After eight years as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers, Gallardo had a solid year playing in his first year in the junior circuit with the Texas Rangers. In 184.1 innings, Gallardo posted a 3.42 ERA, but did post a career-high 1.416 WHIP. Gallardo also posted a career low 5.9 K/9. These are concerning statistics. When a pitcher is missing fewer bats and giving up more hits, it becomes difficult to project future success. If the Tigers are looking for a bargain buy and someone with experience to solidify the back-end of your rotation, Gallardo could be exactly who the they need.
