Rangers' manager Jeff Bannister said Saturday that batting Joey Gallo second in the team's lineup is a "very real possibility".
The Rangers are testing it out on Saturday in the first game of their doubleheader against the Royals. Bannister notes that Delino DeShields hitting out of the leadoff spot is a major factor in this potential plan, noting that if he steals second base the defense will be far less likely to shift on Gallo. The idea seems to be gaining traction and could be how the Rangers line up come Opening Day. Mar 17 - 2:20 PM

Joey Gallo cranked his second home run of the spring Wednesday in the Rangers’ Cactus League loss to the Rockies.

Gallo grounded out, homered and drew a walk before ceding first-base duties to Jurickson Profar in the sixth inning. The home run was a solo shot to right-center off Antonio Senzatela. The prototypical "three true outcomes" player, Gallo offers immense power but little else. Despite the obvious drawbacks of drafting an all-or-nothing power hitter, Gallo makes sense as a mid-round fantasy selection.

Joey Gallo launched a long solo homer against Andrew Miller and the Indians on Friday.

Yeah, he does that. Gallo struck out in 36.8 percent of his plate appearances last season while hitting just .209, but he finished third in the American League with 41 home runs. There aren’t many rivals for his raw power. And he’s in a great setting to unleash it against opposing hurlers.
Mar 2 - 6:38 PM

Rangers manager Jeff Banister confirmed Tuesday that Joey Gallo is locked in as the club's everyday first baseman for 2018.

Gallo started 66 games at third base in 2017 and also spent some time in left field, but the Rangers don't want the 24-year-old slugger to bounce around as much defensively this season. "Right now, and the immediate prospect of what the team is, it's first base," said Banister. "Joey has an athletic body. I think he's athletic enough to go back [to third], but right now we are focused on first base." Obviously some of this hinges on veteran third baseman Adrian Beltre having better luck on the health front. Gallo carries massive fantasy upside into the 2018 campaign after tallying 41 home runs and 80 RBI in 145 games last year.

Joey Gallo finished with a pair of home runs, two walks, three runs scored and three RBI in Saturday's victory against the Athletics.

Gallo belted a two-run shot off of Daniel Gossett in the second inning, and a solo bomb in the third off of Simon Castro. He has 41 homers and 80 RBI heading into the regular season finale on Sunday.

Joey Gallo is getting the night off Tuesday versus the Astros.

Gallo slugged his 39th home run of the season on Monday night, but he'll be on the bench Tuesday with Houston throwing left-hander Dallas Keuchel.

Joey Gallo hit his 39th homer of the year Monday in the Rangers' loss to the Astros.

It was a solo shot off Astros starter Collin McHugh in the bottom of the second inning. Gallo then singled in the bottom of the seventh, finishing the night 2-for-4 with one RBI and one run scored. The 23-year-old slugger is batting .209/.331/.532 over 139 games played in 2017.

Joey Gallo crushed his 38th home run of the season as the Rangers topped the Angels on Sunday in Los Angeles.

His solo shot in the second inning increased the Rangers' early lead to 3-0 and proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Gallo finished the day 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts. He's now hitting .211/.337/.546 with the aforementioned 38 bombs and 75 RBI.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.
