Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Short outing in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (1-2) allowed four earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out three across 2.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Giants.

Gallen made his first start since May 7 after being sidelined by an elbow sprain. The outing didn't go as hoped, as he allowed three extra-base hits and was hit hard by the Giants throughout the short start. Positively, Gallen appears to have left the game healthy, so he should be able to continue to building up to his regular workload. Overall, he has a 3.99 ERA with a 35:15 K:BB across 29.1 innings on the season.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Activated as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (elbow) was activated off the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Giants.

Gallen's season has been disrupted twice already, first by a hairline fracture in his forearm in late March and then by an elbow sprain in mid-May. He was only able to make five starts between the two injuries but recorded a strong 3.04 ERA, a number which exactly matched his FIP. He may not be asked to pitch particularly deep in Thursday's contest, as he threw just 46 pitches in his final simulated game Saturday.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (elbow) will be activated from the injured list and start Thursday's game against the Giants, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Gallen last pitched May 7 before being sidelined with a right UCL sprain. He was solid in four of his five early-season starts, but control issues were a persistent problem -- he walked multiple batters in every outing and issued four free passes on two different occasions. Even so, Gallen was an ace last season and will be welcomed back to the top of Arizona's struggling starting rotation.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Throws bullpen Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (elbow) felt good after throwing a bullpen session Tuesday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Gallen, who threw a simulated game Saturday before Tuesday's session, is nearing a return to the majors. Manager Torey Lovullo said the team is discussing next steps for Gallen, who has been out since mid-May. The plan is likely to include a rehab assignment in the minors.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Throws sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (elbow) threw 46 pitches and 2.2 innings in a simulated game Saturday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Gallen came out of the outing feeling good, per manager Torey Lovullo, who was encouraged by the session. The Diamondbacks are hopeful the right-hander can be back in the fold by the end of June.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Another sim game on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (elbow) will throw a 45-pitch simulated game Saturday, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.

He completed a 32-pitch simulated game Monday and will advance to three innings/45 pitches this weekend. Gallen will presumably advance to a rehab assignment if he continues progressing without setbacks and is tracking toward a late-June return to the big-league rotation. However, given the nature of his injury, there is some risk of a setback every time he takes the mound.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Completes simulated game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (elbow) threw a 32-pitch simulated game Monday and is scheduled for a bullpen session Wednesday or Thursday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

The 25-year-old resumed mound work at the end of May and continues progressing through his throwing program. Assuming all goes well during the bullpen session, Gallen will throw in another simulated game this weekend. The right-hander should continue ramping up his workload and could rejoin the rotation by the end of June.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Another bullpen on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (elbow) completed a 30-pitch bullpen session Tuesday and is tentatively scheduled for another session Friday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

The 25-year-old was able to throw all his pitches during Tuesday's session, which is a good sign as he attempts to return from a UCL sprain. Gallen should continue building up to a starter's workload over the next few weeks before potentially rejoining Arizona's starting rotation.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Side session set for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (elbow) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

The Diamondbacks cleared Gallen to take the next step forward in his rehab program for a UCL sprain after he played long toss from 90 feet Monday with no renewed discomfort. Gallen will need several weeks to build up to a starter's workload before being ready to rejoin the Arizona rotation, assuming he can steer clear of any setbacks along the way. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to be reinstated from the 10-day injured list until late June at the soonest.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Nearing bullpen work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (elbow) is expected to throw off flat ground and throw a bullpen session in the coming week, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Throwing off a mound is a significant step for the right-hander, although he would require a few weeks to build up arm strength and endurance for a return to the rotation. Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen had previously said that Gallen would require more imaging after a period of not throwing; however, the GM was uncertain if that was still in the plans.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Begins playing catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (elbow) has begun playing catch, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

He is out with a UCL sprain, so playing light catch isn't necessarily an optimistic sign. Even if Gallen is able to return to the big-league rotation sometime this summer, he will be at risk of re-injury that could lead to surgery.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Likely to require more imaging
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arizona general manager Mike Hazen said the most likely path forward for Gallen (elbow) is a short "no-throw" period, followed by a second round of imaging work to assess healing, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

The organization is hopeful it got out in front of the injury, which at this stage is being described as a "very minor sprain" of the UCL. Matt Peacock, who took Gallen's turn Wednesday in what was anticipated to be a bullpen day, threw five innings and could stick in the rotation. However, Hazen mentioned a number of possible candidates, including Corbin Martin, Jon Duplantier, Josh Green and Seth Frankoff, who was promoted to the majors Wednesday for bullpen depth.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Early results promising
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (elbow) produced "encouraging" early test results Wednesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Early indications by manager Tory Lovullo suggested that the UCL was the location of Gallen's elbow issue, a cause for concern with any pitcher, but especially an ace of Gallen's caliber. Further reports will reveal more about the righty's elbow and how much time he might miss. For now, he's on the 10-day DL and won't be starting for the Diamondbacks at least the next couple of times through the rotation.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Goes to 10-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a sprained right elbow.

The move comes just hours before Gallen's scheduled start against the Marlins. Given the nature of the injury to his throwing arm, a minimum IL stay seems unlikely for Gallen. The team is calling it a "minor" sprain of one section of his UCL and he will be reassessed in a couple weeks. The righty has endured a couple tough outings in 2021, but overall through five starts he boasts a 3.04 ERA with 32 strikeouts. Matt Peacock will start in his place on short notice.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Delivers quality start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Mets, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and four walks over six innings. He struck out five.

While the right-hander's control wavered and he threw only 57 of 96 pitches for strikes, Gallen was able to limit the damage and left the game in line for the win. He's produced two quality starts in his last three trips to the mound, and Gallen will take a 3.04 ERA and 32:14 K:BB through 26.2 innings into his next outing.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Struggles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (1-1) allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out seven across four innings, taking the loss against the Rockies on Saturday.

Gallen struggled Saturday in what was his worst start so far this season. He didn't allow any home runs and struck out seven, but he was unable to make it past four innings after surrendering four runs. His ERA is still at 3.48 in 20.2 innings through four starts.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Pitches complete game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (1-0) pitched a complete scoreless game in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Braves, giving up just one hit and two walks while fanning six.

Gallen looked dominant on the mound and limited the Braves to just one hit -- a single from Freddie Freeman -- and didn't have any problems outside of the sixth inning when he had runners on the corners with two outs. This was Gallen's best start of the season by a wide margin. He'll try to build off this performance when he takes the ball during next weekend's series against the Rockies at home.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Takes no-decision in second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's win over the Reds, the completion of Tuesday's suspended game. He allowed three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out six over 5.2 innings.

Gallen made his second start of the season after spending time on the injured list with a hairline fracture of his right forearm. He built on both his innings and pitch count, throwing 98 pitches while pitching into the sixth inning. Gallen's next start is scheduled for Sunday at Atlanta.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Fans eight in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen allowed one run on three hits and two walks over four innings during Tuesday's 7-5 loss to the A's. He had eight strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.

The 25-year-old pitched well after missing the start of the season due to a hairline fracture in his right forearm, with the only run he gave up coming via a solo homer off the bat of Stephen Piscotty. Gallen threw 82 pitches Tuesday and should continue building up his workload when he starts again next week at Cincinnati.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Officially activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (forearm) was activated from the 10-day injured list as expected ahead of his scheduled Tuesday start against the Athletics.

Gallen suffered a hairline fracture in his right forearm in late March and initially had a rather ambiguous timeline. As it turns out, he won't end up missing more than two starts. After throwing 67 pitches in a simulated game Wednesday, he'll likely be on some sort of pitch count in his season debut but could still last long enough to be eligible for a win if he's efficient.
