Joey Gallo News
The Minnesota Twins agreed to a one-year deal worth $11 million with free-agent outfielder Joey Gallo on Friday, according to sources familiar with the deal. The former two-time All-Star had the worst season of his career in 2022 with the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers in 126 games. The left-handed slugger hit a combined .160/.280/.357 with 19 home runs, 47 RBI, 48 runs scored and three stolen bases. Gallo struck out almost 40 percent of the time and finished with 163 K's in 410 plate appearances. He hit under .200 in 2021 as well, but it came with 38 home runs. With the 29-year-old, he offers prodigious left-handed power, but the Twins and fantasy managers are buying a ton of strikeouts and a crippling batting average.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Joey Gallo (elbow) underwent X-rays after Wednesday's game against the Giants, and the results returned negative. He exited Wednesday's game early after being hit by a pitch in the elbow during the second inning. According to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, Gallo reported some tingling in his fingers because it got the funny bone, but he should be fine. The 28-year-old avoided a significant injury and is considered day-to-day. His next chance to return to the lineup will be Friday against the San Diego Padres. He is slashing .203/.311/.469 with four homers and 13 RBI in 24 games since being acquired by the Dodgers at the trade deadline. Gallo is having a rough season in 2022, slashing .168/.290/.367 with 16 homers, 37 RBI and 42 runs across 348 plate appearances in 107 games.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Joey Gallo (elbow) left the game early on Wednesday against the division-rival San Francisco Giants with a right elbow contusion after he was hit by a pitch in the second inning of play. For now, fantasy managers should consider Gallo to be day-to-day, but the 28-year-old could be ready to go for the series opener on Friday against the San Diego Padres after an off day on Thursday. Gallo came into Wednesday's game with a .203/.311/.469 slash line with four homers and 13 RBI in 24 games for the Dodgers after being dealt from the New York Yankees at the trade deadline. Overall, he's hitting an embarrassing .168 with 16 home runs, 37 RBI, 42 runs scored and two stolen bases in 106 games.
Cal Raleigh will forever be remembered for the HR that finally sent Seattle into the postseason, but his 2022 numbers also delivered plenty of fantasy juice. He hit .211/.284/.489 with 27 HR in just 415 PAs and the pop was legit. His 55.7 FB% was insane, but it works when you have a 19.1% HR/FB backed by 94.8 mph of average airborne exit velocity and a 15.4% rate of Brls/BBE. Raleigh also pulled 31.2% of his flies, making them even more valuable. Unfortunately, the poor batting average was also real. Raleigh struck out 29.4% of the time last season, and his 15.3 SwStr% suggests that he deserved all of those whiffs. Furthermore, the same 55.7 FB% that supports his home runs also gives his .226 BABIP staying power. Maybe the new shift rules will help him boost his average a little, as Raleigh was shifted against at every opportunity last year. Regardless, a catcher with a solid chance of cracking 30+ HR is a good value at his ADP of 154.46 provided you prepare for the batting average hit.
