Gallo is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Angels. The Rangers are refusing to rush Gallo, one of their most prized prospects, into the lineup despite recalling him Monday. He'll be available off the bench Tuesday while Jared Hoying gets the start in left field for the Rangers.
Gallo was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Monday. Gallo was recalled to replace OF Drew Stubbs, who was placed on the 15-day DL with a toe sprain Monday. The 22-year-old prospect appeared in the majors briefly in 2015 and showed flashes of his power potential with six home runs in 36 games but returned to the minors after he accumulated a .204 batting average. The six-foot-five lefty now has another shot to display his skills at the major league level but will likely return to Round Rock once Stubbs returns from the DL.
Gallo (groin) was activated off the 7-day disabled list Thursday and went 0-for-3 in his first game back at Triple-A Round Rock, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Thursday marked Gallo's first game sine the end of April as he worked his way back from a groin strain. He was able to report to the Rangers' extended spring training facility over the weekend before returning to game action Thursday. Although an 0-for-3 outing in his first game back was slightly disappointing, the silver lining is that Gallo has recovered from his groin strain and he's ready to play.
Gallo (groin) will report to the Rangers' extended spring training facility Saturday and he hopes to come off the 7-day disabled list next weekend, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The highly-touted prospect was given an initial timetable of roughly 3-4 weeks when his MRI on May 5 revealed a Grade 1 groin strain. However, it looks as though Gallo could get back on the field on the earlier end of that timetable as he is optimistic about his chances to be activated by next weekend. Gallo is slugging .642 with seven home runs at Triple-A Round Rock this season.
Gallo (groin) will remain sidelined 3-4 weeks after an MRI revealed a Grade 1 strain, Alykhan Ravjiani of MLB.com reports. Gallo originally suffered the injury on April 30 so a return in late May seems likely. Gallo has slugged seven homers in 20 games at Triple-A Round Rock thus far.
