Notes 
 It was surprising when the Marlins decided to trade Gallen to Arizona, but we are talking about a franchise that also traded Luis Castillo and Chris Paddack away. Gallen has a nice four-pitch mix, and if he replicates his minor- and major-league success from 2019, you're looking at a Top 50 pick in 2021.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Price is another one of those veterans who are boring but will be extra valuable this year by giving you solid, non-elite innings. He's a big value gainer with the move to the NL West from the AL East.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Gallen was so absurdly dominant in Triple-A in 2019 that his MLB performance, while highly impressive, felt slightly disappointing. But his fastball, curveball, and changeup were all plus pitches in the majors, and there's every reason to expect him to continue to grow as a pitcher. There's somehow some question mark around his rotation spot, but cream usually rises to the top, and he should not only be one of the Diamondbacks' five starters, but he should excel. Expect excellent overall numbers and draft him accordingly.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Although Price's 2019 numbers look ugly, remember that he had a low-3.00 ERA before giving up 20 runs over a four-start stretch after he was bothered by a cyst in his wrist. He had the highest strikeout rate of his career and his lowest FIP and xFIP since 2016. Now in the National League with the Dodgers, Price should have plenty left to give fantasy owners. Just downgrade your innings projections, as the Dodgers will likely look to keep Price's workload in check in preparation for the postseason.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 With innings come strikeouts for Gallen and 2020 is the year he pitches more of them and becomes a relevant Fantasy SP. He is a steal currently and Fantasy owners need to load up on their shares.
