NYY News: The Joey Gallo problem

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports Yankees running out of options with Joey Gallo; Josh Donaldson thinks his slump is almost over; Lucas Luetge’s resurgence boosting bullpen; the chances of besting the 1998 team NJ Advance Media | Brendan Kuty: Joey Gallo’s struggles with the Yankees are simply not getting better. While he was bad after being traded from Texas last year, this season he’s hit a nadir, and he hit .138 with 32 strikeouts over the month of June. That’s just unplayable, but the Yankees don’t really have any good options without a replacement for him....

The Yankees finally found a way to improve their outfield defense

The Yankees finally found a way to improve their outfield defense

Photo by David Berding/ Shifting Aaron Judge to center field when Giancarlo Stanton hit the IL helped the Yankees stumble on their best outfield defense. You’d be forgiven for thinking, back in early April, that the Yankees were going to have an elite defense in the outfield. After all, although Aaron Hicks was no longer an above-average center fielder, he was flanked on one side by two-time Gold Glove recipient Joey Gallo and on the other by annual Gold Glove finalist and 2021 Fielding Bible Award winner Aaron Judge. And then, the season began, and the exact opposite...

Joey Gallo is playing around with a new stance

Joey Gallo is playing around with a new stance

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports The slugger’s new stance is giving him a flatter entry into the hitting zone. 2022 has been a whirlwind of a campaign for Joey Gallo. The last few weeks have been much, much better, but before then, he had been performing as poorly as he had since his abbreviated second season in the league by a considerable margin. Since Gallo’s semi-permanent move back his natural position, right field, he has been visually more comfortable on defense and is without question taking better swings in each and every at-bat. A few weeks ago, as it...

Alternate reality free agency: Seiya Suzuki

Katie Stratman-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees chose not to make a run for Seiya Suzuki, how has this choice turned out? The Yankees made the decision last offseason to not make any notable changes to their outfield after getting Joey Gallo during the 2021 trade deadline. In addition, the Yankees returned their normal starters in Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Aaron Hicks. Judge and Stanton have been their usual selves, making their place in the outfield guaranteed. Hicks and Gallo have played adequate, if not inspiring, baseball. One of the more interesting free...

Joey Gallo’s aggressive approach seems to be working for him

Joey Gallo’s aggressive approach seems to be working for him

Photo by Sarah Stier/ Since late May the Yankees slugger is walking a lot less, but seems to be regaining his power and inflicting more damage at the plate. Joey Gallo is a flawed hitter. He doesn’t have the highest contact rates and he suffers a lot against breaking pitches and changeups. As a result, his strikeout rate will always flirt with the high 30s and low 40s. But the Yankees knew all this when they traded for him last year. Gallo, as it turns out, is also a hard worker. He cares, and he tries to get better. He is committed to succeeding in the Bronx, even if...

Yankees 2, Cubs 1: Another win at the end of an excruciating marathon

Photo by Adam Hunger/ It took longer than anyone wanted it, but the Yankees got another win The last thing the Yankees needed nor wanted was a long game after the final game of the series against the Twins, and in classic cruel baseball fashion, that’s exactly what the Yankees got with this 13-inning marathon. After sitting on the bench for the entire game, All-Star candidate Jose Trevino was the hero once again, scoring Joey Gallo with the winning run. On a night where both teams combined to go hitless with runners in scoring position through their first 36 tries, it...

On Joey Gallo and defensive comfort

On Joey Gallo and defensive comfort

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports Will playing more right field wake up the slugger’s bat? Joey Gallo has been appearing in right field for the Yankees more often lately. Although he moved around the field in the beginning of his career, it was always clear he was best suited for right field. His route running and reads are better there than any other position. His reputation of two gold gloves is legit. This is one of those cases where defensive metrics and the eye test match up well. His Yankee career has mainly been played in left field, though, as Gallo had no...

Colorado Rockies rumors: Should they trade for Joey Gallo?

The New York Yankees are playing great baseball this year as they have a record of 38-15, which is the best record in baseball.

New York Yankees: What to do with Joey Gallo?

The New York Yankees are in a difficult spot when it comes to Joey Gallo. They have to keep putting him in the lineup in the hope that he can overcome the miserable start to his stint in New York.
