Rangers | Joey Gallo sent down

Sat, 28 May 2016 07:51:11 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo was sent back to the minor leagues Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo had only one at-bat with Texas before being sent back down. Unless an injury or another circumstance opens up more playing time at the major league level, Gallo can be ignored in the majority of formats. His elite power combined with improvements in plate discipline could make him an immediate contributor whenever he sees consistent playing time, though.

Rangers | Joey Gallo called up to majors

Mon, 23 May 2016 16:43:04 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo was called up to the team Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: If you have a spot available on your roster, you should probably act quickly to secure Gallo's services. The 22-year-old phenom underwhelmed last year in his first taste of the big leagues, but he's been dominating this season at Class AAA Round Rock, where he's registered a .265/.415/.639 line with eight homers and 20 RBI in just 24 games. With both Shin-Soo Choo and Drew Stubbs landing on the disabled list Monday, there will be openings to get Gallo in the lineup regularly, and don't forget the team can also implement him at both corners of the diamond as well as at designated hitter. He has tremendous upside.

Rangers | Joey Gallo activated at Class AAA

Thu, 19 May 2016 14:28:06 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo (groin) was activated from the disabled list by Class AAA Round Rock Thursday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo has tremendous power upside, but he doesn't have any place to play with the Rangers, and he still has some fine-tuning needed in the minors. However, after starting the season with seven home runs and a .254/.400/.642 slash line through just 85 plate appearances with Round Rock, he might be tuned and ready for the majors. He might also only be an injury away from making a jump, too. In deep leagues, Gallo is in the stash conversation.

Rangers | Joey Gallo closer to returning

Thu, 12 May 2016 17:11:47 -0700

Texas Rangers minor league 3B Joey Gallo (groin) is scheduled to report to extended spring training Saturday, May 14, and could be activated from the disabled list the following weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo was batting .254 with seven home runs and 16 RBI through 20 games this season for Class AAA Round Rock prior to suffering a Grade 1 left groin strain. The 23-year-old slugger possesses a tremendous amount of upside and should remain stashed in AL-only, deep mixed and dynasty leagues.

Rangers | Joey Gallo could miss a month

Tue, 03 May 2016 20:47:31 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo (groin) is expected to miss three to four weeks with a Grade 1 left groin strain. He had the same injury in his other leg in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo has some of the biggest power in the minors and was a popular stash option. It looks like he may not surface in the bigs until closer to the All-Star break. If you need the roster spot in mixed leagues, cut him. He should be held onto in AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Three Rangers sent down

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 09:44:01 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo, OF Nomar Mazara and 2B Jurickson Profar were all optioned to minor league camp Monday, March 21.

Fantasy Tip: All three could have significant roles on the team by season's end. Mazara is a notable prospect that could easily make an impact in left field with Josh Hamilton already hurt and if Ian Desmond doesn't pan out in left. Gallo's power is elite, and he made strides this spring with his plate patience. Profar's shoulder concerns have put him off the fantasy radar the last two years, but he's one to watch if he falls into playing time, too.

Rangers | Joey Gallo turning the corner?

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 16:06:30 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo hit a towering home run in spring action Tuesday, March 15, and he has three home runs in his last four games over 10 at-bats. The homer also came against a left-handed pitcher. He's reached base in 10 of his last 17 plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo's spring bears watching. He's always had immense power, but his inability to make consistent contact was what has been holding him back. An avenue for everyday playing time in Texas remains iffy, but if Gallo continues to make gains with his plate approach, he's certainly worth selecting in the later rounds of deep mixed leagues for his upside.

Rangers | Joey Gallo showing better eye

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 15:44:09 -0800

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo worked a walk in the game Tuesday, March 8, and his grasp of the strike zone seems to be improving. He has a team-leading four walks in 14 spring plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: That's significant because Gallo has some pretty significant pop with the stick. His lack of contact and walks were setting his on-base percentage and average back. Remain patient, but Gallo could become valuable in mixed leagues if he finds an avenue to consistent at-bats in Texas.

Rangers | Joey Gallo to concentrate on 3B

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 19:28:27 -0800

The Texas Rangers want 3B Joey Gallo to concentrate primarily at third base during the spring, even though he can play in the outfield as well as first base.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo is an up-and-comer who showed what he can bring to the table in spurts last season. He has some nice power and will be a fantasy staple before too long.

Rangers | Several options behind Josh Hamilton

Mon, 22 Feb 2016 22:35:42 -0800

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) is seeking a second opinion on his sore left knee. He had surgery last season to clean out the cartilage in his left knee last season and experienced soreness in the winter. If he isn't ready the team has multiple options including OFs Lewis Brinson, Joey Gallo, James Jones, Nomar Mazara, Ryan Rua and Justin Ruggiano.

Fantasy Tip: Itís uncertain how much time, if any, Hamilton will be forced to miss. The remaining outfielders are a hodgepodge and none are worth using outside of a deeper AL-only fantasy league. The team is also looking at a bevy of free-agent outfielders. Stay tuned.
