  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Sim game coming Friday

    Gallen is scheduled to throw a simulated game Friday, Steve Stockmar of reports.

    Gallen is being brought along slowly this spring and has yet to throw in a Cactus League game. He threw a bullpen session Wednesday, about which manager Torey Lovullo said he looked great and "everything's falling in line for him," as Gallen preps to be the club's starter Opening Day. Including Friday's sim game, the right-hander will pitch in five games this spring.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Change of plans

    Gallen will not start Friday's Cactus League game against the Reds, Alex Weiner of Arizona Sports reports.

    Gallen had been scheduled to make his spring debut March 1, but the Diamondbacks will opt to have the right-hander throw a simulated game on the back fields instead of making the trip west to Goodyear. There's no word yet on who will slot into Gallen's place for a spot start Friday.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Faces batters Sunday

    Gallen tossed a live batting-practice session Sunday, Steve Gilbert of reports.

    This was the first time facing batters this spring for Gallen, who is prepping for his scheduled Cactus League debut Friday. "I felt all right," the right-hander said. "I mean, I still feel a little rushed, but that's just a timing thing. I think that just comes with time of getting used to seeing hitters again." Gallen, who threw a career-high 243.2 innings combined between the regular season and playoffs in 2023, is being brought along slowly this spring but should be Arizona's Opening Day starter.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: First Cactus League start set

    Gallen is set to make his first Cactus League start March 1 against the Reds, Jack Magruder of reports.

    Gallen, projected as Arizona's No. 1 starter, tossed a career-high 243.2 innings in 2023, including the postseason. Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo talked about building up both Gallen and No. 2 starter Merrill Kelly, who threw a career-high 201.2 innings. "Obviously the buildup is of maximum concern -- we want to make sure they are at a certain pitch limit for their first start of the year," Lovullo said. Gallen was 17-9 with a 3.47 ERA (3.26 FIP) and 1.12 WHIP over 34 regular-season starts last season.
