Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia writes that it's "likely" the Phillies shop Freddy Galvis and Cesar Hernandez on the trade market this winter.
Hernandez's name was popular in trade rumors last offseason, but the Phillies obviously wound up hanging on to him and he had another fine season (.294/.373/.421). He could finally wind up being dealt this winter as Philly looks to clear a spot for Scott Kingery. Galvis has hit only .248/.292/.390 over the last two seasons, but he's popped 32 homers and is viewed as a strong defender at shortstop. Dealing him would allow the Phillies to hand shortstop over to J.P. Crawford. Hernandez is under team control through 2020, while Galvis will be a free agent after next season. Oct 2 - 9:23 PM

Freddy Galvis hit a two-run home run and scored two runs in the Phillies' lopsided win over the Marlins on Thursday.

Galvis popped one of the Phillies' three jacks in a seven-run second inning. It was his 12th homer of the year. An iron man this year, Galvis has played in all 146 of the Phillies' games, batting .256/.308/.391 with 61 RBI, 64 runs scored and 13 steals.
Sep 15 - 12:31 AM

Freddy Galvis is not in the Phillies' lineup Friday.

It's Galvis' first day off of the season, as J.P. Crawford is at shortstop. He could get an additional day or two off, as the Phillies are expected to give Crawford multiple starts at multiple infield positions in the final weeks.
Sep 8 - 3:42 PM

Freddy Galvis will play center field in the second game of Philadelphia's doubleheader with the Braves on Wednesday.

It's the first time Galvis will play any position other than shortstop for the Phillies in 2017. Rosters will expand from 25 to 40 on September 1, and shortstop prospect J.P. Crawford has been killing the ball in the second half at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. It's not a foregone conclusion this is a move to open up a spot for Crawford, but it's pretty close.
Aug 30 - 3:25 PM

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a walk, a run scored, and two steals Friday against the Cubs.

Galvis has swiped three bases over the last two days and is now up to 13 swipes on the year. If you need speed in fantasy leagues, now would be a good time to pick up Galvis. The Phillies will play three games next week against the Braves, who have struggled all year to throw out baserunners.

Aug 18 - 1:06 AM

Freddy Galvis doubled Wednesday in the Phillies’ 3-0 loss to San Diego.

The sixth-inning double was his only hit of the afternoon. It was also one of just three Phillies hits against Clayton Richard, who went the distance for his third career shutout. The 27-year-old has hit safely in five of his last six games, batting .280 (7-for-25) during that span.
Aug 16 - 9:04 PM

Freddy Galvis went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Mets.

He punched an RBI single in the fifth inning to put his squad ahead to stay. He walked and scored an insurance run on a Tommy Joseph sacrifice fly in the eighth. Galvis has a .257 batting average with 11 home runs and 49 RBI. He has stolen 10 bases in 12 attempts.

Aug 4 - 1:59 AM

Freddy Galvis hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday as the Phillies topped the Braves 2-1.

It was part of a 3-for-5 day for Galvis, who's been fairly productive here in July. The 27-year-old shortstop is now slashing .257/.308/.424 with 11 home runs, 44 RBI, nine stolen bases, and 41 runs scored in 102 total games this season.
Jul 30 - 6:14 PM

Freddy Galvis filled up the box score in Friday's victory over the Braves, going 3-for-5 with a triple, two runs scored and two RBI.

Galvis also swiped a pair of bases in the contest. He delivered an RBI triple in the fifth inning and chipped an a run-scoring single to cap the scoring in the eighth. Galvis is enjoying another solid season at the dish, slashing .255/.308/.427 with 11 homers, 43 RBI and nine stolen bases.
Jul 28 - 10:23 PM

Freddy Galvis homered and drove in three runs in Friday’s win over the Brewers.

Galvis slugged a two-run homer in the first inning and later added a sacrifice fly as part of the Brewers’ three-run sixth inning. The 27-year-old has shown more patience this season while batting .251 with 11 homers, 41 RBI, and six steals through 94 games. He’s sporting a career-best .728 OPS.
Jul 21 - 10:36 PM

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.
