Source: New York Yankees ship struggling Joey Gallo to Los Angeles Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired outfielder Joey Gallo from the New York Yankees on Tuesday, a source confirmed to ESPN.

The news of the trade was first reported by SI.com, which said the Yankees would be receiving Double-A pitcher Clayton Beeter.

Gallo, a two-time All-Star, including last season when he was acquired by the Yankees in a trade with the Texas Rangers, has struggled badly this season. While he has 12 home runs and 24 RBIs, he has a .159 average and has struck out 106 times in 233 at-bats.

Joey Gallo sums up Yankees fans, feeling ‘like a piece of s**t’ on eve of new start

Q: What’s it been like for you when Yankees fans notice you on the streets? Are they rough on you away from the ballpark, too?

Gallo: I don’t go out in the streets.

Q: That’s sad.

Gallo: Yeah. I really don’t want to show my face too much around here.

Q: Do you spend a lot of time harping over struggling so much? It is as simple as you never got really hot for the Yankees? You always hit home runs in bunches in Texas. We just saw Aaron Judge hit 11 homers in 12 games. You did the same thing last year before the trade. You had other home run binges for Texas, but never got really hot for the Yankees.

Gallo: I never was able to go off like that. It’s just weird. In Texas I was playing every day, so it was a little easier to get on a streak. It’s a little tougher not playing every day trying to get that streak going, as well.

Q: Is there anything that you learned about yourself during your time with the Yankees?

Gallo: I went through a lot of adversity and I really had to question myself a lot. My confidence suffered. I would say I hit rock bottom for the big leagues. So for me, I just was trying to remember to be a good teammate, play the game the right way, play the game hard and not do something stupid that I’d regret. I learned a lot about myself, I guess. Baseball is a tough game. But it definitely made me stronger because not many people have gone through what I’ve gone through.
