Gallo Wins Carolina League MVP

The accolades keep rolling in for Texas Rangers prospect Joey Gallo, the power-hitting prodigy who has taken professional baseball by storm by slugging 41 home runs over two separate leagues this year.

The 20-year-old MLB Futures Game hero was named the Carolina League MVP despite having not played for HIgh-A Myrtle Beach since early June, when he was promoted to Double-A Frisco and has proceeded to be close to the Texas League lead in homers.

In 58 games with the Pelicans, Gallo hit 21 homers and had a .735 slugging percentage with a .323 batting average and a 1.199 OPS.
