Joey Gallo hit his 39th homer of the year Monday in the Rangers' loss to the Astros.

It was a solo shot off Astros starter Collin McHugh in the bottom of the second inning. Gallo then singled in the bottom of the seventh, finishing the night 2-for-4 with one RBI and one run scored. The 23-year-old slugger is batting .209/.331/.532 over 139 games played in 2017.

Joey Gallo crushed his 38th home run of the season as the Rangers topped the Angels on Sunday in Los Angeles.

His solo shot in the second inning increased the Rangers' early lead to 3-0 and proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Gallo finished the day 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts. He's now hitting .211/.337/.546 with the aforementioned 38 bombs and 75 RBI.

Joey Gallo finished 1-for-2 with a double and a walk in Saturday's road loss against the Angels.

Gallo has managed just one RBI over his past eight games, as he appears to have hit a bit of a wall in his first full season in the majors. Still, 2017 has been a success since he has 37 homers and 74 RBI across 408 at-bats.

Joey Gallo clubbed a solo homer and drew a walk Friday against the Angels.

Gallo has hit safely in all four games — including two homers and five RBI — since returning from his concussion. The 23-year-old is batting just .207 on the year, but he’s proving that batting average isn’t the be-all and end-all. He’s now tied with Aaron Judge for the AL lead with 37 homers and his OPS sits at .897.

Rangers activated INF/OF Joey Gallo from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Gallo missed exactly one week with a concussion and nasal fracture. He is starting in left field and batting fifth in his return to action Tuesday versus Astros right-hander Mike Fiers.

Joey Gallo (concussion) is expected to be activated when first eligible on Tuesday.

It appears that Gallo's concussion symptoms are in the rear view mirror. "I've been on the field the past two days, hitting in batting practice and getting into baseball shape," Gallo said Saturday. "I feel healthy. I feel normal. That's a good sign."

Rangers placed INF/OF Joey Gallo on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Gallo suffered a concussion and a nasal fracture when he collided with teammate Matt Bush on Sunday afternoon. It sounds like the Rangers believe he will be ready for activation when first eligible on August 29. Phil Gosselin has been recalled from Triple-A Round Rock in a corresponding roster move.

Joey Gallo is experiencing concussion symptoms and did not travel with the Rangers to Anaheim.

Gallo also suffered a nasal fracture as a result of a collision with teammate Matt Bush on Sunday. The Rangers are holding off placing Gallo on the concussion disabled list for now in hopes that he'll make a quick recovery. As is the case with all concussions, though, that's anything but a guarantee. Gallo is a risky fantasy play this week. Ryan Rua has been recalled and is getting a start in left field Monday.

The Rangers have Ryan Rua en route to Anaheim in case Joey Gallo needs to go on the disabled list because of his nasal fracture.

Gallo was hurt in a collision with Matt Bush on Sunday. Rua would enter the DH mix with catchers Brett Nicholas and Robinson Chirinos if Gallo is forced to the DL. We'll probably know more later this afternoon.

Joey Gallo suffered a non-displaced nasal fracture during his collision with teammate Matt Bush on Sunday.

He'll be re-examined on Monday before potentially joining the team in Los Angeles. In addition to the nose injury, he'll have to pass through the concussion protocol before he's cleared to rejoin the Rangers. It remains unclear if he'll require a trip to the disabled list, but it seems likely he'll miss at least a couple of games.

Joey Gallo was removed from Sunday's game against the White Sox after colliding with teammate Matt Bush while converging on a pop fly in the eighth inning.

Gallo was hit in the head during the exchange and suffered swelling in his nose and upper lip. He'll head for precautionary X-rays of his nose and cheek bone to rule out any structural damage. He'll also have to pass through the concussion protocol before being cleared to return to game action.

Joey Gallo hit his ninth homer of the month and 34th of the year Tuesday against the Tigers.

He also walked and scored a second run. That run is notable; he'd been driven in just once in his previous 17 games. The Rangers have slowly moved him up in the lineup, but they still won't go any higher than fifth with him.
Tue, Aug 15, 2017 11:52:00 PM

Joey Gallo slugged his 33rd home run of the year Monday in the Rangers' 6-2 defeat of the Tigers.

It was a towering shot to center field in the bottom of the third inning off Tigers starter Michael Fulmer. Gallo entered the night in a bit of an offensive rut and he's batting just .207 with a .322 OBP in 107 total games this season, but the young slugger is currently on pace for 46 home runs and 86 RBI.
