News: Galvis said he is not putting any pressure on himself to try to replicate Jimmy Rollins' production, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. "I don't think I have to fill anybody's shoes," Galvis said. "Because I just have to do my game."
Impact: Galvis will enter 2015 as the Phillies' starting shortstop with Rollins now in Los Angeles. He offers excellent defense, but his offensive game has been anemic when given chances at playing time in the past. Galvis likely has just one full year of a starting job at short before top prospect J.P. Crawford starts pushing for his opportunity in the majors in 2016.

News: Galvis projects to be the Phillies' starting shortstop next season with the trade of Jimmy Rollins to the Dodgers, CSN Philly reports.
Impact: Galvis is considered an elite defensive shortstop, but his bat has not developed. It looks like he will get a chance to play regularly this season and prove he can be more than just a utility player.
