Freddy Galvis Claimed By Reds

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Freddy Galvis was claimed on waivers by the Reds. He was a casualty of roster space with Bo Bichette coming up and getting everyday playing time and the Reds could use him as a second baseman.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

You can expect Freddy Galvis to be a good bench player who will start in certain weeks the rest of the season. His 37.41 projected fantasy points puts him at #45 behind Keston Hiura and ahead of Nick Solak. He has averaged 2.24 fantasy points in his past 295 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.75 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#21) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 45%, he is the #21 most highly owned second baseman. Freddy Galvis is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #10 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 23 AND 24 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Freddy Galvis is projected for 2.58 fantasy points in one game the rest of the week in week 23 which ranks him as the #16 projected second baseman for the week and a starter for most fantasy teams. This is projected to be a slightly below average game with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Ozzie Albies but behind Ryan McMahon the rest of the week. Week 24 will not be as good based on projected rank (#43). He is projected for 9.14 fantasy points.
