Über-prospect Yovani Gallardo continues to waltz through the PCL.  His current line:

67.1 IP, 8 wins, 1 loss, 2.14 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 43 hits, 95 ks, 21 BBs, 1 HR

Pure insanity.  In case you don’t feel like crunching the numbers, Yo is averaging nearly 3.4 strikeouts per inning (If you did feel like crunching the numbers you’d actually find he’s at 1.4 k/9, but I exaggerated for effect).

I don’t know what’s more impressive: the k/9, the k/bb, the one home run in 67 innings… Or maybe even his .879 OPS in 22 at-bats.

He is giving the Brewers no choice but to make room for him somewhere, whether it’s in the rotation or the bullpen.  I expect to see him up this season, and before September call-ups.  All-Star Break, maybe?
