A nominal third baseman, Texas prospect Joey Gallo should probably be considered a first base or DH prospect, as his fieldwork isn't anything that will get him any golden hardware. His bat is tremendous though, with huge power to all fields, probably more than any other prospect in the system: that 1.323 OPS in Rookie ball earned him a step up to the A-leagues in 2013, and he should reach AA in 2014. With a long swing and iffy judgement, though, he's got some development to do before he's ready to join in the Texas thunder.

News and Notes

Last year's minor league HR champ is still at it. Rangers prospect Joey Gallo, a three-true-outcomes player if ever there was one, clubbed three homers yesterday helping A-level Myrtle Beach destroy Frederick. Gallo now has nine home runs in only 64 at-bats, well ahead of last year's pace that netted him a total of 40. Gallo remains an all-or-nothing hitting prospect of no small appeal. He should reach AA this season.
