Much of Gallen’s rookie season success rode on the strength of his lively changeup, generating a nifty 21.3% swinging-strike rate, got batters swinging out of the zone at a 45.3% chase rate, and induced a 64.5% ground-ball rate. The change-of-speed offering, good for a 6.0 pVAL, neutralized batters to a .160 BAA, .040 ISO, and .211 wOBA.

Buouyed by a 45.2% chase rate, Gallen’s curveball almost sported Money Pitch potential if it could have found the zone a little more often (36.9% zone rate) and missed just a couple more bats (14.8% swinging-strike rate). Baseball Savant notes Gallen’s curve has a below average spin rate, in the 37th percentile.
