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.
Aug 29 - 5:12 PM

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."
Aug 26 - 4:59 PM

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.
Aug 22 - 6:37 PM

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.
Aug 21 - 6:12 PM

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.
Aug 21 - 1:09 PM

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.
Aug 20 - 9:44 PM

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.
Aug 20 - 6:10 PM

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.
Aug 15 - 11:52 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.
Aug 14 - 11:23 PM

Joey Gallo went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

The bottom five batters in the Rangers lineup on Saturday went just 1-for-15, with Gallo taking up four hit-less at-bats among them. He has now struck out 143 times in 326 at-bats, which works out to a strikeout in just shy of 44% of his at-bats on the year. When he does connect, though, look out. Gallo has socked 32 homers and driven in 61 runs this season and boasts a .552 slugging percentage. Also a .206 batting average.
Aug 13 - 6:19 PM

Joey Gallo belted a two-run homer and drew three walks Wednesday against the Mets.

Sticking to his three true outcome form, Gallo struck out in his other plate appearance. The Rangers' slugger has been on some kind of power binge lately, swatting 11 home runs over his last 18 games to get up to 32 on the year. He stands a very good chance at becoming the first Ranger since Josh Hamilton in 2012 to reach the 40-homer plateau.
Aug 9 - 3:28 PM

Joey Gallo homered and doubled and knocked in two runs versus the Mets in Tuesday's loss.

Gallo has 31 homers, two triples, 13 doubles and 20 singles in 314 at-bats. The .210 average comes with an .880 OPS, and he's been the Rangers' second-best position player behind Elvis Andrus. It might be time for the team to give him a look in Nomar Mazara's third spot in the lineup.
