Freddy Galvis finished 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored as the Phillies hung on for a 4-3 victory over the Reds on Opening Day.
Galvis hit a solo shot off Reds starter Scott Feldman in the top of the second and then doubled and scored on a Jeremy Hellickson triple in the sixth. The 27-year-old shortstop batted eighth for the Phillies on Monday after struggling at the plate for much of the spring. He tallied 20 home runs and 17 stolen bases in 158 games last season, but those totals came alongside a weak .241/.274/.399 overall slash line. Apr 3 - 7:45 PM

Freddy Galvis went 0-for-3 on Sunday and is just 9-for-44 this spring.

Galvis was supposed to play for Venezuela in the WBC, but he skipped the tourney because of a minor groin injury sustained last month. It hasn't cost him time in the Grapefruit League, but his performance thus far has been really lacking. One can take solace in the fact that it's nothing new for him; he had a .497 OPS last spring and hasn't topped .700 since 2013. Even with a top prospect behind him in J.P. Crawford, his job shouldn't be in any danger during the first part of the year.

Freddy Galvis (groin) is participating in workouts fully.

Galvis had to pull out of playing for Venezuela in the upcoming World Baseball Classic due to groin tightness, but he's expected to be fine. "Freddy looks good," Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. "We’re just being cautious."

Freddy Galvis will not play for Venezuela in the upcoming World Baseball Classic due to a groin injury.

It's a day-to-day thing, but he doesn't want to take any chances and make things worse with the season approaching. Galvis was expected to start at shortstop for Venezuela, but now those duties will likely fall to Alcides Escobar.

Freddy Galvis will start at shortstop for Venezuela in next month's World Baseball Classic.

The Phillies will be well-represented on Team Venezuela with Galvis at shortstop and Odubel Herrera manning the outfield alongside Colorado's Carlos Gonzalez and Ender Inciarte of the Braves. Team Venezuela will be coached by 11-time Gold Glove-winner Omar Vizquel. This will mark Galvis' first appearance in the WBC.

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.
Sat, Aug 27, 2016 10:21:00 PM

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.
