I will caution all of you, yes he strikes out a lot, but oh boy does this make the Yankees better. Gallo can play CF, LF, 1B, and can hit BOMBS. He is replacing Brett Gardner essentially (or at least he should). Don’t focus on his .223 batting average, he gets on base at a .379 clip and his wRC+ is 140 (40% better than league average). Gallo becomes the best offensive threat the Yankees have, next to Judge. Cashman has more work to do, but this is a good start.
The Texas Rangers will receive RHP Glenn Otto, 2B Ezequiel Duran, SS Josh Smith and 2B/OF Trevor Hauver as part of the package from the New York Yankees in the Joey Gallo trade, sources tell ESPN.
Rangers are getting massive haul of prospects in this deal. Others involved, too.
