21. Joey Gallo

Los Angeles Dodgers

Joey Gallo Career

  • 2× All-Star (2019, 2021), 2× Gold Glove Award (2020, 2021)

Joey Gallo is a talented and charismatic young outfielder who led the Texas Rangers to their first World Series title in 26 years. He was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the first round of the 2012 MLB Draft, but he opted to sign with the Rangers instead.

In his five seasons with Texas, Gallo tallied an impressive .282 batting average with 201 home runs and 721 RBIs. He has also been very durable, playing in at least 140 games each season since 2015. 

However, as good as Gallo has been throughout his career, there are some question marks surrounding him heading into 2019 due to off-the-field issues that include multiple arrests for marijuana possession and driving under the influence (DUI).

Gallo is a power hitter for the Texas Rangers who has had some success in the past. He hit over .200 last season and is looking to continue that trend this year with the Yankees. Gallo has been named an All-Star twice, but his favorite award might be Gold Glove as he's won it two times already. 

Gallo played for Team USA at the World Baseball Classic in 2019 and was successful there, helping lead them to a fourth place finish overall. After three seasons with Texas, Gallo will move on to play for the Yankees next year where he'll look to add even more hardware to his collection of achievements.
