2019 Fantasy Outlook
The lazy comp would be to call Gallo a modern-day Adam Dunn. However, Dunn was not hitting in the low .200s until the final seasons of his career while it is all Gallo has known in nearly 1,300 plate appearances at the big-league level. Gallo is athletic for his size and is definitely filling the rest of his three-true-outcome shoes. Gallo has hit 40-plus homers and generated at least 165 runs-plus-RBI in consecutive seasons, but he has really hurt in batting-average leagues with a batting average 45 points below the league average. He walks enough (13.4 career BB%) to be more valuable in OBP leagues, although his .317 career OBP is still a below-average mark. We roster him because the power is prodigious and it is 35 homers and 150 runs of production in the bank. There will likely be the occasional year where lucks his way to a .225 average, but bank on something closer to .200 when formulating a plan to offset his one big negative. Read Past Outlooks
