Yovani Gallardo’s name might be tossed around a lot in advance of the July 31 trade deadline. Many teams would need to clear an extra hurdle to acquire the right-hander, though.
Gallardo can block trades to 10 teams, according to MLBDailyDish.com’s Chris Cotillo. The Red Sox reportedly are among the teams on the pitcher’s no-trade list.
Gallardo reportedly can block trades to the Orioles, Indians, Tigers, Astros, Angels, Yankees, Phillies, Pirates and Blue Jays, in addition to the Red Sox.
This doesn’t rule out the possibility of Gallardo being traded to any of those 10 teams. It just means that he’ll need to waive his no-trade clause for any of those teams to acquire the 27-year-old.
Gallardo, who is owed $11.25 million in 2014 and has a $13 million club option for 2015, is 6-7 with a 4.20 ERA in 17 starts this season. He was named an All-Star in 2010, and he finished seventh in National League Cy Young voting in 2011, when he went 17-10 with a 3.52 ERA.

With the trade deadline just about a month away, and the chances of the Brewers going on a 20-game winning streak…unlikely, shall we say…it’s understandable fans are thinking about how different the team might look by August. One name that’s been tossed around quite a bit is Yovani Gallardo.

Some of you may be familiar with my drawings of Corey Hart in numerous odd situations. I'd been meaning to put some of these up, before today's sad news that Hart will have to undergo season-ending left knee surgery. (per Tom Haudricourt, aka - our favorite Prince of Darkness).
Some of these -or, many of these - illustrations are ones I've already drawn...
After another short start, the Milwaukee Brewers needed some extra coverage in the bullpen.
Right-hander Tyler Thornburg was recalled from Triple-A Nashville following Friday's 10-3 loss to Pittsburgh, as the club sent outfielder Caleb Gindl back to Triple-A to make room.
The Brewers will go to four-man bench in order to add a long reliever. Yovani Gallardo went just four innings...
Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Corey Hart needs surgery on his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season, manager Ron Roenicke told reporters prior to Friday's game in Pittsburgh.
Hart, 31, hasn't played all season after undergoing right knee surgery in January. Hart went to Los Angeles on Wednesday to get a second opinion on his left knee from Dr. Neal ElAttrache...
Although Saturday saw Milwaukee Brewers' left fielder Ryan Braun have his best day in the training room since his injury, he is not expected to swing a bat until next Thursday. He is also most probably sidelined until after the All-Star break.
As reported by Adam McCalvy of MLB.com,
"Braun is on the disabled list because of an irritated nerve between
his right thumb...
The Colorado Rockies are surprisingly only four games out of first place in their division and appear to be buyers at the trade deadline. They will specifically be looking for pitchers as their pitching staff and bullpen may need a bit of tuning up.
According to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post, the Rockies are taking interest in Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo and Cubs...
While he struggled after returning from injury, Matt Garza appears to have found his groove.
The Milwaukee Brewers' Wily Peralta was plenty sharp last week, too.
Garza takes the mound opposite Peralta as the Chicago Cubs go for another rare win in Milwaukee in Thursday's series finale.
After missing the second half of last season with an elbow injury, Garza (2-1, 4.25...
The Milwaukee Brewers appear to be ready to sell as well. They have some good pieces in the bullpen and teams want those guys. The Brewers have not played well at all this year and that is an understatement, so selling makes a ton of sense.
The Brewers, according to Buster Olney of ESPN, have received calls on relievers John Axford, Mike Gonzalez and Francisco Rodriguez as well...

Athletes and guns have been a poisonous mix. It only took a few days for the Huntsville Stars to realize that.
Now, the minor league team -- a Double A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers -- that is playing host to a "2nd Amendment Night," which was to feature the raffling of three rifles, has called off that portion of the evening.
According to Stars' general manager...
The Arizona Diamondbacks are in the market for a starting pitcher. Believe it or not, Ricky Nolasco has not been mentioned as a possible target. The Diamondbacks are focusing on completely different pitchers right now.
According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Diamondbacks are interested in Brewers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo and Cubs starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija...

The first place Pittsburgh Pirates go for eight in a row tonight against the last place Milwaukee Brewers. PNC Park should be sold out for the fifth straight game (it’s Fireworks Night, after all) and it should be a great atmosphere on the North Shore.

God, 50 wins already? I celebrated by showing my boobs to everyone like it was Mardi Gras. Can you believe they threw me out of McDonalds? Can’t a grown man be excited about his favorite baseball team having the best record in baseball? It’s nothing that playplace full of kids hasn’t seen before. They weren’t…
I don’t think anybody is overreacting if they are a little worried about the state of Diamondbacks right now. The real question is, does the team feel the same way? If you’ve been following the national baseball writers closely at all, you’ll see that the Diamondbacks are brought up probably just as much as any other team as a strong possibility to make a trade before the deadline.
I’m sure it’s not an original idea but it’s something I thought about after last night’s victory and something I definitely believe. Last season, the year before, this team doesn’t win that game, let alone dominate it like they did. That’s exactly what is different about this year’s club. We’ve seen them repeatedly come back…
