Joey Gallo sets franchise minor-league strikeout record
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/29/14) Rangers prospect Joey Gallo established a new franchise-record in a minor-league season with his 175th strikeout Thursday, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Gallo broke the previous franchise mark set in 1975, and he did it in his 430th at-bat between Class A Myrtle Beach and Double-A Frisco. He ranks fourth in the minors overall in strikeouts, though he has also hit 41 home runs while hitting .274/.395/.619 overall.

|(8/10/14) Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told MLB Network Radio Sunday that the team will not promote prospect Joey Gallo when rosters expand in September.
Gallo is having a monster year in the minors, batting .289 with 38 home runs and 95 RBI in 110 games between high Class A and Double-A. Gallo also has a .409 on-base percentage, .651 slugging percentage and 1.060 OPS.
Joey Gallo named Futures Game MVP after mammoth blast
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(7/15/14) Rangers third base prospect Joey Gallo took home MVP honors at the 2014 Futures Game Sunday after delivering a towering two-run home run to lead the U.S. team to a 3-2 victory over the World team.
Gallo, who also put on a derby-like spectacle in batting practice, drove a sixth-inning pitch into the second deck in right center field at Target Field, with the home run being calculated at 419 feet. It's par for the course for the exciting prospect, who shares the minor-league lead in home runs with 31 shots while hitting .307/.434/.703 in 290 at-bats between high Class A Myrtle Beach and Double-A Frisco.
Joey Gallo not expected to make MLB debut this season
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/30/14) Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told MLB Network Radio Monday he doesn't expect prospect Joey Gallo to make his MLB debut in 2014. Gallo, who was recently promoted to Double-A Frisco, has homered 29 times in 76 games this season between two levels in the minors.
"I doubt we'll see him this year," Daniels said. "The plan for him is to stay down (in the minors) and finish the season, but he's tremendous."
Joey Gallo promoted to Double-A
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(6/8/14) Rangers infielder Joey Gallo has been promoted to Double-A Sunday.
Gallo has dominated in Class A, hitting .323, with 21 home runs. The 20-year-old was not in the Double-A lineup Sunday, but should see some playing time soon.
|Prospect hounds have a love-hate relationship with Joey Gallo. His power potential makes their imaginations run wild, but if he's struggling to hit .250 and striking out every third at-bat in low Class A, how's he going fare against pitchers with complete secondary arsenals and more sophisticated game plans? Obviously, at age 20, he's capable of improving himself, but his flaws are so fundamental that it's not too hard to imagine him stalling out in the upper levels of the minors and never even sniffing the majors. Because he's held his own so far, what he can do takes precedence over what he can't, so in dynasty leagues, go ahead and imagine him settling somewhere on the Mark Reynolds-to-Giancarlo Stanton spectrum of super sluggers. But understand he's a gamble, even by prospect standards.
