Good morning, LSB.
The dust has settled on the Joey Gallo trade and all the outlets have their posts up on the trade itself, the return, the fallout, etc.
First, Evan Grant says that the distance between the Rangers and Gallo in terms of a contract extension made a trade the best long-term move for Texas.
The DMN also has a post up on the Gallo goodbye he put out on Instagram.
Kennedi Landry looks at some more possible moves before the MLB trade deadline, which, as you’ll remember, has been moved up a day.
Yankees writer Lindsey Adler has a nice piece up on what Gallo the Yankee will look like.
Kevin Goldstein weighs in on the trade as well, emphasizing the Rangers depth and saying they got both quantity and quality.
The FWST has a list of Ranger fan reactions to the trade.
And The Athletic has a trade deadline live-tracker post up, ahead of today’s 3 p.m. deadline.
Elsewhere, here’s a housekeeping post on some Rangers injureds/inactives.
And pitching prospect Yerry Rodriguez showed up for the RoughRiders yesterday, striking out 11 in six shutout innings.
That’s all for this morning. The Gallo-less Rangers kick things off again tonight with a series against the Mariners. First pitch 7:05 from the GLF. Happy Friday.
