Report: Yankees finalizing deal to acquire Joey Gallo from Texas

According to multiple sources, the Yankees are working to finalize a trade for Rangers outfielder Joey Gallo.

I will caution all of you, yes he strikes out a lot, but oh boy does this make the Yankees better. Gallo can play CF, LF, 1B, and can hit BOMBS. He is replacing Brett Gardner essentially (or at least he should). Don’t focus on his .223 batting average, he gets on base at a .379 clip and his wRC+ is 140 (40% better than league average). Gallo becomes the best offensive threat the Yankees have, next to Judge. Cashman has more work to do, but this is a good start.

The Yankees are also reportedly getting pitcher Joely Rodriguez along with Gallo.
