Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Command issues linger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen has struggled to command his pitches during his time with the Diamondbacks, Richard Morin of the Arizona Republic reports.

After walking 18 batters over 36.1 innings prior to the trade from Miami to Arizona, Gallen issued another 10 free passes in 15 innings with the D-backs. Despite the walks, the right-hander minimized damage, allowing just three runs. It may be a case where the young pitcher is trading the base on balls for the risk of making a costly mistake to a big-league hitter. "I think it's just you get up here and guys have better eyes," Gallen said. "They're patient hitters; they know what they're looking for. There's a little bit of give and take. You can go ahead and attack them, but at the same time you run the risk of making a mistake and the next thing you know it's three runs instead of just a guy on first base or a guy on first and second." Over his three starts with Arizona, Gallen has landed just 30 percent of his fastballs and 29 percent of his curveballs for strikes. He's lined up to next start Sunday on the road against the Brewers.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Fans eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen threw six innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Monday, giving up one earned run on five hits, striking out eight and walking six as the Diamondbacks won 5-3.

His control wasn't at his best as he issued a season-high six free passes, but it was an otherwise stellar outing for Gallen, as he posted his third quality start of the season. The 24-year-old continues to impress, as he's now sporting an excellent 2.45 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 60:28 K:BB across 51.1 innings.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Tosses four innings in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen threw four innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on nine hits, striking out three and walking one in a 9-3 victory for the Diamondbacks.

He did well to limit the damage despite allowing 10 baserunners, but Gallen couldn't quite meet the five-inning threshold that would have qualified him for a second straight win since joining the Diamondbacks. Still, Gallen is posting solid numbers over his 45.1 innings between Arizona and Miami this season, as he's now sporting a 2.58 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 52:22 K:BB. The 24-year-old lines up to take on the Giants at home in his next start on Sunday.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Fans six in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (2-3) earned the win Wednesday after holding the Phillies scoreless over five innings, allowing one hit and three walks while striking out six.

Making his first start for the Diamondbacks, Gallen turned in a solid performance, retiring the first six batters and holding the Phillies to one single. The right-hander, who made his big-league debut June 20, was traded from the Marlins at the deadline. Through eight appearances, Gallen owns a 2.40 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 49:21 K:BB. The 24-year-old has a tall order on tap in his next start against the Rockies on Tuesday at Coors Field.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Arizona debut coming Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

The right-hander with be making his Arizona debut exactly one week after he was dealt away from the Marlins in one of the more surprising moves ahead of the trade deadline. The move from Marlins Park to Chase Field shouldn't have a major impact on Gallen's bottom-line numbers, as both venues have ranked in the top five in terms of home-run suppression in 2019.

Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Traded to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen was traded from the Marlins to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday for Jazz Chisholm, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

This deal came out of nowhere, with the Marlins dealing from their underrated starting pitching depth for a high-upside shortstop prospect. Gallen gets a downgrade in his home ballpark, and will now have to pitch in Coors Field and against the Dodgers more than he would have with Miami. However, at least he stays in the National League and is on a more competitive ball club. Gallen has a 2.72 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 43 strikeouts in 36.1 innings (seven starts) in the big leagues.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Fans eight in tough loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (1-3) took the loss Tuesday as the Marlins dropped a 2-1 decision to the Twins, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks over seven innings while striking out eight.

The strikeouts are starting to pile up for the rookie right-hander, who sports a 1.85 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 27:13 K:BB through 24.1 innings since the All-Star break. Gallen will hope for better run support when he next takes the mound Monday as part of a road doubleheader against the Mets.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Strikes out nine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (1-2) gave up two hits and one walk while striking out nine through seven scoreless innings to take the win over the White Sox on Wednesday.

It was a marquee night for Gallen as he set career bests for innings, strikeouts and hits allowed while picking up his first win in a terrific start. The 23-year-old is on a nice hot streak, posting a 1.58 ERA through three outings in July. Gallen will make his next start Tuesday against the Twins at Marlins Park.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Suffers loss in Hollywood
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (0-2) allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and four walks over 5.1 innings Friday. He struck out five and took the loss as the Marlins fell 2-1 to the Dodgers.

Gallen has walked 14 batters in 22.1 big-league innings this season across five appearances, a far cry from the dominant 112:17 K:BB he posted in 91.1 innings for Triple-A New Orleans. The 23-year-old has a 3.63 ERA and 1.48 WHIP for the Marlins, and he'll remain in search of his first win when he takes on the White Sox on Wednesday.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Walks five in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen allowed two runs on four hits with five walks and five strikeouts across five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Saturday.

Through his first three starts, walks were a little issue but not a significant one for Gallen. On Saturday, it was a major problem, as he averaged one free pass per inning. Somehow though, none of those walks scored. It's still a small sample size, but Gallen now has 10 walks in 17 innings; one has to figure he can't continue this pace and experience success. He is 0-1 with a 4.24 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 21 strikeouts over four starts. Gallen is scheduled to pitch on the road against the Dodgers next Friday.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Remains in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Mets.

As promised, manager Don Mattingly pared down the Miami rotation from six to five men following the All-Star break, with Gallen and fellow rookie Jordan Yamamoto sticking as starters while Elieser Hernandez was sent to the bullpen. The decision should grant Gallen some temporary security, though he may need to deliver better surface results than he has through his first three turns to remain in the rotation for the entire second half. Gallen has submitted a 4.50 ERA and 1.42 WHIP through 12 innings, but a 2.87 FIP and 20.8 K-BB% offer a rosier picture of his performance.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Misses out on two-start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen isn't scheduled to receive the start Sunday against the Mets with the Marlins set to add Caleb Smith (hip) to the rotation this weekend, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Miami will close out the first half with a six-man rotation, as Smith is slated to return from the 10-day injured list to start Saturday in what will be his first outing with the big club since June 6, causing Gallen to miss out on a two-start week. Manager Don Mattingly has stated that he intends to pare down the rotation to five men following the All-Star break, with one of Gallen, Jordan Yamamoto or Elieser Hernandez expected to move to the bullpen or to Triple-A New Orleans. Through his first three big-league outings, Gallen has given up six runs on 12 hits and five walks while striking out 16 over 12 innings.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Leaves after second because of rain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen allowed two runs on three hits with one walk and two strikeouts across two innings during a no-decision against the Nationals on Tuesday.

The right-hander gave up a two-run homer in the first, and he didn't get to make up for that. Because of a rain delay, he left after the second inning. He avoided a second straight loss, but Gallen is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 16 strikeouts in 12 innings this season. Assuming the Marlins don't move him up in the rotation because he only threw 37 pitches Tuesday night, Gallen will start again on Sunday at the Braves.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Whiffs eight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen (0-1) allowed three earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking eight across five innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Nationals.

Gallen cruised through five frames, with the only hit he surrendered coming on an infield single by Adam Eaton. However, he allowed three consecutive singles to begin the sixth inning before being lifted having allowed one earned run. He was ultimately charged with two additional runs after Wei-Yin Chen yielded a three-run homer, allowing the inherited runners to score. Though that soured Gallen's effort, he still generated 15 swinging strikes on 91 total pitches and didn't allow an extra-base hit. While dealing in a small sample, Gallen has lived up to the hype since earning the call to the major leagues, allowing four earned runs across 10 innings while whiffing 14. He'll look to keep things going in his next start, currently scheduled as a rematch against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Strong in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings Thursday against the Cardinals. He didn't factor into the decision.

Gallen looked sharp in his first big-league action, though a high pitch count (99 pitches) forced him to exit the contest after five quality innings. His chief blemish of the night came in the fifth inning, when he allowed an RBI double to tie the game. Considering that Gallen turned in a solid performance, he should have a good chance to stick in the rotation while Pablo Lopez (shoulder) returns to health.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Promoted ahead of debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen had his contract selected from Triple-A New Orleans ahead of his scheduled start against the Cardinals on Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

As expected, Gallen is set to make his big-league debut in place of the injured Pablo Lopez (shoulder). The 23-year-old right-hander was dominant through 14 starts with New Orleans prior to earning a promotion, compiling a 1.77 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 112:17 K:BB in 91.1 innings. Gallen should have a good chance to stick in the rotation for more than one turn if he performs well Thursday. Jeff Brigham was optioned to Triple-A and Peter O'Brien was designated for assignment in a pair of corresponding roster moves.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Set for big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen will be promoted from Triple-A New Orleans to start Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Craig Mish of FNTSY reports.

Gallen is set to make his big-league debut after dominating in 14 starts for New Orleans, compiling a 1.77 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 112:17 K:BB in 91.1 innings. The young right-hander will replace Pablo Lopez -- who is reportedly headed to the injured list with a shoulder injury -- in the rotation, and he should have a good chance to stick around if he holds his own.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Bypassed for big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen tossed five scoreless frames and struck out five in Triple-A New Orleans' 4-3 loss to Sacramento. He scattered three hits and a walk in the 79-pitch outing.

While Gallen turned in another dominant showing to lower his ERA to a microscopic 1.57 across 86 innings at Triple-A, those stashing him in season-long formats probably would have preferred that he was skipped for this start. Gallen's appearance Sunday officially rules him out from joining the big-league rotation Tuesday against the Cardinals, when the Marlins will first require a replacement for the injured Caleb Smith (hip). Instead, Elieser Hernandez, who was scratched ahead of his start Saturday for New Orleans, now looks like the top candidate to fill in for Smith. Gallen should get his shot in the Miami rotation before long, though it's difficult to predict when he might get the call for an organization that isn't competing for a playoff spot in 2019.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Still dominating for New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen gave up one run on four hits and two walks over 6.2 innings while striking out eight for Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old was simply too much for Pacific Coast League hitters once again -- Iowa didn't even get a runner into scoring position against Gallen until the sixth inning in this one. He's allowed more than two runs in a start only once in 11 trips to the mound this season, and he still struck out 10 batters in that outing. Gallen will continue biding his time at Triple-A until the Marlins make room for him in the big-league rotation, but his 1.70 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and 88:13 K:BB through 74 innings are clear evidence he has nothing left to prove in the minors.

Marlins' Zac Gallen: Promotion doesn't seem imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallen may have to wait for an injury or a trade to open up a spot in the Marlins' rotation before making his big-league debut, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander has certainly earned a callup, posting a 1.16 ERA, 0.55 WHIP and 64:9 K:BB through 54.1 innings for Triple-A New Orleans, but Miami has used the same five starters all year so far and doesn't seem inclined to shake up that part of its roster. Gallen also isn't on the 40-man roster, although that's less of an obstacle than it might be in some other organizations given the Marlins' overall lack of talent. He'll continue to bide his time with the Baby Cakes for now.
