BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 When discussing Galvis’s 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 Utley’s 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. It’d 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, he’ll 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 real—most importantly in batting average and power—by 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. He’ll 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.

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)
