BREAKING: Phillies trade Freddy Galvis to Padres for prospect

The Phillies have traded Freddy Galvis to the San Diego Padres for pitcher Enyel De Los Santos, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

Galvis is .245/.287/.372 lifetime over six seasons with the Phils. The 28-year-old shortstop was signed by the Phils out of his native Venezuela in 2006; last year, he played all 162 games, putting up a .255/.309/.382 line with 12 home runs and 61 runs batted in while playing outstanding defense.

De Los Santos, who will be 22 on Christmas Day, put up a 3.78 ERA with 138 strikeouts and 48 walks over 150 innings last season for double-A San Antonio. He throws a high-90s fastball plus curveball and changeup. He projects as a mid- to back-end rotation piece who could be in the majors by the end of 2018.

    Not too bad looking trade, on the surface. Makes me feel better about what we should be looking at getting for Hernandez.
