The injuries just keep piling up for the Philadelphia Phillies this season. Is there no end in sight?
Freddy Galvis strained his back last night in the middle of a decent at-bat and pulled himself out of the game, unable to continue any further during the asme at-bat. It was a painfully frustrating, and all too familiar feeling for Phillies fans watching as the home team dropped their fifth straight game, and third to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Freddy Galvis to the disabled list with a lower back strain – ouch!!

Oof. Losing Galvis’ glove at second base is more of a concern than anything he would bring to the plate. Look for Mike Fontenot to take over second base duties in the meantime.
Consider me surprised that the injury news was not worse last night. Watching Hunter Pence crash in to the outfield fence awkwardly, dropping his glove and giving care ot his left arm or wrist had me thinking that Domonic Brown would be getting a call to come up today, but that does not appear to be the case. Pence stayed in the game following his scary moment in the outfield.
Cole Hamels will look to salvage one game in this series Thursday afternoon.
