Two-time All-Star quarterback Joey Gallo is joining the Los Angeles Dodgers in a deal that will send Double-A pitcher Clayton Beeter to the New York Yankees, by FanNation’s Pat Ragazzo.
The Yankees are reportedly looking to part ways with Gallo and his $10.275 million salary after he struggled for most of his tenure with the team. This season, Gallo is hitting the 0.159 ball with 106 hits in 233 bats.
Last week, Gallo spoke to reporters and accept the truth that his time with the Yankees was nearing its end.
“I didn’t live up to expectations,” Gallo said on Thursday, via The Athletic. “Every time I see a Yankees hat, every time I see a Yankees jersey, that’s what I have to understand. I didn’t play as well as a Yankee. I wish I had.”
Gallo, 28, began his career with the Texas Rangers and won two All-Stars and two Golden Gloves nods before being traded to the Yankees in 2021. While he hit .211 with Rangers , Gallo averaged .159 out of more than 500 cards appearing as just in front of a pair of pitchers in Yankees history.
Beeter is the Dodgers’ second pick in 2020 and has a 0-3 record in 16 starts with Double-A Tulsa this season with a 5.75 ERA.
