Athletics' Josh Phegley hoping to win starting job
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/22/15) Athletics catcher Josh Phegley is hoping to win a starting job with his new club, according to MLB.com.
Phegley came over in the Jeff Samardzija trade during the offseason, and sees this as the first time he'll be seriously considered for the starting job. Manager Bob Melvin agreed, saying Phegley has "got a great opportunity to be that guy."
The 27-year-old had chances at playing time with the White Sox over the past few seasons, but the club opted to go with Tyler Flowers instead. Coming over to the A's should speed up the process for Phegley. "I was extremely surprised, but very excited when I heard I was coming over here," he said. "Anytime you get traded, that team obviously wants you. Everything I've heard, all the feedback I've gotten, it looks like I've got a pretty good opportunity."
Phegley has hit .207/.221/.332 over 241 career at-bats in the majors.
