MLB Injury News:
Teams have been calling the Brewers about their pitchers. The pitchers that have been garnering most of the medias attention are John Axford and Mike Gonzalez, but teams have shown interest in starters Yovani Gallardo and Kyle Lohse, according to reports. While teams are interested, are the Brewers willing to deal them?
According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Milwaukee Brewers are likely to keep Yovani Gallardo and Kyle Lohse during the Trade Deadline. Rosenthal says that both pitchers could have "greater value" during the offseason.
Both pitchers have two years left on their contracts. Gallardo will make $24.25 million over the next two years, while Lohse will make 22 million over the next two years. Gallardo this year has struggled, as the velocity on his fastball has gone down considerably. Lohse is a good pitcher and has proven to be dominant at times with the Cardinals and Brewers.
Gallardo was drawing interest on the market from teams like the Orioles, Red Sox and Indians, but a deal appears unlikely. On the year, Gallardo is 8-8 with a 4.58 ERA and a 96/45 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Lohse this year is 7-7 with a 3.37 ERA and a 82/19 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Expect both pitchers to draw considerable interest on the open market, as teams may be intrigued that they both will be under team control for the next two years.
