Joey Gallo News
New York Yankees outfielder Joey Gallo (arm) is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's matchup against the Toronto Blue Jays. Gallo injured his right forearm Wednesday night after getting hit by a pitch, and will get the day off. However, he's feeling better and is day-to-day, according to Marly Rivera of ESPN. Gallo's having a bounceback year in 149 games this season, slashing .199/.352/.463 with 38 home runs, 76 RBI, and 88 runs. It'll be Giancarlo Stanton shifting to the outfield in his place, while Kyle Higashioka will start behind the plate for the designated hitter Gary Sanchez. Higashioka is a defense-first catcher, batting .188 with a .658 OPS. He does have 10 HRs in 65 games, but fantasy managers can probably find better on the waiver wire.
New York Yankees outfielder Joey Gallo (arm) will get X-rays after being hit by a pitch on his right forearm, according to manager Aaron Boone. Gallo was hit by a 94 mph sinker from Blue Jays relief pitcher Tim Mayza during the seventh inning on Wednesday. The slugger remained in the game until his next at-bat during the ninth inning before being pulled for a pinch-hitter. Should the 27-year-old be forced to miss any time, utility man Tyler Wade and infielder Rougned Odor are candidates to replace Gallo in the lineup.
New York Yankees outfielder Joey Gallo swatted a solo homer in Tuesday's win over the Rangers. Gallo got some revenge against his former team, clubbing a ball 395 feet into the seats at 108.6 MPH to give New York a 4-1 lead in the sixth inning. The slugging outfielder has been dealing with a neck issue, though one would never know it by looking at the numbers, as he's been on fire in September. Overall, Gallo is slashing .203/.355/.476 with 38 homers, 76 RBI, 85 runs scored, and six stolen bases. He should be a lock in all fantasy lineups while he's hot, as he has the upside to carry teams.
Texas Rangers slugger Joey Gallo had a down 2020, slashing .181/.301/.378 with 10 HR over 226 PAs. By now, gamers know what to expect from the all-or-nothing slugger. He'll strike out way too often (35 K% last season) while posting one of the lowest BABIPs in the league (.259) due to an extreme pull tendency, dooming his average every year. He also hits a ton of fly balls (55 FB% last year, 50.8% career) with plenty of power behind them, allowing him to make a run at 40 HR annually. Last season's 96.8 mph average airborne exit velocity and 14% rate of Brls/BBE were both strong, but Gallo was considerably better in both 2019 (101.2 mph, 25.6% Brls/BBE) and 2018 (99.9 mph, 22.5% Brls/BBE). Globe Life Field certainly looked like an extreme pitcher's park, but could it have made that much of a difference? The Rangers don't have that many offensive weapons, so Gallo is locked into the cleanup spot even if he continues to struggle. With an ADP of 170.05, betting on a Gallo rebound could be a very profitable investment in fantasy.
