Freddy Galvis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Padres' 7-3 loss to the Angels on Tuesday.
Galvis belted a towering solo home run off Angels starter Jaime Barria in the fourth inning. He’s now homered in three consecutive games and five of his last nine games, increasing his total to 10 round-trippers on the year. The 28-year-old shortstop is slashing a pedestrian .240/.298/.369 over 485 plate appearances, but he does offer some value as a power and speed combo middle infielder in extremely deep mixed leagues.

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a pair of runs scored in the Padres’ 6-3 extra-innings loss to the Angels on Monday.

Galvis slugged a solo homer off Angels starter Andrew Heaney in the third inning. He’s now homered in consecutive games and three out of his last eight, increasing his total to nine for the year. He also singled and came around to score the tying run in the eighth. The 28-year-old shortstop possesses a modicum of over-the-fence pop and speed on the bases, but he’s mostly been a fantasy afterthought, hitting a meager .240/.298/.363 with 44 runs scored, nine home runs, 49 RBI and six steals in 481 plate appearances this season.

Freddy Galvis clubbed a grand slam off of Jake Arrieta on Sunday, powering the Padres to an 8-3 victory over the Phillies.

Galvis clobbered his four-run blast to center field in the third inning, increasing the Padres' early lead to 5-0. He also singled in the game, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. Aside from victimizing his former club, it hasn't been a great season for Galvis, who is slashing just .237/.296/.355 with eight homers and 48 RBI.

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a run scored in a win over the Cubs on Thursday.

Galvis and company plated six runs on 15 hits in the affair, with his doubles compromising two of the team's four extra-base hits. It's been a rough year offensively for the 28-year-old shortstop, who is hitting just .239/.296/.344 with five homers and four steals after he batted .255/.309/.382 with 12 homers and 14 steals as a member of the Phillies last year. He holds no fantasy value.
Aug 3 - 12:24 AM

Freddy Galvis went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's loss and is hitting .229 with no homers in 70 at-bats this month.

Galvis hasn't put together the kind of walk year he was hoping for; his OPS sits at .625 through 373 at-bats. He came in at .645 in his first year as a regular in 2015 and made slight gains the following two years, coming in at .673 in 2016 and .690 last year. He still has quality defense and durability working for him, but the team that makes a multiyear commitment to him this winter will be settling for mediocrity.
Jul 24 - 9:52 PM

Freddy Galvis had a huge night in Friday’s 9-3 win over the Braves, going 5-for-5 with a homer and four RBI.

The big blow was a three-run homer in the seventh inning, but he added an RBI single in the ninth. He also had a double and two more singles. It was the first five-hit game of his career. The 28-year-old came into Friday’s action with just four hits in 27 at-bats over his last eight games. Even with the big night, Galvis owns an ugly .242/.303/.363 batting line this season.
Jun 15 - 11:59 PM

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI double in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

Galvis came through with an RBI double off Dan Straily in the first inning before mashing a solo home run (again off Straily) to lead off the fourth. Saturday's homer was the shortstop's first since May 26, when he went deep against the Dodgers. His bat has been mostly punch-less for the campaign as a whole, as Galvis is slashing .236/.301/.348 with three homers and 21 RBI in 66 games this year.
Jun 9 - 7:53 PM

Freddy Galvis doubled twice in a win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

Galvis now has seven doubles on the season, and he scored his 18th run of the year as well. He's swung the bat much better as of late, but he's still hitting just .236 on the season with 13 RBI and three homers over his 51 games with San Diego in the 2018 campaign.
May 23 - 7:20 PM

Freddy Galvis went 3-for-4 with a double and a triple in a loss to the Rockies on Monday.

Galvis also scored two runs, and was "only" a homer short of the cycle on Monday. Even with the three hits, Galvis is still having a disappointing season with the bat, as seen in his .237/.303/.309 line over 43 games. Let's just say that it won't be Galvis's bat that keeps prospects like Luis Urias or Fernando Tatis from making a move up to San Diego in 2018.
May 15 - 1:25 AM

Freddy Galvis went 0-for-3 on Friday and is hitting .167 with no extra-base hits over his last 21 games.

Galvis has more strikeouts (34) than total bases (33) to date. For comparison's sake, he had 111 strikeouts and 232 total bases for the Phillies last year. The Padres were expecting more when they traded for him over the winter. They would have been better off just signing a stopgap instead of giving up a quality prospect in Enyel De Los Santos.
May 5 - 12:19 AM

Freddy Galvis launched his first home run of the year Saturday in the Padres’ loss to the Brewers.

Galvis cranked a two-run shot off Brent Suter in the second inning. He grounded out and lined out in his other two at-bats as San Diego dropped its third straight. The 28-year-old is off to a good start with his new team, hitting .417 with three RBI through his first 12 at-bats.
Apr 1 - 12:36 AM

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a loss to the Brewers on Thursday.

Galvis had a pair of singles, with his two-out RBI single in the ninth inning serving to tie the game at 1-1. He was then caught trying to steal second base to end the inning. After a trade from the Phillies to the Padres this winter, Galvis is locked in as the team's everyday shortstop. He hit seventh in the lineup on Thursday.
Mar 30 - 12:11 AM

Freddy Galvis hit his second home run of the spring in Sunday's win over the Dodgers.

The new Padres shortstop hit the solo job off reliever Jordan Jankowski in the eighth inning. He's batting .342 with a .974 OPS this spring after joining the club in a December trade. He'll bat near the bottom of a sneaky-decent Padres lineup, but Galvis doesn't own much fantasy value outside of NL-only leagues.
Mar 18 - 8:10 PM

Freddy Galvis hit his first home run in a San Diego uniform in a loss to the Cubs in the Cactus League on Thursday.

The blast was a solo shot off of Mike Montgomery in the sixth inning. Acquired by the Phillies for Enyel De Los Santos in December, Galvis is much better with the glove than he is with the stick. Having said that, he has hit 32 homers and stolen 31 bases over the past two seasons, so he's not completely bereft of offensive ability. He probably can be avoided in most formats, but a shortstop that gives you 15 homers and 15 steals might make up for the low batting average.
Mar 8 - 6:21 PM

Padres and SS Freddy Galvis avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.825 million contract.

It's a nice salary bump for Galvis, who was in his final year of arbitration eligibility. He was acquired via trade from the Phillies last month.
