Prior to Friday night’s Rangers and Tigers game, Joey Gallo was scratched from the lineup. He injured his eye during batting practice after taking a teammate’s glove to the eye.
Joey Gallo was scratched from the Rangers’ Friday night lineup after injuring an eye during pregame batting practice.
Gallo and Delino DeShields were fielding fly balls when DeShields’ glove struck Gallo’s left eye. The contusion was bad enough to cause blurred vision.
Maybe the Rangers should have run Gallo out there anyway. The blurred vision couldn’t hurt his already sub .200 batting average.
