Player Notes
Joey Gallo hit his first home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Athletics.

Advice: So it begins. Gallo muscled a Sonny Gray pitch to left-center in the fifth inning to get the Rangers on the board. It was his only hit in four at-bats, and he struck out in two of the four at-bats. That's a typical Gallo night, as he'll strike out plenty but he hits it plenty far when he makes contact. The power makes him fantasy relevant, but the propensity to swing and miss makes him a high-risk, high-reward player.

Joey Gallo is starting at first base and batting sixth on Tuesday night against the Athletics.

Advice: Mitch Moreland is at designated hitter and Jurickson Profar is starting at shortstop. Gallo will probably get the majority of his playing time at first base, with Moreland seeing a dip in action. The 22-year-old slugger was sporting a .939 OPS with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in 70 games this season at Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers recalled INF/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.

Advice: Gallo has posted a .949 OPS with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in 70 games this season at the Triple-A level. Plate discipline remains an issue for the 22-year-old, but he has incredible raw power and could take on significant fantasy value if he finds a good offensive groove and regular playing time in Texas. Gallo has appeared in 23 games at first base and 33 games at third base this year with Round Rock. He played a lot of left field last year.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports the Rangers are willing to trade Joey Gallo for a long-term starting pitcher.

Advice: The Rangers have been talking to the Rays about acquiring one of their starting pitchers and Gallo, who was previously thought to be off limits, could be part of the return package if the two sides strike a deal. Gallo is still a power-hitting behemoth but he hasn't been able to crack the Rangers' lineup with Adrian Beltre occupying third base and Shin-Shoo Choo and Nomar Mazara blocking his path at corner outfield. The 22-year-old has hit .250 this year with 16 HR and 40 RBI in 216 at-bats for Triple-A Round Rock.
