Padres acquired SS Freddy Galvis from the Phillies for RHP Enyel De Los Santos.

The deal is now official after being reported earlier Friday. Galvis gives the Padres a steady presence at shortstop that they've been lacking and offers them a stopgap at the position until Fernando Tatis Jr. is ready. The 28-year-old batted .255/.309/.382 with 12 homers and 14 steals in 2017.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Padres have an agreement to acquire Freddy Galvis from the Phillies in exchange for pitching prospect Enyel De Los Santos.

Bleacher Report's Scott Miller first reported earlier Friday that talks between the Padres and Phillies were getting serious. Galvis is a plus defender and batted .255/.309/.382 with 12 homers and 14 steals in 2017. He'll be a free agent after the season, giving San Diego a stopgap at shortstop until Fernando Tatis Jr. is ready.

Bleacher Report's Scott Miller reports that the Padres are in "serious" talks with the Phillies to acquire Freddy Galvis.

Miller adds that it's "close enough that a deal could happen today." Galvis has been connected to the Padres this week as they sought to upgrade their shortstop situation. The 28-year-old batted .255/.309/.382 with 12 homers and 14 steals over 162 games in 2017 and offers plus defense. Trading Galvis allows the Phillies to install J.P. Crawford at shortstop.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Phillies' Freddy Galvis is on the Padres' radar for shortstop.

With J.P. Crawford ready to take over, the Phillies are receiving trade offers on both Galvis and Cesar Hernandez. Galvis would be a stopgap addition for San Diego, as he's due to be a free agent after next season. Known for his strong defense at shortstop, the 28-year-old batted .255/.309/.382 with 12 homers and 14 steals over 162 games in 2017.

Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports that the Phillies have received trade offers on infielders Freddy Galvis and Cesar Hernandez.

Salisbury notes that to this point, none of those offers have been to the Phillies' liking. While the club is interested in dealing one of their infielders away to make room for J.P. Crawford, they aren't going to give them away and are content to enter the season with both in tow if they can't find a deal to their liking.

Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia writes that it's "likely" the Phillies shop Freddy Galvis and Cesar Hernandez on the trade market this winter.

Hernandez's name was popular in trade rumors last offseason, but the Phillies obviously wound up hanging on to him and he had another fine season (.294/.373/.421). He could finally wind up being dealt this winter as Philly looks to clear a spot for Scott Kingery. Galvis has hit only .248/.292/.390 over the last two seasons, but he's popped 32 homers and is viewed as a strong defender at shortstop. Dealing him would allow the Phillies to hand shortstop over to J.P. Crawford. Hernandez is under team control through 2020, while Galvis will be a free agent after next season.

Freddy Galvis hit a two-run home run and scored two runs in the Phillies' lopsided win over the Marlins on Thursday.

Galvis popped one of the Phillies' three jacks in a seven-run second inning. It was his 12th homer of the year. An iron man this year, Galvis has played in all 146 of the Phillies' games, batting .256/.308/.391 with 61 RBI, 64 runs scored and 13 steals.

Freddy Galvis is not in the Phillies' lineup Friday.

It's Galvis' first day off of the season, as J.P. Crawford is at shortstop. He could get an additional day or two off, as the Phillies are expected to give Crawford multiple starts at multiple infield positions in the final weeks.

Freddy Galvis will play center field in the second game of Philadelphia's doubleheader with the Braves on Wednesday.

It's the first time Galvis will play any position other than shortstop for the Phillies in 2017. Rosters will expand from 25 to 40 on September 1, and shortstop prospect J.P. Crawford has been killing the ball in the second half at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. It's not a foregone conclusion this is a move to open up a spot for Crawford, but it's pretty close.

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a walk, a run scored, and two steals Friday against the Cubs.

Galvis has swiped three bases over the last two days and is now up to 13 swipes on the year. If you need speed in fantasy leagues, now would be a good time to pick up Galvis. The Phillies will play three games next week against the Braves, who have struggled all year to throw out baserunners.

Freddy Galvis doubled Wednesday in the Phillies’ 3-0 loss to San Diego.

The sixth-inning double was his only hit of the afternoon. It was also one of just three Phillies hits against Clayton Richard, who went the distance for his third career shutout. The 27-year-old has hit safely in five of his last six games, batting .280 (7-for-25) during that span.
