Guess who could be pitching for the Brewers sometime soon? Even though when he was injured earlier in May, Yovani Gallardo could very well join the team for a late playoff run, and possibly pitch into the playoffs. Here's what Tom Haudricourt had to say while writing his pre-game post this afternoon:
"As I write this blog, right-hander Yovani Gallardo is throwing a simulated game to a handful of Brewers hitters. Gallardo has been out since May 1 with a torn ACL in his right knee and the Brewers have maintained it is a long shot that he will pitch again this season."Haudricourt also mentions that because the minor-league season is over, Gallardo can't go their for any sort of rehab assignment. But he is throwing a simulated game, so that can't be anything but a good sign. I have no idea personally how Gallardo is feeling or what the Brewers plan on doing with him, but I've thought all along that Yovani would make a triumphant return to the bigs sometime this season.
Keeping with the good news nature of this post, Ben Sheets is expected to make his next start on Saturday.
