Galvis went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's 9-3 loss to the Marlins. The homer was Galvis' second this month and his ninth of the season. He has hit .262/.281/.377 thus far this month after hitting just .178/.217/.287 in the month of June.
Galvis is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals. Andres Blanco will take over at shortstop and bat third in the order Saturday with the Phillies facing left hander Danny Duffy. Galvis has struggled mightily against southpaws this season, hitting .160 with a .200 slugging percentage. He could return to the lineup Sunday when the Phillies face hard-throwing righty Yordano Ventura, however.
Galvis went 2-for-3 with a triple, home run and career-high five RBI in Thursday's win over the Twins. Galvis entered the game in an 8-for-78 slide since May 31 that dropped his batting average to .211. After an RBI triple in the sixth, he hit a no-doubt, three-run homer to right field in the eighth inning to make it 7-2. He's slashing .216/.248/.358 -- all of which are below his career averages -- through 71 games and 282 at-bats this year.
Galvis went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in a loss to the Cubs on Monday. The home run was Galvis' emergence from an 0-for-22 stretch. The shortstop is hitting just .234 this season, but has shown a surprising amount of power, collecting six home runs thus far. Galvis is just one homer away from matching his career-high in long balls.
Galvis is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Brewers. The Phillies will employ a pair of switch-hitters up the middle for Friday's contest in an attempt to get some better looks at the plate against Milwaukee ace Jimmy Nelson. Andres Blanco will take over at shortstop while Cesar Hernandez gets the start at second base Friday. Galvis, who has appeared in all-but one game this season heading into Friday, figures to draw back in into the lineup Saturday.
