Galvis activated, Hernandez optioned to AA Reading

Cesar Hernandez has been optioned to AA Reading in the wake of Freddy Galvis' activation from the disabled list.

PHILADELPHIA -

The Fightin Phils are off to a strong 5-2 start this season. Reading took the series opener in Harrisburg Thursday. The addition of Cesar Hernandez to the Fightins roster could mean more bad news for the Senators.

The move comes in the wake of Freddy Galvis' activation from the 15-day disabled list.

Filling in for Galvis, Hernandez got some playing time with the Phillies. Most of that came at second base when Chase Utley was out of the lineup.

Galvis has been working his way back from a MRSA infection picked up at spring training. The utility man will add defensive depth to the Phillies bench.
