Gallo is not in the starting lineup Sunday against Oakland. The slugger isn't reported to be dealing with an injury at this point, so this appears to just be an instance of the Rangers giving him extra rest entering the All-Star break. Gallo has been on a tear at the plate during the past 12 games, slugging 11 home runs while driving in 19 runs across 37 at-bats. David Dahl will start in right field Sunday.
Gallo went 1-for-2 with a home run and three walks Saturday against the Athletics. Gallo took James Kaprielian deep in the first inning, following up Adolis Garcia's long ball with one of his own to give the Rangers a 2-0 lead. It was the team-leading 24th homer of the year for Gallo, who also walked three times to up his American League-leading total to 72 in that category. The 27-year-old is enjoying a terrific season, slashing .239/.402/.522 with 52 RBI while going a perfect 6-for-6 on the basepaths.
Gallo went 2-for-3 with two home runs, an additional RBI and a walk in Wednesday's loss against the Tigers. Gallo was responsible for all the offense the Rangers mustered in this game, as he went deep twice with solo shots off Casey Mize. The star slugger now has 23 homers on the season and has been on an absolute power tear with 10 blasts over his last 10 games, posting an unsustainable 1.303 slugging percentage in that span.
Gallo went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 7-3 loss to the Tigers. Gallo took a couple of days off from knocking a ball out of the park, but he returned to his power surge Monday. He's swatted eight in the last eight games. A newly minted All-Star, Gallo is one of 12 players with at least 20 home runs. He also leads the league in walks with 64 and has a .387 on-base percentage, good for 11th in the circuit.
Gallo went 3-for-3 with a walk, a home run, three RBI and three runs in Thursday's 8-3 win over Oakland. Gallo crushed his 20th homer in the fifth inning off Sean Manaea. At some point, pitchers will start pitching around Gallo, who has homered in five straight games, including multiple bombs in two of them. He's 9-for-16 with seven home runs and 13 RBI during that streak and has hit safely in six consecutive games overall. Gallo's raised his average 22 points, from .217 to .239, over those six games.
