Gallardo Injury May Change Brewers' Plans

When the Brewers' rotation was eight-deep, trading one starter before Opening Day seemed like a given.  MLBTR readers believed Chris Capuano to be the most likely to go.  However, young ace Yovani Gallardo tore cartilage in his knee and is set to miss four weeks.  This may stop Brewers GM Doug Melvin from making a preseason move.  The old adage holds true; you can never have too much pitching.

Gallardo, 21, pitched 110 innings with a 3.67 ERA as a rookie.  His ERA goes down to 2.84 if you take out an 11 earned run thrashing at Coors Field in August.  Fortunately it's a knee injury rather than an elbow tweak or something.
