MLB Network correspondent and New York Post columnist Jon Heyman reported Thursday that yankees they are “selling” the lanky gardener joey roosteralthough at the moment they have not found any team willing to pay the price they are asking for it.
Rumors suggest that the Padres and Rangers have some interest in Gallo, however, both franchises are more focused on a trade for Juan Soto with the Nationals. Following New York’s thrilling 1-0 victory over Kansas City on Friday at Yankee Stadium, Gallo was sincere and launched a self-criticism after accepting that since he landed in the Bronx he has not lived up to expectations, therefore, he believes that his time in New York has been a failure.
Gallo’s value since he’s been in the pinstripes has waned ever since, as he’s hitting an awful .159/.282/.339 with 12 homers and 24 RBIs.
It is worth mentioning that at the end of the current campaign he will become a free agent, so it is now or never for the Mulos to transfer him to another club, in addition to the fact that he would have little chance of lining up due to the acquisition of Andrew Benintendi, coming from the Royals and who has been added to the roster as a reinforcement.
