  • Joey Gallo Making Dodgers Debut Thursday

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Joey Gallo is making his debut with the team on Thursday against San Francisco Giants right-hander Jakob Junis, starting in left field and hitting sixth in the batting order. Gallo was dealt from the New York Yankees to the Dodgers at the trade deadline on Tuesday, but he didn't get the starting nod on Wednesday. The 28-year-old left-handed slugger was a disaster in his second season with the Yanks this year, hitting an embarrassing .159/.282/.339 with 12 home runs, 24 RBI, 32 runs scored and two stolen bases in 82 games. The Dodgers are hoping they can help him turn things around at the plate. Nobody is debating that Gallo still has prodigious power, but he'll need to make more consistent contact in order to be useful in the second half of the season with his new team.

  • Joey Gallo Traded To Dodgers

    According to a tweet from Sports Illustrated's Pat Ragazzo on Tuesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired outfielder Joey Gallo from the New York Yankees for minor league pitcher Clayton Beeter. The outfielder is batting .159 with a .282 on-base percentage, 12 home runs and two stolen bases in 273 plate appearances this season. He'll give the Dodgers another power option in the outfield, but as was the case in New York, he might not see much playing time, especially if he continues to strike out in bunches. Currently, Los Angeles' outfield options on the active roster include Mookie Betts, Cody Bellinger, Trayce Thompson, and James Outman.

  • Joey Gallo Expected To Be Traded

    The New York Yankees are getting interest in outfielder Joey Gallo, according to sources, and it would be something of a surprise if he wasn't traded by Tuesday's 6:00 pm ET deadline. Gallo has really struggled in his second year in the Bronx, so interested teams may be able to land him for pennies on the dollar. The 28-year-old left-handed slugger has cratered to the tune of a .159/.282/.339 slash line, 12 home runs, 24 RBI, 32 runs scored and two stolen bases in 273 plate appearances over 82 games. A change of scenery could get him going again, and it appears that the two-time All-Star will be on the move this summer.

  • Brewers Have Discussed Joey Gallo

    The New York Yankees and Milwaukee Brewers have discussed outfielder Joey Gallo, who may fit Milwaukee much better than New York City. The Brewers were in on outfielder Andrew Benintendi before the Royals dealt him to the Yankees, and they could use another outfielder. USA TODAY's Bob Nightengale mentioned the Minnesota Twins and Tampa Bay Rays as other possibilities to trade for Gallo before Tuesday's deadline. The 28-year-old left-handed slugger has been an absolute failure in his second season in the Bronx, hitting .159/.282/.339 with 12 home runs, 24 RBI, 32 runs scored, two stolen bases and 106 strikeouts in 273 plate appearances, but perhaps a change of scenery would get him going again.

  • Yankees Could Trade Joey Gallo To Small-Market Team

    New York Yankees outfielder Joey Gallo is likely to be on the move within the next few days. The front office is looking to trade Gallo who has heavily struggled this season. At first, the Yankees were talking to teams such as the San Diego Padres and Texas Rangers. Now, they've decided to target smaller market teams such as the Brewers or Rays. It's going to be a tough challenge for the Yankees to move a guy hitting less than .160 on the season. The hope is that Gallo would play better in an environment with less pressure such as Tampa Bay or Milwaukee. That could be true, but first the Yankees need to find a team that actually is willing to take Gallo.

  • Yankees Struggling To Move Joey Gallo

    New York Yankees outfielder Joey Gallo will likely be wearing a new jersey at this time next week -- so long as the team can find a suitor for him. According to Jon Heyman of the New York Post, the Yankees are actively shopping Gallo, but they are having trouble finding a trade partner who will agree to send back the "type of prospect they seek." Heyman stated that both the San Diego Padres and Texas Rangers have expressed interest in Gallo, but both are -- understandably -- much more engaged in Juan Soto trade talks at the moment. It's been a nightmare season for Gallo thus far. Across 80 games, he's slashed just .161/.285/.343 with 12 home runs.
