Three True Outcomes Newsbeat

Thursday, October 12, 2017

Texas Rangers Slugger Joey Gallo Becomes the Ninth Player Since 2015 to Finish a Season with 40 or More Home Runs and Fewer Than 100 RBI

Dunn and Gallo can both be described as “Three True Outcomes” hitters who are most likely to end a plate appearance with either a walk, home run, or strikeout.  However, Gallo may be taking the “Three True Outcomes” hitting style to a new level as he walked 75 times while recording just 94 hits—less than half his 196 punchouts.  Moreover, Gallo’s 94 hits was a new low for a slugger who hit 40 or more home runs.  Not surprisingly, the slugger who held this dubious distinction before Gallo was Dunn with 110 hits in 2012.  Set to turn 24 and having just completed his first full season in 2017, Gallo could have several 40 home run/sub-100 RBI campaigns in his future.

Another unique aspect of Gallo’s 2017 campaign is that the youngster joined Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire as just the third slugger to hit more home runs than singles while still amassing enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title.  Interestingly enough, Bonds and McGwire accomplished this odd feat during years in which they broke the single-season home run record.
