Focus Area
Hitting Ability:Galloway is a solid contact hitter who can drive the ball to all fields.
Power:He has plus power to the pull side and has the potential to hit 20-plus homers annually.
Running Speed:He's a plus runner now, though he may settle in as a tick above average as he matures.
Base running:He's not a pure basestealer, but he could be a 15-20 steals per year kind of runner.
Arm Strength:He has a plus arm that has more than enough carry to work from right field.
Fielding:He's a solid outfielder who is fine in center right now, but profiles more as a corner guy at the next level.
Range:He can go get the ball well, though left field may eventually be his best spot.
Physical Description:Galloway is a tall, athletic type who is already fairly physical.
Medical Update:He had an ankle injury last summer, but is healthy now.
Strengths:His all-around tools. Galloway has all five of them and is already showing some aptitude toward using them in games.
Weaknesses:There isn't much looseness to his body, which could mean he'll lose a step speed-wise as he matures.
Summary:It's a good year for toolsy high school outfielders in California and Galloway is right near the top of that list. He's got more now skills -- and less projection -- than fellow outfielders Aaron Hicks and Anthony Gose. But he can do everything well and should develop into a guy who will hit for average and power as well as steal some bases. The ceiling may not be as through the roof as with the others, but he's the type who could hit 20 homers and steal 20 bases annually in the future.
