The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired struggling slugger Joey Gallo from the New York Yankees on Tuesday in exchange for double-A right-hander Clayton Beater, multiple outlets reported.
The contract is pending review of medical records, according to The Athletic.
Gallo, 28, has been struggling with the Yankees since being acquired from the Texas Rangers at the trade deadline last year.
In 140 games for the Yankees, Gallo has a .159 batting average, .660 OPS, 25 home runs and 46 RBIs. He has hit his 12th home run in 233 plate appearances this season.
Gallo fits the Dodgers’ working-count mold with 40 walks this season after leading the American League with 111 walks last season.
Beater, 23, was a 2020 Dodgers second-round pick by Texas Tech University. He’s appeared in his 18 games with Double-A Tulsa this season with a 5.75 ERA and he’s 0-3 (16 starts). In the minor leagues, he has appeared in 46 games (43 starts) and has a 5.28 ERA and is 0-9.
