Texas gave up on Joey Gallo?

Schmipf was close to Gallo (well, less successful) last year:
Player   PA   HR    BB    SO   1B
Gallo   532 7.7
Schimpf 197 7.113.735.55.1

He does feel like a Tampa kind of player, doesn't he?

He makes Mark Bellhorn look like Joey Cora.

34 HR in 441 AB in MLB used to make you a franchise player

but .195 AVG and 175 K is an issue, and he turns 30 in April

2B in 2016, 3B in 2017
