Grant: Why Rangers prospect Joey Gallo struggled in Triple-A after first stint in majors | Dallas Morning News

“Hitters make changes based on what is comfortable or based on not having success,” Banister said. “Young hitters go through the phase where they have measured struggles that they’ve never had before and have the impulse that they have to fix something. Sticking to the process is the most difficult thing for every player to do when they have their first real struggle.

“All the things he went through, all of that has to happen for a young guy,” Banister added. “When they come out the other side and they confront another problem, then they realize they’ve been here before, that they have a tool in their toolbox and reach down and find it.”

Rise to top a family affair for Chicago Cubs’ Kris Bryant, Texas Rangers’ Joey Gallo |

Kris Bryant and Joey Gallo have more in common than their prodigious power.

“The biggest piece of advice, especially as a kid, is just to enjoy it,” Gallo said. “I know it’s cliché, but just to have fun. Growing up—when you start getting that pressure that you’re going to get drafted and colleges—you kind of lose the fun in the game and why you played it in the first place. I’ve gotten it back now and I really enjoy playing it. But in high school, it was tough having scouts at every game. I think that’s one of the main things that I’d even tell young kids that are growing up right now—just have fun. Enjoy it and never take it for granted. I wish I could go back and play with some of my friends from high school again and play with Bryce Harper on the same team. We never really knew how special it was until it was over, until right now.”
