Rangers recalled INF/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.
Gallo struggled down the stretch in Triple-A and ultimately finished with a .240/.367/.529 batting line to go along with 25 homers over 102 games. The 22-year-old still has promise for the long-term, but he's unlikely to play a significant role this month. Sep 6 - 3:02 PM

Rangers optioned INF/OF Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock.

The Rangers were able to acquire Jonathan Lucroy and Carlos Beltran on Monday without parting with Gallo, but now there's no room for him on the active roster. The young slugger will try to try to earn his way back with his production in the minors.
Aug 1 - 7:20 PM

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports that Joey Gallo would be the centerpiece if the Rangers and Brewers are able to complete a trade involving Jonathan Lucroy.

Passan adds that the two sides have been "talking for days." With the Indians and Mets out of the mix, this feels like a logical match. Gallo has bust potential with his swing-and-miss tendencies, but it's hard to find another prospect with his massive power. He'd be a big get for rebuilding Milwaukee.

TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Brewers are likely seeking Joey Gallo in a potential deal for Jonathan Lucroy.

After the Brewers deal with the Indians fell through, it looks as though they are still shopping their All-Star backstop, with the Rangers emerging as the favorites. Gallo has his warts with the swing-and-miss in his game, but has prodigious power and would be fun to watch at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

Joey Gallo hit his first home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Athletics.

So it begins. Gallo muscled a Sonny Gray pitch to left-center in the fifth inning to get the Rangers on the board. It was his only hit in four at-bats, and he struck out in two of the four at-bats. That's a typical Gallo night, as he'll strike out plenty but he hits it plenty far when he makes contact. The power makes him fantasy relevant, but the propensity to swing and miss makes him a high-risk, high-reward player.

Joey Gallo is starting at first base and batting sixth on Tuesday night against the Athletics.

Mitch Moreland is at designated hitter and Jurickson Profar is starting at shortstop. Gallo will probably get the majority of his playing time at first base, with Moreland seeing a dip in action. The 22-year-old slugger was sporting a .939 OPS with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in 70 games this season at Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers recalled INF/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.

Gallo has posted a .939 OPS with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in 70 games this season at the Triple-A level. Plate discipline remains an issue for the 22-year-old, but he has incredible raw power and could take on significant fantasy value if he finds a good offensive groove and regular playing time in Texas. Gallo has appeared in 23 games at first base and 33 games at third base this year with Round Rock. He played a lot of left field last year.
Jul 26 - 5:35 PM

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports the Rangers are willing to trade Joey Gallo for a long-term starting pitcher.

The Rangers have been talking to the Rays about acquiring one of their starting pitchers and Gallo, who was previously thought to be off limits, could be part of the return package if the two sides strike a deal. Gallo is still a power-hitting behemoth but he hasn't been able to crack the Rangers' lineup with Adrian Beltre occupying third base and Shin-Shoo Choo and Nomar Mazara blocking his path at corner outfield. The 22-year-old has hit .250 this year with 16 HR and 40 RBI in 216 at-bats for Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers OF prospect Joey Gallo matched a career-high with four hits Thursday in Triple-A Round Rock's loss to Memphis.

He homered and drove in three runs as the Express were handed a 13-7 defeat. The 22-year-old has been a steady source of power for Round Rock, collecting 15 HR with 38 RBI this season. Despite missing time with a groin injury, Gallo still ranks sixth in the Pacific Coast League with 40 walks. He's only seen one at-bat in the major leagues this year with Nomar Mazara and Shin-Soo Choo manning the two corner outfield spots in Texas.

Rangers optioned INF/OF Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock.

Gallo was with the club for just a couple of days as an extra bat, and he saw just one at-bat during his stay. He'll head back to Round Rock where he'll undoubtedly crush Triple-A pitching until he is needed once more.

Rangers recalled INF/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.

Gallo missed three weeks with a strained groin, but he went 5-for-16 with a homer and four RBI in four games since returning to action. Interestingly, he made a start at first base on Sunday, which could be an option with Mitch Moreland and Prince Fielder struggling. He hasn't played the outfield at all this season, but the Rangers figure to give him some looks there with Shin-Soo Choo and Drew Stubbs now both on the disabled list. Assuming the playing time is there, the young slugger is worth a flier in most fantasy formats. Expect plenty of strikeouts, but the power potential is huge.
May 23 - 7:18 PM

Joey Gallo was activated from Triple-A Round Rock's disabled list on Thursday.

Gallo missed three weeks with a strained groin. The 22-year-old has always had a low contact rate but his power is off the charts. He got his feet wet with 36 games in Texas last season and should get another shot with the big club later this year.
May 19 - 10:06 PM

Joey Gallo (groin) will head to extended spring training in Arizona on Saturday.

Gallo is rehabbing a strained groin that he suffered late last month. He's hoping to be activated next weekend. Gallo is a deeply flawed prospect with huge strikeout totals but his overwhelming power should land him a full-time gig in the major leagues in relatively short order.
May 12 - 7:26 PM

Joey Gallo has been placed on Triple-A Round Rock's disabled list with a strained left groin.

Gallo insists that it's a minor strain and that he expects to be back soon, but even minor groin strains typically take 3-4 weeks. He's hitting .254/.400/.642 with seven homers and 16 RBI for Round Rock this season.
May 1 - 1:29 PM

Rangers 3B/OF prospect Joey Gallo mashed two homers Saturday in a win for Triple-A Round Rock.

He plated four runs as Round Rock rolled to an easy 9-3 victory over Iowa. Saturday was Gallo's first multi-hit game of the season. Gallo has been a legendary power hitter at the minor league level though he continues to struggle with high strikeout totals and a low batting average. The 22-year-old will join Texas at some point this year.
