Miami Marlins number 18 prospect Zac Gallen is putting up staggering numbers for the Baby Cakes.

In the seventh game of an eight-game series last night, Zac Gallen (5-0, 1.16) limited the San Antonio Missions to one run on two hits, striking out seven in seven innings.

Gallen has walked nine batters all season over 55 1/3 innings. He’s struck out 64 and allowed 21 hits, racking up an oppBA of .117 and a 0.55 WHIP. Gallen has only allowed more than three hits one time this season, and in that game, on April 22nd, he earned the victory and didn’t give up any runs. Sources indicate that he’ll likely get called up later this month.
