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.

Zac Gallen will have to 'earn' fifth starter job

Steve Gilbert of MLB.com 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.
