Rangers outfielder Joey Gallo will likely be placed on the 10-day injured list due to a hamate bone injury, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. It’s not clear when Gallo suffered his injury, but manager Chris Woodward said he had been dealing with hand soreness over the last week or so. Gallo will see a hand specialist before the Rangers make any official determinations.
Gallo, 25, is in the midst of a career year, so the injury is tremendously bad news. He’s hitting .253/.389/.598 with 22 home runs and 49 RBI in 297 plate appearances.
