Gallo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Angels.
Per StatCast, Gallo's second-inning home run traveled 490 feet, good for the third-longest blast in the majors this season. Several of Gallo's team-best 38 home runs have been of the highlight-reel variety, but they may have skewed the perception of what's otherwise been an uneven fantasy portfolio for the 23-year-old. Though Gallo's home-run production has certainly been useful for his owners, a .211 average and a somewhat underwhelming RBI total (75) have dinged his value relative to some of the game's other top sluggers.
Gallo went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs in Thursday's 10-4 loss to the Mariners.
Gallo's fourth-inning double ended a seven-game stretch where he had failed to record an extra-base hit, which had represented his longest power outage since mid-July. Though Adrian Beltre (hamstring) rejoined the lineup at designated hitter Thursday, it's not expected that he'll be cleared to play third base in the immediate future, so Gallo should still handle regular at-bats at that position, or at first base when Mike Napoli needs a breather.
Gallo (wrist) is starting at third base and batting fifth Tuesday against the Mariners.
Gallo experienced some wrist soreness following a collision during Monday's game, but he was able to finish out the contest and it appears he won't be forced to miss any time due to the ailment. With Adrian Beltre (hamstring) likely out for the remainder of the season, Gallo will serve as the Rangers' primary third baseman down the stretch. He's slashing .231/.375/.615 with 16 homers in 45 games since the All-Star break.
Gallo, who went 0-for-3 with a walk in Monday's 5-3 win over the Mariners, experienced some wrist soreness following a collision with a baserunner during the game, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Gallo wasn't forced to exit the contest and went on to play all nine innings, so it doesn't appear as though he'll be at much risk of missing Tuesday's game. Even so, the minor injury to Gallo along with those suffered by Rougned Odor (ankle), Nomar Mazara (quadriceps) and Carlos Gomez (ankle) in recent days probably factored into the club's decision to promote one of their top prospects from Triple-A Round Rock in Willie Calhoun, who is expected to make his MLB debut. Since only Gomez's injury is considered significant of the aforementioned group, it's expected that Calhoun will serve as Gomez's primary replacement in the outfield, though the 22-year-old's experience at second base could make him a viable replacement if Odor should require a day off at any point.
Gallo went 1-for-7 with a double, three walks and two runs while starting both halves of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Braves.
Gallo has drawn walks in all but two of his nine starts since returning from the 7-day disabled list after a brief bout with a concussion, helping him raise his on-base percentage to .336 for the season. He's also striking out in only 23.8 percent of his plate appearances during that span, a full 12 points below his season-long mark. So long as Gallo can keep that strikeout rate below 30 percent the rest of the way, it may be enough for him not to be a total sinkhole in the batting-average category.
