So that should help his struggles at the plate.
Galvis suffered the injury in the sixth inning, when he collided with IronPigs third baseman Maikel Franco as both converged on a foul ball down the third-base line. Galvis slid in an attempt to make the catch and Franco’s right knee hit the shortstop’s left shoulder as the ball dropped into foul territory.
It’s the latest bad break for Galvis. He began the season on the disabled list after suffering a MRSA infection at the end of spring training. Two years ago, he missed the final 3 1/2 months of the season after suffering a pars fracture in his back; he also served a 50-game suspension for a failed drug test related to PED use in 2012.

Galvis will reportedly be out 6-8 weeks.
