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

Freddy Galvis suffered a fractured clavicle during Sunday's game at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Galvis sustained the injury sliding into a wall while trying to catch a foul ball. It's unclear at the moment how much time he'll miss.
May 11 - 10:23 PM

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.
May 8 - 10:28 PM

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.
Apr 10 - 5:11 PM

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.
Apr 8 - 7:23 PM

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

Galvis is dealing with MRSA in his leg, but it's not a situation where he's expected to miss a great deal of time. The infielder could rejoin the team sometime during its upcoming 10-day homestand.
Apr 2 - 7:01 PM

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.
Mar 27 - 7:47 PM

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.
Mar 25 - 2:31 PM

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.

Freddy Galvis will be sidelined until Friday after having an abscess removed from his left knee removed.

Galvis has been a favorite of manager Ryne Sandberg this spring. He's still unlikely to unseat Jimmy Rollins as the starting shortstop, but the 24-year-old has a spot on the Phillies' bench locked up.
Mar 19 - 8:44 PM

Freddy Galvis homered off the Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka in Thursday's loss.

Galvis got all of a 3-1 fastball from Tanaka, pulling it well over the fence in right field for his first homer of the spring. The utilityman is 3-for-17 overall.
Mar 6 - 5:48 PM

Freddy Galvis was lifted from Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays with a leg injury.

Galvis appeared to be favoring his ankle as he ran the bases and was quickly pulled. If it's just a tweak or a sprain, he should be fine for the start of the regular season. Galvis is expected to make the Phillies' Opening Day roster as a utility infielder.
