Gallen built on his excellent 2019 season with an even more impressive 2020 campaign. Not only did he drop his ERA slightly to 2.75, but he cut way down on his walks (10.8% to 8.6%), which led to a much-improved 1.11 WHIP. Gallen has a 28.5% strikeout rate in 152 MLB innings, and an excellent fastball, curveball, and changeup. There's just not much negative you can say about him other than he might again struggle for wins playing for a mediocre team in a good division. But, as always, wins are fickle in fantasy baseball, and he should be drafted as a strong SP2.

Zac Gallen gives up a pair of hits and walks in Cactus League debut

Zac Gallen pitched two scoreless innings in his Cactus League debut on Sunday. He allowed two hits and two walks while striking out one in Arizona's 5-2 loss to the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Gallen struggled with his command in the first inning when he walked back-to-back batters before settling down. He then gave up back-to-back singles in the second inning but he stranded the runners in both cases so no real damage was done. The 25-year-old righty was a stud for the D-backs last season when he registered a 2.75 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 82:25 K/BB ratio over 72 innings. He should once again operate as Arizona's ace this year and is a quality SP2 option in fantasy drafts.
