Gallo continues to work hard and make improvements in his game. Behind the plate, he maintains athletic actions and works quickly around pitches in the dirt. He has an advanced blocking technique and centers the ball off of his chest. With the bat, this RHH has an aggressive approach as he connects and drives the ball. He hits the ball where it's pitched and uses the entire field. At 1B, Gallo moves well around the bag and has good bag awareness. He has soft hands and can pick throws out of the dirt. A young 2019 grad - Peter is a skilled player who has a bright future in the game.

Peter proved to be a vocal leader behind the plate. He showed agile footwork, good target, and continued to display down and direct blocking skills. He will need to focus on staying relaxed in his hands when receiving with his weight staying balanced. Offensively, Peter displayed a good approach, direct/level swing path, and good extension. He can work on reaching a consistent load while using more of his lower half in his swing. Overall, Peter showed true leadership qualities behind the plate and should have a bright future as he continues to focus on his fundamentals.

Peter is a 5'6"/120 lbs C/1B that shows consistency in his game. Behind the dish, he has an accurate arm, decent footwork, and an ability to use his body to block. His active feet allow him to get in-line to throw after receiving or blocking. At first, he moves well laterally with the same active footwork, and shows a sure glove. He has a slightly cleaner exchange at first with less hand separation. Offensively, he has a middle approach, is aggressive taking compact hacks making square contact with fluid rhythm. In all, Gallo is a 2019 prospect that should see improvements to his game when he matures and gets physically stronger.
