Play of the Day: Freddy Galvis makes superb diving grab and throw for the out

8 Comments

Replacing Jimmy Rollins is no easy feat. Freddy Galvis, though, has done a decent job in the early going for the Phillies. Along with regularly elite defense, Galvis came into Saturday night’s game against the Braves with an .855 OPS.

Galvis shone with the glove in the fifth inning on Saturday night, robbing Nick Markakis of a hit with both a nice diving grab and a strong off-balance throw to first base. Galvis injured his shoulder in the process, but thankfully the inning was over and he had some time to recuperate. He didn’t need to come out of the game.

Watch the play below:

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
