Joey Gallo Rejoins The Rangers After Positive COVID-19 Test

Texas Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — All-Star slugger Joey Gallo has worked out with the Texas Rangers for the first time during their summer camp. Gallo was cleared and at workouts Friday after missing the first week following positive tests for coronavirus.

The 26-year-old outfielder said he never felt any symptoms but had two positive tests that sandwiched a negative result during intake testing. His return to the field comes two weeks before the scheduled start of the season against Colorado.

He had 22 homers in 70 games and made his first All-Star appearance last year before wrist surgery ended his season.
