BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 There's something comforting and absolving about glove-first players. It could be the way we regard their typical offensive shortcomings with the encouragement of supportive parents, heads slightly cocked with a knowing and sad, yet understanding, closed-lip smile as we play armchair coxswain trying to fix the timing issue that's mired them in their latest 0-for-20 slide. This used to be Galvis, and somewhere along the way, the glove became more above-average than special while the slumps at the plate persisted, and the corners of our parental mouths began to droop. Galvis is, in other words, losing his luster and, in a race against time, must be able to reestablish his value as a major-league infielder before the ascendance of J.P. Crawford. After that, maybe he beats out Cesar Hernandez for a starting gig, or maybe that ends his regular playing days in Philadelphia. It's hard to imagine him disappearing entirely—Pete Kozma still pokes his head up each season, after all—but a first-division starter Galvis is not.
2015 We try to avoid rinse-n-repeat comments in this book; after 162 games there's always something new to say, good or bad, about every player. Except for one Freddy Galvis. Same as always: He can field. He can't hit. But he can field. That makes him the 26th guy on a roster, wearing out a path between Lehigh Valley and Philadelphia. At 25, another player could reasonably add to his offense, but not Freddy Galvis, no sir, not Freddy Galvis. One comment for the 2016 Annual done.
2014 Galvis does one thing very wellpick itand one thing very poorlyhit itbut, roster inflexibility being what it is in Philadelphia, he spent part of 2013 in left field, neither picking nor hitting. The bat is just punchy enough to support a strong defensive shortstop (which Galvis is), but not a corner outfielder. So, while the experience in left adds a wrinkle to his resume, it doesn't do much for his long-term value.
2013 When discussing Galviss hitting, it's worth noting that he has an excellent glove. The prototypical eight-spot hitter found himself in the Opening Day lineup for the Phillies last year because of Chase Utleys injury. He started off horribly, with a 519 OPS in April, before posting a more tolerable 705 in May. Soon thereafter, he was popped for banned substances and hit with a 50-game suspension. Even when that ended, a fractured back kept him out the rest of the year. Itd be foolish to think he was flailing in April, took something illegal, and then became useful in May. He is better than that first month and maybe as good as his second at his peak. Galvis will never be much of an offensive force. He's best deployed as a defensive replacement all around the infield.
2012 The re-signing of Jimmy Rollins spares Delaware Valley residents a season of watching a yet-unready Freddy Galvis hit every day. In the meantime, hell give Lehigh Valley residents the pleasure of watching him field. He had a nice enough year in Double-A, but it was the first year he ever posted an OPS above 600. If he can prove the gains are realmost importantly in batting average and powerby repeating them at Triple-A, then it will be reasonable to start thinking about Galvis as an everyday player.
2011 Galvis is a dazzling defensive shortstop who has yet to manifest any offensive success, and that goes for the Venezuelan Winter League, too. Hell only have to hit well enough to bat eighth, but even that is looking increasingly like a challenge, as he hasn't shown an aptitude for excelling in any of the triple-slash stats. Just 21, he likely has room to grow, and if he can learn to hit like Wilson Valdez, well, you never know. He did hit better in the second half, so having him double up in Double-A would be wise.
2010 Freddy Galvis plays excellent defense and has a very strong arm, but he doesn't hit the ball very hard, having the ability to ground out to all fields.
2008 Freddy Galvis is toolsy, but completely unformed. Already a very strong defender, his bat is as yet nonexistent, but he's young enough that it could develop to the point at which he'd be a viable major leaguer regular.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Need a shortstop in NL-only deep dynasty league, traditional 5x5, and options are running slim: Gregorious, Furcal, Hechavarria, Dee Gordon, Ruben Tejada, Freddy Galvis, Haveabananarama. Not a rebuilding team, should compete this year, but did not keep Gregorious.
(Greg from KC)
Gordon is the guy I'd take a flier on at the moment. OBP risk and could flame out again but he has the upside. Furcal and Gregorius are the next two players on my list but - as you point out - this is a deep NL-only so the options are unsurprisingly uninspiring. (Mike Gianella)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)2014 Phillies. Who gets the most-to-least big league plate appearances? Cody Asche, Maikel Franco, Freddy Galvis, Cesar Hernandez, Delmon Young, Michael Martinez?
(Broken Arrow from Far From Philly)
Cody Asche, just a hunch no real thing to back that up. (Zach Mortimer)
2012-03-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)The kid has looked great! With Mayberry looking strong, the Phils are not the old people's home the press makes them out to be. Agreed?
(Fear Freddy Galvis! from second base)
Freddy Galvis and John Mayberry do not make the Phillies a suddenly youthful team. Age is still a concern. (Kevin Goldstein)
2012-04-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jason, really have enjoyed your spring training articles. Was wondering how you'd rate the gloves of three glove-first SS in the news this spring Freddy Galvis, jose iglesias and andrelton simmons? Any 8s here? Any of them have a chance to to be anything beyond an 8/9 hole hitter?
(Matt from NJ)
Thanks. 8s are very rare. You will see some 8s on the glove of Iglesias, but even the best gloves struggle to live up to that elite grade. I don't see anyone in that group that profiles above an 8/9 hole hitter. You can dream of the what-ifs, and there are always what-ifs that take a player from the present to the future, but I don't see the type of stick necessary to hit atop a major league lineup. But if the gloves prove to be 7+ tools, the skill-set in the field will buttress the offensive deficiencies. (Jason Parks)
2011-09-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Freddy Galvis isn't all glove anymore, is he?
(bp from Philadelphia)
Sure isn't, but all he's really done is prove he can play every day while batting 8th. (Kevin Goldstein)
