Wait what the I don't...
BREAKING: Phillies 2B Freddy Galvis suspended 50 games after testing positive for a banned substance.— MLB (@MLB) June 19, 2012
Galvis tested positive for a metabolite of Clostebol, a performance-enhancing substance.— Todd Zolecki (@ToddZolecki) June 19, 2012
Todd Zolecki and MLB with the scoop. Presumably the suspension runs concurrent with projected time on the disabled list due to a fractured back, likely to keep him out for around 50 games anyway.
Personally, I'm shattered. Freddy Galvis will never get my Hall of Fame vote now!
Galvis, 22, had posted a .226/.254/.363 line in 200 plate appearances, with three home runs and 15 doubles, contributing sparkling defense, primarily at second base in place of the injured Chase Utley. It will be interesting to see what happens to Galvis' "fan favorite" status in light of this news.
More on this as it develops.
