      Rangers OF Joey Gallo destined to stay in minors into September

      Rangers general manager Jon Daniels has declared on MLB Network Radio that premier outfielder prospect Joey Gallo will not be promoted until at least September unless an injury forces the move. Gallo got off to a blistering start in his June stint with Texas, but cooled considerably and was sent back down on a 6-for-39 slide and with a slash line of .218/.306/.448. He fanned 25 times in his last 12 games.

      Rangers' Joey Gallo experiencing mixed results since demotion

      Rangers third baseman/left fielder Joey Gallo has had mixed results since being demoted to Triple-A Round Rock in early July.

He also has three doubles, nine RBI, four runs and six walks. Gallo, who homered in his first two games in the majors, hit .218 with five home runs, 13 RBI and 43 strikeouts in 25 games with the Rangers.

      Rangers option Joey Gallo to Triple-A on Tuesday

      The Rangers announced they have optioned rookie Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday. Gallo's demotion opens a roster spot for Josh Hamilton, who was activated from the disabled list. "It was a great experience," Gallo said, per The Dallas Morning News. "I faced some really good pitchers. That was one big benefit for me. I had some success and a lot of failure. It was important to see what the level of competition up here is like." Gallo showed flashes of promise in his first taste of the big leagues. The 21-year-old had five home runs and 13 RBI in 25 games. But he also posted a meager .218 batting average and struck out nearly 44 percent of his at-bats. "I've got to find a two-strike approach," Gallo said. "When I got there [to two strikes], I got a little excited. I wanted to do damage every time. I've just got to put the ball in play."

      Rangers' Joey Gallo wears golden sombrero on Monday

      Rangers rookie Joey Gallo had a real feast-or-famine type game on Monday in the 8-1 win over the Orioles. Gallo went 1 for 5, but the one hit was a three-run triple, his first career three-bagger. On the flip side, Gallo struck out in each of his other four plate appearances on Monday, giving him a whopping 43 punchouts over his first 25 big-league games. Gallo has certainly shown the power potential, as evidenced by his nine extra base hits so far. But his .218 batting average and .306 on-base percentage certainly leaves a lot to be desired from the 22-year-old.

      Rangers rookie Joey Gallo working on getting out of hitting slump

      After batting .313 in his first eight MLB games, Rangers rookie Joey Gallo headed into Thursday's game against the A's batting .150 (6 for 40) in his last 12 games. "I'm being a little impatient, swinging at too much," he said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "I've got to adjust, too, and keep learning the pitchers. I'm still a little inexperienced in that. "Maybe my timing is off a little. I'm not seeing the ball too well. The last few games I've had pretty good swings, at least. The results just haven't been there. I've just got to keep swinging through it." Rangers manager Jeff Banister is not discouraged by Gallo's recent slump. He understands pitchers are adjusting to the rookie slugger and is actually encouraged since Gallo isn't chasing as many pitches out of the strike zone as he did when he first made it to the majors. "We knew there would be these kind of ripples during every game," Banister said. "He's not chasing. These guys know who Joey Gallo is. Believe it or not, he's getting pitched like Prince Fielder."

      Josh Hamilton's return may send Rangers' Joey Gallo back to minors

      Rangers rookie Joey Gallo changed positions when one veteran returned from the DL. The next one to get healthy may cost him a roster spot. Gallo started in left field after third baseman Adrian Beltre was activated on Tuesday. Josh Hamilton, currently on minor league rehab assignment, could return from the DL as soon as Monday. If that happens, there may not be room in the lineup for Gallo. Gallo is hitting .222 with five home runs and 10 RBI in 18 games. "A young player who needs at-bats," GM Jon Daniels said of Gallo, per "We're not going to keep him here unless he is playing on a regular basis. Right now, he's playing on a regular basis."
