2020 Fantasy Outlook
At the time of his placement on the IL with a sore oblique June 2, Gallo was slashing .276/.421/.653. He was activated June 25 but returned to the IL on July 25 after hurting his wrist while swinging. Tests showed Gallo broke his hamate bone, requiring season-ending surgery. Gallo ended the year at .253/.389/.582, setting personal bests across the board. It was only 90 plate appearances, but the lefty slugger was crushing southpaws, slashing .333/.427/.747. The catch is he was fanning at a 38% clip against left-handers, essentially his career pace. The spike was due to an unsustainable .500 BABIP. Still, it's a shame his season ended prematurely. Gallo will be 100% heading into 2020 with a chance to league the league in homers as his exit velocity and barrel rate are off the charts. Just beware his average is likely to drop as his numbers against same-side pitching revert to normal. Read Past Outlooks
