Phillies not worried about Freddy Galvis' bat
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Freddy Galvis is replacing Jimmy Rollins as the Phillies shortstop this year. The team has no worries that Galvis is up to the challenge defensively. 

Galvis hit just .176 last year, however, with four home runs and 12 RBI, a far cry from the production the team has come to expect from the position. 

The Phillies don't seem to be worried. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. is confident that Galvis will hit. "Because he's an intelligent player," Amaro told Philly.com's Ryan Lawrence. "He's going to learn, he's going to make adjustments and I think he has the potential to do that."

Coach Larry Bowa and manager Ryne Sandberg said that it's important for Galvis to realize what role he needs to fill. 

"He's got to recognize what kind of hitter he is - he's a singles hitter," Bowa said. Keep the ball in the middle of the field . . . Put the ball in play. ... He cannot strike out, not move runners."

"he needs to be ready to do some little things: hit-and-run, bunt and safety squeeze, put the ball in play and shorten up," Sandberg said. "That's the biggest thing is for him to stay within that approach in staying short and looking for consistent contact and using the whole field."

Phillies leaning on Freddy Galvis at shortstop to start in 2015
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. has a hole to fill at shortstop this season after trading Jimmy Rollins. The Phillies have Freddy Galvis on the roster in addition to a top prospect J.P. Crawford. But Philadelphia is planning to lean on Galvis at the beginning of the season.

"We can't have it both ways," Amaro Jr. said. "We have to either give young players the opportunity to play to find out if they can play or not. That's kind of where we are. Right now, Freddy is the guy that will get the opportunity to be our shortstop."

Galvis hit .176 in 2014 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 119 plate appearances.

Phillies GM Ruben Amaro might add shortstop, catcher during camp
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said he doesn't plan to add a veteran shortstop or catcher before spring training opens, per ESPN. However, he could add to the roster at both positions during camp.

According to the depth chart on the team's official website, Carlos Ruiz remains the starting catcher and Cameron Rupp, who has played just 22 games at the major-league level, is his backup. Freddy Galvis is listed as the only shortstop in the wake of Jimmy Rollins' trade to Los Angeles.

Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis finally set to start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Shortstop Freddy Galvis has been waiting for several years for a full-time opportunity from the Phillies and now he's got it. But general manager Ruben Amaro did not exactly give him a ringing endorsement Friday.

"Whether he's earned it or not, we don't know," Amaro told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

He has not earned it at the plate. Galvis owns a .218 lifetime batting average and hit a mere .176 with a meager .227 on-base percentage last season.

Freddy Galvis explodes for three hits in Tuesday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The first three-hit game for Freddy Galvis since last September pretty much handed the Phillies a victory Tuesday night against Pittsburgh.

Galvis fell a triple short of the cycle. He blasted a solo home run in the fifth inning and scored three runs, including the game-winner in the seventh inning. He raised his batting average from .085 to a less-disturbing .129 and even recorded his first stolen base of the season.
