Gallo is an enigma. There's thunder in his bat, and he can put on a show in batting practice. He became Nevada's state leader in career home runs this season after hitting his 60th, and he crushed the 10th-longest home run in Petco Park history at the Perfect Game All-America Game with wood last summer. But scouts wonder how he'll tap into that power in pro ball. He swings and misses a lot and sometimes looks overmatched against below-average stuff. Gallo has a big league body at 6-foot-5 and 205 pounds. He's not mobile at third base, so while his strong arm plays, his limited range and quickness would work better at first. That would put a lot of pressure on his bat. If he signs instead of heading to Louisiana State, Gallo will likely go out as a position player, but he has a fallback option as a pitcher. He's raw on the mound and has one of the strongest arms of any position player in this year's draft and has been clocked at 98 mph off the mound in short outings. He sits in the 93-95 mph range and mixes in an intriguing slider.
