Player Notes
Rangers acquired RHP Yovani Gallardo and cash considerations from the Brewers for INF Luis Sardinas and RHPs Corey Knebel and Marcos Diplan.

Advice: Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the Brewers will pay $4 million of Gallardo's $14 million salary for 2015. Gallardo delivered a 3.51 ERA across 32 starts last season, but his strikeout rate has decreased in each of the past two seasons and the move to Texas doesn't do anything to increase his fantasy appeal. He's nothing more than a back-end option in standard mixed leagues as he moves into his age-29 season, but he should eat up innings for Texas. He has averaged 192 innings over the past six seasons. Gallardo is currently eligible to be a free agent after 2015.

The New York Post's Joel Sherman is reporting that the Brewers and Rangers have a "deal in principle" that would send Yovani Gallardo to the Rangers.

Advice: Sherman wrote that the trade is in "medical review" at the moment. No word on which players would be moving to Milwaukee in the trade. Gallardo posted a 3.51 ERA over 32 starts in 2014, marking the sixth straight season in which the pitcher has compiled 30 or more starts. It doesn't help Gallardo's fantasy value that he's potentially moving to a hitter's park in the AL, though Yu Darvish has proved that pitching for the Rangers isn't necessarily going to end in fire and brimstone. Gallardo has pitched under a 4.00 ERA in all but one of his eight seasons in the bigs. He's not quite the strikeout machine that he was in his prime (he punched out 144 and 146 in his last two seasons, as compared to 200+ from 2009-2012), but he's a consistent commodity and should be viewed as a mid-rotation option in drafts this spring, particularly in AL-only leagues.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal and Jon Morosi report that the Rangers are "on the verge" of trading for Yovani Gallardo.

Advice: There's no word yet on what the Brewers will receive in return. It's not an ideal landing spot for Gallardo's fantasy prospects since he's headed to the American League and a hitter's park. Of course, he's already been pitching in a hitter-friendly park his whole career. The veteran right-hander will make $13 million in 2015 before hitting free agency next winter. Gallardo went to high school in Texas, which could give the Rangers a better shot of signing him to a long-term deal should they want to pursue it.
