Joey Gallo went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and a walk against the Angels on Friday.

As mediocre as Gallo was in Triple-A, it's hard to see why the Rangers would play him over Will Venable, a superior defensive left fielder. Gallo also struck out all three times up in his first start back in the majors Wednesday. He'll be a bit player in September unless he can get hot in a hurry.

Rangers recalled 3B/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.

Gallo faded after a hot start with the Rangers and then hit just .195 after being demoted to Round Rock. Still, he's obviously very intriguing with his power and could get some starts in left field with Josh Hamilton (knee) limited to pinch-hitting duty at the moment.

Rangers 3B/OF prospect Joey Gallo drove in four runs Sunday in a win for Triple-A Round Rock.

He betled a grand slam as part of a seven-run fourth inning. Gallo also struck out three times. The power-hitting 21-year-old has slugged seven homers over his last nine games, though he's hit just .237 with 18 punch-outs over that span. Including his 25-game stint in the major leagues, Gallo has homered 26 times this year with 149 strikeouts.

Joey Gallo hammered a two-run homer Sunday for Triple-A Round Rock.

The Rangers sent Gallo back to Round Rock in late June to make room for Josh Hamilton. So far he's hit just .186 in 43 at-bats, though his power numbers have been outstanding (three homers, nine RBI). Despite his low contact rate, the 21-year-old offers massive upside and should be an everyday player in the major leagues by next season, if not sooner.

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.

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.
Jun 26 - 4:02 PM

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.

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.
