Galvis in Right?
For the first time this spring, Manuel played Freddy Galvis in right field, a likely sign that the Phillies are trying to figure out how to keep infielder Yuniesky Betancourt, who hit a three-run home run in Saturday’s win.
The deadline for adding Betancourt to the 25-man roster is Sunday. His agent Alex Esteban said Friday Betancourt will ask for his release if he is not added to the roster.
“I just wanted to put him there,” Manuel said. “I put him there because I wanted to see him play it. I watch him in practice every day and he always catches fly balls in practice. I like the way he runs after the ball, so I put him out there and we’ll see.”
Galvis handled the only fly ball hit his way.
This is getting weird. Does this sound like the way a competitive team operates?
