Reds' Freddy Galvis: Reaches 20 homers Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Late add to Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Sitting against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Swats first homer as Red
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Starting at second base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Lands with Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds claimed Galvis off waivers from the Blue Jays on Monday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Galvis represents the Reds' second notable veteran addition via the waiver wire in the past weekend, following in the footsteps of pitcher Kevin Gausman. The arrival of shortstop prospect Bo Bichette -- as well as the Jays' status as a non-contender -- made Galvis an expendable piece in Toronto, but he won't necessary see a major boost in his playing-time outlook as he heads to Cincinnati. Galvis isn't a lock to unseat Jose Iglesias as the team's everyday shortstop and could more realistically compete for work at the keystone with the likes of Josh VanMeter and Jose Peraza.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Dons rare platinum sombrero
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 0-for-5 with five strikeouts Tuesday in the Blue Jays' 7-6 loss to the Rays.

The performance was highly uncharacteristic for Galvis, who maintains a relatively palatable 23.8 percent strikeout rate on the season. He'll get an immediate rebound opportunity while sticking in the lineup at second base and batting second in Wednesday's matinee, but Galvis' hold on a full-time role is no longer as strong as it once was following the recent promotion of top middle-infield prospect Bo Bichette.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Sits Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.

Galvis ultimately stayed in Toronto in the aftermath of Wednesday's trade deadline, but he could be at risk of seeing his role decline to some extent over the final two months of the season, especially now that top prospect Bo Bichette has been installed as the team's everyday shortstop. He'll still have a path to playing time at second base or designated hitter, with one of Galvis, Cavan Biggio and Brandon Drury typically fighting for those two lineup spots in any given game.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Slugs 17th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 3-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 5-2 win over the Orioles.

Getting the start at second base, Galvis went yard for the second time in the last three games and the 17th time this season. The 29-year-old seems to have inherited the super-utility role Eric Sogard held before being traded to the Rays, so even though top prospect Bo Bichette is now the Jays' starting shortstop, Galvis and his .269/.303/.446 slash line should still see consistent at-bats.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Returns as designated hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis (back) will bat second as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Royals, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Galvis was scratched from Monday's lineup due to lower-back tightness. He's seemingly feeling well enough to hit but not take the field, though there's no guarantee he would have started at shortstop now that Bo Bichette is in town.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Should return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis (back) is expected to play Tuesday against the Royals, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Galvis was removed from the starting nine prior to Monday's clash due to lower-back tightness, but manager Charlie Montoyo is confident the 29-year-old will be ready to roll for the second game of the series. His status figures to be updated closer to first pitch.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Nursing back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Royals due to lower-back tightness, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Galvis will be considered day-to-day until further notice. Cavan Biggio is starting at the keystone and leading off after Galvis was a late scratch from the starting nine.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Late scratch Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Royals due to an undisclosed injury, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Galvis was initially penciled into the lineup at second base, but the Blue Jays have since announced that he won't be available to play. The team has yet to announce the location and extent of the injury.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Bangs out three hits Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's win over the Tigers.

It was the shortstop's sixth multi-hit performance in July, and he's now slashing .333/.359/.583 with three homers and nine RBI over 15 games this month. Despite his own success this season, Galvis is feeling the heat behind him with Bo Bichette on fire for Triple-A Buffalo, which could make the veteran a trade target for a contender looking for infield depth.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Extends hot streak with 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and a double in a loss to Boston on Thursday.

Galvis cleared the left field fence in the fourth inning to give Toronto a 6-1 lead that they would eventually relinquish. The two-hit game continued a hot start to the month in which Galvis has hit 9-for-16 (.563) with three home runs and six runs batted in. Overall, he is slashing .273/.311/.470 with 15 home runs and 44 RBI in his first season with Toronto.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Slugs two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in an 11-4 victory against the Royals on Monday.

The 29-year-old hasn't sparkled in the average department, and he barely walks at all (.302 on-base percentage), but behind 30 extra-base hits, including now 14 homers, Galvis does possess a .189 ISO. The 3-for-4 afternoon also snapped an 0-for-9 stretch. Overall, he is batting .264 with a .453 slugging percentage, 40 RBI, 39 runs and three steals in 307 at-bats this season.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Mashes 12th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 2-for-5 with a double, a grand slam and a stolen base in Monday's 10-8 loss to the Yankees.

His eighth-inning blast off Jonathan Holder made things interesting, but the Jays were unable to complete the comeback from a 10-2 deficit. Galvis now has 12 homers and three steals on the year to go with a .264/.303/.444 slash line.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Registers 32nd RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Friday's game against the Red Sox.

Galvis knocked home a pair of runs in the first inning, getting his team on the board first. The 29-year-old has been heating up at the plate of late, raising his batting average by 20 points over his last 11 games. He's slashing .261/.297/.423 with 10 homers and 32 RBI over 71 contests.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Cranks three-run shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer in Sunday's 12-0 victory over Houston.

Galvis' homer in the sixth inning off Cionel Perez gave Toronto a 7-0 lead. The 5-foot-10 infielder is swinging a hot bat right now, collecting multiple hits in three straight games. With his 10th long ball of the year, Galvis is on pace for his first 20-homer campaign since 2016.

Blue Jays' Freddy Galvis: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis is not in Saturday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

He is hitting .103 with 11 strikeouts over his last 10 games. Brandon Drury will start at shortstop and hit eighth.
