The Texas Rangers have a void at third base with Adrian Beltre on the disabled list.

The Rangers were thinking about asking left fielder/first baseman Joey Gallo to move to third, but he isn't a fan of the idea.

"I don't want. I don't like it," Gallo said. "I hate it, no joke. I hate third base."

Gallo came up as a third baseman, but has been playing left with an occasional stint at first for the past couple of years.

"I'd rather catch," he said. "No joke."

Gallo wouldn't turn down the assignment -- he just doesn't relish the idea of going back to third. "I hate it. It's my least favorite position now. I've played other positions, realized how bad third base can be on my body," he said.

"I'll play there. I have no problem playing there. It's a tough spot to be in. No one has even asked me, but if they did, I'd tell them I'm playing."
