While Yovani Gallardo is still on the trade market, his disappointing first half may have scared some teams away.
Another dominant performance against the Miami Marlins could perhaps boost his value.
Gallardo aims to get on track and continue his mastery of the visiting Marlins, who try to snap their recent woes against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night.
The All-Star break couldn't have come at a better time for Gallardo (7-8, 4.83 ERA), who struggled through the season's first 3 12 months. Besides posting the highest ERA of his career, Gallardo has recorded a career-low 7.21 strikeouts per nine innings and is already one loss away from matching his total from all of 2012.
In his final start before the break, Gallardo allowed three runs and four hits in six innings but didn't factor in the decision of a 5-3 loss at Arizona last Thursday.
"It's just frustrating," Gallardo, who was backed with an early three-run lead, told MLB's official websit...

MILWAUKEE -- For a good chunk of the first half of the season, the Milwaukee Brewers couldn't buy a quality start let alone a shutout.
After becoming the last team in baseball to collect a shutout this season -- finally getting their first on June 15 in Cincinnati -- the Brewers now have seven shutouts in their last 30 games after Saturday night's 6-0 victory over Miami...
MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez didn't get the day off Sunday because of the slump he's in at the plate, but the All-Star is battling another injury.
Gomez is out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale against Miami with a sore right elbow, adding to the nagging left shoulder and thumb injuries he's battled over the past few weeks.

Appearing to be back on track in his return from a left hamstring injury, Marco Estrada represented some good news for a struggling ballclub on Friday according to Adam McCalvy and Kevin Massoth of MLB.com.

Had they misspelled Ron Roenicke’s last name on his jersey one could understand. Instead Roenicke wore a jersey which read Milwakuee instead of Milwaukee on Saturday night.

Major League Baseball has suspended Brewers leftfielder Ryan Braun without pay for the remainder of the 2013 season and he has accepted the penalty, meaning he was caught red-handed either buying and/or using performance-enhancing drugs.
The suspension takes place immediately, so Braun will be suspended for the final 65 games of the season, beginning with the Brewers' game Monday...
The Miami Marlins, a team no where near the playoff race, has decided to play it safe and shut their prized rookie Jose Fernandez down at about 170 innings pitched. The 20-year old has been very impressive, jumping from Single A ball to the majors and becoming an All-Star during that rookie season. So it’s no surprise the Marlins are trying to protect the kids arm.
It was an empty weekend for the Miami Marlins' offense.
Caleb Gindl hit his first career home run in the bottom of the 13th inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat Miami 1-0 on Sunday, shutting out the punchless Marlins for the third consecutive game.
Ed Lucas, one of only three Miami batters to get a hit, complimented his team's pitching despite the offensive slump.
The Milwaukee Brewers are expecting to activate third
baseman Aramis Ramirez from the disabled list on Monday. His return could be
short-lived, considering the Brewers may be selling this summer and he’s a
productive player coveted by contenders. Two teams that could become especially
interested in Ramirez are the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, according to
Having extended their winning streak with an extra-inning shutout, the Milwaukee Brewers hope to continue their run of outstanding pitching performances against another struggling club.
The Brewers will attempt to keep their scoreless streak going and win their fifth in a row Monday night when they host a San Diego Padres team that has dropped 11 of 12 on the road.
What does everybody want? Hand!
