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
Wouldn't it be the most Robbie Ray thing in the world if he got pulled at 4.2 innings each start this year? Great strikeouts, bad command. We know who he is.
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
While the overall numbers fluctuate, Ray is largely the same guy he's always been. He's going to amass a ton of strikeouts and he's going to hand out free passes like a doctor handing out lollipops. It is just impossible to rely on a starter who can't top 175 innings or keep his WHIP below 1.33. Ray is certainly rosterable but close your eyes when he's pitching.
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.
