Galvis' suspension over, but will go on DL

MILWAUKEE -- Thursday represented the 50th game of Phillies second baseman Freddy Galvis' 50-game suspension for using a performance-enhancing substance.

He will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a strained lower back.

It is doubtful Galvis plays before the end of the season because he still is recovering from his back injury. He possibly could play in Instructional League, but he is expected to play Winter Ball in Venezuela.
