The elephant in the room in figuring out an answer to Eugene's question is the Rangers new park. 


He had a .333/ .427/.727 slash line vs lefties in 75 AB which could be either a fluke or it could be the hitter version of the Clayton Kershaw Syndrome which is Kershaw doesn't have a large platoon split bc opposing managers only allow the best lefties to hit against him....so Gallo's large platoon split could also be due to only being allowed to face the weaker lefty pitchers.

The shocking thing is his BABIP jump while his K percent climbed even higher.

He was well on his way to earning his career best when he was injured a second time.  In half a season he earned $14 (likely $12) in 5x5.  Can he keep his OBP/Avg up next year? Was this a new lease on life or merely a blip?  I expect him to be a pick next year with bids closer to $25 than his normal $15-20.

Could be back as early as Tuesday.  Was having quite the season before his injury.  Now, he's way behind Mike Trout, but he's still one of the most productive in the AL.

This Eno Sarris post gets a lot right about what we know and don't know about the advanced stats we have. You may have to subscribe to see it, in which case, you should decide about the whole Athletic package. I'm in at $3 a month.

Speed kills. I have 58 hitting points on my team with a $14 pitching staff.  Gallo's steals are not what's giving me 1st in the category, but they sure don't hurt.  He needs to provide more power, though.  I'm in 3rd in HR, giving away my only points on offense. 

Doubling down on his speed, the Rangers sent DeShields down to the minors again.  He doesn't do well in even years. Meanwhile, Gallo is now the primary CF.

HR'd today to become the first player in major league history to hit 100 HRs before he got to 100 singles.

He also stole his 2nd base of the season, which (not being an AL guy) is why his owners drafted him, I can only assume.

Hit .478 this week. Only four of his 11 hits were big flies. His G/L/F this year is 35/28/38. Clearly he needs to work on his launch angle.

I'm embarrassed by my bid. (While I was pleased when he went for $23 in the ADL.) Time to get over my batting average phobia.

Counting righties, Gallo hit six home runs to left and left center, according to Fangraphs. And many, many grounders to short right field. If the spray chart is telling the truth, he made more outs to the infielder playing in the outfield on the right side than the infielder playing in the infield.

Joey Gallo (1B) TEX - Feb. 21

Rangers hitting coach Luis Ortiz asked Gallo to take extra rounds of batting practice Wednesday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Gallo is working on pitch recognition and swing-path changes. The left-handed hitting Gallo hit an opposite-field home run off a left-handed pitcher during the session, a rarity for him. In 2018, the power hitter hit just two homers off lefties that the Statcast system classifies as opposite field. The 25-year-old delivers plenty of power but little else. If he can consistently hit the other way, Gallo could face fewer extreme shifts and potentially improve on his career .203 batting average and .317 on-base percentage.
