  • Gallen made the longest outing of his short pro career last night. The 3rd round pick in 2016 made his debut in late July last season and had only made (3) two-inning starts to close out 2016. The righty also made his second straight scoreless outing in going 14 innings without allowing a run. Gallen was drafted as a control artist out of North Carolina University, which is evident of his 51:8 K:BB ratio over 43 innings.
