  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Earns third win

    Gallen (3-0) allowed one earned run on two hits and three walks while striking out four across five innings to earn the win Thursday against the Cubs.

    Gallen opened the game by retiring eight of the first nine hitters he faced. He ran into trouble from there but managed to induce a groundout to escape a bases-loaded jam in the fifth inning. Though he didn't look his sharpest Thursday, Gallen has allowed two earned runs or fewer in all seven of his starts this season. As a result, he owns a 1.14 ERA with 39:8 K:BB across 39.1 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Whiffs nine in quality start

    Gallen didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Cubs, allowing one run on two hits and a walk with nine strikeouts in six innings.

    Gallen continued his dominant season-opening run Saturday, limiting Chicago to just three baserunners, although one of those was a Yan Gomes solo home run. In addition to bringing his customary run prevention, the 26-year-old struck out a season-best nine batters. He has a 1.05 ERA, 0.67 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 34.1 innings. Gallen is scheduled for a rematch with Chicago next week.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Tosses seven scoreless frames

    Gallen (2-0) earned the win during Sunday's 4-0 shutout of Colorado, allowing five hits with seven strikeouts in seven scoreless innings.

    Once Gallen escaped the first inning with runners on second and third he breezed through the rest of the game, firing 61 of 92 pitches for strikes. The 26-year-old has been on a tear to begin 2022, permitting just three runs in 28.1 innings across five starts on the season for a league-leading 0.95 ERA in addition to a second-best 0.71 WHIP. Gallen has rebounded nicely from a down 2021 and will go for win number three against the Cubs next weekend.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Picks up first win

    Gallen (1-0) allowed two runs on five hits over 6.1 innings Monday, striking out five and earning a win over Miami.

    Gallen cruised through six shutout innings before running into some trouble in the seventh; he hit Avisail Garcia and Garrett Cooper before striking out Brian Anderson. Both Garcia and Cooper would come around to score with Noe Ramirez on the mound, ending Gallen's bid for a second straight scoreless performance. The 26-year-old owns a 1.27 ERA with a 19:4 K:BB on the year. Gallen is lined up to face the Rockies at home this weekend.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Six shutout innings against Dodgers

    Gallen allowed two hits and two walks while striking out five across six scoreless innings Wednesday against the Dodgers. He did not factor into the decision.

    Gallen matched Julio Urias in a pitcher's duel Wednesday, though he ultimately lost out on a chance for the win after exiting the game with a 1-0 lead. He didn't generate a high number of strikeouts or swinging strikes, but he avoided any major mistakes by limiting the Dodgers to only one extra-base hit. Gallen has allowed one earned run across his first three starts and 15 innings, which amounts to a 0.60 ERA. While he'll get touched up at points in the season, Gallen's skills have backed up the excellent stretch as he's maintained a 14:4 K:BB, and he has yet to allow a home run.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Strikes out seven in no-decision

    Gallen didn't factor into the decision during Friday's 6-5 defeat at the hands of the Mets, allowing one run on two hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in five innings.

    Making his second start against New York, Gallen retired the first nine Mets before allowing one run and all three baserunners in the fourth inning. The 26-year-old righty has now thrown nine innings on the season, permitting one run and six baserunners with nine strikeouts, and has flashed the upside that convinced Arizona to trade for him back in 2019. He'll make his third start of the season against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Goes four innings in debut

    Gallen allowed two hits and one walk while striking out two across four shutout innings Saturday against the Mets. He did not factor into the decision.

    Gallen turned in a solid season debut and stayed out of trouble by not allowing any runners into scoring position. He relied primarily on inducing soft contact, though he also racked up eight swinging strikes across 66 total pitches. The only downside to the effort was the lack of length, but that was to be expected as he dealt with both shoulder and thumb issues prior to his opening outing. Gallen should be able to work a bit deeper in his second turn through the rotation, currently projected to come Thursday at Washington.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Listed as Saturday's starter

    The Diamondbacks list Gallen (thumb) as their probable starting pitcher for Saturday's game against the Mets.

    Gallen was initially lined up to make his season debut earlier this week against the Astros, but the Diamondbacks opted to push him back four days in the schedule while he contended with a small cut on his thumb. The injury apparently wasn't anything that hindered him in his throwing session after he was pushed off Tuesday's start against Houston, so he'll take the hill for the second game of the Diamondbacks' weekend series in New York.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Likely to start Saturday

    Gallen (thumb) is expected to start Saturday against the Mets, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    The 26-year-old was scheduled to start Tuesday against the Astros and had the outing pushed back due to a laceration on his right thumb, but he's set to make his season debut just a few days later. Gallen indicated he still could have pitched Tuesday, but the Diamondbacks opted to play it safe and delay his first start of 2022.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Dealing with small cut on thumb

    Gallen will be pushed back in the rotation by a few days due to a small cut on his thumb, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    The Diamondbacks didn't initially provide a reason for scratching Gallen from his scheduled start Tuesday against the Astros, but he's apparently dealing with a minor thumb injury. Madison Bumgarner will now start Tuesday, while Merrill Kelly will take the mound Wednesday. In spite of Gallen's minor delay, he's expected to start at some point during the team's weekend series against the Mets.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: No longer starting Tuesday

    Gallen will no longer start Tuesday's game against the Astros, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

    Gallen was scheduled to make his season debut in Tuesday's series opener against Houston, but Madison Bumgarner is now listed as the projected starter for Tuesday, with Merrill Kelly scheduled for Wednesday. It's not yet clear whether Gallen is dealing with an injury or whether the Diamondbacks simply chose to adjust their rotation early in the year. The right-hander managed shoulder inflammation during the offseason that delayed his spring progression, but he was expected to avoid a trip to the injured list to begin the season.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Starting fifth game of season

    Gallen (shoulder) will enter the year with the fifth spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    The placement isn't a reflection of where Gallen stands on the team's depth chart, as he's pretty clearly Arizona's most exciting starter. He's been delayed in camp by offseason shoulder inflammation, however. He'll avoid a trip to the injured list but will be given a few extra days at the start of the season before he's asked to pitch. He's lined up to pitch April 12 at home against the Astros.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Set for second spring start

    Gallen (shoulder) is scheduled to make his second and final Cactus League start Tuesday against the Guardians.

    Gallen was delayed to begin spring training after he experienced shoulder inflammation in the offseason, but he was cleared to make his Cactus League debut last Wednesday. He looked sharp during his 2.2-inning appearance, keeping the Rockies off the board while striking out two in the 36-pitch outing. He threw nine more pitches in the bullpen after leaving the contest, and he's expected to build up to four innings in Tuesday's start. Assuming Gallen comes out of Tuesday's turn no worse for the wear, he could be ready to make his first start of the regular season during Arizona's third game Sunday versus San Diego. Expect Gallen to be capped at around five innings in that start.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Makes spring debut

    Gallen (shoulder) allowed one hit and struck out two over 2.2 scoreless innings in Wednesday's spring training start against the Rockies.

    Gallen, whose shoulder inflammation delayed his Cactus League debut until Wednesday, impressed in his first game action. He routinely hit 94-95 mph, threw 36 pitches, then another nine in the bullpen, according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. "It was coming out pretty good. Delivery felt pretty good. Everything was kind of there for strikes," the right-hander said. That he threw 45 pitches puts him on a track where he could pitch during the first week of the regular season. Gallen will make one more Cactus League start, presumably next Monday, in which he could get up to the four-inning/60-pitch range, setting him up to log five innings in his first regular-season start.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Cactus League debut scheduled

    Gallen (shoulder) will make his Cactus League debut Wednesday against the Rockies, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    Gallen has been behind since the start of camp after battling shoulder bursitis over the offseason. He's not all that far behind, however, as been throwing off a mound for two weeks. He's unlikely to be built up to a full starter's workload by Opening Day given his late start, but it's unclear if that means the Diamondbacks will send him to the injured list or simply have him finish ramping up while on the active roster.
