  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Swinging, fielding grounders

    Gallo (hamstring) participated in batting practice Tuesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Manager Dave Martinez noted that Gallo has also resumed fielding groundballs within the past week, though the 30-year-old still has yet to run the bases since beginning a running program June 24. Gallo will almost certainly need to embark on a rehab assignment before he can return to the Nationals, but he seems to still have some hurdles to clear before he can begin playing in minor-league games.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Begins running program

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Monday that Gallo (hamstring) has started a light running program, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gallo suffered a significant hamstring strain June 11 and has been on the 10-day injured list ever since. The running program is the first substantial step in his recovery and he'll likely have to ramp up his workload over a series of days prior to being considered for a rehab assignment.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: MRI reveals significant strain

    Manager Dave Martinez said Friday that Gallo's MRI revealed a "significant hamstring strain," Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

    Martinez didn't give a return timeline for Gallo, simply saying that the 30-year-old will be out for "a while." Joey Meneses has been acting as Washington's primary first baseman since Gallo landed on the injured list Wednesday, but it's possible the Nationals decide to add someone from their farm system or outside the organization to help split the workload.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Placed on IL with hamstring strain

    The Nationals placed Gallo on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left hamstring strain.

    Gallo exited Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Tigers due to the injury. The Nationals haven't revealed the grade of Gallo's hamstring strain, but the injury is clearly significant enough that he won't be available for at least the next 10 days. Trey Lipscomb was called up from Triple-A Rochester to replace Gallo on the 26-man active roster and will be an option at first base along with Joey Meneses.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Managing hamstring injury

    Manager Dave Martinez said that Gallo pulled his left hamstring during Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Tigers, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. Gallo went 1-for-3 with a run scored prior to his departure from the game.

    Gallo was grabbing at his hamstring after grounding out in the seventh inning, and he was immediately replaced at first base by Joey Meneses. Martinez said the Nationals will know more about the severity of Gallo's injury Wednesday, but the team will likely bring a minor-leaguer onto its taxi squad in case he needs to go on the injured list.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Out of lineup against lefty

    Gallo is absent from the lineup for Friday's game against Atlanta.

    Gallo started against a lefty earlier this week, but he will begin Friday's game on the bench as Atlanta turns to southpaw Chris Sale as its starting pitcher. Joey Meneses will start at first base for the Nationals.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Launches fifth homer

    Gallo went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Monday's 8-7 loss to the Mets.

    Gallo launched his fifth home run of the season, but he has seen his playing time decrease over the past week. The 30-year-old has started just four of the past seven contests following a streak of 10-consecutive starts. Gallo will need to clean up his dismal .156 average and 45 percent strikeout rate to garner consistent playing time moving forward.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Sitting down Saturday

    Gallo isn't in the Nationals' lineup for Saturday's game agianst Cleveland.

    Following an 0-for-3 performance in the first game of the series Friday, Gallo will take a seat Saturday despite the Guardians sending right-hander Ben Lively to the mound. Joey Meneses will take on first base duties instead and bat fifth.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Sitting versus southpaw

    Gallo is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's game in Atlanta.

    Gallo had started 10 straight games since returning from the injured list, but he will begin Tuesday's game on the bench as Atlanta goes with Max Fried as its starting pitcher. Joey Meneses will cover first base.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Getting regular work at first base

    Gallo will start at first base and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Twins, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Since being activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Gallo has now drawn six consecutive starts, with all coming at first base. While Joey Meneses has moved to designated hitter to accommodate Gallo, the Nationals might not have regular room in the lineup for Gallo once Lane Thomas (knee) returns from the injured list, perhaps as soon as this weekend. Gallo has gone 3-for-17 with nine strikeouts through his first five starts since coming off the IL, and he's produced a career-worst .579 OPS this season while striking out at a 47.3 percent clip.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Activated from IL

    Gallo (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday.

    As expected, Gallo will return to the big-league roster after being placed on the 10-day IL on April 27 with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder. In a corresponding move, Trey Lipscomb was optioned to Triple-A Rochester. Before the injury, Gallo was seeing most of his work in right field, and he should continue to play in right since Lane Thomas (knee) is still sidelined.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: On track to return this weekend

    Gallo (shoulder) is on track to be activated from the injured list for the weekend series in Philadelphia, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gallo will play first base on back-to-back days with Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday and Wednesday and that's expected to be the final hurdle he needs to clear on his rehab assignment. While the Nationals are expected to have Gallo available later this week, it's uncertain how much he will play once activated.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Moves rehab to Triple-A

    Gallo (shoulder) went 0-for-4 with a walk, a run and an RBI on Tuesday in a rehab game for Triple-A Syracuse.

    Gallo went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and three walks between a pair of rehab games for Single-A Fredericksburg over the weekend and received the green light to move his assignment to a higher-level affiliate. He served as Syracuse's designated hitter Tuesday but could see action at first base and in the corner outfield for the remainder of his rehab assignment. Gallo may have to settle for a part-time role once the Nationals bring him back from the 10-day injured list.

  • Nationals' Joey Gallo: Cleared for rehab assignment

    Gallo (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Fredericksburg on Saturday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    It's a relatively quick turnaround for Gallo, who went on the injured list less than a week ago with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder. Because he's missed so little time, Gallo shouldn't need too many rehab games before being activated.
