Gallo posting eye-popping numbers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2012) It's time for Fantasy owners to get to know Rangers prospect Joey Gallo, who has been a sensation since turning pro this summer. The 18-year-old third-base prospect was a supplemental first-round pick (39th overall) in June's draft, and all he has done is rake at the plate since turning pro. Gallo was recently promoted to Class A short-season Spokane after tearing up the Arizona League (rookie). Brace yourself -- Gallo hit .293 with 10 doubles, 18 homers and 43 RBI in 43 games in the AZL. The 18 homers were a record for the AZL. Since being promoted to Spokane, he is batting .313 with two homers and seven RBI in four games. "I've been happy with what I'm showing power-wise," Gallo told MLB.com. "I couldn't imagine how many home runs I would hit in the AZL and stuff. I definitely didn't come in thinking I would've done that. I didn't expect to come out and be a star, I wanted to just have fun and try and enjoy my first year. Let things fall into play, take it day by day."
