Bannister: Rangers' Joey Gallo batting second 'a real possibility'

Texas Rangers manager Jeff Bannister said batting first/third baseman Joey Gallo second is "a real possibility" for this upcoming season.

What It Means:

In the first game of Saturday's doubleheader, the Rangers will give the new lineup a shot. The idea is to bat Delino DeShields leadoff, and if he's able to steal second creating an advantage for Gallo to hit without the shift. He would be followed by Elvis Andrus hitting third and Adrian Beltre in the four-spot.

Gallo didn't hit second a single time in his 532 plate appearances a year ago. We project him for 31 home runs, 77 RBI and a .222 average for the 2018 campaign.
