RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Galvis opened last season with the Phillies in a reserve role, but was sent to the minors in June when it was clear he was not getting enough playing time. Galvis makes decent contact with the bat, but he has a poor eye at the plate and his strikeout rate is too high for a player with minimal power. He has a little speed, but it has not been put to use in his stints in the majors. Galvis' calling card is his top notch defense. He has proven he can play second, third and short in the majors as well as left field. It is a good sign, because he profiles best as a utility infielder, though he could also start at short for a club that wants to focus on defense from the position. Galvis is still young enough to make some improvements at the plate, but there are no signs that a breakout is coming. Subsequently, there are better endgame investments.

2013

Galvis got a surprise opportunity with the Phillies last season with Chase Utley sidelined for the first three months. Galvis' defense was as advertised. He made the move to second with little problem and was one of the best defenders in the league at the position. Unfortunately, he was also one of the worst regulars at the plate. With just over 100 career at-bats at Triple-A there is no doubt Galvis was being rushed in his development last year. He's just 23 years old and his bat had been showing some signs of improvement in the minors, so all is not lost with Galvis at the plate. That said, he doesn't ever figure to hit for power and he also doesn't steal a lot of bases, making his upside at the plate quite limited. A fractured back ended his season prematurely and he tested positive for performance-enhancing substances in June. Galvis returned to action over the winter, playing in his native Venezuela. He may get an opportunity to win a job as the Phillies' third baseman this spring if the team does not bring in a free agent option.

2012

Galvis improved significantly last season, hitting a combined .278/.324/.392 with eight home runs and 23 stolen bases between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He had been considered an all-glove prospect when the season began and now he has shown signs of being something more than that. The offensive numbers aren't overwhelming, but if Galvis can hit around .260 in the majors, his glove is going to keep him in the big leagues for a long time. He will likely open this year back at Triple-A but he could see time in the majors later in the year. He'll need to continue improving with the bat to be of any interest to fantasy owners, however.

2011

Galvis spent his age 20 season at Double-A. Typically, playing at such a level at a young age indicates that a prospect has the potential to be something special. Galvis does have the potential to be special, but unfortunately for fantasy leaguers, Galvis is going to be special with his glove and probably never will be special with his bat. He struggled to stay above the Mendoza line last year and his .222 OBP was horrendous. There certainly is time for Galvis to figure things out with the bat, but expectations for that happening are low. His defense is considered major league ready and the Phillies have added him to their 40-man roster with an eye toward having Galvis fill a utility role in a few years. He's expected to open 2011 back at Double-A.
