 Steve Gilbert of MLB.com writes Zac Gallen will have to earn the final spot in Arizona's rotation this spring.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma

The Phillies and closer Hector Neris avoided arbitration by reaching an agreement on a one-year $4.6 million deal. The contract includes a $7 million option for 2021.

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
Neris tested positive for COVID-19 but is back in camp and looks good to go for the regular season. He morphed into a reliable option in the ninth inning for the Phillies last year, and should be so again assuming his health permits.
Dan Harris - 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
If Neris is the guy in Philly, he'll finish a lot higher than the 153rd player.
Michael Waterloo - 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.
