Phillies History of International Signings Leaves Much to Be Desired

The Phillies have made a commitment to international signings recently but some wonder if it is too little too late. With talents like Yasiel Puig and Jose Abreu of Cuba already discovered, the Phillies may have missed an opportunity to sign talented players at below-market values. Last year, the Phillies signed the fourth-ranked prospect, third baseman Luis Encarnacion, and Cuban...

Phillies Outright Nix, Galvis Breaks Clavicle

Jayson Nix is gone. He’s been outrighted off the 40-man roster, so he can either accept a trip to Lehigh Valley, or become a free agent. A corresponding move will come before tomorrow’s game against the Los Angeles Angels. Which move that will be is unclear. It could be Cesar Hernandez or Ronny Cedeno. It’s unlikely to be Darin Ruf, who just started his rehab assignment at...

The Phillies send Freddy Galvis down to the minors

While transactions involving utlilitymen aren’t the biggest deal, Freddy Galvis is a more famous than usual utilityman. And, given the age of the Phillies, he’s more important for spelling/pinch running purposes than a lot of other teams’ bench dudes might be. But he has started the season as a walking, talking tire fire, so the Phillies optioned utilityman Freddy Galvis to...

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...

Notes: Galvis, Hernandez, Time of Game

-Freddy Galvis is back with the team, Cesar Hernandez heads to Reading to make room. They’ll need Galvis to be the super utility man he’s shown flashes of in the past. If he can be, that will at least give the Phillies a slightly different element off the bench. Look for him to start here and there to give the vets a breather. -Hernandez is headed to Double-A Reading and not...
