Joey Gallo will be the Rangers' starting first baseman in 2018

Texas Rangers first/third baseman Joey Gallo will begin the 2018 season as the team's everyday starting first baseman.

What It Means:

Gallo started 52 games at first base but spent the rest of the year split between left field and third. However, with Adrain Beltre healthy and locked into third base, Gallo will get some certainty and start at first in 2018.

Gallo batted just .209 but cranked 41 homers with 80 RBI and 7 steals in 532 plate appearances in 2017.
