PITTSBURGH (AP) — Freddy Galvis is back with the Philadelphia Phillies, returning to the franchise where he started his career in a trade with the Baltimore Orioles on Friday.
The Orioles acquired minor league right-hander Tyler Burch from the Phillies for Galvis and cash.
The 31-year-old Galvis has been Baltimore’s starting shortstop for most of the season. He’s batting .249 with nine homers and 26 RBIs in 72 games and is currently on the 10-day injured list with a right quadriceps strain.
Galvis is a career .247 hitter in 10 major league seasons, the first six with Philadelphia.
