Galvis Optioned

Freddy GalvisThe Phillies optioned Freddy Galvis to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following tonight’s 12-6 loss to the Blue Jays.

They said they will make a corresponding move before tomorrow night’s game against the Mets at Citi Field. Triple-A infielder Reid Brignac is a possibility. He is hitting .284 with five home runs and 21 RBIs in 30 games. He hit two homers today.

Galvis’ demotion did not come as a surprise. He went 0-for-3 with one walk and one strikeout. He is hitting .048 (2-for-42) with one RBI, three walks and 12 strikeouts in 16 games.

“He needs to go, play, get at-bats and gather himself a little bit,” Ryne Sandberg said. “He might have been rushed up here a little bit, with not having Spring Training.”

Galvis missed some time in March when he suffered a MRSA infection in his left knee.

“I missed a lot of games,” Galvis said. “I missed a lot of at-bats. That’s why I’m going down, you know? To get my at-bats, try to get my approach and try to swing the bat better. I don’t feel sad. I don’t feel bad or nothing. I’m just going to go there and work on my hitting. That’s it.”

My goodness what took soooooo long to make a move! It was getting embarrassing for Freddy. Also Freddy, needs to have a slice of “humble pie'” and stop trying to be so “cavalier.”
