Freddy Galvis went bonkers on Sunday, belting two homers in the Phillies’ 7-1 win over the Padres.

Galvis was responsible for two of the Phillies’ six homers on Sunday. He was clearly swinging for the fences in this one, striking out twice in addition to his two long balls. Sunday was his second multi-homer game of the year after leaving the yard twice in a win over the Giants on June 4. The 27-year-old will finish the first half with 10 round-trippers, six steals and a .251 average.
Jul 9 - 7:01 PM

Freddy Galvis reached base three times and stole a base in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

Offense was hard to come by for the Phillies in this one, as they were limited to just six hits in being shut out. Galvis, though, doubled and drew a pair of walks in addition to his steal. His .254/.305/.418 batting line is unimpressive, but Galvis is on pace for 16 homers and 12 thefts.
Jul 4 - 7:42 PM

Freddy Galvis swatted a two-run homer in the first inning on Monday as the Phillies shut out the Pirates.

Galvis also singled and rode home on Maikel Franco's home run in the third inning, finishing the night 2-for-4. He's hitting a respectable .257/.303/.419 with eight long balls and 33 RBI on the season.
Jul 3 - 9:56 PM

Freddy Galvis finished with three singles, a run scored and two RBI over five at-bats in Tuesday's victory in Seattle.

Galvis is on a hot streak, going 13-for-31 (.419) with three doubles, a triple and a home run over the past seven outings to raise his average from .230 to .252 just since June 20. He has just 10 multi-hit outings combined in April and May, but he has 10 games with two or more hits already in June.
Jun 28 - 3:06 AM

Freddy Galvis homered from each side of the plate on Sunday, powering the Phillies to a come-from-behind 9-7 victory over the Giants.

Galvis blasted a two-run homer off of Matt Moore in the second inning, then capped off the game's offense with a solo homer in the eighth. In homering from each side of the plate, Galvis became the first Phillie to do so since Jimmy Rollins in 2011. He finished the afternoon 2-for-4 with two runs scored and three RBI and is now hitting .241/.292/.424 with six homers and 28 RBI on the season.
Jun 4 - 6:32 PM

Freddy Galvis went 1-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's loss to the Marlins.

Galvis' double -- his 11th of the season -- was one of only two extra-base hits the Phillies managed on the afternoon. He struck out in two of his other three at-bats. Overall, the shortstop is hitting an uninspiring .232/.286/.392 with four homers, 24 RBI and 17 runs scored across 51 games played.
May 31 - 4:42 PM

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs in a losing effort against the Natinonals on Sunday.

Galvis smacked a go-ahead two-run triple off of Jacob Turner that gave the Phillies a 5-4 lead in the top half of the eighth inning, but the Phillies were unable to hang on. With his two-hit attack, Galvis is now hitting .248/.296/.434 with four homers and 23 RBI on the season.
May 14 - 10:58 PM

Freddy Galvis came through with a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning on Sunday, propelling the Phillies to a walk-off 6-5 victory over the Nationals.

The Phillies' rallied with three runs in the eighth to force extra innings. They then loaded the bases with no outs against Blake Treinen in the 10th. Andres Blanco struck out, bringing Galvis to the plate to deliver the winning run. Galvis also had a two-run single earlier in the day, finishing the afternoon 1-for-3 with three RBI. He's now hitting .250/.294/.444 with four homers and 19 RBI on the season.
May 7 - 6:42 PM

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 and hit a solo home run in a win over the Marlins on Wednesday.

His .243 batting average is rather pedestrian but his counting stats are good enough to make him a quality fantasy starter in NL-only leagues. He has three home runs, nine runs scored and 10 RBI in 70 at-bats. He has swiped just one bag so far after stealing 17 last year.
Apr 26 - 10:12 PM

Freddy Galvis finished 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored as the Phillies hung on for a 4-3 victory over the Reds on Opening Day.

Galvis hit a solo shot off Reds starter Scott Feldman in the top of the second and then doubled and scored on a Jeremy Hellickson triple in the sixth. The 27-year-old shortstop batted eighth for the Phillies on Monday after struggling at the plate for much of the spring. He tallied 20 home runs and 17 stolen bases in 158 games last season, but those totals came alongside a weak .241/.274/.399 overall slash line.
Apr 3 - 7:45 PM

Freddy Galvis went 0-for-3 on Sunday and is just 9-for-44 this spring.

Galvis was supposed to play for Venezuela in the WBC, but he skipped the tourney because of a minor groin injury sustained last month. It hasn't cost him time in the Grapefruit League, but his performance thus far has been really lacking. One can take solace in the fact that it's nothing new for him; he had a .497 OPS last spring and hasn't topped .700 since 2013. Even with a top prospect behind him in J.P. Crawford, his job shouldn't be in any danger during the first part of the year.
Mar 19 - 4:01 PM

Freddy Galvis (groin) is participating in workouts fully.

Galvis had to pull out of playing for Venezuela in the upcoming World Baseball Classic due to groin tightness, but he's expected to be fine. "Freddy looks good," Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. "We’re just being cautious."

Freddy Galvis will not play for Venezuela in the upcoming World Baseball Classic due to a groin injury.

It's a day-to-day thing, but he doesn't want to take any chances and make things worse with the season approaching. Galvis was expected to start at shortstop for Venezuela, but now those duties will likely fall to Alcides Escobar.
Feb 15 - 9:00 AM

Freddy Galvis will start at shortstop for Venezuela in next month's World Baseball Classic.

The Phillies will be well-represented on Team Venezuela with Galvis at shortstop and Odubel Herrera manning the outfield alongside Colorado's Carlos Gonzalez and Ender Inciarte of the Braves. Team Venezuela will be coached by 11-time Gold Glove-winner Omar Vizquel. This will mark Galvis' first appearance in the WBC.
