Rangers’ Joey Gallo to undergo surgery for broken hamate bone

The Texas Rangers’ offense may be taking a hit over the next few weeks.

Outfielder Joey Gallo is set to undergo surgery for a broken hamate bone, according to The Athletic’s Levi Weaver. Weaver believes the timetable is 3-6 weeks for a recovery.

Gallo was removed from Tuesday’s game and did not play on Wednesday due to the injury. The 25-year-old is batting .253 with 15 doubles and 22 home runs. He’s always had tremendous power, but this is the first year he’s had a respectable batting average, as well as more walks than usual. As a result, his OPS is .987 for the season, and he made the All-Star team. Texas may call up Willie Calhoun in Gallo’s absence.
