Ryne Sandberg believes Freddy Galvis will make team out of spring training


Philadelphia Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg believes that infielder Freddy Galvis will earn a spot on the teams Opening Day roster.

Galvis, 22, has put together just a .230/.269/.375 line over 128 games between 2012 and 2013. His ability to play across the infield and the outfield makes him an asset according to Sandberg in an interview with MLB.com.

“I give Freddy Galvis a little nod because of his ability to play short and second base and third base, left field and what he does defensively. Once we get rolling, I could see him playing twice a week and giving some guys some blows. I think that is a part of keeping the veteran guys healthy. I think he’s a vital piece off the bench.”
