They won't make an official decision until the swelling goes down, so if you want to be absolutely sure, you'll have to wait a little while. I took the plunge and dropped him, anyway.

Damn, I feel your pain buddy. I was stuck in the SAME situation and decided to hold onto him.

This is horrible news... luckily I only own him on 1 team.

I picked up Buchholz to try and replace him. McGowan, Carmona, Snell and Cueto are out there too, but most people in the league aren't likely to pick up struggling pitchers.

I wonder if he made the injury worse by staying in and pitching another 1 2/3 innings.

Word now is that he's officially out for the year. Assistant GM says its a complete tear, and that he'll have surgery within the week.

No, he did not. I saw the game, and I remember he threw a fastball in the low 80s in the 6th. I knew right away that something was up and it was greatly due to the tear by that point.

Carmona is "struggling" at 3-1 with a 2.73 ERA? And while McGowan's only 1-2, he has a solid 3.57 ERA with 28 Ks in 35 IP...

Carmona's struggling point is his 1.73 WHIP. I don't know how he managed to keep his ERA down so low. In his last 4 starts, he's given up 12 baserunners (4 BB), 13 (4 BB), 8, (1 BB, only outing of the year under 4 BB), and 10 (8 BB!!). For the year, his K:BB is 13:26. Either his ERA and wins will catch up to his lack of control, or he will snap out of it and get back to where he was last year. P.S. ranked 665 in Yahoo.

For those in keeper leagues who will eventually have to make a decision on Gallardo there is a very nice article on the DL Informer about his tear. To sum it up, if surgery is required -- in all likelihood it is -- the fact that it was his right knee and not his left is better for his rehabilitation. Because Gallardo throw right he plants with his left foot. Apparently the plant is more much strenuous on the ligament than the push and drive required from the right foot. So I guess be cautiously optimistic about his chances to succeed next season.

And by the way, in the article, suggested as a possible replaced: better than JC, Clayton Kershaw.
