  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Shut down with shoulder injury

    The Cardinals placed Gallegos on the 15-day injured list Monday with right shoulder rotator cuff tendinitis.

    St. Louis recalled right-hander Jake Woodford from Triple-A Memphis to serve as a replacement on the 28-man active roster for Gallegos, whose season comes to an end as a result of the injury. Unless follow-up tests on Gallegos' shoulder that reveal structural damage, he should be in store for a relatively normal offseason and head into spring training at full health. Gallegos concludes the 2023 campaign with two wins, 10 saves, 20 holds and a 4.42 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 59:12 K:BB across 55 innings out of the St. Louis bullpen.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Earns 10th save

    Gallegos picked up a save Sunday against the Pirates. He struck out one over a perfect inning.

    Gallegos had allowed six earned runs in 2.2 innings since his last save Aug. 9, but needed only eight pitches to close out Sunday's game. Gallegos has been splitting late-inning duties with JoJo Romero, but with Ryan Helsley recently being activated from the injured list, the pecking order of the Cardinals bullpen remains murky.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Locks down ninth save

    Gallegos picked up the save Wednesday against the Rays, striking out one over a scoreless inning.

    It's Gallegos' first save since Jordan Hicks was dealt at the trade deadline. It appeared that the 31-year-old right-hander would be first in line for save opportunities until Ryan Helsley's (forearm) return, though he's been splitting the job with JoJo Romero so far. Gallegos has now gone nine straight appearances (10.1 innings) without allowing a run, striking out 11 in that span. His ERA is down 3.45 with a 1.02 WHIP and 47:9 K:BB across 47 innings this season, while he's racked up nine saves and 15 holds.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Picks up hold Sunday

    Gallegos struck out two in two perfect innings to earn the hold during Sunday's 3-0 win over the Cubs.

    Gallegos worked in the seventh and eighth innings during Sunday's series finale against the Cubs, but he'll likely see increased save opportunities for the Cardinals after Jordan Hicks was traded to the Blue Jays on Sunday. Gallegos has converted eight of 13 save opportunities this year in addition to his 15 holds, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him as the Cardinals' primary option in the ninth inning down the stretch. JoJo Romero picked up his first career save against the Cubs on Sunday.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Nabs win Monday

    Gallegos (2-4) allowed two hits and struck out one over 1.1 innings to earn the win over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    After an inconsistent June, Gallegos has stabilized in July, allowing just one run 9.2 innings. The right-hander did his part to keep the Cardinals close Monday, and they rewarded him with a ninth-inning rally. Gallegos is now at a 3.92 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 40:9 K:BB through 41.1 innings. He's added eight holds, 13 saves and four blown saves, but it appears he'll remain in a setup role with Jordan Hicks closing while Ryan Helsley (forearm) remains out, though the St. Louis bullpen could change drastically in the week leading up to the trade deadline.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Hit hard Wednesday

    Gallegos (1-4) allowed five runs on four hits and a walk without recording a strikeout in two-thirds of an inning to take the loss and a blown save Wednesday versus the Astros.

    Gallegos yielded home runs to Jose Altuve and Jose Abreu in the disastrous eighth inning. The Cardinals have taken 16 blown saves as a team this year, and Gallegos is responsible for four of them. Three of those squandered leads have come in June, where he's been scored upon multiple times in three of his nine appearances for a total of 11 runs allowed over nine innings. The setup man has a 4.83 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 29:7 K:BB through 31.2 innings while adding eight saves and nine holds, but Gallegos won't come close to challenging Jordan Hicks for closing duties if he can't turn things around.

  • Cardinals' Giovanny Gallegos: Allows game-tying homer

    Gallegos blew the save in Wednesday's 8-5 loss to the Giants, allowing a two-run home run while striking out two and walking one across one inning.

    Gallegos appeared to be working his way out of trouble after issuing a leadoff walk to LaMonte Wade Jr. to begin the ninth, retiring the next two batters he faced. He then got ahead 0-2 in the count before running it full and eventually surrendering a game-tying, two-run home run to Mike Yastrzemski. The reliever would get out of the inning with the score still tied 5-5, though the Cardinals fell in the 10th for their fifth straight loss. Gallegos has now blown two of his last three save attempts while also allowing three home runs so far in June. He had allowed just two home runs all season coming into this month.
