It will be at least a year and $ 5 million with Canadians
José Luis López | CARACAS Freddy Galvis she got a new home, just a few hours after interrupting conversations with her Pirates from PittsburghAt the end of Tuesday morning, Toronto Blue Jays announced the signing of a shortstop in a one-year contract, which includes a club option for 2020. They reported various sources.
Galvis gets a $ 5 million guarantee. This includes a $ 4 million salary for the next season and a $ 1 million purchase in the 2020 option, which can instead earn $ 5.5 million.
Right Danny Barnes was placed on the task of opening space for the Venezuelan on the 40th Canadian club list.
The 29-year-old Galvis has recorded a lot of short records during the last campaigns for clubs that have no chance of progressing in post-season. In fact, he appeared in 162 games in 2017 with Philadelphia Phillies and repeated the recipe in 2018 with San Diego Padres.
By the weekend it was the Pirate's goal after a conversation about returning to San Diego that apparently failed in November last year.
Galvis will now join the Toronto club, which seems to have no hope of conflict. But he is interested in strengthening his situation within the framework. It remains to know if he will have a title role.
Golden glove … No crown
Freddy Galvis showed a good attack in the 2018 season, which was reflected on line .248 / .299 / .380 with 13 homers. This is not an exaggeration if compared to its life span of .246 / .290 / .374. He is a respected and committed professional, and his advantage is that he is in the game with a dose of power and speed. His glove work is his basic tool. This is for sure because only 24 errors have been assigned to the last three campaigns. It will probably not hurt to have experience elsewhere. He has already played in the left field, in the middle and in the forward … Toronto can experiment.
