring his durable arm to a more challenging home park, but his new approach may largely offset the change.

2014

Though Gallardo was considered the Brewers’ ace heading into 2013, he hardly pitched like one for most of the year, finishing July with a 4.91 ERA. Pitching for Team Mexico in the WBC may have hurt his stamina and played a role in his struggles, as after landing on the disabled list in early August for two weeks, he averaged nearly an inning more per start and also posted a 2.41 ERA over his final eight games. Gallardo’s sharp drop in strikeout rate last season is concerning, but he should benefit from a normal spring training in 2014, and he has still averaged nearly a punchout per inning for his career.

2013

Gallardo turned in another consistent season in 2012, making 30 starts and striking out at least 200 batters for the fourth consecutive year. He has yet to put together a top-five Cy Young season, but he has also been among the most effective pitchers in the National League since breaking in with the Brewers in 2007. Another productive season from Gallardo should be expected as he enters his age-27 season, but the lingering concern here surrounds his inability to maintain the improved walk rate he showed in 2011.

2012

Gallardo had what was arguably the best season of his career in 2011. He was able to reduce his walk rate while keeping his strikeout rate at one per inning. His home-run rate jumped up from 2010, but keeping guys off base helped alleviate the damage of those long balls. Gallardo will again be one of Milwaukee's top starting pitchers in 2012, and he'll make a run at reaching the 200-strikeout mark for the fourth consecutive season.

2011

Gallardo pitched very well in 2010, but it was still somewhat below expectations. Some of that may be due to a bit of bad luck since his ERA was well above his FIP of 3.14. Gallardo decreased his walk rate, cut his home-run rate in half and increased his GB/FB rate over the 2009 season, but ended with a higher ERA. He also struck out 200 batters and could push 20 wins this season if he gets a few breaks.

2010

Gallardo had a solid season in 2009, striking out 204 batters with a 3.73 ERA. He wore down a little bit in the second half of the season, but that shouldn't have been unexpected for a young pitcher who only threw 24 innings the previous season. He needs to cut down on his walks before he can move up to an elite level, though he's still a very good pitcher on any fantasy team and has a high upside as the ace in Milwaukee.

2009

Gallardo tore the ACL in his right knee at the end of April and didn't return until late September. Overall, he made four starts with a 1.88 ERA while striking out 20 in 24 innings. He'll turn 23 years old this offseason and may be flying under the fantasy radar of more than a few people. He's got top of the rotation potential and you may be able to get him at a discount because of his injury last season.

2008

Gallardo seems to be on the verge of joining the elite pitchers of the National League. After a rough stretch in August, Gallardo went 4-1 with a 1.58 ERA in his last six starts of the season. Overall, he was 9-5 with a 3.67 ERA in 110.1 innings with 101 strikeouts. He had an outstanding 211:65 K:BB ratio combined between Triple-A and the majors. Gallardo will be a big part of the Milwaukee rotation in 2008 and beyond.

2007

Gallardo had one of the best minor league seasons of any pitcher in 2006, going 11-5 with a 1.86 ERA in 155 innings between High-A Brevard County and Double-A Huntsville. The 21 year old actually pitched better at Double-A than at the lower level, striking out 85 and walking just 28 in 88.1 innings. The Brewers likely will start him in Triple-A and take it easy on their top pitching prospect. He might see some time in the majors in 2007 and then be part of the starting rotation to begin 2008.

2006

Gallardo pitched very well in his first full season of pro baseball, posting a 2.75 ERA for low Single-A West Virginia.

2005

Gallardo, the Brewers second round pick in the 2004 draft, breezed through the Arizona Rookie League with a 0.47 ERA in 19 1/3 innings pitched. He was bumped up to low Single-A Beloit for a few games where he struggled a little. He's a power pitcher who tops out in the mid 90s, but has a little bit of a funky delivery. He may get a chance to return to Beloit to start the season, depending on how he does this spring.
