2019 Fantasy Outlook
Gallagher got into 22 games for the Royals last season, finishing with a forgettable .206/.250/.302 line and one home run. He never projected as anything other than a mediocre backup and hasn't done anything to shake that perception. Gallagher has hit for a decent average and shown fine control of the plate at the highest level of the minors, but he has just 32 total homers over eight professional seasons. He lines up as the Royals' No. 2 catcher behind Salvador Perez heading into the 2019 season. Perez has come to the plate at least 499 times in six straight seasons, so there have never been too many at-bats left over for his backup. Gallagher's path to fantasy relevance would require a Perez injury, and even then his bat isn't good enough to have anything more than deep-league value.
