If Freddy Galvis could, he’d hit the reset button on 2014. First, he contracted MRSA during spring training. Between April 11 and May 8 with the Phillies, Galvis had just two hits and three walks in 46 plate appearances, resulting in his demotion to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. And now even more bad news.

Via Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News:

Meanwhile, at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Freddy Galvis suffered a fractured left clavicle. Another tough break, literally, for Galvis.

Jeff Schuler of the Morning Call tweeted earlier that Galvis had slid into a wall trying to catch a foul ball during Sunday afternoon’s game against the Gwinnett Braves.

Galvis had been demoted as a result of his poor offensive showing at the plate. As a result, the Phillies called up Reid Brignac to fill the club’s utility infielder position. Cesar Hernandez, who was learning third base with Double-A Reading, could be a promotion candidate soon, given his .355/.430/.505 slash line in 107 plate appearances.
