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.
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 MLB.com 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.
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.
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.
Galvis (shoulder) underwent an MRI on his left quadriceps Wednesday, though the severity of the injury remains unclear, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The 30-year-old was removed from Wednesday's Cactus League lineup with left quadriceps tightness, and he was already set to be limited to serving as a designated hitter due to a sore shoulder. Manager David Bell said, "It was just a quad strain during a baserunning drill. Hopefully, it's minor." Galvis' status figures to be updated within the next couple of days.
Galvis (shoulder) was removed from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs with a tight left quadriceps, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Galvis was already limited to designated hitter duty due to a sore shoulder. The fact that he'd been at least able to hit despite that issue suggested he'd have time to be ready by Opening Day, but adding a second injury to the mix certainly complicates things. His expected return date has not yet been announced.
Galvis (shoulder) returned to game action Saturday as a DH, going 1-for-1 with two walks. He'll continue as a DH every other day for three games, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Galvis was also able to take ground balls and throw in morning drills. If he continues to ramp up at this pace he should be ready for the start of the season.
Galvis (shoulder) could return to game action next week, after the Reds' off-day on Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "It will be real quick after the first off-day [on Tuesday]," manager David Bell said. "He'll be back playing in games, which will allow plenty of time, especially for a player with experience like he has. He has time."
Galvis not only has time, but also has the benefit of not having a true competitor for the starting shortstop role. Prospect Jose Garcia homered twice on Tuesday and could come on quickly with a great start to his minor-league season, but he's still very likely to begin the year at Double-A.
Galvis has a sore shoulder and won't play in spring training games for a few days, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Manager David Bell said the veteran infielder has been examined and the shoulder checked out fine, so "he's just a few days behind" entering spring ball. Galvis has still been participating in batting practice and fielding drills, minus any long-distance throws. Kyle Farmer and Alex Blandino will see increased work at shortstop for the Reds in the meantime.
Galvis, who has a career .291 on-base percentage and had a 4.8 walk percentage last season, wants to improve his on-base skills this season, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "If there's one thing I need to work on, it's to be on base a little bit more and cut down on strikeouts," said Galvis. "I will try to be on base more for the other guys. It's something I'm focused on for the days I've been here. That's the plan at Spring Training."
That's all well and good, but if it was as simple as wanting to be on base more often, Galvis would have improved his OBP long ago. He's likely to bat seventh or eighth so long as he's the Reds starting shortstop. The Reds don't have a ready replacement in the wings for Galvis, so he's likely to be in there so long as they don't upgrade their options via trade.
With the Reds missing out on Didi Gregorius, Galvis is in line to be their starting shortstop, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. The Reds exercised their one-year, $5.5 million club option on Galvis at the start of the offseason.
There isn't much in the way of available offensive upgrades at shortstop on the free-agent market, so the only obvious avenue for improving over Galvis would be via trade. "We'll be very open-minded, but we feel good enough about him that we exercised that option for a reason," Reds president of baseball operations Dick Williams said. "We've got him there. He's an everyday player at an important position. We feel like that provides us with a good floor. Then we can be opportunistic from there."
Galvis' $5.5 million option in his contract for 2020 was picked up by the Reds on Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
The 29-year-old had a career-high .734 OPS with 23 home runs and 70 RBI, and he'll return to Cincinnati next season. He has some struggles in getting on base, but he could have fantasy value next year if he maintains his power numbers.
Galvis (knee) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Pirates.
He was unable to return before the end of the season after suffering a knee injury Sept. 14. The Reds have a team option to retain Galvis for $5.5 million next year or can buy him out for $1 million.

Galvis (knee) is not in Thursday's lineup against the Brewers.
He has been out since Sept. 14, and with just three games left after this one, it's quite possible we won't see Galvis again this season. Jose Iglesias starts at shortstop and will hit sixth.
Galvis (knee/illness) is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Brewers.
Galvis, who hasn't played since Sept. 14, will remain on the bench for at least one more game as he continues to battle a knee injury along with an illness. Jose Peraza is once again starting at the keystone in his place, hitting eighth.
Galvis (knee/illness) remains on the bench Tuesday against the Brewers.
Galvis hasn't played in 10 days while dealing with a knee injury and an illness. The illness appears to be the primary problem at this point and will prevent him from appearing off the bench, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. Jose Peraza will be the second baseman Tuesday.
Galvis (knee/illness) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets.

Galvis (knee) was sent home Saturday with flu-like symptoms, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
