Phillies, Galvis Avoid Arbitration
The Philadelphia Phillies and SS Freddy Galvis have agreed on a one-year contract, according to a report.
The one-year deal avoids arbitration.
Per Todd Zolecki, the agreement is worth $2 million.
This has been the norm for a player like Galvis, his career has entirely been multiple one-year deals with the club, but $2 million can be considered a nice pay raise for the infielder.
Galvis, 26, saw the most playing time of his career in 2015 filling in at shortstop after the departure of Jimmy Rollins to the Dodgers.
Galvis also can mostly play all infield positions which has been serviceable for the Phillies with the departures of Rollins, Chase Utley and an injury to Maikel Franco.
Galvis finished the season batting .263, adding in 50 RBI and 10 stolen bases.
