CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The Phillies announced this morning that infielder Freddy Galvis is in the hospital with a staph infection. Earlier in the week Galvis had an abscess removed from his left knee.

How long Galvis will be sidelined is not yet known, but it’s likely he won’t be available for the beginning of the season.

Galvis had been a lock to earn one of the team's bench spots.

In addition, Domonic Brown returned to the clubhouse after missing the last two days with the flu. Brown isn’t in the starting lineup for today’s game with the Boston Red Sox.

“I should be ready to go tomorrow,” Brown said.
