How about this line, folks? .323/.463/.735 (that’s a 1.199 OPS), 21 home runs, 50 RBI, 51/64 K/BB ratio in 246 plate appearances. That’s what Joey Gallo has done at Single-A Myrtle Beach thus far. Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the Rangers have promoted Gallo to Double-A Frisco and he could be available as early as tonight.

Gallo, 20, posted a .961 OPS with 40 home runs between rookie ball in the Arizona League and Single-A Hickory last season. Thus it was no surprise when he was rated the #60 overall prospect by Baseball America and #95 by Baseball Prospectus entering the season. Barring a catastrophic collapse over the rest of the season, Gallo’s stock should continue to rise quickly.

    Keep him away from Arlington until Nolan’s Curse is lifted. He’ll tweak a neck, hurt an ankle, “trip over a dog”, injure his shoulder, pull a groin, or need tommy John.

    This kid’s power is a legit 80 on the scouting scale and his arm is awesome, too. Contact issues, but nobody is perfect.
