Watch as Joey Gallo speaks to media following 8-0 Rangers win and 2 homer game.

“Just hoping for the best for him. Obviously we’re not sure how bad it is, or how long it’s gonna be. We obviously care about him a lot, and he’s had some bad luck and it’s tough to see. We’re praying for the best for Willie for sure.”

“This game shouldn’t be always based on numbers”, Gallo said on his improvements after mediocre 2019 and 2020 seasons.

“For me it’s just getting on base. It’s easy to do it for half a season, or one year, or your first year up. But to consistently do it after teams make changes to you, focus on you to get you out. That’s something I’m proud of and I wasn’t able to do in 2019…”
