Bits: Struggling Yovani Gallardo fires gem

6/11/2013

All the games count equally, so let’s not shortchange Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo for Monday’s excellent performance as he tossed eight innings of four-hit, shutout ball against the lowly Miami Marlins. After all, Miami's lineup did feature the return of slugger Giancarlo Stanton from the disabled list. Gallardo, however, will need more than conquering a Double-A lineup to fix his disappointing season. In fact, this appears to be a wise time to try to sell high before he faces the tougher Cincinnati Reds and Atlanta Braves in his next few outings.
