Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports the Rangers are willing to trade Joey Gallo for a long-term starting pitcher.
The Rangers have been talking to the Rays about acquiring one of their starting pitchers and Gallo, who was previously thought to be off limits, could be part of the return package if the two sides strike a deal. Gallo is still a power-hitting behemoth but he hasn't been able to crack the Rangers' lineup with Adrian Beltre occupying third base and Shin-Shoo Choo and Nomar Mazara blocking his path at corner outfield. The 22-year-old has hit .250 this year with 16 HR and 40 RBI in 216 at-bats for Triple-A Round Rock. Jul 18 - 2:44 PM

Rangers OF prospect Joey Gallo matched a career-high with four hits Thursday in Triple-A Round Rock's loss to Memphis.

He homered and drove in three runs as the Express were handed a 13-7 defeat. The 22-year-old has been a steady source of power for Round Rock, collecting 15 HR with 38 RBI this season. Despite missing time with a groin injury, Gallo still ranks sixth in the Pacific Coast League with 40 walks. He's only seen one at-bat in the major leagues this year with Nomar Mazara and Shin-Soo Choo manning the two corner outfield spots in Texas.

Rangers optioned INF/OF Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock.

Gallo was with the club for just a couple of days as an extra bat, and he saw just one at-bat during his stay. He'll head back to Round Rock where he'll undoubtedly crush Triple-A pitching until he is needed once more.

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

Gallo missed three weeks with a strained groin, but he went 5-for-16 with a homer and four RBI in four games since returning to action. Interestingly, he made a start at first base on Sunday, which could be an option with Mitch Moreland and Prince Fielder struggling. He hasn't played the outfield at all this season, but the Rangers figure to give him some looks there with Shin-Soo Choo and Drew Stubbs now both on the disabled list. Assuming the playing time is there, the young slugger is worth a flier in most fantasy formats. Expect plenty of strikeouts, but the power potential is huge.

Joey Gallo was activated from Triple-A Round Rock's disabled list on Thursday.

Gallo missed three weeks with a strained groin. The 22-year-old has always had a low contact rate but his power is off the charts. He got his feet wet with 36 games in Texas last season and should get another shot with the big club later this year.

Joey Gallo (groin) will head to extended spring training in Arizona on Saturday.

Gallo is rehabbing a strained groin that he suffered late last month. He's hoping to be activated next weekend. Gallo is a deeply flawed prospect with huge strikeout totals but his overwhelming power should land him a full-time gig in the major leagues in relatively short order.
May 12 - 7:26 PM

Joey Gallo has been placed on Triple-A Round Rock's disabled list with a strained left groin.

Gallo insists that it's a minor strain and that he expects to be back soon, but even minor groin strains typically take 3-4 weeks. He's hitting .254/.400/.642 with seven homers and 16 RBI for Round Rock this season.
May 1 - 1:29 PM

Rangers 3B/OF prospect Joey Gallo mashed two homers Saturday in a win for Triple-A Round Rock.

He plated four runs as Round Rock rolled to an easy 9-3 victory over Iowa. Saturday was Gallo's first multi-hit game of the season. Gallo has been a legendary power hitter at the minor league level though he continues to struggle with high strikeout totals and a low batting average. The 22-year-old will join Texas at some point this year.

Rangers optioned OF Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock.

Nomar Mazara and Jurickson Profar were also cut from Rangers camp Monday morning. Gallo registered a 1.071 OPS with three home runs and seven RBI in 34 plate appearances this spring in the Cactus League. He figures to play a significant role with the major league team at some point in 2016 and the power stroke should have dynasty owners salivating. Plate discipline remains an issue.
Mar 21 - 12:08 PM

Joey Gallo went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 5-4 Cactus League win over the Indians.

Gallo's sixth hit this spring was also his third home run. He added a single later, adding to his exceptionally good day. Gallo has had issues with making contact in the past, but one thing has always been certain: his power. If he can right some of those plate-discipline issues early this season at Triple-A, we should see him in Arlington, Texas before long. The big bat remains highly attractive.
Mar 15 - 7:28 PM

Joey Gallo went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and two runs scored against the Brewers on Friday.

The three-run homer was a legitimate bomb, as it landed far off into the berm beyond the right field fence. Gallo came into Friday with two hits and six strikeouts through his first 11 at-bats this spring. We know he can hit the ball a long way, but making contact on a regular basis will be the key to him unlocking his long-term potential. He's expected to begin 2016 back in Triple-A.
Mar 11 - 6:14 PM

Joey Gallo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, helping the Rangers outlast the Mariners on Tuesday.

Gallo launched a Tony Zych offering over the fence in right field, bolstering the Rangers' lead to 8-4 in the eighth inning. It's his first homer since being recalled on September 2, and his sixth homer on the year. He's also batting .214/.300/.449 with 14 RBI in 110 plate appearances.

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.
Wed, Sep 2, 2015 09:26:00 AM

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.
