FREDDY GALVIS RUMORS

Phillies hope for improved approach at plate from Galvis

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) Jimmy Rollins is Philadelphia's franchise leader in hits. The man in line to replace him at shortstop batted .176 last year. Needless to say, Freddy Galvis will have to exceed expectations to give the Phillies anything close to the offensive production they received from Rollins, who was traded during the offseason after 15 years in Philadelphia. Galvis is...

Galvis Must Find Offensive Consistency

With Jimmy Rollins officially being traded to the Dodgers, the Phillies will have to find a new shortstop. The early favorite to land the job? Freddy Galvis. By now, Phillies fans are quite familiar with the 25-year-old utility man.

Riddle Me This- Playing Time for Freddy Galvis

Ryne Sandberg has gone on record as to wanting to keep his bench bats fresh.  Not sure why when the bench consists of perennial duds like Jayson Nix, Freddy Galvis, and John Mayberry. But hey, I'm not a MLB manager.  The one that baffles me the most is Galvis, who is batting a robust .056 (1-18).  Through parts of 3 seasons he's a career .223/.624 hitter with atrocious on base...

The future at shortstop for the Philadelphia Phillies

For 13 seasons, Jimmy Rollins has manned the shortstop position for the Philadelphia Phillies.  One of the main reasons for the Phillies success this past decade is due to Rollins being a five-tool player for the the team.  However, as the saying goes, all good things come to an end, and Rollins’ contract runs out after this season unless the vesting option kicks in.  In order...

Galvis to Start Over Rollins Again

Ryne Sandberg has been favoring Freddy Galvis at shortstop as of late. That trend continues again today as Galvis is scheduled to start at shortstop for the third consecutive game as the Phillies take on the Yankees today at Bright House Field. Galvis, who went 1-2 with a triple, walk, and RBI in yesterday’s 6-5 win against the Orioles, has been a favorite of Sandberg throughout...
