Galvis hit .220/.308/.404 in 159 plate appearances for the Reds this season and declined defensively, frequently getting replaced in the field late in games, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. He'll be a free agent this offseason.
The Reds had the lowest WAR (-0.8) of all shortstops in baseball and are likely to look elsewhere next season after Galvis underperformed as a stopgap option. Jose Garcia and Kyle Farmer are remaining on the Reds' big-league roster, and they don't have much help on the way in their farm system.
Galvis is not in Wednesday's Game 1 lineup against Atlanta.
Kyle Farmer, who is a career .291/.336/.425 hitter against lefties, will start at shortstop and bat eighth with Max Fried on the hill for Atlanta. Galvis could be used as a defensive replacement.
Galvis is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.
Galvis has picked it up a little bit, but he's sitting Sunday in favor of Jose Garcia with lefty Rich Hill toeing the rubber for Minnesota. The switch-hitting Galvis has a .664 OPS against left-handed pitching for his career, and this platoon setup will likely continue into the postseason.
Galvis went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and one run scored in Friday's 7-2 win over the Twins.
He pulled a fastball from Jose Berrios just over the right-field wall for his seventh home run of the season. Galvis has taken a step back after his strong 2019 campaign and briefly lost the starting job at shortstop to Jose Garcia. However, Friday's start at short was Galvis' fourth in the Reds' last five games.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
