Galvis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run Monday in the Reds' 3-2 loss to the Padres. The long ball was Galvis' 20th of the season, matching the career-high total he posted with the Phillies in 2016. Galvis will likely have ample opportunities over the final five-plus weeks of the season to establish a new personal best in the category, as Joey Votto's (back) recent move to the injured list should clear a regular role in the infield for the veteran. Galvis will bat second and occupy the keystone Tuesday in what marks his seventh consecutive start.
Galvis was a late addition to Monday's lineup against the Padres. He starts at second base and will hit seventh. Nick Senzel (sore elbow) was scratched, so Phillip Ervin shifts to center field, Jose Peraza shifts to left field and Galvis enters at the keystone.
Galvis is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres. Galvis hits from both sides of the dish, but he's been slightly more effective versus right-handers (.293 career wOBA) than lefties (.284). As such, he'll duck out of the lineup with southpaw Eric Lauer on the mound for San Diego, but Galvis looks like he'll be in line for steady action against right-handed pitching for the foreseeable future. Galvis started each of the previous five games and should be the Reds' main option at the keystone while Josh VanMeter shifts over to first base in the wake of Joey Votto's (back) move to the injured list.
Galvis went 4-for-5 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 17-7 loss to the Nationals. After collecting a hit off the bench in his Cincy debut Tuesday, the 29-year-old put together a huge performance in his first start as a Red. Galvis now has 19 homers on the season, leaving him one shy of the career high he set in 2016.
Galvis is starting at second base and batting sixth in Wednesday's afternoon game against the Nats. This is Galvis's first start since getting claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays. To make room for Galvis in the lineup, Josh VanMeter moved to left field, Jesse Winker moved to center field and Nick Senzel got the day off. A combination of Senzel, Winker and VanMeter all figure to play a little less often with Galvis aboard.
