2023 Player Outlook
Gallegos may have racked up 14 saves for the second straight season, but he took a backseat to Ryan Helsley in the ninth inning. Gallegos was still solid for those that play in “solds” leagues (saves + holds), as he added 12 holds, three wins, an 11.14 K/9, and a 3.05 ERA to those 14 saves. After a rough start to the year, he settled in quite well, and if we remove those first seven innings from his season, he posted a 2.60 ERA with an 11.7 K/9 over 52 innings of work. Gallegos’ arsenal is highlighted by a slider that has posted a whiff rate above 40 percent in each of the last four seasons. He’s the next man up for saves in St. Louis, and he will improve your team’s ratios enough to be a later-round pick as a flier for saves, in case anything would happen to Helsley.
