by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) The Athletics will use their third new lineup in as many days Wednesday against the Rangers, starting Mark Canha at first base, Josh Phegley at catcher and Tyler Ladendorf at second base, the team announced.

Canha will replace Ike Davis at first and make his first career appearance in the majors. Phegley will replace Stephen Vogt at catcher and is hitting .207 with seven home runs and 29 RBI in his career. Ladendorf will replace Eric Sogard at second and make just his third career appearance in the majors.


Athletics' Josh Phegley hoping to win starting job


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2015) 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. 


Stephen Vogt might not catch early on


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/8/2015) Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt, who's coming off right foot surgery, might not catch spring training games initially but will catch bullpen sessions, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. This season Vogt is expected to share time behind the plate with Josh Phegley.

Vogt batted .279 with nine homers and 35 RBI in 269 at-bats last year.


Semien among four players A's acquire in trade with White Sox


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) 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.

White Sox send down four


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) 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
(3/17/2014) 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.

by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com

Josh Phegley returns to lineup


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Josh Phegley could help with homers in deeper leagues


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(7/9/2013) Josh Phegley was not a highly regarded prospect entering this season, but a breakout at Triple-A Charlotte boosted his profile and earned him a promotion. Now he's been in the starting lineup for four of White Sox's last five games, so it appears he has replaced Tyler Flowers as the team's primary catcher.

Phegley blasted 15 home runs in just 61 games at Charlotte, and he's homered in back-to-back games with the White Sox, but is his power for real? He had never hit more than nine home runs in any previous minor-league season, but Phegley has had long-standing flyball tendencies. At age 25, perhaps Phegley is breaking out offensively. He doesn't walk much, but he's not prone to strikeouts, so he could wind up being a poor man's version of Wilin Rosario. Like his Rockies' counterpart, Phegley has a home park that could help to boost his power numbers.

Maybe Phegley's power surge will be short-lived, but given what he's done already this season and his apparent shot at regular playing time, he is worth picking up in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues.


Josh Phegley gets another start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2013) White Sox catcher Josh Phegley is in the team's starting lineup Tuesday against the Tigers.

Phegley will hit ninth against Justin Verlander. Phegley has homered in his last two games. He's hitting .300 in 10 at-bats. 


Josh Phegley homers in second straight


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2013) Playing in just his third major-league game, White Sox catcher Josh Phegley hit his second home run. He homered for the second time in as many nights as the White Sox lost to the Cubs Monday. 

Phegley went 1 for 3 in the game with the solo shot. He's gone 3 for 10 in his first three games with four RBI. He has at least one run driven in for each game he has played. 


Josh Phegley blasts first career homer


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2013) White Sox catcher Josh Phegley blasted his first career home run Sunday in Tampa Bay off starter David Price, the Tampa Bay Times reports. Phegley homered with two outs and nobody on base in the sixth inning.

Josh Phegley drives in two in MLB debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2013) White Sox catcher Josh Phegley made his presence felt at the dish in his big-league debut Friday night against the Rays.

Phegley, who hit 316/.368/.597 with 15 home runs in the minors, singled in a run in the fifth and drove one more in on a sacrifice fly in the ninth. He finished 1 for 3 with two RBI in an 8-3 defeat.

White Sox call up Josh Phegley


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2013) The White Sox have called up prospect catcher Josh Phegley from Triple-A Charlotte, MLB.com reports.

Phegley, 25, was generally listed outside the top 10 prospects in a weak White Sox farm system prior to the season but has broken out at Carlotte. In 61 games, Phegley owns a .316/.368/.597 with 15 home runs and 18 doubles in 61 games. With Tyler Flowers scuffling this season, with just a .632 OPS, so the door could be open for some major playing time for Phegley.


White Sox to promote catching prospect Josh Phegley


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2013) The White Sox will promote catching prospect Josh Phegley Friday, CSN Chicago reports. He is expected to share time with regular catcher Tyler Flowers.

Phegley, 25, has hit .316/.368/.597 with 15 home runs and 41 RBI in 258 at-bats with Triple-A Charlotte.


Josh Phegley making noise at Triple-A


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2013) Triple-A Charlotte catcher Josh Phegley has a .333 average, 11 doubles, 10 home runs and 28 RBI and the 25-year-old has impressed many in the White Sox organization.

Still, Chicago is OK with what they have at the major league level right now. 

"When you make a switch at an integral position like that, you have to look at sort of the potential of the unintended consequences," general manager Rich Hahn told MLB.com Wednesday. "It's not just an offensive change. There's also a very important defensive component. We are on a good roll right now from what our pitchers are doing. Nor is it reasonable to say, 'All right, Josh is hitting (.333) in Triple-A so come up here and do the same thing in his major-league debut and then take over this pitching staff and let's go. That being said, I do think that Josh is showing himself capable of potentially being an impact catcher at the major-league level."
