Joey Gallo named Futures Game MVP after mammoth blast
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rangers third base prospect Joey Gallo took home MVP honors at the 2014 Futures Game Sunday after delivering a towering two-run home run to lead the U.S. team to a 3-2 victory over the World team.

Gallo, who also put on a derby-like spectacle in batting practice, drove a sixth-inning pitch into the second deck in right center field at Target Field, with the home run being calculated at 419 feet. It's par for the course for the exciting prospect, who shares the minor-league lead in home runs with 31 shots while hitting .307/.434/.703 in 290 at-bats between high Class A Myrtle Beach and Double-A Frisco.

Joey Gallo not expected to make MLB debut this season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told MLB Network Radio Monday he doesn't expect prospect Joey Gallo to make his MLB debut in 2014. Gallo, who was recently promoted to Double-A Frisco, has homered 29 times in 76 games this season between two levels in the minors.

"I doubt we'll see him this year," Daniels said. "The plan for him is to stay down (in the minors) and finish the season, but he's tremendous."

Joey Gallo off to monster start at Class A
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rangers prospect Joey Gallo connected for three home runs and totaled six RBI during a 21-6 win for Class A Myrtle Beach Wednesday. Gallo also had three walks and four runs in the win.

All three of Gallo's home runs Wednesday came on offspeed pitches, per MLB.com.

"I've worked on that a lot," he said. "I've been working with my approach at the plate. I think it's been beneficial and is paying off pretty well right now. I'm relaxed up there."

Gallo is off to a great start in the minors. He now has nine home runs and is slugging .891 in 19 games. He is also batting .359 with a .458 on-base percentage, 1.348 OPS, two triples, three doubles, 22 RBI and 21 runs. 

Gallo is even cutting down on his strikeouts and walking more. His walk rate is up to 18.1 percent.

"I'm laying off pitches and deciding which pitch to hit and which not to hit," he said. "That's helped a lot so far. I'm laying off pitches in the dirt, laying off high pitches. Going up there with a plan of what they're going to do to you."
