The Milwaukee Brewers placed right-hander Yovani Gallardo on the 15-day disabled list yesterday due to a strained left hamstring, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. Gallardo had been dealing with discomfort in his hamstring since prior to the All-Star break before exiting Game 1 of Tuesday’s doubleheader early due to the pain. The right-hander aggravated the hamstring injury in the fourth inning of Tuesday’s contest while making a diving catch. His hamstring tightened up an inning later, and he was removed. While the strain has been diagnosed as mild, the Brewers have decided to play it safe with Gallardo. Manager Ron Roenicke said the team knew Gallardo would miss at least one start, and potentially two, making the decision to place him on the DL an easier one. "We were fortunate there," manager Ron Roenicke said. "It was a question whether to put him on the DL. The thing is, he was going to miss one start for sure, maybe two, and now you come into where your bullpen is going to be hurt." Gallardo has been one of Milwaukee’s best arms over the past few seasons, but he struggled this year. Over 23 starts, the 27-year-old posted an ERA and WHIP of 4.91 and 1.481. Tyler Thornburg will take over Gallardo’s spot in Milwaukee’s rotation. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
