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.
Jun 6 - 11:17 PM

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-3 with a double and stole home plate to secure the Phillies' lone run in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

As a team the Phillies were only able to muster a total of five hits against Kyle Hendricks on Saturday, with Galvis the lone standout offensively. With his two-hit afternoon, he's now hitting .251/.280/.391 with four homers, 17 RBI and three swipes on the season.
May 28 - 4:50 PM

Freddy Galvis hit a two-run home run and scored twice in Thursday's win over the Braves.

Galvis pulled an Aaron Blair fastball into the right field seats for the two-run shot in the fourth inning. It was his fourth of the season, giving him 17 RBI and 14 runs scored in 34 games. The 26-year-old is batting just .230/.261/.381 overall.
May 12 - 11:43 PM

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to help the Phillies top the Indians 4-3 on Saturday.

Galvis took Indians starter Trevor Bauer deep for a two-run shot in the first inning, but it was his RBI single in the bottom of the seventh that proved to be the difference in the game. Galvis now has three home runs, 10 RBI and 10 runs scored to go with a .233/.264/.419 line through 23 games.
Apr 30 - 10:31 PM

Freddy Galvis went 1-for-3 with an RBI-triple in the Phillies' 5-2 win over the Brewers.

Galvis smacked a triple down the right-field line in the fifth inning. It gave the Phillies the lead and raised his average to .246. He moved back up to second in the batting order on Friday, which makes him a bit more interesting in really deep mixed leagues. The best thing for his fantasy value, though, would be to start running more often on the bases. Batting in front of Maikel Franco makes that very unlikely, and if he moves down to seventh or eighth in the order, there's very little reason to own him anyway.
Apr 22 - 11:54 PM

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-5 with his second home run of the season, a two-run shot against the Mets on Wednesday.

The light-hitting shortstop tied up the game in the second inning when Bartolo Colon left a fastball up in the zone. He already has four doubles and two homers on the year, well over pace from a year ago, but is still only hitting .241/.262/.414 in 61 plate appearances. Galvis has already been moved down the batting order and shouldn't be on your fantasy roster.
Apr 20 - 11:50 PM

Freddy Galvis hit a walkoff RBI double in the Phillies' 3-2 win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Galvis walked it off against Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon, moments after Andres Blanco had tied the game with an RBI single. That erased a Bryce Harper go-ahead solo shot from the top of the 10th.
Apr 17 - 5:30 PM

Freddy Galvis has been bumped down to the sixth spot for Tuesday's game against the Padres.

Galvis has delivered an ugly .179/.172/.321 batting line so far this season, so Phillies manager Pete Mackanin has decided to make a change in the leadoff spot, at least for one night. Cesar Hernandez will lead things off for Philadelphia while Odubel Herrera is in the No. 2 spot.
Apr 12 - 3:18 PM

Freddy Galvis went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Monday’s loss to the Padres.

Galvis now owns an ugly .179/.172/.321 batting line over his first seven games this season. The 26-year-old entered Monday’s action with a .280 career on-base percentage, so he’s a very poor fit for the top of the lineup. It might not be long before Cesar Hernandez moves to the top of the order and Galvis slides down to the bottom-third.
Apr 11 - 6:29 PM

Freddy Galvis socked a two-run homer in the Phillies’ season-opening loss to the Reds.

Galvis got off to a hot start last year only to finish with a mediocre .263/.302/.343 batting line, but he’ll serve as Philadelphia’s starting shortstop while top prospect J.P. Crawford gets some more seasoning in the minors. There’s not a lot of fantasy upside here, but he should do enough to have value in NL-only formats.
Apr 4 - 7:50 PM

Freddy Galvis went 0-for-5 from the leadoff spot on Sunday, dropping his spring average to .200.

Galvis has hit at or near the top of the order quite a bit this spring, but we're still assuming he'll find himself in the eighth spot when the games begin to matter. That's certainly where he belongs.
Mar 27 - 4:17 PM

Freddy Galvis is locked in as the Phillies' Opening Day shortstop.

Top prospect J.P. Crawford is in Clearwater with the Phils but he's likely to begin the year in the minors. Galvis put up serviceable numbers last year in his first season as an everyday player, hitting .263 with seven homers and 10 steals. Crawford should arrive in the majors later this season. When that happens, he'll push Galvis for the starting job.
Feb 22 - 9:02 AM

Phillies and SS Freddy Galvis avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2 million contract.

In his first arbitration-eligible season, Galvis earns himself a raise from $513,500 to $2 million. This past season, he hit .263/.302/.343 with seven homers, 50 RBI and 10 steals across 559 at-bats. 2015 was the first season in which he saw more than 205 at-bats. The 26-year-old shortstop could improve on those numbers in 2016, as he should benefit from his newfound starting experience.
