Phillies and SS Freddy Galvis avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one year, $4.35 million contract.
Galvis made $2 million last year, so he is getting a nice raise. He provides most of his value on defense, but broke out with 20 homers last season. He also steals bases, but his batting average and on-base percentage are anchors on his fantasy value. Jan 12 - 4:56 PM

Freddy Galvis (hamstring) fouled out to first base as a pinch-hitter Sunday versus the Mets.

Galvis was held out of the Phillies' starting lineup for their last two regular season games after tweaking his right hamstring on Friday night. He finishes 2016 with a career-high 20 home runs but a weak .241/.274/.399 overall batting line. The 26-year-old infielder is eligible for salary arbitration this winter.

Freddy Galvis (hamstring) is not in the Phillies starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's showdown against the Mets.

Galvis was forced to leave Friday's game due to tightness in his right hamstring. It's the first day that Galvis has been out of the lineup in the club's last 49 contests. It's unclear if he'll be able to return on Sunday, or if the Phillies will play it safe and simply shut him down for the remainder of the season.

Freddy Galvis was forced to leave Friday's game against the Mets due to tightness in his right hamstring.

The injury isn't believed to be serious, but it could certainly impact his availability the rest of the way. The 26-year-old has shown surprising power this season, hitting 20 long balls and plating 67 runs while swiping 17 bases.

Freddy Galvis went 3-for-4 and hit his 20th homer Sunday against the Marlins.

Galvis is about as bad of an offensive player as a 20-homer guy can be, but it's something. The former PED user has as many homers in 543 at-bats this year as he did in 1,073 career at-bats coming into the season.

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 and hit a two-run homer in a win over the Pirates on Wednesday.

The second-inning bomb gave the Phillies an early lead they would never relinquish. Galvis is up to 19 longballs and has stolen 13 bases but the rest of his stats lag behind. He has a .239 batting average with 57 runs scored and 64 RBI after 143 games. He suffices as a backup but is not worthy of starting in fantasy lineups.

Freddy Galvis went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Monday’s 6-2 win over the Marlins.

Galvis tied things up with a two-run shot against Jake Esch in the top of the fifth before the Phillies took the lead later in the frame. The 26-year-old has quietly managed 16 homers and 13 steals this season, though he’s batting just .235/.270/.393 overall. Top prospect J.P. Crawford now appears unlikely to be called up this month, so the playing time should continue to be there down the stretch.

Freddy Galvis smacked a solo home run for the Phillies' only run of the evening against the Nationals on Wednesday.

It was his only hit of the night and one of just two the Phillies could manage in the pitchers' duel. The home run was his 15th of the season after hitting a paltry seven in a full season last year. His .236 batting average has taken a step backward however. He hit .263 last year.

Freddy Galvis slugged a solo homer in Saturday’s loss to the Mets.

His third-inning blast was the only offense the Phillies could muster against Noah Syndergaard and the Mets’ bullpen. In fact, they managed just three hits. Galvis has three homers in his last seven games and is now up to 14 homers and 12 steals through 126 games overall. While he has an ugly .233/.266/.380 batting line, he has managed to salvage some value in deeper fantasy formats.

Freddy Galvis hit his 13th home run of the year in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

Galvis hit the solo shot in the seventh inning, the only Phillies run on the night. The 13 home runs are easily a career high for the 26-year-old, who had just 20 in parts of four seasons coming into 2016. Despite the sudden power, Galvis is hitting a disappointing .233/.265/.375 overall.

Freddy Galvis went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers.

Galvis connected for a three-run shot off reliever Grant Dayton in the seventh inning. It was his 11th of the season and boosted his RBI total to 45. The 26-year-old shortstop is slashing just .231/.261/.367 for the season as a whole. He should be looking over his shoulder for the shadow of top infield prospect J.P. Crawford at this point.
Wed, Aug 10, 2016 08:23:00 PM

Freddy Galvis went 0-for-4 against the Dodgers on Monday.

Galvis's OPS has held pretty steady in the low-.600s the last three months (.606 right now), so he's not standing in J.P. Crawford's way if the Phillies want to bring up their top prospect in September. Still, it's not at all clear that they'll go that route.

Freddy Galvis cranked a go-ahead two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning Wednesday as the Phillies topped the Braves 4-3.

Atlanta took a 3-2 lead on an Adonis Garcia RBI double in the top of the eighth, but the Phillies answered right back with a Maikel Franco leadoff walk and Galvis' two-out, two-run shot. Galvis has a weak .221/.250/.359 overall batting line in 84 games this season, but he's run into eight home runs and 35 RBI. He also stole a base on Wednesday as part of a 2-for-4 day and now has five steals on the year.

Freddy Galvis homered, tripled and knocked in five runs as the Phillies topped the Twins 7-3 on Thursday.

Galvis picked up an RBI on a squeeze bunt his first time up and then sacrificed again in his second plate appearance. Nonetheless, he finished with five RBI, making him the first person since Hack Wilson in 1928 with two sac hits and five RBI in a game. The homer was a three-run shot off Kevin Jepsen.

Freddy Galvis drilled a three-run homer in Monday's loss to the Cubs.

Jon Lester was pulled after eight shutout innings and Justin Grimm promptly gave up two singles and Galvis' bomb before being pulled. The dinger broke a 0-for-21 streak for the veteran infielder.
