Phillies avoid arbitration with shortstop Freddy Galvis

The Phillies and shortstop Freddy Galvis have avoided arbitration agreeing to a one-year deal which will pay the 26-year-old $2 million for the 2016 season.

Galvis hit .263/.302/.343 with seven homers, 50 RBI and 10 steals across 559 at-bats in his first season as a regular.

The numbers of Galvis could see another jump next season as he gets more regular at-bats.

Galvis was one of three Phillies to file for salary arbitration. Right-handed pitchers Jeanmar Gomez and Jeremy Hellickson also filed for arbitration.
