Yankees shopping for outfielder to replace Joey Gallo, MLB insider says | 3 possible targets

It could be time for Joey Gallo to go.

With the postseason aspirations the New York Yankees have, they simply cannot have any useless pounds. And Gallo, who is stuck in a -26 slump, is just that.

To make matters even worse for the Yankees outfield, Aaron Hicks has been shaky, recording only 1 hit in his previous 17 at bats.

New York Post’s Jon Heymen reviews that the Yankees are starting to glimpse all around for an outfielder.

In accordance to him, there are a few sturdy targets that could give some help:

In an excessive sellers’ industry, the Royals’ Andrew Benintendi, the Orioles’ Anthony Santander and the Cubs’ Ian Happ could healthy very best, with the additional reward that all are left-handed or change hitters. Benintendi will be a absolutely free agent immediately after this year even though Santander (absolutely free agent immediately after 2024) and Happ (cost-free agent soon after 2023) won’t be and as a result uncertain to be dealt.

So what to do with Gallo? In the wake of Bryce Harper’s thumb personal injury, the Philadelphia Phillies could use an outfielder.

MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki shown Gallo as a doable trade target for the Phillies:

“Gallo, who hits still left-handed, is possessing a very poor calendar year with the Yankees … but he could reward from a adjust of landscapes. He has tons of raw electric power and has gained a few Gold Gloves in the outfield. He will be a no cost agent just after the period.”

WIP’s Joe Giglio also thinks a Phillies trade for Gallo is a chance:

“How about an selection that fits the ‘buy reduced, provide high’ mantra? There’s no participant with a track file reduced than Gallo … proper now. His in good shape in New York has been a catastrophe, and will probable before long stick to the Javier Vazquez/Sonny Grey Convey (gifted gamers that failed miserably with the Yankees, but located good results yet again when leaving) out of New York. If the Yankees are searching to dump Gallo for just about anything they can get just before the trade deadline, the Phillies would be intelligent to seem into it. Gallo’s light-weight-tower electricity is true, and he comes with the skill to enjoy heart discipline. Worst situation, it is a flier on a male that is about to be a absolutely free agent. Best circumstance? Gallo turns his job again around, and the Phillies can add big electric power to both of those switch and pair with Harper as the season progresses.”

Gallo went -for-2 with a strikeout and a stroll in Thursday’s 2-1 reduction to the Houston Astros. He’s hitting .165 this period with 85 strikeouts in 63 online games.
