Prospects Plus: Freddy Galvis

In our continuing series on top prospects in baseball, the OTWT scouting staffs breaks down the game of Phillies second baseman Freddy Galvis. The group saw him play on Saturday against the Mets.

Stat line Saturday against the Mets: 1 for 3 with a strikeout. Video of his only hit is below.

Positives: Galvis has been in the Phillies system since he was 16-years old. The first thing that you notice is that his glove is already at all star levels. According to Baseball American, Galvis has "incredible instincts" on defense. Galvis was the 6th ranked prospect in the Phillies system at the start of the year.
Negatives: The biggest is his bat. As a major league he has struggled with the bat and his minor league numbers show that is going to continue. During his minor league career he hit only .246. There is some debate on if Galvis will be a full time player. According to Baseball America: "Most scouts think his defensive wizardry will make him an everyday player, but some think he's no more than a second division regular." Not exactly the biggest endorsement.
