Struggling Joy Gallo is getting better results

CHICAGO—For Joy Gallo, patience paid off. The Yankees’ left fielder took two outs in the second innings on Sunday and allowed White Sox right-hander Michael Kopech to get himself into trouble. Gallo drew a walk, a first blow in what would become strange, three runs on one hit and four walks inning.

Kopech gives a two-out walk to Gallo and a Kiner-Falefa single. The White Sox right-hander walked Jose Trevino to load the base and then ran Aaron Hicks after a seven-pitch at-bat to bring in the first run. He went on to bring in DJ Lemahieu in second and then Trevino scored on a wild pitch.

Gallo scored two runs in the ninth inning with his fifth home run of the season.

“I feel good. I felt great all year, but now I’m getting some results which is good,” Gallo said. “That (second innings) was a big innings for us and I think what’s important about walking is that they aren’t valuable but they can start something like that.”

“He was two outs and then it gives the next man a chance. And that was the big innings and it looked like the rest of the game was in our hands after that innings,” Gallo said. go for a walk. Sometimes you don’t need to swing.”

Gallo came to New York as a power hitter with an eye for drawing walks. He has been struggling since coming to a deadline deal with Rangers last season. This year, Shakti has only really started to show itself and 15 walks have been overshadowed by 37 strikes.

Through 31 games this season, Gallo is hitting .202/.317/.382 with .699 OPS and seven RBIs. However, Aaron Boone sees Slugger getting closer to where he should be.

“More good in batting today and a big walk in the three-run knock. And clearly an exclamation point at the end gives us a little cushion and some breathing room,” said the Yankees manager. “Yeah, the quality of the at-bat keeps getting better and better which is nice to see.”

Possible surgery?

Ben Rorthwaite, the Yankees catcher who was acquired in the trade of Isiah Kinner-Falefa and Josh Donaldson, may be looking into surgery for a knee injury. The team doctor will examine him this week.

“We should have something, maybe by this week. I know he’s going to see Dr. (Chris) Ahmed to have an idea. It’s something he’s dealt with in the past,” Boone said. Then we’ll see. It could be some sort of surgical procedure that he might have to go through. But we’ll see.”

The young catcher has been sidelined ever since the Yankees got him. He had a skewed tension when it came to business. He began his “spring training” with the Tampa Tarpons when he was discontinued due to a knee injury.

locastro on the track

Boone said Tim Locastro, who suffered a strained lat muscle on a previous road trip, is making steady progress.

He is doing really well, especially considering the injury. I mean it’s one of those things that if he plays through it, it can really hurt him and cost him the rest of the year. So I think right now, hopefully, it’s just a few more weeks,” Boone said. “He was reacting very well when he got hurt. And he has continued to make pretty good progress over the past week. Like their rehab to get back. ,

Locastro was establishing itself as a very good late-inning replacement for running bases. He injured Latt stealing a base in Toronto.

german update

Domingo German, who started the season on the injured list with a right shoulder injury, will face live hitters for the first time this week.

“I don’t know if it’s tomorrow or not. But it’s this week. He’s scheduled for live batting practice,” Boone said. “So he’s doing well and making progress.”

Boone said the Yankees will build the German up to where he can potentially start – 50 to 60 pitches – so he has “that option.”
