Freddy Galvis hit a two-run home run, the deciding factor in the Phillies' 3-0 win over the Athletics on Saturday.
Galvis went into the at-bat 0-for-2 but contributed in a big way, breaking a seventh-inning scoreless tie with his fourth home run of the season. All four of his home runs have come since rejoining the team on August 23, and three have come in September alone. His numbers, though, are still weighed down heavily by a dreadful first half. Galvis owns a .165/.226/.320 slash line with 10 RBI. Sat, Sep 20, 2014 07:22:00 PM

Freddy Galvis went 3-for-3 with a double, a home run, a stolen base, and three runs scored in Tuesday's victory against the Pirates.

Galvis entered the game with eight total bases in 64 PA. He had seven alone in three plate appearances on Tuesday. Galvis doubled and scored in the second inning and hit a game-tying solo home run to lead off the fifth. In the seventh inning, he reached on an infield single, stole second base, and scored the deciding run on a Maikel Franco single. Galvis will be the Phillies' top option at shortstop while Jimmy Rollins nurses a mild left hamstring strain. He has a .129/.179/.242 slash line in 67 plate appearances.

Phillies recalled infielder Freddy Galvis from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Galvis suffered the misfortune of fracturing his clavicle just three days after being sent down by the Phillies in May, and he missed a couple of months before returning in July. He hit .267/.322/.452 with three homers in 135 at-bats for Lehigh Valley. The Phillies will probably make him their top utilityman over Andres Blanco.

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro said Tuesday that Freddy Galvis (clavicle) is about two weeks away from returning to game action.

Galvis broke his left collarbone back in mid-May but has resume infield drills at the team's spring training complex. He should be an option for the Phillies' bench shortly after the All-Star break.

Freddy Galvis (clavicle) will be out 6-8 weeks.

Galvis suffered a fractured collarbone on Sunday at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The infielder was optioned off the Phillies' active 25-man roster on May 8 after tallying just two hits in 46 major league plate appearances.

Phillies optioned INF/OF Freddy Galvis to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Galvis went 0-for-3 in Thursday's game and has managed just two hits over his first 42 at-bats this season. The Phillies have not announced a corresponding move yet, but Cesar Hernandez, Reid Brignac or Ronny Cedeno would make sense coming up from Triple-A.

Phillies activated INF/OF Freddy Galvis from the 15-day disabled list.

Galvis is all better after being diagnosed with MRSA late in spring training. The 24-year-old switch-hitter will be used in a utility role with the Phillies.

Freddy Galvis (staph infection) could be activated as soon as Friday.

Galvis suffered a staph infection in his leg during the spring and was later diagnosed with MRSA, but he has made it through two minor league rehab games without incident. The 24-year-old switch-hitter will function as a bench player upon his return.

Freddy Galvis (staph infection) began a rehab assignment at High-A Clearwater Tuesday.

Galvis had been playing extended spring training games as he works his way back from MRSA in his leg, a condition that causes infections in different parts of the body. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Galvis is "doing well" and is "on the fast track" to be activated from the DL. He's expected to rejoin the big club before the end of their current 10-game homestand.

Freddy Galvis (staph infection) began baseball activities Monday and is scheduled to begin playing in extended spring training games as soon as Sunday.

Phillies placed INF Freddy Galvis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 21, with a staph infection.

Galvis was recently diagnosed with MRSA, though he thinks he could be ready for game action in as soon as two weeks. If that's the case, a return before the end of April should be doable.

Freddy Galvis (leg) estimated Tuesday that he could be ready for game action in as soon as two weeks.

Galvis has been sidelined due to a staph infection in his leg and was recently hospitalized for four days after being diagnosed with MRSA. However, he was in good spirits in Phillies' camp on Tuesday and might have a chance to come off the disabled list by the end of April if all goes well.

Freddy Galvis will open the season on the disabled list due to a staph infection in his leg.

The infection occurred after Galvis had surgery Wednesday to remove an abscess from his left knee. The infielder remains in the hospital and it's uncertain at this time how long he'll be sidelined. Ronny Cedeno and Reid Brignac now have a shot to make the Phillies' roster as utility men.
