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 close to anything golden anytime soon.
His bat is tremendous though, with huge power to all fields, more than any other prospect in the system: in a season split between AAA Round Rock and AA Frisco, Gallo smacked 23 homers in 87 games, slashing .240/.342/.520 along the way. With a long swing and iffy judgement, though (139 strikeouts in those same 87 games), he's got some development to do before he's ready to really join in on the Texas thunder.

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.
