Follow the jump for all the usual bits and pieces.
Yovani Gallardo (10-5, 2.71) is a mac daddy. He strikes out people like nobodies business (10.12 K/9), has his walks cut down by almost one less per nine innings from last year, doesn't give up many homeruns (0.43/9) and has a 2.75 FIP (4th in MLB for starting pitchers), a 3.32 xFIP (sixth) and a 3.78 tRA. Also, he might be the best hitting pitcher in the league. So it's a pretty exciting thought that the Brewers have the rights to Yo through 2015.
Wesley Wright (1-1, 4.44) has appeared in nine games (three starts) so far this year, and has been mediocre at best. His K/9 and BB/9 numbers look pretty good at 7.52 and 2.39, respectively, but the Brewers must be licking their lips when they see his 2.05 HR/9. He also has a 5.42 FIP on the season, with a 4.01 xFIP and 5.94 tRA. Then again, all these numbers are in a pretty small sample size of 26.1 innings. But his career numbers in 126.2 innings aren't a whole lot better. Hopefully nothing clicks for him tonight.
Trevor Hoffman pitched 1 inning (8 pitches) yesterday and also pitched Friday.
