  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Sitting versus southpaw

    Gallo is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's game in Atlanta.

    Gallo had started 10 straight games since returning from the injured list, but he will begin Tuesday's game on the bench as Atlanta goes with Max Fried as its starting pitcher. Joey Meneses will cover first base.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Getting regular work at first base

    Gallo will start at first base and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Twins, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Since being activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Gallo has now drawn six consecutive starts, with all coming at first base. While Joey Meneses has moved to designated hitter to accommodate Gallo, the Nationals might not have regular room in the lineup for Gallo once Lane Thomas (knee) returns from the injured list, perhaps as soon as this weekend. Gallo has gone 3-for-17 with nine strikeouts through his first five starts since coming off the IL, and he's produced a career-worst .579 OPS this season while striking out at a 47.3 percent clip.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Activated from IL

    Gallo (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday.

    As expected, Gallo will return to the big-league roster after being placed on the 10-day IL on April 27 with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder. In a corresponding move, Trey Lipscomb was optioned to Triple-A Rochester. Before the injury, Gallo was seeing most of his work in right field, and he should continue to play in right since Lane Thomas (knee) is still sidelined.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: On track to return this weekend

    Gallo (shoulder) is on track to be activated from the injured list for the weekend series in Philadelphia, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gallo will play first base on back-to-back days with Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday and Wednesday and that's expected to be the final hurdle he needs to clear on his rehab assignment. While the Nationals are expected to have Gallo available later this week, it's uncertain how much he will play once activated.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Moves rehab to Triple-A

    Gallo (shoulder) went 0-for-4 with a walk, a run and an RBI on Tuesday in a rehab game for Triple-A Syracuse.

    Gallo went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and three walks between a pair of rehab games for Single-A Fredericksburg over the weekend and received the green light to move his assignment to a higher-level affiliate. He served as Syracuse's designated hitter Tuesday but could see action at first base and in the corner outfield for the remainder of his rehab assignment. Gallo may have to settle for a part-time role once the Nationals bring him back from the 10-day injured list.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Cleared for rehab assignment

    Gallo (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Fredericksburg on Saturday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    It's a relatively quick turnaround for Gallo, who went on the injured list less than a week ago with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder. Because he's missed so little time, Gallo shouldn't need too many rehab games before being activated.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Placed on injured list

    The Nationals placed Gallo on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gallo is slashing .122/.286/.311 across 91 plate appearances so far this season, but his shoulder injury will cause him to miss at least the next 10 days. Alex Call was recalled from Triple-A Rochester to replace Gallo as outfield depth.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Shifting to right field

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Wednesday that Gallo will play right field while Lane Thomas (knee) is sidelined, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Washington will let Gallo get his feet wet in right field right away, as he'll occupy the position and bat fifth Wednesday against the Dodgers after having previously not made a start in the outfield all season while instead playing first base or serving as a designated hitter. Gallo has won multiple Gold Gloves for his defensive work in the outfield, so he's a sensible solution in right field. Trey Lipscomb is slated to see ample action at first base during Thomas' upcoming absence, while Joey Meneses will also be an option there.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Not in Friday's lineup

    Gallo is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Astros.

    Gallo started the previous 14 games and will take a seat after he posted a .170/.328/.447 slash line with three homers and a 43.1 percent strikeout rate during that stretch. Joey Meneses will start at first base versus Houston righty Justin Verlander.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: In lineup Wednesday

    Gallo (wrist) will start at first base and bat cleanup in Wednesday's game in San Francisco, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gallo was hit on the left wrist by a pitch in Tuesday's game, but X-rays came back negative and he's back in the lineup a day later. The 30-year-old is slashing .167/.302/.417 in his first 10 games with the Nationals.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: X-rays on left wrist negative

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said after Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Giants that X-rays on Gallo's left wrist returned negative after the 30-year-old was hit by a pitch in his final plate appearance, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gallo went 0-for-3 to drop his season-long batting average to .167 before he reached base in the eighth inning, when he was struck by a Taylor Rogers pitch. He was able to run the bases after being hit by the pitch, so his postgame X-rays may have just been administered out of an abundance of caution. Before an off day Thursday, the Nationals will face the Giants on Wednesday in an afternoon game, so Martinez could look to give Gallo the day off just to allow any lingering soreness in the slugger's wrist to subside.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Nabs steal in Sunday's win

    Gallo went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Phillies.

    The 30-year-old swiped his first bag of the season, but there likely won't be too many to follow -- his career high is only seven, set back in 2017. It's been a fairly typical start to 2024 for Gallo, who's batting .179 (5-for-28) through eight games with a 6:11 BB:K, but four of his five hits have gone for extra bases including two homers.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Logs first hits of 2024

    Gallo went 3-for-4 with a solo home run during Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Pirates.

    After going 0-for-12 in the Nationals' first series of the season, Gallo put on some fireworks Wednesday, busting out of the slump with his first round-tripper of the campaign. It was just his second game with at least three hits in the last 366 days (108 games), dating back to his third appearance of the 2023 campaign. Although Gallo will rack up more than his fair share of strikeouts, he still has light-tower power against right-handed pitching.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Sitting versus southpaw

    Gallo is absent from the lineup for Monday's contest against the Pirates, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Gallo started each of the Nationals' first three contests against a right-hander, but he went 0-for-12 with six strikeouts and will now take a seat versus lefty Marco Gonzales on Monday. Joey Meneses will handle first base in Gallo's stead.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Will be primary first baseman

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Thursday that Gallo will be the team's primary first baseman this season, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    When Gallo was signed in January, the plan was for him to be the club's regular left fielder. However, the Nats have since signed Jesse Winker and Eddie Rosario and Gallo has also dealt with a quad issue. Martinez didn't rule out the possibility of Gallo eventually playing some outfield, but for now he'll be the first baseman while mixing in some starts at designated hitter. The news means Joey Meneses will be the everyday DH, while Rosario looks like the favorite for left field duties.
