    Player Outlook

    Joey Gallo had a regular role with the Rangers in 2017, seeing time at both corner-infield spots and getting extra run at third base when Adrian Beltre was on the DL. With a combination of plus-plus raw power, an eye to draw walks, and swing-and-miss tendencies that are currently the most extreme in MLB, Gallo is the ultimate Three True Outcomes player. When he connects, he does a lot of damage, as evidenced by his 41-homer campaign as a 23-year-old last season. It's possible that he'll make adjustments and improve his strikeout rate over time, as he cut his K% from 38.5 in the first half to 34.9 percent in the second half. Moreover, Gallo posted similar numbers against lefties and righties, offering hope that he will avoid falling into the large side of a platoon. Unlike most of the TTO players that have preceded him, Gallo has the athleticism to steal bases (7-for-9) and play ample defense, and if he can continue to whittle away at his strikeout rate, a 50-homer season might be within reach.

    • Rangers' Joey Gallo: Absent from Sunday lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gallo isn't in the lineup Sunday against the Athletics. Despite hitting two home runs Saturday, bringing his total up to 41 for the year, Gallo will head to the bench for the Rangers' season finale. Although he owns an unsightly .209 batting average, Gallo's power proved to be dangerous this season. Gallo logged 94 hits, 41 of them being home runs.

    • Gallo connected for his 40th and 41st home runs of the season in the Rangers' 8-4 victory over the Athletics on Saturday. The young slugger kicked off the scoring in the second inning with a two-run shot off Oakland starter Daniel Gossett, then followed it up with a solo shot in the third off Simon Castro. Despite just a .209 batting average on the season, Gallo now has 80 RBI and 85 runs on the season, helping to cement his role in Texas' offense. Naturally, he'll need to start making more contact if he wants to become a top-tier player in the league, but his power potential and ability to take walks certainly hold some value as long as he can carve out something close to an everyday role in 2017.

    • Rangers' Joey Gallo: Takes seat Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gallo is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Astros, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. It's a well deserved day off for Gallo, as the 23-year-old has started 26 straight games for the Rangers, hitting .222/.340/.422 with four homers and 12 RBI. In his place, Ryan Rua will start at first base and bat ninth.

    • Rangers' Joey Gallo: Connects on home run No. 39
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gallo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run -- his 39th of the season -- in Monday's 11-2 loss to the Astros. The two hits matched Gallo's total from the previous six games combined, reinforcing the batting-average risk he carries for fantasy owners looking to avoid losing points in that category. On the other hand, Gallo is still offering plenty of home-run production amid the parade of strikeouts, so it's up to his owners to look at their place in the standings and decide if the exchange of power for average makes it worthwhile to keep him active in the final week of the season.

    • Gallo went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout in Sunday's 8-1 loss to the Athletics. Gallo's fifth-inning strikeout was his 188th of the season, building on the franchise record he established a night earlier. The young slugger has done a slightly better job of curbing his whiffs since the All-Star break, but he hasn't been seeing the ball particularly well over the last two weeks. He's struck out in 22 of his 44 at-bats over the last 13 games and hasn't made up for it enough in the power department, contributing only one home run and two doubles in that span.
