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.
