After a stellar defensive season, and a surprising showing of pop, Freddy Galvis will not only be back with the team next year, but will be in line for a pay increase.

Freddy Galvis is carving out a role for himself in the majors. Flaws aside (OBP, K’s), Galvis has become a leader on the field for the Phillies.

Galvis, who made just over $2 million in 2016, will be in line for a nice pay-day.

  • Defenders like Galvis don’t grow on trees. Add in his surprising 20 HR, 67 RBI, and 17 SB – and he’ll have a legitimate case to at least double his salary at worst.

    Whether or not Freddy is a core piece to the clubs rebuild moving forward remains to be seen. With the incoming J.P Crawford (SS, teams top prospect), Galvis has had to prove his worth, and he’s proven at least he’s a real big league player.

    While Galvis can still make improvements to his game, he’s running out of potential to hang on. 2017 is going to be key for Galvis, can he improve on his offensive flaws?

    There’s no doubt his flaws come from his love with the long ball. And if Galvis can just take that part of his approach out of his game, and focus on putting the ball in play more, than he’ll his future in Philadelphia carved out in front of him.
