Brewers activate Yovani Gallardo from DL

Brian Kersey

The Brewers activated Yovani Gallardo from the 15-day disabled list before tonight's game against the Cincinnati Reds at Miller Park.

Gallardo, who was the subject of trade rumors before the non-waiver trade deadline, has been out since July 30 when he left a start with left hamstring tightness.

He returned to the Brewers without making a minor league rehab assignment and healed in just over the minimum 15 days he needed to spend on the disabled list.

The Brewers ace has had an extremely disappointing season with a 4.91 ERA in 21 starts with a 1.48 WHIP and the lowest strikeout rate of his career at 7.08 K/9. His average fastball velocity has fallen from 92.7 MPH to 90.7 MPH over the last three seasons.

Gallardo is owed $11.25M next season and his contract includes a $13M club option for 2015. He will likely be the subject of trade rumors in the offseason if he is able to prove to potential suitors that he is healthy and can provide production to any team.

In order to make room on the 25-Man roster, the Brewers sent pitcher Donovan Hand to Triple-A.
