The Phillies have chosen Shortstop Freddy Galvis and righthander Trevor May as the Player of the Year and Pitcher of the Year in their minor league system. Galvis and May will receive the Paul Owens Award for their accomplishments during a pregame presentation Sept. 18.

Galvis, 21, batted .278 with 28 doubles, five triples, eight homers and 43 RBIs in 137 games between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He stole 23 bases and scored 78 runs. He is regarded as an excellent fielder and he went a long way toward alleviating concerns about his hitting.

May, 21, went 10-8 with a 3.21 ERA for Single-A Clearwater. He struck out 208 batters in 151 1/3 innings, the third highest rate in all the minors.
