Rangers' Joey Gallo: Entering season as starting first baseman
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Jeff Banister said Gallo will be the Rangers' starting first baseman in 2018, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

After spending time at multiple positions in 2017 -- he started 66 games at third base, 52 at first base and 17 in left field -- Gallo will enter the upcoming campaign with a clear-cut role as the team's everyday first baseman. The 24-year-old was a favorite to win the starting job after bashing 41 homers in 145 games last season, though his accompanying .209 batting average and 36.8 percent strikeout rate understandably left the Rangers with some worries. He did walk a decent amount, however, leaving him with a more respectable .333 on-base percentage at the end of the year. The hope is that keeping Gallo at one position in 2018 will allow him to focus more on improving his offensive approach; if he's able to cut down on his strikeout rate, he has the power potential to flirt with a 50-homer campaign.

Rangers' Joey Gallo: Absent from Sunday lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Joey Gallo: Clobbers two more homers in Saturday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.
