Phillies infielder Freddy Galvis is currently being hospitalized with a staph infection in his leg, the team announced. He will open the regular season on the DL.
Galvis, 24, was slated to be the team’s utility infielder. He is a career .230/.269/.375 (74 OPS+) hitter with nine home runs in 128 big league games over the last two seasons, but he’ll be on the roster for his slick glovework, not his bat.
