Rough week for the Fightin’ Phils, who were riding high (relative) with a slightly-over-.500 start. They dropped four consecutive games to the Blue Jays – two at home and two on the road – to fall to 15-18, good for… carry the .002 OBP… last in the NL East.
May 5: Lost 3-0
May 6: Lost 6-5
May 7: Lost 10-0
May 8: Lost 12-6
That’s a combined score of 31-11 with Kendrick, Hamels, Lee and Burnett pitching. Ew.
And last night they sent down Freddy Galvis, who is batting .048 with a .109 on-base percentage and .048 slugging percentage. To put that in context, Lee, a pitcher who is 3-for-14, is hitting .214/.214/.214.
The Phillies optioned infielder Freddy Galvis to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following Thursday’s game. Galvis went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in the game, but is just 2-for-42 in 16 games this season.
Among the 386 major league players with at least 25 plate appearances, Galvis ranks last in the major leagues in hitting (.048), OBP (.109) and OPS (.156).
