Phillies' Freddy Galvis finding success with new approach at the plate


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis entered this season with a goal from the coaching staff: put the ball on the ground more, according to Philly.com.

So far, it's working out. Galvis went 3 for 3 with two runs scored in Philadelphia's 5-4 win over the Braves Sunday. He's hitting .361 in 61 at-bats so far this season.

"The coaches told me in spring training that I had to stay on the ground, hit line drives, and I really like it and enjoy it," Galvis said.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis is back in the lineup Sunday after leaving Saturday's game with a rib injury following an excellent defensive play.

"When I landed after the throw, my elbow hit my rib," Galvis said before Sunday's game, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "I am feeling pretty good now."

Galvis is batting eighth Sunday. He owns a .328/.381/.431 line with one home run and eight RBI in 58 at-bats.

The Phillies are favorites (-110) against the Braves Sunday.

Howard moved back to the No. 5 spot in the order for just the second time this season. Utley returned to his regular No. 3 spot, while Ruiz batted seventh, followed by Galviz eighth.

Philadelphia is considered a slight underdog (+105) at home against Atlanta, per VegasInsider.com.

Freddy Galvis goes deep for Phillies


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

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.


Freddy Galvis goes three for three in Phillies win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis went three for three in the 4-1 win over the Nationals. He had a double, walk and an RBI on the night.

"Freddy's just really staying within himself with his swing," manager Ryne Sandberg said, per Philly.com. "He's not trying to do too much, he's using his hands and he's staying on top of the ball very well and so, resulting not only in hard, ground-ball hits, but the line drives."

Galvis is hitting .385 this season. 


Phillies 2B Freddy Galvis to use bigger bat


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Phillies second baseman Freddy Galvis is hoping that a switch to a bigger bat will mean more hits, according to MLB.com.

Galvis has been swinging too hard and he is now using a 35 inch, 33 ounce U1 bat. The Phillies hope the new bat will stop him from over swinging.

"It's a bat that's not about being down on the nob and over swinging for home runs," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "He's taken to it very well. It's been a good thing for him."

After singling in the team's loss against the Astros, his batting average raised to .280. The 25-year-old plans to use the new bats during the season.

"I knew I over swung, but I didn't know with the heavy bat I'd have more control," Galvis said. "I thought with a heavy bat I'd have to do more to get to the ball. But what it showed me is if you relax your hands and let the ball come to you and throw the bat [at the ball], that's it. Because when you hit it good, it's going to go."


Phillies not worried about Freddy Galvis' bat


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Freddy Galvis is replacing Jimmy Rollins as the Phillies shortstop this year. The team has no worries that Galvis is up to the challenge defensively. 

Galvis hit just .176 last year, however, with four home runs and 12 RBI, a far cry from the production the team has come to expect from the position. 

The Phillies don't seem to be worried. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. is confident that Galvis will hit. "Because he's an intelligent player," Amaro told Philly.com's Ryan Lawrence. "He's going to learn, he's going to make adjustments and I think he has the potential to do that."

Coach Larry Bowa and manager Ryne Sandberg said that it's important for Galvis to realize what role he needs to fill. 

"He's got to recognize what kind of hitter he is - he's a singles hitter," Bowa said. Keep the ball in the middle of the field . . . Put the ball in play. ... He cannot strike out, not move runners."

"he needs to be ready to do some little things: hit-and-run, bunt and safety squeeze, put the ball in play and shorten up," Sandberg said. "That's the biggest thing is for him to stay within that approach in staying short and looking for consistent contact and using the whole field."


Phillies leaning on Freddy Galvis at shortstop to start in 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. has a hole to fill at shortstop this season after trading Jimmy Rollins. The Phillies have Freddy Galvis on the roster in addition to a top prospect J.P. Crawford. But Philadelphia is planning to lean on Galvis at the beginning of the season.

"We can't have it both ways," Amaro Jr. said. "We have to either give young players the opportunity to play to find out if they can play or not. That's kind of where we are. Right now, Freddy is the guy that will get the opportunity to be our shortstop."

Galvis hit .176 in 2014 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 119 plate appearances.


Phillies GM Ruben Amaro might add shortstop, catcher during camp


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said he doesn't plan to add a veteran shortstop or catcher before spring training opens, per ESPN. However, he could add to the roster at both positions during camp.

According to the depth chart on the team's official website, Carlos Ruiz remains the starting catcher and Cameron Rupp, who has played just 22 games at the major-league level, is his backup. Freddy Galvis is listed as the only shortstop in the wake of Jimmy Rollins' trade to Los Angeles.


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.


Freddy Galvis explodes for three hits in Tuesday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) The first three-hit game for Freddy Galvis since last September pretty much handed the Phillies a victory Tuesday night against Pittsburgh.

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.

by R.J. White | 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.
