Good morning. Happy Joey Gallo day!

Anthony Andro writes about big stupidly powerful third base prospect hype machine Joey Gallo getting the call for a couple of weeks while Adrian Beltre is on the shelf.

Jeff Wilson notes that Gallo will probably head to Round Rock for his first Triple A ball action when Beltre returns but until then he's all ours.

Evan Grant explains why the Rangers made the move now to call up Gallo and how it has a lot to do with the positive environment in the clubhouse.

Kate Morrison has an assessment on Gallo's ascension to the big club after seeing him play in Frisco over the last calendar year.

MLB.com's prospectophile Jonathan Mayo offers what we can expect from Gallo during his stint in Arlington other than just eyes-rolling-into-the-back-of-our-heads, toe-curling pleasure overload.

Baseball America's Ben Badler also writes about what we can expect from the large slugging prospect.

Big League Stew's Chris Cwik has five things you need to know about Joey Gallo.

Richard Justice writes that though there is reason to be cautious, Gallo has shown an ability to adjust which could make him more ready for this challenge than people assume.

With the calendar flipping over to June, Wilson writes that a 180 from the key members of the Rangers' offense is what fueled the club's 19-win month of May.

Tim Cowlishaw writes that May made Jon Daniels look like a genius after April had people wondering if he'd lost his touch.

Joey Nowak notes that the Royals must be getting the AL Champs bump in the All-Star voting since Prince Fielder is behind Eric Hosmer by a megaton of votes despite Fielder's superb season.

T.R. Sullivan checks in with the story of Shawn Tolleson's rise from waiver pick up to dominating reliever for Texas.

Finally, Giancarlo Stanton, perhaps the man most often mentioned when talking about Joey Gallo's power potential, made the Internet mad yesterday by eating candy wrong.

Have a nice day.
