Zac Gallen will have to 'earn' fifth starter job

Steve Gilbert of writes Zac Gallen will have to earn the final spot in Arizona's rotation this spring.

Fantasy Impact

D'Backs manager Torey Lovullo indicated that Gallen will get "strong consideration" for the job but wouldn't fully commit to the young right-hander. Madison Bumgarner, Robbie Ray, Mike Leake, and Luke Weaver figure to get the first four spots. That would leave Gallen competing with Alex Young and Merrill Kelly for the final turn through the order. There's an argument to be made that Gallen is currently the best pitcher on the Diamondbacks pitching staff so we aren't too worried about him winning the job. He posted 2.5 WAR in just 80 innings between Miami and Arizona last season.

Zac Gallen having Saturday start skipped

Zac Gallen will not pitch on Saturday versus the Padres.

Fantasy Impact

Arizona is trying to limit Gallen's innings down the stretch. Luke Weaver and a host of relievers will pitch in his place today.

Zac Gallen strikes out nine in losing effort

Zac Gallen took the loss on Tuesday against the Mets despite throwing a quality start, allowing three runs on five hits over six innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Gallen struck out nine and walked two in the outing, which Arizona went on to lose 3-2. The 24-year-old has yet to allow more than three earned runs in any start at the big league level this season. The fantastic rookie will carry a 2.66 ERA into his next start versus the Reds.

Zac Gallen dominates the Padres on Wednesday night

Zac Gallen carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning on Wednesday versus the Padres, finishing with seven scoreless frames of one-hit ball.

Fantasy Impact

Gallen struck out eight and walked one in the superb performance. The 24-year-old has been sensational since being promoted to the majors this year, posting a 2.50 ERA with 82 strikeouts in 68 1/3 innings. He'll remain a must-start fantasy option next time out against the Mets.

Zac Gallen strikes out six versus Dodgers

Zac Gallen received a no-decision on Friday against the Dodgers, giving up three runs on five hits over five innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Gallen struck out six and walked just one. While it wasn't a quality start, he still looked impressive in a tough matchup. The 24-year-old now owns a 2.79 ERA on the year and will remain must-start next time out against the Padres.
