I dove into some of the positives and negatives in the linked piece over at Redleg Nation. Free agent-to-be Jose Iglesias has been dealing with a biceps injury, which has left shortstop of late to the struggling Jose Peraza, and the light-hitting Iglesias’ offensive numbers have largely cratered since a decent start over the season’s first couple months. No. So that means 20 teams passed on him….. Weird. I would rather go this route than go after Didi.

There was a $1 million buyout. Atlanta got rid of his salary. [27] He opened the 2018 season as the Padres' starting shortstop, and again played in all 162 games this season. Galvis was born November 14, 1989, in Punto Fijo, Falcón, Venezuela, and at age 14, the Philadelphia Phillies began to scout him during his days playing youth baseball. Bo, Vlad, Biggio, Tellez, the outfielders and Galvis. Wow! I think a package built around India, Lodolo, and Greene could at least get talks started, but I assume that a 4th (probably very good) prospect would need to be included as well. Especially when the other options are Jose Peraza, Freddy Galvis, Jose Igleisas, or Kyle Farmer. Freddy Galvis hits seventh homer in Friday's win. Nobody He made his major league debut on Opening Day of 2012 at second base, substituting for the injured Chase Utley.

Doug Gray is the owner and operator of this website and has been running it since 2006 in one variation or another. I mean be for real who were their competitors for his services at the deadline??? The only problem with paraza is bell. The Reds have the 2nd best positive runs margin in NL Central, They are still within shot of the NL Wildcard in 2019 and are clearly all in for 2020. They still do. Perhaps Galvis will also factor in at second, though he has spent almost all of his career at short since debuting in 2012. I love the move to Sign Galvis. He spent the next several years in their minor league system, including a particularly lengthy stint with the Phillies' Double-A (AA) affiliate the Reading Phillies. The Reds have claimed shortstop Freddy Galvis off waivers from the Blue Jays, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.
You read that correctly – Jose Peraza has walked 1 time in the last 54 games he’s played in. He is eligible for the Post Season for sure. Now, has if he does well in Cincinnati, they can pick him up for a cool $5.5 for next season.

Or is it?

He also earned placement on the league's postseason all-star team. Because if he’s as productive as you say the Blue Jays could have, and should have, traded him two weeks ago. Beginning in 2015, Galvis spent three seasons as the Phillies' starting shortstop.

Being ranked as a top 10 prospect he’s just kind of bla.

It’s not like I expected some big time prospect or something for him, but am I seriously supposed to believe that there wouldn’t have been some team who’d give us a couple of prospects that would be ranked around #25 or so in their system for a guy who has had a nice season, is durable and known as a good leader and has another year of control for a pretty palatable price tag? BTW, fantastic coverage today Doug (yes, you are really good everyday)! He started as INF but moved to OF in Reds MiLB system right away. What would the Tigers possibly gain by picking up Galvis?

Don’t agree with the article on him tailing off. I also want to throw this out there. Also he is only 69 wRC + in the 2nd half. So that narrative can be scratched from the conversation. [3] Entering 2011, he was "considered major-league-ready defensively but a major liability offensively. In 2020, Galvis will earn a base salary of $5,500,000, while carrying a total salary of $5,500,000. At the same time, we support the player.

I like what the Reds are doing
Dietrich can play all over the field and injuries happen so he should still get his at bats. Mike Trout? What would the Tigers gain? [5] Overall with Lehigh Valley, he hit .298, with eight RBIs in 126 plate appearances during 33 games. Freddy Galvis is a proven damn good player. He hit in the leadoff spot with Lehigh Valley as well. There’s an argument to be made right now as to whether Freddy Galvis is better than Jose Iglesias. [14] Correspondingly, the Phillies acquired veteran infielder John McDonald. Jays could have called Atlanta (they wouldn’t. Injuries happen 2. I’m not sure why that has to be a lock. Big if though. VanMeter will get a shot at 2b this and next year.

No spending. I commend the Blue Jays for this. [1] He participated on Latin America's team in the Little League World Series, but due to his slight stature (5 feet 10 inches (1.78 m) 154 pounds (70 kg)), struggled to captivate scouts' attention. Even Drury. But who exactly brought Vladdy, Bichette, Biggio & Guerriel into the organization ?

Talk about unrealistic expectations and instant gratification needed. Another stupid move by SHATKINS that may cause enough of a rift that’ll end up costing them a chance at greatness until it’s time to negotiate the trifectas contract extensions! The team has a different vibe on defense when Iglesias is on the field. he clearly was only ever a gap filler and as many have pointed out already, they need more everyday playing time for Bo Bo and “the Beeg II”. Disclosures. If he would sign again for backup money, I would think the Reds would do it in a heartbeat, but he may be trying for more on the open market. However EVERY team should be making the shrewd moves the Reds have done since beginning of 2019 off season to improve their team and creating a good team. Senzel has has a good rookie year. You can follow him on twitter @dougdirt24, or follow the site on Facebook. Just a normal waiver claim. Great pickup for a playoff push. Doug, how bullish are you on VanMeter and Aquino being the answers for 2B and RF next season? The Reds’ middle infield doesn’t boast the type of promise the Blue Jays’ does, on the other hand. For a glove first shortstop who wasn’t expected to hit, .287 with 8 homers is commendable… and much better than Peraza is hitting. Why would a Gausman trade have any implications? I’m impressed that this franchise is operating in this manner. Bo Bichette.

Nick Castellanos holds an opt-out clause if he wants to join the free … What I hope that the move means is that the days of thinking that Jose Peraza is an every day option are over. This is not a reward. [7][16] He has very little ability as a power hitter, but he has hit several home runs in key situations throughout his career, an anomaly that confounded Baumann, who noted that Galvis's inability "to force his way into the lineup by this point has probably scuttled any chance Galvis has of being the Phillies’ starting shortstop of the future. He was a 93 wRC+ player which isnt good at all.
