Everybody loves Hanser Alberto.
From the minute he joined the LA Dodgers this season, teammates and fans fell in love with the Dominican infielder. From his joyful mentality and loose, energetic personality, what’s there not to like about him?
In a recent video, the 29-year-old posted on his Instagram story, he continues to annoy and bug former Texas Rangers teammate Joey Gallo, who also just recently joined the LA franchise.
Everyone has taken a liking to the the relationship he has with each of his teammates and also his ability to keep everything fun and relaxed heading into game days.
Just a few days ago, Justin Turner even commented on the energy Alberto brings to the clubhouse:
“Obviously I love all our guys and everyone is great, but his guy just brings a little bit different edge to the table, and he’s probably one of the least talked about guys that we got this year. Hanser Alberto. High energy, funny, always in a great mood. Like personality, everything, how he goes about it, he reminds me of Juan Uribe. I think we’re going to have a lot of fun playing on the same team this year. Keep an eye out for Alberto. He’s been an absolute gem of a human.”
The relationship between Gallo and Alberto is worth watching as it traces back to 2015.
The two of them made their major league debut together in 2015 with the Texas Rangers where they were teammates for three years after. In 2019, Alberto joined the Orioles and Gallo stayed in Texas until the end of the 2020 season.
After four years apart, the duo was finally back together in LA and have been inseparable ever since.
When Gallo was signed to the Dodgers this past month after the trade deadline, fans were not ecstatic about the outfielder, however, Alberto had confidence in his former and new teammate. But after going 2-for-5 on on Sunday, including a triple and his first LA outfield assist, the lefty slugger owns a 1.038 OPS in 30 at-bats for the Dodgers.
Clearly, something is working with Alberto in the dugout because since he signed a one-year, $1.6 million dollar deal and club option for ’23, the Dodgers have been on an absolute tear and having fun while doing it.
