Milwaukee Brewers place Yovani Gallardo on disabled list


The Milwaukee Brewers have placed one of their starting pitchers on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury.

From the Associated Press report:

The Milwaukee Brewers have put right-hander Yovani Gallardo on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

Gallardo saw team physician Dr. William Raasch on Wednesday in Milwaukee, and manager Ron Roenicke says it’s a mild strain. Roenicke says right-hander Tyler Thornburg will take Gallardo’s spot in the rotation.

Gallardo suffered the strained left hamstring in Tuesday’s 6-5 victory against the Chicago Cubs. That injury likely impacted his trade status, similar to what happened with the Chicago White Sox’ Alex Rios.

It’s been a difficult season for Gallardo who posts an 8-9 record with a 4.91 earned run average, well over his totals from a couple previous seasons, but it’s been impacted like the rest of the starters with a Brewers team that hasn’t been this bad in that stretch.

Gallardo is replaced by Scooter Gennett, an infielder that was called up for the day-night doubleheader on Tuesday. He was recalled shortly after being optioned back to Triple-A Nashville.
