The Philadelphia Phillies can't string together offense, and now they're going up against Zac Gallen, a legit CY Young candidate this season. Gallen has a 2.95 ERA and 1.00 WHIP through 61 innings. Ranger Suarez is still working his way into the season with just 6 innings under his belt. This line being this soft is astounding if we're being honest. Give me the Diamondbacks and the cheap price.
