Gallo, Martinez earn Minors honors for September

ARLINGTON -- Joey Gallo and Nick Martinez were named the Rangers' Player and Pitcher of the Month for August and September.

Gallo, 19, hit .321 with 12 home runs and 21 RBIs in the final 23 games of the season for Class A Hickory. He returned off the disabled list on Aug. 8 to hit home runs in eight of his final 21 games. The third baseman fell one homer shy of tying the Rangers farm record of 41, set by Tom Robson in 1974 with Triple-A Spokane.

Martinez, 23, went 3-0 with a 0.95 ERA over his final six games (five starts) with High A Myrtle Beach and Double-A Frisco. He struck out 29 batters against eight walks in that span. Martinez was promoted to Frisco on Aug. 6. The right-hander went 12-7 with a 2.50 ERA in 27 games (25 starts) this season.
