— Player Notes
Advice: Gallo hit a three-run bomb in the first and followed it up two innings later with his first inside-the-park homer. His season-high six RBI helped snap Frisco's 12-game losing streak. Gallo already has 14 multi-homer games in his short career. A prodigious power hitter, Gallo recently expanded his horizons by playing left field. A third baseman by trait, Gallo may make it to the big leagues quicker as a corner outfielder.

Advice: He didnt collect a hit in the game, going 0-for-2 with a pair of walks and a strikeout, but Gallo did collect the first outfield assist of his career, throwing out a runner from the left field wall at second base. The 21-year-old got a late start to 2015 season after undergoing minor surgery on his left ankle, but hes swung the bat well since returning to Frisco, with a .316/.442/.592 batting line, 12 extra-base hits (four home runs) and a 33/18 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 22 games. It will be interesting to see how much playing time Gallo sees in left field moving forward, as the position represents a potentially clearer path to the big leagues for the young slugger.Wed, May 20 Rotoworld
Advice: Gallo is playing left field for Double-A Frisco. It's a notable development, as getting the 21-year-old comfortable at another position could increase his chances at being a fit on the major league roster at some point in 2015. Gallo is off to a fine start this season, batting .324/.440/.608 with four homers and 15 RBI in 21 games for Frisco.
