They want him to stay! Rangers offer contract extension to Joey Gallo

They want him to stay Rangers offer contract extension to

Joey Gallo is one of the most sought after names in the foreign exchange market of MLB at this time, but it is still possible that Texas Rangers get gunboat to stay in Arlington long term for the future. Jim Bowden of The Athletic said on the Starkville podcast that, according to sources, Texas has offered him to Gallo a “ridiculously overrated” contract extension.

It remains to be seen whether the Gallo accepts or not. No matter how big the offer, the outfielder won’t be a free agent until the end of 2022. Bowden notes that Byron Buxton (a player with a bigger health question than Gallo) turned down an extension offered by the Twins, which is reported was about $ 70 or $ 80 million.

Bowden speculates that Gallo will likely be traded if he does not agree to the extension before Friday’s trade deadline. Due to his defensive power and versatility, he is attracting a lot of attention from multiple teams, including the Yankees.

Gallo currently has a .223 batting average with 25 homers and 55 RBIs with a WAR of 4.1.

I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.
