You have no idea if AZ would have done the trade for any of the other pitchers. And you can't say it was a really bad trade for Miami just because you personally don't think Jazz is good. What are you even basing that evaluation on?


I’m not BBT, but just guessing, I’d say maybe his milb career 30% k-rate (32% this yr)...or his paltry career .327 OBP...or uninspiring career .788 OPS. I’m not being snarky btw, but rather I’m trying to offer some reasons. I’ve never actually seen him play, but I know he’s someone that is considered fo have a lot of promise. Looking at those, I can understand why BBT wouldn’t be high on him. Maybe he has other reasons.

I watched a lot of it, some good deception with his stride/delivery, chart was pretty solid: FB- averaged 93 MPH, touched 95, great vert action with it, threw 29--18 for strikes with 12 swings bu

Yeah a pretty nice chart here: FA- pretty similar to last outing at 93+MPH on average, great vertical break, threw 47--30 for strikes with 19 swings and 5 whiffs--all which are marked increases f

Great start and heck of a chart tonight: FA- sat 93+with awesome vertical action on, threw 42--29 for strikes with 17 cuts and 6 whiffs KC- yep the ol knuckle curve, beautiful sweeping shape

I think it is too early to judge the Gallen/Jazz swap.  It was definitely a nice buy low/ sell high swap in the sense that Jazz was a top 100 preseason prospect and Gallen was a no name.  It is not surprising that Gallen would deliver early MLB returns since he has a premium changeup, next year will be the real test after hitters adjust.  Jazz is still a legit power speed threat and true shortstop so he could turn into something.

(6 hrs ago) Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Gallen may not pitch again this season, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Lovullo said Gallen's scheduled start Saturday is being skipped in favor of Luke Weaver (elbow) returning from the injured list, and then acknowledged it is possible Gallen will not pitch again this season. The rookie right-hander has thrown a career-high 171.1 innings combined between the majors and minors, so the team was already thinking about capping his season. Earlier this month, Lovullo said they would continue to use Gallen as long as the playoffs were a possibility. Arizona entered play Friday technically still alive for a wild-card spot, albeit facing long odds.
