    2k22 Zac Gallen

    Pretty rough 2021 for Zac, who went from a second tier stud to second rate. His underlying stats stayed about the same, though, so perhaps he's just closer to a 4.00 ERA guy than a 3.00 ERA guy. Thoughts?

    He scares me. Had a forearm strain last spring that delayed his season and then results weren’t there. Know a lot of people still seem high on him (Pitcher List is one (Nick Pollock and Alex Fast)) but in my NL last year I had him on a contract thru 2022 and essentially gave him away for free last summer to a contender as I wanted no part of the risk of that arm injury resurfacing.

    Couple the injury risk with a really bad Arizona team and basically I’m out.

    I'm with Big Tymer, unless he slips very, very late in a mixed league draft.

    We do only leagues. In my 5x5 we have 23 man rosters and 13 man reserves. I can't see me wasting a spot on him.

    That feels very wrong. He's certainly worth a reserve spot in an only league of any depth.

    Hmm...maybe a little strong.

    How about now? We do only leagues. In my 5x5 we have 23 man rosters. I can't see me wasting a spot on him.

    I'd like him a little more than you in a NL only league. I'd be willing to buy him in the endgame under the premise that if his arm blows up, I can drop him and get a halfway decent MR to slot in for him. And he has at least had success recently enough to merit hope for upside.

    Edit to add: Though he did turn into a veritable tater factory in the second half...wow.

    Injury concerns are obviously very real for Gallen but, to his credit, he did put up almost the same underlying stats last year as all other years. I guess I don't get how he's gone from a 3rd/4th round pick to undraftable / unrosterable.

    I agree with Bene. If I knew he'd stay healthy, I'd be super high on him. HIs new pitching coach has a track record of bringing talent to the next level too. I have him on a long term deal and I could give him away, but I won't. He is worth the risk to me. The injury risk is real, but he could be a top 20 pitcher this year, if healthy.

    Most of you are shockingly low on Gallen. He is risky, but the idea that he isn't worth a roster spot, even in a shallow mixed league, is crazy to me. He could end up winning people leagues if he is taken in the late rounds or dollar days.
