“It was a great experience,” Gallo said, per The Dallas Morning News. “I faced some really good pitchers. That was one big benefit for me. I had some success and a lot of failure. It was important to see what the level of competition up here is like.”
Gallo showed flashes of promise in his first taste of the big leagues. The 21-year-old had five home runs and 13 RBI in 25 games. But he also posted a meager .218 batting average and struck out nearly 44 percent of his at-bats.
“I’ve got to find a two-strike approach,” Gallo said. “When I got there [to two strikes], I got a little excited. I wanted to do damage every time. I’ve just got to put the ball in play.”
Despite his .199 season batting average, Valbuena has been rolling at the plate recently, batting .320 with two home runs over his last seven games. He has reached base safely via a hit, walk or hit-by-pitch in each of his last nine games.
On the flip side, Gallo struck out in each of his other four plate appearances on Monday, giving him a whopping 43 punchouts over his first 25 big-league games.
Gallo has certainly shown the power potential, as evidenced by his nine extra base hits so far. But his .218 batting average and .306 on-base percentage certainly leaves a lot to be desired from the 22-year-old.
Plouffe is up to 18 doubles, including eight in his last 16 games. He is batting .263 (15 for 57) with one home run, eight RBI, 10 runs, five walks, five strikeouts and one stolen base in his last 15 games.
The two-hit effort brings his current hitting streak up to 11 games. The streak has lifted his season batting average up from .289 to it's current .307 mark.
Beltre, who was sidelined for a little more than three weeks due to a sprained left thumb, is batting just .167 (4 for 24) in six games since returning to the lineup. He has no extra-base hits, two RBI, one run and six strikeouts.
