Joey Gallo (Baseball America #6 Prospect) Gets the Call

The Texas Rangers are expected to call up Third Base Prospect Joey Gallo today.

The 21 year old Third Baseman has 40+ homers each of the last two seasons with 9 through 34 games at AA this year. He is a strike out machine (478Ks in 330 professional games) however he has been able to cut down that rate as he has developed.

Las Vegas is suddenly a source of big time baseball talent. Gallo was a teammate of Bryce Harper's before either of them were in their teens and Cubs Prospect Kris Bryant also hails from the Nevada gambling mecca.
