Imagine LSU lineup had we landed this guy from last year's recruitingPosted by nicholastiger on 6/14/13 at 1:07 pm
. Joey Gallo, 3b, Rangers Team: low Class A Hickory (South Atlantic) Age: 19 Why He’s Here: .432/.462/1.135 (16-for-37), 14 R, 5 2B, 7 HR, 10 RBIs, 2 BB, 12 SO, 2-for-2 SB
The Scoop: He was helped by a pair of doubleheaders, but the 42 total bases Gallo produced this week dwarfed all other minor league players—it was 16 more than anyone else. The gap from him to No. 2 was the same as the gap from No. 2 to 460th.
Gallo hit seven home runs this week, including five in a two-day, four-game marathon that showcased his ferocious power. Gallo strikes out way too much—his 12 whiffs this week gives him 102 in 241 at-bats—but when you have chance to develop a player with his power, you give him plenty of time to work out the contact issues.
