Yovani Gallardo to start season on DL?

Postby StarsNPinstripes » Sun Feb 17, 2008 5:35 pm

From Rotoworld:
Yovani Gallardo has been diagnosed with torn cartilage in his knee and is expected to miss four weeks following surgery.

He's set to go under the knife Tuesday and is likely to begin the season on the disabled list after suffering the injury during a throwing session earlier this week.Feb. 17 - 4:24 pm et

Personally, I hope this scares some people away from him and I'll be able to get him a tad later. I'm still goin after him.

Legia13, I completely agree with you. I love what Gallardo has to offer (3.67 ERA Rookie Season) and if you minus 11 runs from one game where he got smashed at Coors Field, he has a 2.84 ERA in his Rookie Season!!! I don't mind if he hits the DL, as long as he is pitching by mid-to-late April or even early May.

Could you take a look at this post regarding Gallardo and his knee injury?

I'm wondering if he's still a great pick for a new expansion team in a keeper league?

We do forfeit of pick to keep one pitcher as well as one pick for one hitter.

I was planning on keeping Gallardo and giving up a 16th round pick for him(based on draft last year) Would you still do that in a 12 team league?

i also agree w/ wat somebody said above.. i think this is not bad at all.... cause its not like a shoulder/elbow issue its a knee.. given its important but knowing the brewers they will in no shape rush him back from the knee injury because hes there fuutre and will wait until hes 110% so we can in a way buy low on him.. also gallardo wouldnt had been able to pitch the whole yr in the rotation also so if he can get a month or so off that wont be the worst of news.. i agree im still going after him.... however there are always risk b/c his knee might cause a problem or cause his mechanics to be off but at this point if its a standard 10 team league and u get him in the late rounds the reward is greater than the risk...

Dang...You all can blame me about this. I just turned my keeper list into my commish on Thursday. And Gallardo was my number three pitcher I kept on my list of 12 total players.. :-/

But seriously I am just glad it is a knee thing, and a minor one at that. I still expect big things out of him, just have to wait a little longer now...
