Joey Gallo went 1-for-3 with a homer, a walk, and two runs scored Monday in the Rangers' loss to the Yankees.

Gallo clubbed a second-inning solo shot off Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka for his 14th home run of the season. He's batting .201 with a .281 on-base percentage, but the 24-year-old slugger has managed to tally 31 RBI and 27 runs scored in 48 games.

Joey Gallo had three hits and knocked in three runs Friday against the White Sox.

Gallo doubled and reached on a pair of singles. We all know the power is his calling card, but he’s already up to 16 singles through 44 games this season after amassing 32 singles all of last season.

Joey Gallo told reporters that he's against the idea of playing third base again.

"I don't want. I don't like it," Gallo said on Wednesday. "I hate it, no joke. I hate third base. I'd rather catch. No joke." Tell us how you really feel, Joey. Gallo did also say that he'd make the switch if asked, but it doesn't sound like he's going to make the switch with Adrian Beltre on the disabled list, and it sure doesn't sound like the power-hitting outfielder is going to volunteer.

Joey Gallo went 2-for-5 with a homer on Tuesday in a loss to the Mariners.

The homer is the 13th of the season, and it came off of Mike Leake to the opposite field in the sixth inning. He also drew a walk, and he's now slashing .205/.287/.487 to go along with the 13 homers and 27 RBI in 42 games with the Rangers in 2018.

Joey Gallo is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off for the slugger after he went deep twice Saturday. Ronald Guzman is at first base and Ryan Rua is in left field.
May 6 - 11:59 AM

Joey Gallo hit a pair of solo homers in a loss to the Red Sox on Saturday.

Gallo took Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez deep twice, once in the second inning and again in the sixth. In both instances, he crushed the ball, leaving little doubt they were gone. That gives Gallo 12 homers through 35 games this year, and he's second in the AL with his 12 dongs. He's got 24 RBI and 22 runs scored with a .223/.303/.531 line on the year.
May 5 - 11:56 PM

Joey Gallo slugged his 10th home run of the year Wednesday in the Rangers’ loss to Cleveland.

Gallo launched a solo shot off two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber in the seventh inning. He struck out and flied out in his other two plate appearances. With Texas trailing 10-4 in the eighth, the Rangers pulled Gallo for Ryan Rua, who finished the afternoon in left field. Gallo is tied for second in the majors with 10 long balls, but is hitting just .225 with 40 punch-outs in 120 at-bats.
May 2 - 4:57 PM

Joey Gallo drilled a go-ahead, solo home run in the 12th inning of Tuesday's win over the Indians.

The Rangers were headed for a deflating loss after they served up a game-tying grand slam in the ninth inning, but Gallo delivered a no-doubt game-winner in extras. It was the slugger's ninth longball of the campaign. Only five players have hit more.
May 1 - 10:44 PM

Joey Gallo blasted his eighth home run of the season on Friday, helping to power the Rangers to a 6-4 victory over the Blue Jays.

Gallo crushed a two-run homer off of Marcus Stroman in the first inning, staking the Rangers to an early 4-0 lead. He also singled and scored in the sixth inning, finishing the night 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. He's now hitting .240/.315/.520 with eight long balls and 19 RBI on the season.
Apr 27 - 10:26 PM

Joey Gallo matched a career high with three hits in three at-bats with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's 4-2 win against the Athletics.

All of Gallo's hits were singles, including a bunt against the shift. He was able to bump up his average from .204 to .229 with the three-hit game. Gallo is still a liability to fantasy owners in the batting average department despite the three-hit game, but it has been nice to see him developing a more discerning eye lately. Since April 17 he has a walk in seven of his past eight games, and he has struck out just once over his past five outings.
Apr 26 - 1:03 AM

Joey Gallo went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Mariners.

Gallo showed off his prodigious power in the fourth inning, launching a high fly ball to the opposite field that cleared the wall for his seventh homer of the year. That's tied for third-most in the American League, and his 16 RBI also rank among the league leaders. His batting average leaves something to be desired, but Gallo's power makes him a good bet to finish near the top of the league in homers when the season ends.
Apr 22 - 7:02 PM

Joey Gallo is not in the Rangers' lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners.

With James Paxton on the hill for the M's, the left-handed hitting Gallo will take a rest. Ronald Guzman is starting at first base in Gallo's absence. The 24-year-old is hitting .202/.256/.452 with six homers, 14 RBI and 11 runs scored in 21 games this year.
Apr 21 - 4:14 PM

Joey Gallo slugged his sixth homer of the season -- a solo shot -- Monday against the Rays.

Gallo has now homered in three out of his last four games. While the power has been as advertised, he's only drawn three walks in 77 plate appearances. That's well off the pace he had last year, when he walked in 14.1 percent of his plate appearances. We're still dealing with small samples here, so things should get back to normal soon, but Gallo is still unlikely to help fantasy owners much in the batting average department.
Apr 17 - 10:07 AM

Joey Gallo went 2-for-5 and clubbed a two-run homer in a win over the Astros on Saturday.

He took relief ace Brad Peacock over the wall with a runner aboard in the eighth inning. The young slugger also doubled in the ballgame and improved his season line to .212/.246/.485 with five home runs and 13 RBI. He strikes out a ton and will probably always have a frighteningly low batting average.
