Gallo getting on base for Rangers without all of the extras

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Joey Gallo is getting on base a lot for the Texas Rangers without going out of the park. Gallo has only one homer but has reached base in each of his first 15 games this season. His other 10 hits are all singles, and he has an MLB-high 15 walks. He’s seventh in the majors with his .453 on-base percentage. It is a big shift for the 27-year-old slugger. He reached 100 career homers faster than any other American League player, and when he did it in 2019 he had only 93 singles.
