Martin, Ruf to Lehigh; Galvis Out 6-8 Weeks

Mitchell Leff

The recently-demoted Freddy Galvis will miss 6-to-8 weeks, as Ethan Martin and Darin Ruf rehab in AAA.

It has not been a good 2014 for Freddy Galvis.

As mentioned yesterday, Galvis injured his shoulder after sliding into wall while trying to catch a foul ball. That comes on the heels of an MSRA bacterial infection that knocked him out of action for over a month this spring and a 2-for-42 start to the season at the plate for the Phillies.

Not only that, Galvis also broke his back in 2012 and was suspended later that year for PED use. You know, we might just have to consider...

So, Galvis will be out for the next six to eight weeks, putting back a possible return to Philadelphia even further for the utility infielder.

In other news, right-handed reliever Ethan Martin and outfielder/first baseman Darin Ruf have been called up to Lehigh Valley to continue their rehab assignments. Both players could be on the fast track to Philadelphia, given the struggles of the bullpen and the bench during the first month and a half of the season.
