Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis finally set to start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) Shortstop Freddy Galvis has been waiting for several years for a full-time opportunity from the Phillies and now he's got it. But general manager Ruben Amaro did not exactly give him a ringing endorsement Friday.

"Whether he's earned it or not, we don't know," Amaro told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

He has not earned it at the plate. Galvis owns a .218 lifetime batting average and hit a mere .176 with a meager .227 on-base percentage last season.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Galvis fell a triple short of the cycle. He blasted a solo home run in the fifth inning and scored three runs, including the game-winner in the seventh inning. He raised his batting average from .085 to a less-disturbing .129 and even recorded his first stolen base of the season.

Slumping Freddy Galvis sent down to Triple-A


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Each game he's getting five or six at-bats a day with this plan. So, he'll continue to play games and he'll build up to 20-25 at-bats in a quick time, so he's on the fast track."

Galvis could be back with the Phillies before the team's current homestand ends April 17.

Freddy Galvis an underrated NL-only option


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/30/2013) Despite hitting just .231 on the season, Phillies infielder Freddy Galvis has some value in deeper leagues. He's eligibile at second, third, and shortstop in most formats, he's playing every day while Chase Utley is on the disabled list and does have some speed potential. 

Optimistic outlooks have Utley out for another three weeks, meaning Galvis will continue to play every day well into June. Owned in just 6 percent of leagues, Galvis isn't necessarily a great option, but he does offer roster flexibility for NL-only formats at three weak positions. Couple that with Galvis getting regular at-bats, and there's some marginal value there -- definitely more than his 6 percent ownership would suggest.
