In 70 games, Gallo hit .253/.389/.598 (145 OPS+) with 15 doubles, 22 homers, 49 RBI, 54 runs and four steals.

He was good for 3.1 WAR in less than a half season.

The 6-foot-5 Gallo was handling himself fine in center field.

He’s never going to hit for a high average or be a contact hitter, but what we saw last year was the foundation of an annual All-Star.
