Yankees: A rooster in the Bronx! The mighty Joey Gallo arrives in New York

Yankees A rooster in the Bronx The mighty Joey Gallo

The New York Yankees made the first big stir before the trade deadline of next Friday, July 30, by agreeing a deal with the Texas Rangers by the slugger left handed Joey Gallo. No further details of the pact were released.

Outfielder Gallo, 1.96 meters tall, was eliminated from the lineup for the Texas game against the Arizona D-backs. Neither club has confirmed the move, as it is pending a medical review:

The 27-year-old Gallo is in the middle of his second All-Star season, hitting .223 but with an OBP of .379 and a .490 slugging percentage, plus 74 walks, leading in the majors.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
