  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: Slugs fourth homer Friday

    Gallo went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in a 10-4 victory against the White Sox on Friday.

    Gallo was one of four Yankees to go deep in the contest, and his fifth-inning solo shot was his fourth of the campaign. The veteran slugger has struggled with a .202/.302/.357 slash line on the season, but he has reached base in five straight games and has gone 5-for-15 with three walks over that stretch.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: Day off Tuesday

    Gallo is not in the lineup Tuesday against Toronto.

    Gallo has had something close to a platoon role this season, as his off day here against Yusei Kikuchi means he's now been on the bench against six of the nine lefties the Yankees have faced this season. He doesn't have a significant platoon split for his career, posting a lifetime 115 wRC+ against righties compared to a 109 wRC+ against lefties, but he hasn't earned everyday at-bats this season, as he's hit just .183/.284/.324. Aaron Hicks will shift to left field Tuesday as Aaron Judge starts in center.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: Sits for second game of twin bill

    Gallo is out of the lineup for the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Rangers.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: Launches homer in loss

    Gallo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Gallo launched a solo homer off Yusei Kikuchi in the top of the third inning, accounting for all the offense for the Yankees in the contest. The long ball was his third of the season, all of which have come over his last six games around missed time due to a minor groin injury. Gallo started the season 4-for-33 from the plate with no extra-base hits, but he has registered eight hits over his last 10 contests, including four extra-base knocks. The hot stretch has raised his batting average from .121 to a still uninspiring .188.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: Makes return to lineup

    Gallo (groin) will start in left field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game in Toronto, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    Gallo is back in action after he was idle for each of the Yankees' last three games with left groin tightness. The Yankees will hope the time off due to injury allowed Gallo to get a mental reset at the plate; he enters Wednesday's series finale with a career-worst .570 OPS over his 69 plate appearances this season.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: Takes seat Sunday

    Gallo (groin) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

    According to Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record, manager Aaron Boone said that the Yankees are viewing Gallo as day-to-day with left groin tightness after the 28-year-old exited early in Saturday's 3-0 win on account of the injury. The Yankees will wait and see how Gallo responds to treatment before deciding on his availability for Monday's series opener in Toronto.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: Not concerned about injury

    Gallo, according to Erik Boland of Newsday, said following Saturday's victory over the Royals that he is "not concerned at all" about the groin injury that forced his early exit from the game.

    Gallo left Saturday's game in the fifth inning with left groin tightness, but he was optimistic when asked about the injury after the contest and even thinks he could play Sunday. Gallo's status will be updated again when it is revealed whether or not he will be in the lineup for Sunday's early afternoon affair.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: Homers in win

    Gallo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 5-2 win Wednesday over Baltimore.

    After striking out in his first three plate appearances, Gallo took Felix Bautista deep to lead off the seventh inning. The left fielder recorded a hit in just four of his first 14 games but has doubled that total with a modest four-game hitting streak, smacking home runs on consecutive nights. While his batting average and slugging percentage are trending in the right direction of late, he's still striking out in 41.3 percent of his plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: First homer

    Gallo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 12-8 win Tuesday over the Orioles.

    Gallo homered off Jordan Lyles in the fourth inning, his first of the season. It has not been the start that Gallo had hoped for as he looks to enter free agency after the season. The slugger has only eight hits (two for extra-bases) and two RBI in 17 games and has struck out in 39.0 percent of his plate appearances. Perhaps Tuesday's homer will get him back on track and the power and on-base skills will begin to show up in his stat line.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: Sitting against lefty again

    Gallo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

    Gallo will retreat to the bench for the second time in three games after he donned the Golden Sombrero in Tuesday's 4-2 win, going hitless with four strikeouts in four at-bats. The 28-year-old slugger is sitting on a .121/.256/.121 slash line and 38.5 percent strikeout rate for the season and could continue to sit out regularly against left-handed pitching while he remains in the midst of an extended cold streak.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: Gets first day off

    Gallo is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game agains the Blue Jays.

    The Yankees are giving Anthony Rizzo a day out of the field and using him at designated hitter while moving Giancarlo Stanton to the outfield, leaving no spot in the lineup for Gallo. He'll be sitting for the first time in 2022 after going 3-for-13 with four walks and no other counting stats through the Yankees' first four games.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: On base three times Monday

    Gallo went 2-for-3 with a walk in Monday's 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays.

    The Yankees managed only four hits all night, and Gallo's second-inning single the other way against the shift was the only one they scrounged up through six innings against Alek Manoah. Gallo is 3-for-13 to begin the season but is still looking for his first extra-base hit, while his 4:5 BB:K through four games is par for the course for the 28-year-old slugger.

  • Yankees' Joey Gallo: Agrees to deal with Yanks

    Gallo signed a one-year, $10.275 million contract with the Yankees on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    Gallo is in his final year of arbitration eligibility and will become a free agent at the end of the season. The 28-year-old posted a .808 OPS with 38 homers in 153 games between the Yankees and Rangers last season, though his numbers after being traded to New York were down a bit as he slashed .160/.303/.404 with 13 home runs in 58 contests.
