CLEARWATER, Fla. - Freddy Galvis thought the Phillies clubhouse was too quiet when he arrived last month at spring training. So Galvis went to a nearby electronics store and purchased an oversize speaker to stash in the empty locker next to his stall. The second baseman plays the role of DJ, controlling the music as the team arrives in the morning or eats lunch before games. "It was something that I tried to do to have a good clubhouse," Galvis said. "I think the music is good for that.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Maikel Franco ended last spring training by packing his equipment into a red duffel bag and walking across the Phillies complex to join the other minor-leaguers. Franco was quiet during his four weeks in big-league camp. He was the team's top prospect. But he was just a kid. A season later, Franco, 23, has emerged to become a large presence in a clubhouse filled with young talent. His personality was evident Friday afternoon as he danced while his teammates ate a pregame meal in the clubhouse.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - David Hernandez entered spring training as the favorite to leave as the Phillies closer. The righthander was the only relief pitcher the team signed this offseason, and his arrival came just three days before the departure of Ken Giles. But the pitcher's effectiveness this season may hinge on the development of a change-up, which is Hernandez's third pitch. The 30-year-old showcased the offering Tuesday as he worked an easy fourth inning in a 5-3 loss to Toronto. Hernandez threw just 12 pitches, mixing the change-up with his fastball and curveball.

The Phillies avoided arbitration with Freddy Galvis by signing him Wednesday to a one-year, $2 million deal, according to multiple reports. Galvis, who made $513,500 in 2015, was arbitration-eligible for the first time in his career. The 26-year-old shortstop is widely viewed as a placeholder for the team's top prospect, J.P. Crawford, who could assume the starting job by 2017. Galvis posted a .645 OPS last season in a career-high 603 plate appearances. The Phillies have two remaining players - Jeremy Hellickson and Jeanmar Gomez - eligible for arbitration.

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- An obvious perk of finishing a season with the worst record in baseball is collecting the No. 1 overall pick in the draft the following June. The Phillies own that distinction and already have sent Pat Gillick to get a look at University of Florida lefthander A.J. Puk in action. They also invited Barnegat, N.J., High lefthander Jason Groome to Citizens Bank Park this week. But another advantage to owning baseball's worst record, something that first-year general manager Matt Klentak made sure to mention in his introductory news conference last month: The Phillies also have the largest international bonus pool at their disposal for next summer's signing period.

The two-seam fastball from Phillies righthander Justin De Fratus dashed inside, forcing Yoenis Cespedes to check his swing and causing an entire franchise to hold its breath. Cespedes, the outfielder who brought life to the New York Mets, was hit in the hand Wednesday night by De Fratus' 89-m.p.h. fastball in the third inning at Citizens Bank Park. He collapsed to the ground almost instantly, grabbing his hand as a team trainer rushed to his aid. Cespedes was removed from the game, but the incident may have appeared worse than it really was. The Mets announced that X-ray results were negative.

JEROME WILLIAMS, formerly of the Phillies rotation, was the 13th pitcher to take the mound in last night's game against the Mets, a game that would go down as memorable only if you are a masochist seeking the prescription for post-traumatic stress disorder. OK, it wasn't that bad, but when Williams entered, the two National League East foes were coming off a bottom half of the sixth inning that took 37 minutes to play. And there was stiff competition from the top of the first, a frame that took 28 minutes to play.

MIAMI - What's likely to go down as the worst Phillies season in 54 years is, finally, on the brink of being over. There are 10 games remaining on the 2015 schedule. The Phillies will play tonight in Miami, three times this weekend in Washington, and then come home to say "So long" to Citizens Bank Park for the final time after a forgettable, woeful summer of baseball. Many of the veterans have been traded and enough of the younger players have been evaluated, giving management an idea of what the Phillies have going into another offseason of transition.

MIAMI - For the first time since becoming the Phillies' closer, Ken Giles blew a save. Giles surrendered a run in the 10th inning of the Phillies' 4-3, 11-inning loss to the Miami Marlins on Wednesday night at Marlins Park. Dee Gordon walked off the game an inning later with a two-out double off Jerome Williams. The loss dropped the Phillies to 57-95 on the season, 4.5 games worse than baseball's next-worst team, the Atlanta Braves, who defeated the first-place New York Mets on Wednesday.

MIAMI - About nine years ago, shortly after he had signed his first professional contract with the Phillies at the age of 16, Freddy Galvis was practicing with some other teenagers in his home country of Venezuela when one of the scouts decided to get in on the action. The scout was Sal Agostinelli, now the Phillies' international scouting director. "He was off to the side," Galvis recalled yesterday afternoon at Marlins Park. "And when practice was over, he went over to the batting cage, where guys were taking (batting practice)
