Report: Phillies close to sending Freddy Galvis to Padres

UPDATE: AJ Cassavell, the Padres beat reporter at MLB.com, says the deal is happening. The Phils are likely to get a “minor league pitcher” in return.

According to Scott Miller of Bleacher Report, the Phillies are close to trading Freddy Galvis to the Padres.

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.

    I would hope we get more than just 1 minor league pitcher in return for an everyday gold glove infielder. GO PHILLIES

      Galvis is just not that good overall, given his hitting which is among the worst in MLB. And he becomes a free agent after 2018, so SD only gets him for one year at the $7-8 million arbitration rate.
