One of my favorite value picks in my OBP/SLG league. He should return 4th round value or better in that type of format. 35+HR all but guaranteed, hoping he hits around .220 with a 14% BB% and creeps toward 190 R+RBI

If he hits .220 he's having a good year.

Might be too early to say this (it isn’t in the Moncada thread) but our boy’s Ks are down so far. 

 

SwStr% is down 7%, O-Swing is down 15%. Overall K% down 12%

 

These kinds of measures stabilize fairly quickly in terms of PA, so very encouraging. Gotta wonder if he’s changed his approach. The HRs are still there, though.

 

If he can hit .230-.240 then you have Khris Davis but about 3-4 rds later

I have every reason to believe that Gallo will revert back to his normal BA, and keep his normal HR rate.  The first week is not a good indicator of the entire season, or even one month. He won't hit over .220 you can take that to the bank.

Up over .280 batting average 8 bombs 20+ RBIs already.... not expecting him to continue this all year but I really think he’s grown as a hitter and is becoming a much more consistent player. Can’t believe there hasn’t been more said about his start, especially for a guy people wrote off as a .200 hitter

If he can hit above 250, going to be a top 40 hitter

He was a top 60 hitter last year hitting .200. If he hit .250 he'd be a top 25-30 bat. For comparison's sake, Rhys Hoskins hit .246 last year with 34 homers and was around the 35th best hitter. Gallo has hit 40 the last two seasons.

I really feel like he's been so under appreciated these past couple of years. In H2H, where counting stats matter so much and BA doesn't have the same effect week-to-week compared to overall, you can pencil him in for almost 2 HR every week. That's comforting.
