Texas Gets Overwhelmed With An Offer For Joey Gallo
This is the most surprising rumor of the deadline but it makes sense. Supposedly the Phillies were very interested in the young Rangers slugger. The earliest Gallo can hit the free agent market is 2023 so the price for Joey will be extremely high.
As much as it would be awesome to see the kind of return Gallo could command, nobody will be willing to part with the assets it would take to get Texas to deal. The Rangers still view Gallo as very much a part of their rebuild and the only way they would consider moving him is if they could add a couple of top prospects who can help their starting rotation.
