Texas Rangers top prospect Joey Gallo was optioned back to the MLB Odds on Tuesday in order to make room on the roster for Josh Hamilton. Gallo hit .218 with five home runs and struck out 43 times during his stint with the Rangers. The powerful left-handed bat got off to a sizzling start with Texas and looked to have immediately fulfilled the hopes of Rangers fans and staff. But, just like with every prospect, there is always a learning curve. Joey Gallo hit a rough patch in his last few weeks in the big leagues. His last eight starts consisted of a .182 batting average, with no home runs, and 20 strikeouts in 38 at-bats. He struggled particularly against lefties, having endured more strikeouts when facing southpaws than he did in 20 more at-bats against right-handers. These apparent and sudden struggles may seem alarming, but maybe it’s best for both Gallo and the Rangers that the up-and-comer showed some vulnerability.
