Texas Rangers: Offseason issues: Why Rangers face tough decision in what to do with Joey Gallo | SportsDay

This is a tough choice on Gallo. He did appear to slide this season. It’s first base, though. Can’t the Rangers pull a Red Sox move from 2003? Acquire a couple of 1B AAA talents to compete with Gallo for the job?

This may be the most difficult decision because I’m not sure Gallo can demonstrate enough progress, regardless of his results in Venezuela, to earn the job. I’m also not sure if his value is high enough to allow him to front a deal for a middle-of-the-rotation (or better) pitcher, which would be the only reason to give up on him. The Rangers have long valued his talent and they now have a position waiting for him. Going with Gallo at first seems to be cost-efficient in terms of dollars and talent, but they better have a Plan B in case he continues to average a strikeout every 1.9 at-bats.
