On Sunday, the Phillies disposed of journeyman Yuniesky Betancourt because they have faith in Freddy Galvis. And on Tuesday, Galvis continued his spring tear, going 2-for-4 with a home run, his third of the spring, and three RBI in the Phillies 4-1 victory over Tampa Bay. Galvis now has 12 extra-base hits in 70 at-bats during Spring Training, good for a .905 OPS. Any worries about his back injury from last season should be gone. He also played left field today, clearly without incident. The kid can do it all. Kevin Frandsen also did work today, going 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI. Domonic Brown finished 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs, and a RBI. Brown’s spring average climbed to .373. It was a bullpen game for the Phillies pitching staff with Raul Valdes leading off and going three innings, allowing one run, while fanning five. Mike Stutes, Jeremy Horst, Colby Shreve, Antonio Bastardo, Steven Inch, and Jonathan Papelbon went the rest of the way holding the Rays scoreless.
