The Philadelphia Phillies are finalizing a deal to send shortstop Freddy Galvis to the San Diego Padres, according to Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports. Galvis, 28, is off one of his better seasons. The infielder slashed .255/.309/.382 with 12 homers, a single-season career-high 29 doubles, 61 RBIs and a 1.3 WAR over a full, 162-game regular-season schedule. Galvis has played in 151 or more games each of the past three seasons after playing in 70 or fewer each of his first three major league campaigns. Galvis signed a contract with the Phillies at the tender age of 16. He debuted in 2012. The infielder is a career .245 hitter with 52 homers, 233 RBIs, 43 stolen bases and a 3.0 WAR.
