Galvis was 3-for-20 in the series and is now 3-for-23 in his last five games. He is still leading all National League shortstops with a .319 batting average, but it was at .353 a week ago.

Ryne Sandberg said he expected Galvis to maintain a shorter swing and "pepper the ball" this weekend against Washington.

Freddy Galvis embracing second spot in lineup for Phillies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Early returns on the placement of Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis to the second spot in the order: So far, so good.

Galvis hit second for the fourth time in five games Tuesday against the Mets. He has five hits in 16 at-bats in those games and is 8 for 19 during that stretch. Manager Ryne Sandberg believes Galvis boasts the skill set to thrive in that spot.

"I've talked to Freddy all spring about what kind of a hitter it takes to bat second," Sandberg told the Philadelphia Daily News. "If there's a man on first, you can utilize the hole by hitting the hole over there. If you see a guy break early on in the count, you can afford to take a pitch and let him steal. If he steals second, you can get him over any way you can. So it's a guy who can handle the bat, use the whole field, put the bat on the ball and know the game situations.

"He's already shown that so far in this early season and the whole spring, whether it's hitting second or eighth, I think he's taken to it pretty well, especially with his adjustments on the bat. And his approach is a little bit shorter mentally, not trying to hit the ball out of the ballpark, but just trying to put the bat on the ball. It's been successful for him."

Galvis, who has just a .225 lifetime average, was batting .400 before going hitless Tuesday.
