|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/9/14) The Athletics announced Tuesday they completed a six-player trade with the White Sox. The Athletics acquired infielder Marcus Semien, pitcher Chris Bassitt, catcher Josh Phegley and infielder Rangel Ravelo in exchange for pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Michael Ynoa.
Semien has hit .240 with eight home runs and 35 RBI in 85 career games for Chicago. He was considered a top-100 prospect (No. 91) by Baseball America heading into 2014. He has appeared at second base, third base and shortstop in his MLB career.
Bassitt went 1-1 with a 3.94 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in six outings (five starts) for the White Sox last season. He was 22-10 with a 2.97 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 96 career appearances (44 starts) in the minors.
Phegley hit .207 with seven home runs and 29 RBI in 76 games over the last two seasons for Chicago.
Ravelo hit .309 with a .473 slugging percentage, .859 OPS, 11 home runs, 37 doubles and 66 RBI in 133 games for Double-A Birmingham last season. He has a career .301/368/.424/.792 slash line. The 22-year-old Ravelo has played at both first base and third base in the minors.

|(3/19/14) Catcher Josh Phegley headlines a quartet of White Sox dispatched to minor league camp Wednesday. The others are third baseman Andy Wilkins and pitchers Andre Rienzo and Eric Surkamp.
The White Sox are woefully short behind the plate. Unproven Tyler Flowers is set as the starter and Adrian Nieto his backup, though the team has been rumored to be looking for an upgrade via trade.
Tyler Flowers wins starting catcher job
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/14) White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Sunday that Tyler Flowers will be his starting catcher this season "unless something drastically changes," MLB.com reports.
"I'm glad they recognize I'm healthy and I've been working hard to get to this point," Flowers said Monday. "It was kind of questionable in my mind for a little bit during the offseason, 'Can I be ready for the season?' Not to be a starter or anything but can I be ready just to play, I guess I'm proud of myself in that respect, but it's still a long road."
Flowers has batted .231 with one home run and three RBI in 11 games this spring. Josh Phegley, Adrian Nieto and Hector Gimenez will compete for backup duties.
