  • Giovanny Gallegos Won't Make Spring Debut Saturday

    St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Giovanny Gallegos will not make his spring training debut in Saturday's Grapefruit League game as he continues to adjust to MLB's new pitch-clock timer in 2023. Last year, Gallegos averaged 25.8 seconds between pitches with nobody on base, which tied Yankees pitcher Jonathan Loaisiga for the slowest tempo. Per MLB's new rules, pitchers will be required to begin their pitching motion 15 seconds after they've received the ball if the bases are empty. It expands to 20 seconds with runners on base. Gallegos had the second-slowest time (30.8 seconds) in 2022 with runners on. The 31-year-old right-hander lost the closing gig last year to Ryan Helsley, but he finished with a 3.05 ERA, 12 holds, 14 saves and 73 K's in 59 innings. It will be interesting to see if the quicker tempo for pitchers in 2023 has a negative impact on Gallegos.

  • Giovanny Gallegos Adjusting To Pitch Timer

    St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Giovanny Gallegos knows that he'll need to pick up his pace on the mound in 2023 given the changes to MLB rules -- pitchers are now mandated to throw a pitch within 15 seconds of receiving the ball from the catcher with the bases empty. Gallegos was one of baseball's slowest workers on the mound last year with the bases empty. "It's hard for me. It's a new experience and a big challenge for me," Gallegos said. "I am trying to make some adjustments about the timing, but it's a big change." The 31-year-old said he had a faster pace when he came up with the New York Yankees as a starter, but his tempo slowed as a reliever. He converted only 14 of 20 save chances in 2022 and lost the closing gig to Ryan Helsley. Even without saves, Gallegos is valuable in holds leagues after posting a 3.05 ERA with 73 K's in 59 innings pitched.
