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. Jun 30 - 3:17 PM

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.

Joey Gallo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers.

Gallo put on his big boy pants against the Dodgers and launched a two-run homer off of Clayton Kershaw in the third inning. The bomb was his fifth and gave him 10 RBI for the year. Gallo's been all kinds of awesome since his call-up on June 2 and is hitting .260/.362/.580 over 50 at-bats.

Joey Gallo is making his first major league start in left field on Monday.

Gallo made six starts at the position at Double-A Frisco earlier this season. The Rangers' plan when they promoted Gallo was to send him back down once Adrian Beltre (thumb) was ready, but them trying him out in the outfield would seem to be an indication that he could be around for the long haul. Gallo has batted .300/.391/.625 with four home runs, 11 RBI and two stolen bases over his first 11 games.
Jun 15 - 4:16 PM

Joey Gallo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

Gallo hit a 441-foot homer on Saturday. Sunday's second-inning solo shot off Phil Hughes didn't cover quite as much ground (a mere 417 feet), but counted for the same number of RBI. The 21-year-old stud finished the game 1-for-4. Through his first 11 games in the bigs, Gallo is 12-for-40 with four homers, a double and seven RBI. He's a star in the making.
Jun 14 - 6:26 PM

Joey Gallo hit a massive solo homer in Saturday's win over the Twins.

Gallo's 441-foot bomb put a loud exclamation point on a six-run fourth inning. The homer came in his only at-bat of the game. Twins pitchers walked him in each of his other three plate appearances. Gallo holds a somewhat lopsided 15/6 K/BB ratio now and it's good to see the 21-year-old exercising some patience. He's 11-for-36 with three homers, a double and six RBI in his first 10 major league games.
Jun 13 - 9:50 PM

Joey Gallo was hitless in three at-bats Friday against the Twins.

Gallo got the day off Thursday and saw his four-game hitting streak come to an end Friday. The good news is that this marked the first time that he didn't strike out in a game. The 21-year-old is batting .286 (10-for-35) through his first nine games in the majors, but has an ugly 15/3 K/BB ratio.
Jun 12 - 11:46 PM

Joey Gallo is not in the Rangers' lineup Thursday.

It's the first day off for Gallo since his promotion to the majors on June 2. Adam Rosales will start at third base Thursday against A's left-hander Scott Kazmir.
Jun 11 - 1:58 PM

Joey Gallo went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts Friday against the Royals.

Yes, the golden sombrero. Obviously, Gallo has tremendous power, as evidenced by home runs in back-to-back games to start his career, but he's now struck out 10 times over his first 18 plate appearances in the majors.
Jun 5 - 11:36 PM

Joey Gallo struck out three consecutive times before hitting a solo home run in the ninth inning Wednesday as the Rangers lost to the White Sox.

Gallo was a candidate for the vaunted golden sombrero, but avoided it when he took lefty reliever Zach Duke deep to lead off the ninth inning. The 21-year-old has homered in each of his first two major league games. Not a bad way to kickstart a career.
Jun 3 - 11:14 PM

Joey Gallo homered and finished 3-for-4 with four RBI in the Rangers' 15-2 trouncing of the White Sox on Tuesday.

Making his much-anticipated debut, Gallo didn't disappoint. After coming through with a two-run single in the first inning, Gallo displayed his prodigious power with a two-run home run in the third. He'll strike out a lot, but the 21-year-old also has exciting power that makes him fantasy relevant for however long he's in the majors.
Jun 2 - 11:01 PM

Joey Gallo is batting sixth in his major league debut Tuesday night against the White Sox.

That seems like a pretty appropriate spot in the Rangers' lineup for the 21-year-old slugger. Gallo was called up from Double-A Frisco on Tuesday morning to handle third base while Adrian Beltre (thumb) is on the shelf and he's worth a shot in most mixed fantasy leagues for his incredible raw power.
