Galvis OK after fouling pitch off left foot

Galvis OK after fouling pitch off left foot

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Freddy Galvis offered a quick smile in front of his locker Tuesday afternoon at Bright House Field.

"It's good," he said. "I'm good."

Galvis fouled a pitch off the top of his left foot in the eighth inning in a 5-4 victory over the Pirates. Galvis, who left the game, suffered a bruise, but the Phillies do not believe the injury to be serious.

Galvis, who did not get X-rays, is day to day. A doctor will examine him Wednesday.

"Tomorrow, I'm good," Galvis said.

The Phillies already are without Ryan Howard (left Achilles surgery), Chase Utley (chronic left knee injury) and Michael Martinez (fractured right foot). If Galvis can not play, the Phillies likely would turn to infielder Pete Orr, unless they acquired somebody before the beginning of the season. But they could not afford to lose Galvis for any period of time.

That said, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said it wasn't a scary moment for him.

"Scary, no?" he said. "It takes a [heck] of a lot to scare me. If I get scared, I usually get mad."
