  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Faces batters Sunday

    Gallen tossed a live batting-practice session Sunday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    This was the first time facing batters this spring for Gallen, who is prepping for his scheduled Cactus League debut Friday. "I felt all right," the right-hander said. "I mean, I still feel a little rushed, but that's just a timing thing. I think that just comes with time of getting used to seeing hitters again." Gallen, who threw a career-high 243.2 innings combined between the regular season and playoffs in 2023, is being brought along slowly this spring but should be Arizona's Opening Day starter.

  • Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: First Cactus League start set

    Gallen is set to make his first Cactus League start March 1 against the Reds, Jack Magruder of MLB.com reports.

    Gallen, projected as Arizona's No. 1 starter, tossed a career-high 243.2 innings in 2023, including the postseason. Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo talked about building up both Gallen and No. 2 starter Merrill Kelly, who threw a career-high 201.2 innings. "Obviously the buildup is of maximum concern -- we want to make sure they are at a certain pitch limit for their first start of the year," Lovullo said. Gallen was 17-9 with a 3.47 ERA (3.26 FIP) and 1.12 WHIP over 34 regular-season starts last season.

    Gallen took the mound for Saturday's Game 5, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks while fanning one over six innings. Despite tossing 93 pitches only a few days ago, he'll be ready to go in relief if called upon with a chance to go to the World Series on the line.
