When the Phillies re-signed Chase Utley last month, Freddy Galvis questioned his standing in the organization. It was not an irrational thought - the current middle infield is secured through at least 2015. Interim manager Ryne Sandberg advised Galvis that he could control only his performance. Nights like a 4-2 Phillies victory over San Diego on Wednesday demonstrate Galvis' potential value as a utility man in 2014. He swatted a fifth-inning home run into the left-field corner. He slapped a double to begin the seventh and scored the eventual winning run with hustle on a Cesar Hernandez groundout.

The Phillies removed Jayson Nix from the team Monday, the second bench subtraction in less than a week. The timing of the roster shuffle was interesting, since the Phillies lost another infield option Sunday when Freddy Galvis suffered a broken left clavicle during a collision with a teammate in pursuit of a foul ball. Nix was outrighted to triple-A Lehigh Valley. He can elect free agency or accept his minor-league assignment. The team's 40-man roster is at 39. His replacement will be announced Tuesday.

The Phillies' best run output in eight games was still not enough to snap their skid. Their losing streak reached nine, the franchise's longest since 1999, with a 6-4 defeat Wednesday night against the Baltimore Orioles at Citizens Bank Park. Kevin Correia was charged with all six Baltimore runs, although only two were earned. Freddy Galvis' 10th fielding error of the season kick-started the Orioles' crucial four-run fourth inning. "I don't think he's a guy that should have 10 errors at this stage of the game," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The first line on the lineup card posted in the Phillies clubhouse on Saturday morning read, "Revere 7. " Ben Revere, the team's everyday centerfielder the last two years, was being moved to left field for the first time in three seasons. The 26-year-old stayed back from the team's road trip on Friday to practice catching fly balls in the new position. He learned earlier in the morning he would play left and Odubel Herrera would play center Saturday against Toronto.

A TEAM spokesman said Freddy Galvis would not address the past, as in the events that led him to test positive in June for using a performance-enhancing drug. Galvis wasn't too comfortable talking about the future, either, or at least about where he saw himself with the 2013 Phillies. But in his current state, as a rookie infielder recovering from a serious back injury, Galvis was as positive as a young major league player could be at the end of a roller-coaster first season. "It's not disappointing for me," Galvis said of not being able to rejoin the Phils this season.

CHARLIE MANUEL said a mouthful Monday. Well, he didn't actually say much. But what he said carried a deeper meaning than he could express comfortably after a third loss in four games. All three losses wasted acceptable efforts from the Phillies' celebrated starting rotation, around which the team was built. Built, that is, on the cornerstones of All-Stars Chase Utley and Ryan Howard, both of whom are injured. The Phillies have no idea when either will be ready to play, if at all, or how well they will play upon their return.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Freddy Galvis has the unenviable task of replacing Phillies' all-time hits leader Jimmy Rollins as the team's everyday shortstop. The slick-fielding 25-year-old said Sunday he doesn't feel extra pressure because of the act he's following. "Jimmy was Jimmy. Jimmy was the man here in Philadelphia," Galvis said. "But you have to come here and play baseball. That's it. I have to do my game. I don't have to do Jimmy's game. I have to do Freddy Galvis' game and play ball.

ATLANTA - When Elvis Araujo jogged in from the visiting bullpen to the mound at Turner Field on Tuesday night, he was able to shake off some of the big-league butterflies that are natural for anyone in his major league debut. All Araujo had to do was look behind him to see the defense he had up the middle: shortstop Freddy Galvis, second baseman Cesar Hernandez and centerfielder Odubel Herrera. The same Venezuelan trio was back in those positions when Araujo, also Venezuelan, pitched out of the 'pen again on Wednesday.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Ender Inciarte, an athletic outfielder who is short on experience but high on talent, is making an impression on Charlie Manuel. At least better than the first impression the Rule 5 pick had on his new manager. "The first day we practiced I showed up at [4:45 a.m.]," Manuel said following Sunday's 13-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. "And he came in behind me and asked, 'Who do I see about getting a locker?' I said, 'What's your name?' And he told me, and I didn't recognize his name.

REPORTS OF Chase Utley's demise have been exaggerated, but not greatly, and not even moderately. This wasn't only the worst April of his career, but the worst month of his career. At the same time, any talk of rectifying the situation through some means other than letting him play his way out of it is extraordinarily premature. As we have written many times, the Phillies are in a position where they must attempt to maximize the future value of the assets they have in their organizational portfolio, and Utley remains one of those assets.
