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.

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

Nomar Mazara and Jurickson Profar were also cut from Rangers camp Monday morning. Gallo registered a 1.071 OPS with three home runs and seven RBI in 34 plate appearances this spring in the Cactus League. He figures to play a significant role with the major league team at some point in 2016 and the power stroke should have dynasty owners salivating. Plate discipline remains an issue.

Joey Gallo went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 5-4 Cactus League win over the Indians.

Gallo's sixth hit this spring was also his third home run. He added a single later, adding to his exceptionally good day. Gallo has had issues with making contact in the past, but one thing has always been certain: his power. If he can right some of those plate-discipline issues early this season at Triple-A, we should see him in Arlington, Texas before long. The big bat remains highly attractive.
Mar 15 - 7:28 PM

Joey Gallo went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and two runs scored against the Brewers on Friday.

The three-run homer was a legitimate bomb, as it landed far off into the berm beyond the right field fence. Gallo came into Friday with two hits and six strikeouts through his first 11 at-bats this spring. We know he can hit the ball a long way, but making contact on a regular basis will be the key to him unlocking his long-term potential. He's expected to begin 2016 back in Triple-A.
Mar 11 - 6:14 PM

Joey Gallo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, helping the Rangers outlast the Mariners on Tuesday.

Gallo launched a Tony Zych offering over the fence in right field, bolstering the Rangers' lead to 8-4 in the eighth inning. It's his first homer since being recalled on September 2, and his sixth homer on the year. He's also batting .214/.300/.449 with 14 RBI in 110 plate appearances.

Joey Gallo went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and a walk against the Angels on Friday.

As mediocre as Gallo was in Triple-A, it's hard to see why the Rangers would play him over Will Venable, a superior defensive left fielder. Gallo also struck out all three times up in his first start back in the majors Wednesday. He'll be a bit player in September unless he can get hot in a hurry.

Rangers recalled 3B/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.

Gallo faded after a hot start with the Rangers and then hit just .195 after being demoted to Round Rock. Still, he's obviously very intriguing with his power and could get some starts in left field with Josh Hamilton (knee) limited to pinch-hitting duty at the moment.

Rangers 3B/OF prospect Joey Gallo drove in four runs Sunday in a win for Triple-A Round Rock.

He betled a grand slam as part of a seven-run fourth inning. Gallo also struck out three times. The power-hitting 21-year-old has slugged seven homers over his last nine games, though he's hit just .237 with 18 punch-outs over that span. Including his 25-game stint in the major leagues, Gallo has homered 26 times this year with 149 strikeouts.

Joey Gallo hammered a two-run homer Sunday for Triple-A Round Rock.

The Rangers sent Gallo back to Round Rock in late June to make room for Josh Hamilton. So far he's hit just .186 in 43 at-bats, though his power numbers have been outstanding (three homers, nine RBI). Despite his low contact rate, the 21-year-old offers massive upside and should be an everyday player in the major leagues by next season, if not sooner.

Rangers optioned 3B/OF Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock.

Gallo was sent out with Josh Hamilton (hamstring) coming back from the disabled list. The 21-year-old batted .218/.306/.448 with five home runs and a 43/11 K/BB ratio over 98 plate appearances during his first stint in the majors. He has massive long-term potential, but some more time in the minors is the best thing for him right now.

Joey Gallo went 1-for-5 with four strikeouts and a three-run triple as the Rangers trampled the Orioles on Monday.

Gallo's all-or-nothing approach continues. His three-run triple came in the seventh, officially turning Monday's win into a laugher. The four strikeouts bring him up to 43 in 98 plate appearances, a 44 percent strikeout rate. Gallo owns a .218/.306/.448 batting line with five home runs and 13 RBI since debuting on June 2.

Joey Gallo is making his first career start in center field on Saturday.

Gallo has been scuffling at the plate after a hot start, but the Rangers are still trying to find creative ways to get his bat in the lineup. The 21-year-old has never logged an inning in center field in his professional career, so it'll be interesting to see how the experiment works out. He'll be flanked by Ryan Rua and Shin-Soo Choo in the corners.

Joey Gallo is not in the Rangers' lineup Friday.

Gallo has scuffled of late since a hot start, batting just .154/.185/.231 over his last seven games. Ryan Rua is in left field Friday.

Joey Gallo is not in the Rangers starting lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox.

It's just a day of rest for the young slugger against tough southpaw Carlos Rodon. Through his first 16 games in the big leagues, Gallo is slashing .224/.318/.500 with five homers and 10 RBI, though he has struck out 27 times in only 66 plate appearances. Ryan Rua is getting the start in left field while Adam Rosales handles the hot corner.
