Gallo is a two-way player on the diamond. Some view him as a power-swinging first baseman that projects plus power and a difference-making bat. Others see him as a power-pitching prospect that can be an end of the pen type.
Gallo projects better as a position player with his power bat. Last year he smacked 25 homers and knocked in 76 runs in his junior campaign at Bishop Gorman High. At the upper levels, whether it is pro ball or collegiate, he is going to have to shorten his swing.
This past summer at the Area Code Games he really raised his stock when Plan B,
Pitching, presented itself when he stood on the mound and started tossing darts at 94 mph. He is raw on the mound, but you cannot deny the arm strength.
Gallo, also a bit of a prospect as a right-handed pitcher, is a big, strong left-handed hitter that stands 6-foot-5. He creates leverage and loft and has above-average present game power to support the projections of his raw power grade. He's played some third base but likely ends up at first. At the Area Code Games last August, scouts likened him to Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman in terms of upside potential. He's committed to LSU, but has a great chance to go in the first round if he can clean up his contact rates.
