Phegley's defense should be similar or worse. He's not strong behind the plate other than possessing a good arm. He has 8 passed balls in 60 games in Charlotte. Flowers has 7 passed balls in 65 games in Chicago. It's not going to get easier with the better breaking stuff he's going to be catching in the majors. We are going to have two sub-par defenders at catcher the rest of this season. I'm hoping Phegley's bat is noticeably better though.
