Joey Gallo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Royals.
Gallo's solo homer off Scott Alexander in the sixth inning was his sixth of the season and bumped his RBI total to 14. He has now whacked four homers in his last five games. That tremendous power upside comes with a .213 average and a propensity to strike out, but if Gallo can figure out how to put the bat on the ball more consistently, look out. Apr 23 - 6:39 PM

Joey Gallo clubbed a pair of long home runs and knocked in three runs in a win over the Royals on Friday.

It was his first career multi-homer game. Gallo broke a tie with a two-run rocket off Nathan Karns in the second inning. The ball traveled an estimated 462 feet to right field and actually hit a popcorn stand on the concourse in right field. All patrons must stay alert when he’s at the plate. His second homer, a solo shot in the fifth inning off Karns, was a moonshot to the second deck in right-center field. The 23-year-old is still striking out in bunches — he has 23 strikeouts in just 56 at-bats — but he leads the Rangers with five home runs.

Joey Gallo went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Thursday's extra-innings win over the Royals.

Gallo hit a one-out double off of Travis Wood in the 13th inning, and he raced home to score the winning run on Delino DeShields' walk-off single a batter later. He also struck out twice in the game -- he's now struck out 22 times in 53 at-bats -- and is hitting just .189/.295/.453 after Thursday's 1-for-5 night. He hits balls hard when he makes contact, but it's the contact that has eluded the 23-year-old for much of his major league career to this point.

Joey Gallo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Gallo burned Jesse Hahn for a solo home run to lead off the fifth inning. That would be the only run the Rangers scored in the 9-1 defeat. Six of Gallo's nine hits to date have gone for extra bases (two doubles, one triple, three home runs), but the all-or-nothing slugger is hitting just .188 in 48 at-bats.
Apr 19 - 6:53 PM

Joey Gallo went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and five total RBI in Sunday's 8-1 win over the A's.

Gallo uncoiled for a three-run home run against Sean Manaea with two outs in the second inning. The dinger was his second of the young season. He later came through again with a two-run single in the sixth. The 23-year-old third baseman possess plus-power, but has yet to progress to the point where he should be considered a must-own for mixed leaguers. Those in deeper formats would not be out of line to take a flier on him for the short term, though, as he should continue to see at-bats until Adrian Beltre (calf) is ready to return.
Apr 9 - 6:49 PM

Joey Gallo connected for a two-run homer in the second inning in Tuesday's game against the Indians.

Gallo's towering big fly landed high in the upper deck at the Ballpark in Arlington, as Carlos Carrasco left one up in the zone and the third baseman crushed it. He is expected to see plenty of at-bats while he mans the hot corner in the absence of Adrian Beltre (calf). The veteran Beltre isn't expected to be sidelined long, however, so Gallo's fantasy ceiling is rather limited.
Apr 5 - 12:08 AM

Joey Gallo will begin the season as the Rangers' starting third baseman.

Gallo has dabbled in the big leagues before but this is the first time he's been on the Rangers' Opening Day roster. Obviously the 23-year-old boasts incredible power (152 homers over 485 minor league appearances) but his poor contact rate has kept him from reaching his full potential. Fantasy owners shouldn't go crazy here as Gallo (calf) is only holding down the fort until Adrian Beltre is ready to resume his role as the everyday third baseman.
Apr 1 - 5:14 PM

Joey Gallo went 2-for-4 with a homer in the Rangers' 4-3 win over the Rockies on Tuesday in Cactus League play.

Gallo contributed an RBI double to the Rangers' three-run fifth inning and then cranked a solo shot in the seventh. The big slugger is still trying to carve out a real role at the major league level and will likely open the 2017 regular season back at Triple-A Round Rock.
Mar 28 - 6:07 PM

Joey Gallo (hamstring) is back in Tuesday's Cactus League lineup.

Gallo has been dealing with soreness in his left hamstring in recent days, but he's ready to get back into game action out of the DH spot. The young slugger is expected to begin the year in the minors.
Mar 28 - 11:07 AM

Joey Gallo (hamstring) will go through hitting and defensive drills Sunday and is working on ramping up his conditioning.

Gallo tweaked his left hamstring a week ago and also had issues with the same hamstring during winter ball. It seems doubtful he'll be game-ready in a week, but he's slated to begin the season in the minors, anyway.

Joey Gallo (hamstring) will do baseball activities Wednesday.

Gallo has been dealing with soreness in left hamstring, but the Rangers don't sound overly concerned. The young slugger is slated to begin the year in the minors.
Mar 22 - 11:31 AM

Joey Gallo is dealing with soreness in his left hamstring.

Gallo strained the same hamstring during winter ball. The feeling right now is that it's not serious, but more will be known after he's examined by the Rangers' team doctor. Gallo is slated to begin the season in the minors.
Mar 21 - 4:29 PM

Joey Gallo went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League tie with the Reds.

Gallo rocked a two-run home run off Bronson Arroyo with two outs in the first inning. The dinger was his third this spring. The slugging prospect struggled in 25 major league at-bats last season, striking out in a whopping 19 of them. He will most likely start the 2017 campaign at Triple-A, but has the potential to serve as an impact fantasy bat later in the season, assuming he makes the proper adjustments.
Mar 18 - 6:57 PM

Joey Gallo clubbed his second home run of the spring season on Friday as the Rangers fell to the Dodgers in Cactus League action.

Gallo tagged Josh Ravin for the two-run blast in the seventh inning, accounting for all of the Rangers' offense in the ballgame. He struck out in his other two plate appearances however and is now hitting .130 on the spring season.
Mar 11 - 12:22 AM

Joey Gallo socked a solo homer and drew a walk on Friday against the Mariners.

The home run will grab most of the attention, but his at-bat in the walk was also impressive. Gallo came into the day 1-for-11 with seven strikeouts and three walks this spring. With Mike Napoli in the fold, the young slugger figures to begin the season back in Triple-A barring something unexpected.
