Galvis is starting at third base and batting sixth Friday against the Mets, marking his fourth start in the past five games. Galvis has a .286/.359/.686 slash line with four homers, two doubles, six RBI and eight runs through 12 games in September, and he appears to have usurped Ronald Torreyes as the Phillies' primary third baseman. Galvis should remain a lineup regular down the stretch, especially if he continues to maintain a hot bat.
Galvis went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Cubs. The 31-year-old went yard off of Alec Mills in the fourth inning, scoring Andrew McCutchen in the process. It was his 13th blast of the year. Since the start of the month, he has four homers and six RBI in 32 at-bats.
Galvis is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers. Galvis started at three different infield spots -- second base, third base and shortstop -- across each of the past three contests, finishing 2-for-9 with two home runs, three RBI and three runs. His versatility and switch-hitting ability should afford him a handful of starts per week the rest of the season, but Galvis isn't expected to play on an everyday basis while all of Jean Segura, Ronald Torreyes and Didi Gregorius are healthy.
Galvis went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, an additional run scored and a walk in Sunday's win over the Marlins. Galvis blasted his 11th homer of the season with a two-run bomb off starter Elieser Hernandez in the fourth inning, but he also crossed home plate in extras when he scored the winning run following an RBI single from Odubel Herrera. The second baseman is only hitting .246 with a .718 OPS on the season, but he's gone 4-for-12 (.333) with two homers, three RBI, a double and four runs scored in four September games.
Galvis (quadriceps) was reinstated from the injured list Tuesday. Galvis is ready to go after missing just shy of two months with a strained quadriceps. He's not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays and is likely to serve as primarily a utility man down the stretch. When he gets into a game, it will be his first in a Phillies uniform since the end of the 2017 season but his 643rd overall, as he spent his first six major-league seasons with the team. Enyel De Los Santos, whom the Phillies acquired for Galvis in a trade with the Padres back in December of 2017, was optioned to clear a spot for him on the roster.
