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.
Apr 29 - 12:28 AM

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.
Apr 21 - 9:42 PM

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.
Apr 13 - 4:20 PM

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.
Apr 10 - 10:07 PM

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.
Mar 30 - 4:58 PM

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.
