In the end, as is the case with pretty much everything these days with the Texas Rangers, it came down to money.
If the Rangers and agent Scott Boras couldn’t come to an agreement on a contract extension for Joey Gallo before Friday’s trade deadline, the two-time All-Star would be dealt.
He was traded Thursday, officially, though a six-player deal with the New York Yankees came together Wednesday night.
