Rangers option Joey Gallo to Triple-A on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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.

Joey Gallo starting in center field for Rangers for Leonys Martin
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Joey Gallo will play a brand new position for the Rangers in Saturday's game. 

Gallo is in the starting lineup, playing center field. He had previously played third base and left field for the Rangers since being called up from Triple-A, but he said he's "never" played center, in the minors or amateur ball, per the Star Telegram.

Leonys Martin, who had started the previous 21 games in center, gets a day off.

Rangers' Joey Gallo out of lineup for third time since promotion
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rangers third baseman/left fielder Joey Gallo was held out of the starting lineup Friday against the Blue Jays for the second time in five games and third time since his promotion from the minors June 2.

Gallo has hit safely in four straight games, but he is batting just .159 (7 for 44) in his last 13 games. He does have three home runs in that span.

Rangers' Joey Gallo: 'I'm not seeing the ball too well'
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

After starting his Major League career with guns ablazing, Rangers rookie Joey Gallo has scuffled at the plate recently. On Thursday, Gallo went 1 for 3 with a double and a run scored. This was just his second extra-base hit over his last seven games. 

"We knew there would be these kind of ripples during every game," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said, per MLB.com. "He's not chasing [pitches]. These guys know who Joey Gallo is. Believe it or not, he's getting pitched like Prince Fielder."

Gallo was called up to make his big-league debut on June 2. And after going 10 for 32 in his first eight games, he is just 7 for 43 in the 13 subsequent games, and he has struck out 36 times overall this season. 

"After the first week or so, pitchers have started making adjustments," Gallo said. "Obviously I have to adjust, too, and keep learning the pitchers. There are guys I have never seen still.

"I just feel like maybe my timing is little off right now. "I'm not seeing the ball too well. But the last few games, I feel like I've had pretty good swings at least, but the results haven't been there."
