Rangers star Joey Gallo leaves game, could be placed on IL

Texas Rangers power hitter Joey Gallo is in the midst of a career season. He entered Saturday’s game against the Kansas City Royals hitting .272 with 16 homers, 39 RBI and a robust .415 OBP.

Unfortunately, it looks like Gallo could be sidelined for some time. He exited Saturday’s game after just one at-bat with an apparent oblique injury.

This is not great news for a surprising Rangers team that currently sits over .500 at 28-27 on the season.

Gallo, 25, leads the team in homers, RBI, on-base percentage and OPS. There will be further updates as the day progresses.
