Joey Gallo hit an impressive home run for the Round Rock Express last night, and you can see video here

Video:  Joey Gallo home run.  Texas Rangers prospect Joey Gallo was 2 for 3 with a walk last night for the Round Rock Express, and one of those two hits with a moonshot of a home run which gave the Express their only runs in a 3-0 win.

Gallo had been struggling of late, but he's had a couple of solid games in a row, and is now hitting .253/.392/.559 on the year, with 85 Ks in 283 plate appearances.  His K rate since his return to AAA from his brief stint on the major league bench is 34.3%, which is too high, and I suspect the Rangers want to see him get the strikeouts back under control, or at least closer to where they were in April, before he's going to be a strong consideration to come up to the majors again.
