On Monday the Brewers team doctor said they would keep Yovani Gallardo on the active roster despite straining his left oblique muscle in Sunday’s loss to St. Louis. On Tuesday, they changed their mind and placed the Brewers All-Star pitcher on the 15 day disabled list.
The move allows the Crew to activate Doug Davis who will start on Friday against Pittsburgh. Gallardo will be eligible to come off the DL on July 20th.
The 24-year-old is 8-4 on the season with a 2.58 ERA. By placing Gallardo on the DL he is officially out of next Tuesday’s All-Star Game in Anaheim.
