Joey Gallo went 1-for-4 and smacked a solo home run against the Orioles on Wednesday.

He went yard off starter Kevin Gausman in the fifth inning. It was his 22nd tater of the season. The 23-year-old slugger doesn't make much contact and owns a paltry .191 batting average, although he does walk a lot and has a not-so-terrible .311 on-base percentage. He's scored 49 times, driven in 42 runs and swiped five bags.

Joey Gallo (hamstring) drew three walks in his return to the starting lineup Sunday against the Angels.

Gallo appeared as a defensive replacement on Friday, but this was his first time back in the starting lineup since leaving Wednesday's game due to hamstring tightness. He should be fine for the start of the second half. The young slugger will go into the All-Star break with 21 home runs and 41 RBI to go along with a .194/.313/.508 batting line.

Joey Gallo left Wednesday's game against the Red Sox in the fifth inning due to left hamstring soreness.

Gallo dealt with a sore right hamstring in June. Now, it is the left hammy which is bothering him. He will be reevaluated on Thursday. The All-Star break cannot come soon enough for some teams and players.

Joey Gallo said Saturday that he has declined an invitation to participate in the Home Run Derby during the All-Star Game festivities.

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

It would have been a nice matchup against White Sox' southpaw Derek Holland, but alas the hulking third baseman is on the pine. Jonathan Lucroy is serving as the team's designated hitter while Adrian Beltre mans the hot corner.

Joey Gallo finished 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Yankees.

Gallo had a big day at the plate on Wednesday, but he’s 0-for-8 with six strikeouts since. The 23-year-old slugger is hitting just .155 (9-for-58) with three home runs and 24 strikeouts this month. He still leads the Rangers with 19 home runs, but his batting average is down to .194 on the year.
Jun 24 - 1:37 AM

Joey Gallo went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored in a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Gallo is known for his prodigious power but his home run today was actually of the inside-the-park variety. He hit the ball the opposite way and the left fielder crashed into the wall trying to catch it. Gallo circled the bases and glided home without a throw before the shortstop could run out and retrieve the ball. He also doubled twice in the ballgame. The multi-hit night enabled him to boost his batting average above the Mendoza line. He is batting .201/.298/.522 with 19 home runs and 39 RBI on the season.

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

Gallo will do that from time to time. He is hitting .194/.291/.502 with 18 homers and 38 RBI on the season, but while the production remains on the power front overall, he has largely struggled this month.
Jun 18 - 7:04 PM

Joey Gallo went 0-for-4 on Tuesday to drop his average back under the Mendoza Line.

Gallo is 5-for-32 with one homer in nine games this month, and the Rangers have hit him eighth the last two days. He still has an .808 OPS and there's no reason for the Rangers to bench him right now, but his margin for error is quite a bit smaller with Adrian Beltre back.
Jun 14 - 12:36 AM

Joey Gallo went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Gallo inched the Rangers to within 7-2 with his RBI single off Brad Peacock in the sixth inning. The young slugger is batting .204/.308/.519 with 16 homers and 34 RBI across 55 games played this season.
