Freddy Galvis has Been a Bright Spot for Phillies in Early Going
His .345 batting average leads the club, his eight RBI rank him second on the team. ESPN.com senior baseball writer Jayson Stark joined me on the Sports Bash and discussed how Galvis has improved at the plate.
"Galvis has really remade his swing," Stark explained. "He took to heart the Larry Bowa advice, using a bigger bat, shorten his stroke and you can see that. "It's obvious he has great baseball instincts and your seeing them on the offensive side of the ball. His swing is much shorter, he's leading the team in hitting - you never would have seen that coming."
However, it's not only the fact that he leads the team in hitting, his gold glove play at shortstop has people taking notice.
