Reds' Freddy Galvis: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis will sit Tuesday against the Brewers.

Galvis looked to be potentially reclaiming the starting shortstop role, getting the nod in the Reds' last two games. He'll sit in this one, with Kyle Farmer starting in his place.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Making second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis will start at shortstop and will bat eighth Monday against the Brewers.

Galvis will be rewarded with a second straight start after he reached base during all four of his plate appearances in Sunday's 7-3 win over the White Sox. The veteran has turned in a modest .705 OPS on the season, but that's still 280 points better than rookie Jose Garcia, who has been serving as Cincinnati's top shortstop for much of September. With the 27-27 Reds still looking to lock down a playoff spot, manager David Bell could favor the more experienced Galvis over Garcia during the final week of the regular season.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis will return to the bench for the first game of Monday's doubleheader versus the Pirates.

With Mike Moustakas ready to handle second base again after sitting out two games over the weekend due to a foot injury, Galvis will retreat to the bench following three consecutive starts at the keystone. He'll remain the top backup at second base, but Galvis' best path to playing time the rest of the way may come at shortstop, where struggling rookie Jose Garcia's hold on the starting gig could be loosening.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The 30-year-old started the previous five games before taking a seat for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader, and he'll remain on the bench Sunday. Jose Garcia has taken over as the Reds' primary shortstop, leaving Galvis to operate in more of a reserve role between shortstop and the keystone.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Takes seat for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Galvis started the past five games and went 0-for-3 during the matinee. Kyle Farmer will start at the keystone in the nightcap for the Reds.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Moving to second base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis remains in the Reds' starting lineup Wednesday against the Brewers despite the call-up of Jose Garcia, albeit at second base, batting sixth.

With the Reds' juggling of their lineup Wednesday, Joey Votto is getting the day off, with Mike Moustakas moving over to first base. Long-term it's a good bet that Galvis will lose some playing time with Garcia's promotion.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Rare day off Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis is not in Monday's lineup against the Brewers.

This is his first day off since Aug. 11. He is hitting .226/.273/.548 with three home runs and a 6:1 K:BB in 31 at-bats over those nine straight starts. Kyle Farmer will start at shortstop and bat ninth.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk during Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

Galvis went deep with his fifth long ball of the season, this time off Adam Wainwright in the third inning. The 30-year-old is hitting .246/.329/.523 with 10 RBI and 10 runs scored so far this year.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against the Pirates.

Galvis homered for the second consecutive game, taking Sam Howard deep in the seventh inning. He now has four home runs on the season, and is currently riding a four-game hitting streak. After a slow start to the campaign, Galvis has rebounded to bump his line to .250/.339./519 across 59 plate appearances.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Blasts third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Royals.

Galvis slugged one of three seventh-inning home runs for the Reds, who also had Jesse Winker and Josh VanMeter go yard to cut the team's deficit to one run. The long ball was Galvis' first extra-base hit in seven games, but any power production the Reds receive from the veteran this season will be viewed as a bonus. Cincinnati values Galvis mainly for his reliable glove at shortstop, where he'll start Thursday in the series opener versus the Pirates.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis is not starting Tuesday against the Royals.

Galvis hits the bench for just the third time in the season's first 17 games. Kyle Farmer takes over at shortstop.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Takes seat Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis is out of the lineup Friday against the Brewers.

Galvis is 2-for-15 over his past six games and will head to the bench with southpaw Eric Lauer pitching for Milwaukee. Kyle Farmer will take over at shortstop in the series opener.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Not starting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis isn't in the lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

Galvis started in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader, going 1-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout while scoring a run. In the second game, Kyle Farmer will start at shortstop and bat ninth.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Records second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Cubs.

Galvis took Ryan Tepera deep in the ninth inning, his second homer of the season. He's gotten off to a quick start this campaign, recording three total extra-base hits and collecting at least one hit in four of his five contests.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: On board with first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run homer in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Tigers.

With the amount of talent at the shortstop position, it's easy to overlook Galvis, but Galvis is coming off a career-high 23 homers and already has his first of 2020. He's expected to play nearly every day for Cincinnati and is a capable fill-in if you need a replacement at the middle-infield spot.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Working with Jose Garcia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis has been working often with Reds shortstop prospect Jose Garcia, particularly on defense, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

This isn't so much a fantasy note but one that reveals that Galvis has a reputation as a great teammate, helping out younger players that may eventually take his job. He did the same in Toronto for Bo Bichette. Galvis will still be the starter for the Reds this year and it's unlikely that Garcia will get much if any action this season, but it's also noteworthy that there's not an obvious backup shortstop on the Reds' roster.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Back to full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager David Bell said Galvis (shoulder/quad) is fully healthy, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Galvis battled multiple injuries during the exhibition season but has now returned to full health. Prior to the delay in spring training, Galvis was set to return to play the infield, so he should be able to take the field when games resume.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Ready to play infield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis (quadriceps/shoulder) was listed as the Reds' starting shortstop and No. 5 hitter for Thursday's Cactus League game against the Mariners, which has since been cancelled on account of rain, Mark Sheldon of reports.

Galvis will have to wait until at least Friday to see his first start of spring training in the field, as his previous three appearances during the Reds' Cactus League have come as a designated hitter while he's contended with quad and shoulder injuries. The Reds' decision to include him at shortstop seemingly suggests that Galvis is reasonably healthy again, so he remains on track to be ready for Opening Day.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Could return soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis (shoulder/quad) will return to action as a designated hitter either Monday or Tuesday, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Meanwhile, he has been cleared to throw and could return to action in the field soon as well, likely after the Reds' off-day on Wednesday.

Reds' Freddy Galvis: Not worried about injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galvis (shoulder/quadriceps) was able to do some hitting and throwing Thursday, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Galvis has been limited to designated-hitter duties thus far in spring training due to a sore shoulder, but that injury appears to be a secondary concern at this point. Instead, the left quadriceps strain Galvis picked up Wednesday is his main worry, though the veteran infielder said the injury is "not that bad." His ability to complete an on-field workout a day after suffering the injury is encouraging, but Galvis will still need to resume running without incident before re-entering the Reds' spring lineup.
