Barring a ton of good fortune, drafters should no longer draft Gallo hoping for a spike to even a .230 batting average. With MLB's worst contact rate last season (61.7%), it's no guarantee the career .203 hitter clears the Mendoza Line. He also, however, joined J.D. Martinez and Khris Davis as the only sluggers to belt 40 homers in each of the last two years. It will take a precise roster to tolerate the average liability in applicable leagues, but he's a much better investment in OBP, OPS and/or points leagues.

Joey Gallo set to play outfield regularly in 2019

The Rangers are planning on using their left-handed power hitter Joey Gallo in the outfield exclusively for the 2019 season. The signing of Asdrubal Cabrera to play third base allowed Gallo to make the move to the outfield exclusively.

Fantasy Impact

Still only 25 and coming off of back to back 40-home run seasons, giving Gallo consistent playing time at one position should only help the him become one of most dangerous home run hitters in the game.
