Phillies and SS Freddy Galvis avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2 million contract.
In his first arbitration-eligible season, Galvis earns himself a raise from $513,500 to $2 million. This past season, he hit .263/.302/.343 with seven homers, 50 RBI and 10 steals across 559 at-bats. 2015 was the first season in which he saw more than 205 at-bats. The 26-year-old shortstop could improve on those numbers in 2016, as he should benefit from his newfound starting experience. Jan 13 - 7:15 PM

Freddy Galvis went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Thursday afternoon's win over the Mets.

Galvis couldn't get much cooking from the top of the lineup, but the Phillies were able to eek out a shutout win behind the strong work of starter Jerad Eickhoff. Overall, the shortstop is hitting .265/.303/.347 with seven homers, 48 RBI and nine steals as the 2015 season draws into its final few games.

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-3 with a walk and a two-run single as the Phillies came back to beat the Mets on Wednesday.

Galvis singled and scored in the third inning as the Phillies got on the board. In the sixth, he hit a game-tying, two-run single. He then came around to score on a wild pitch to put the Phillies up 6-5. Galvis is hitting .267/.305/.349 with seven home runs, 48 RBI, and 61 runs scored on the year.

Freddy Galvis went 3-for-5 with a two-run single as the Phillies beat the Marlins on Tuesday.

Galvis made it a 3-0 game when he hit a two-run single to center field in the second inning. He hasn't done a whole lot at the plate this season, batting .264/.301/.351 with seven home runs and 43 RBI. He'll cover shortstop for the Phillies until top prospect J.P. Crawford is ready.

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, but he couldn't stop the Phillies from losing their ninth consecutive game on Wednesday against the Orioles.

The Phillies were down 6-1 in the seventh inning, but Galvis made a game out of it when he swatted a Ubaldo Jimenez offering over the fence in right field for a three-run home run. Galvis had been in a tremendous slump over the previous three weeks, entering play Wednesday with a .236 OPS since May 27. He's batting .264/.308/.318 with two home runs and 16 RBI on the season.

Freddy Galvis enjoyed another three-hit outing Tuesday, finishing 3-for-4 with two runs scored in a loss to the Cardinals.

The loss wasn't any fault of Galvis', as he continues to collect multi-hit games -- Tuesday's effort was his third three-hit game in the past five games. The performance raised his line to .368/.411/.456 with eight RBI and nine runs scored. Galvis has split time between the No. 2 spot and the No. 8 spot, where he hit Tuesday, and Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg may have no choice but to keep Galvis in a run-producing spot near the top of the lineup with how he's hitting of late.

Freddy Galvis went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win versus the Marlins.

Galvis gave the Phillies a 2-0 lead in the second inning with his round-tripper off of Dan Haren. Galvis is now tied with Chase Utley for the team lead in RBI with eight, though given the Phillies' offense, that could be construed as damning with faint praise. He's hitting an impressive .319/.385/.447 but he won't be able to maintain such a high average over the course of the season.

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-5 with two RBI on Saturday against the Nationals.

Galvis had a pair of RBI singles in the victory. The 25-year-old probably wouldn't be hitting second for any other team, but he's made starts from there in seven out of the last eight games. He's hitting .317 (13-for-41) with a .378 on-base percentage so far, so don't look for Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg to change it.

Freddy Galvis had a three-hit game as the Phillies were shutout by the Mets on Monday.

Galvis was hitting eighth for the fourth time today. He's also hit second on three occasions, including a couple of games where Odubel Herrera was nursing an injury last week. Eighth is almost certainly where he belongs, but he'll probably bat second more frequently if he can stay hot for a little bit. He's hitting .400 through his first 25 at-bats.

Freddy Galvis went 3-for-3 with an RBI and a walk Friday against the Nationals.

Galvis batted eighth in the first three games of the season, but Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg moved him up to the No. 2 spot on Friday. It worked out rather nicely on this night. Galvis had an RBI single in the Phillies' four-run seventh, which proved to be the difference in the ballgame. The 25-year-old is going to have some value in NL-only leagues as long as he's playing everyday, but we're not expecting him to bat second on a regular basis.

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer versus the Pirates on Monday.

It was his first extra-base hit in 59 at-bats this spring. If Odubel Herrera were a right-handed hitter, he'd probably bat second for the Phillies. However, he's yet another lefty, so the Phillies aren't going to sandwich him in between Ben Revere and Chase Utley at the top. For that reason, Galvis could find himself in the spot, despite his pathetic .259 OBP in 514 major league at-bats. It'd make him more valuable in NL-only leagues for however long it lasts.
