Brewers | Yovani Gallardo throws bullpen session

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers SP Yovani Gallardo (groin) threw a successful bullpen session Sunday, March 3. He remains on track to pitch for Team Mexico in the World Baseball Classic, but the Brewers want to see him pitch one inning for them Tuesday, March 5, in an exhibition game against Tema Canada.

General manager Doug Melvin and assistant general manager Gord Ash informed manager Ron Roenicke that WBC rules dictate a player cannot return to his major league team after joining his Classic team, and Mexico had a players' meeting scheduled for Sunday night. "The rules are that if he shows up to the meeting that they have, he cannot come back with us," Roenicke said. "He cannot come back to get treated, he can't come back to pitching an inning Tuesday for us. So I need to have a discussion with 'Yo' to see what he wants to do."
