Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo will start at first base against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Tuesday, July 26, and is batting sixth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Gallo was hitting .246 with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in the minor leagues and should remain with the Rangers for a while. He needs to be owned in all AL-only leagues and should also be an option for owners looking for more power in deeper fantasy leagues.

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo was recalled from Class AAA Round Rock Tuesday, July 26. There is no word yet on whether he will be a starter in this evening's game.
Fantasy Tip: Gallo may be showcased for trade purposes, or the team may have something else in mind. Whatever the case, Gallo is back in the lineup and may be worth a low-cost DFS flyer if he's in the starting lineup.

Chicago White SP Chris Sale is a serious trade target of the Texas Rangers. However, the White Sox are demanding 3B/OF Joey Gallo and/or 2B Jurickson Profar in any deal.
Fantasy Tip: Profar and Gallo are coveted assets, but Texas is also loaded with plenty of young talent. This could be a fit. The fantasy impact for Sale relocating to Texas would be negligible, but full-time at-bats for Profar and/or Gallo would be a huge fantasy boost.

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar and OF Ryan Rua will see more opportunities at first base with 1B Prince Fielder (neck) on the disabled list. 2B Hanser Alberto will be used as a middle infield backup. 3B/OF Joey Gallo was not called up from the minor leagues.
Fantasy Tip: Between first base and outfield with Shin-Soo Choo (back) also on the DL, Profar will likely be an everyday player for the foreseeable future. Profar's .316/.364/.451 slash line with four homers and 14 RBI in 133 at-bats demand attention in all fantasy leagues now. Gallo remains one of the most intriguing prospects yet to make an impact at the big league level this year. His elite power make him stash-worthy in keeper and AL-only leagues, and he could be a trade chip this summer.

Texas Rangers INF Jurickson Profar and 3B/OF Joey Gallo will require a top-of-the-rotation starter in order to be traded.
Fantasy Tip: Texas has a wealth of resources, and Profar and Gallo could be full-timer players for most clubs in the league, so they're potential trading chips in the right deal. However, the Rangers aren't going to hand either over. It isn't out of the question to speculatively add Gallo now, and Profar should be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues already. Check back for updates leading into the trade deadline.

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo was sent back to the minor leagues Saturday, May 28.
Fantasy Tip: Gallo had only one at-bat with Texas before being sent back down. Unless an injury or another circumstance opens up more playing time at the major league level, Gallo can be ignored in the majority of formats. His elite power combined with improvements in plate discipline could make him an immediate contributor whenever he sees consistent playing time, though.

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo was called up to the team Monday, May 23.
Fantasy Tip: If you have a spot available on your roster, you should probably act quickly to secure Gallo's services. The 22-year-old phenom underwhelmed last year in his first taste of the big leagues, but he's been dominating this season at Class AAA Round Rock, where he's registered a .265/.415/.639 line with eight homers and 20 RBI in just 24 games. With both Shin-Soo Choo and Drew Stubbs landing on the disabled list Monday, there will be openings to get Gallo in the lineup regularly, and don't forget the team can also implement him at both corners of the diamond as well as at designated hitter. He has tremendous upside.

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo (groin) was activated from the disabled list by Class AAA Round Rock Thursday, May 19.
Fantasy Tip: Gallo has tremendous power upside, but he doesn't have any place to play with the Rangers, and he still has some fine-tuning needed in the minors. However, after starting the season with seven home runs and a .254/.400/.642 slash line through just 85 plate appearances with Round Rock, he might be tuned and ready for the majors. He might also only be an injury away from making a jump, too. In deep leagues, Gallo is in the stash conversation.
