Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 55 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 55 | Overall: 40

Signed for $100,000 out of Mexico in 2011, Gallegos had Tommy John surgery before he made his pro debut. He got back on the mound in 2012 and didn't do much to distinguish himself until a strong winter in the Mexican Pacific League in 2014. He has progressed rapidly since and made his big league debut in 2017, when he served four different stints in New York. He had pitched in four big league games last year before being dealt with Chasen Shreve to the Cardinals for Luke Voit.

Gallegos has a quick arm, and his fastball has risen from 90-93 mph when he was a starter to 93-96 mph now that he's a reliever. His heater can get flat at the higher end of his velocity range, so he needs to be careful to keep it down in the zone. He has a second above-average pitch in a low-80s curveball and does a nice job of manipulating its spin and shape. Gallegos has a fringy changeup from his days in the rotation and occasionally will use it against left-handers, but it represents a distant third pitch for him.

Gallegos has pounded the strike zone throughout his career and isn't afraid to challenge big leaguers, though he does have a tendency to catch too much of the plate with both his heater and breaking ball. He has a higher floor than ceiling, looking like a good bet to become a seventh-inning reliever.
