Freddy Galvis (3B/SS, PHI) - Waiver Wire Analysis


BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 17% of Fleaflicker Leagues

ANALYSIS: Rockies fans are going to get mad at me at this rate, but the Coors Field effect is hard to ignore. Galvis might not qualify at 3rd base in all formats, but Yahoo owners are going to want to give this player a long hard look this week. Galvis is hitting .347 on the season and .333 during the month of May. Most encouraging of all is his .413 on base percentage, a figure which should translate into a healthy Run scored total for the Phillies number two hitter for as long as he’s able to maintain it. Along with Howard, Galvis will be making his way to Coors Field next week, which is about as close to heaven as you can get for a locked in hitter. If I’m high on Howard right now, it’s almost a given that I love the upside of the runner he’ll be most likely trying to drive in.

The biggest drawback to Galvis is that he doesn’t offer much in terms of power, but if he keeps stealing bases here and there you might be able to forgive this flaw. He makes a lot of sense for an owner looking to plug a gap in 3rd or SS left by an injured star (I see you over there Jose Reyes). Galvis is also a great find for someone just trying to make inroads in batting average or Runs scored. If you fall in either category, give him a look. He’s almost certainly available and based on what he’s done up to this point, he really shouldn’t be.
