Freddy Galvis, who was a lock to the make the Opening Day roster as a utility infielder, is in the hospital with a staph infection. He had an abscess removed from his left knee earlier this week. He is expected to open the season on the disabled list.

This comes after the loss of Darin Ruf, which means that the Phillies top two bench options are now off the table for the opener.
