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. Apr 18 - 4:43 PM

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.

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-3 with an RBI against the Rays on Sunday.

Galvis has hit second a couple of times this spring, but he was in the ninth spot today. We hope the Phillies have no plans to hit him any higher than eighth in games that count; Galvis has a little pop, but his OBP stands at .259 in 514 major league at-bats.
Mar 8 - 5:02 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, Apr 10, 2014 05:11:00 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.
