Freddy Galvis Suffers Broken Clavicle
Its been a tough season thus far for Phillies utility man Freddy Galvis.
Galvis started the season on the 15-day disabled list, suffering from a staph infection in his leg during the spring and was later diagnosed with MRSA.
After his return, he struggled - big-time.
Galvis managed just two hits over his first 42 at-bats this season, hitting .048, so the Phillies optioned Galvis to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday. As a result, the Phillies called up Reid Brignac to fill the club’s utility infielder position.
Yesterday Galvis had slid into a wall trying to catch a foul ball during Sunday afternoon’s game against the Gwinnett Braves and broke his left clavicle.
Go back to spring training and Galvis looked like he was going to be managers Ryne Sandberg's guy, mentioning his hustle and work in the field. The feeling was Galvis would be almost an everyday player even if it was at a different position every day.
However, Galvis could never get the bat going and was sent down - and now his season has suffered another setback.
