If the Phillies didn't sign Jimmy Rollins to a three-year deal, Galvis would not be on this list. In fact, he would be the Phils starting short stop come opening day.
Galvis is without a doubt MLB ready on the defensive side. However, his offense is not quite there yet, according to TTF Baseball. But it was reported that the Phillies were going to accept the decline in offense in order to have Galvis as the starting short stop.
All that being said, it will be at least three years before Galvis sniffs the MLB with the Phillies (unless J-Roll continues to get injured). In an interview with CSN Phillies insider Jim Salisbury, Ruben Amaro Jr. said that Galvis will most likely be playing in the MLB within the next couple years.
He said that after signing Rollins, so is that foreshadowing into the future? Is Ruben hinting that the Phils will be trading Galvis sooner rather than later?
Take it as you may, but Galvis is definitely now the most sought after player in the Phillies organization, and if he continues his rapid improvement, he could be traded to a team where he will have a shot at competing to be an everyday short stop.
