Diamondbacks’ Gallen has sore forearm, might miss opener

The Arizona Diamondbacks might be missing their best pitcher on opening day. Starter Zac Gallen is being evaluated for soreness in his right forearm and his status is uncertain to begin the season on April 1. The 25-year-old Gallen said he first felt the injury when he was jammed during batting practice about 10 days ago. Gallen went 3-2 with a 2.75 ERA during the pandemic-shortened season, striking out 82 in 72 innings. Elsewhere around spring training, Houston star José Altuve lined into a triple play and Angels slugger Mike Trout drove in three runs during a 10-run inning.
