Another blurb today about Phegley on

Under the Radar
It's probably safe to say 25-year-old Josh Phegley probably did not enter the season on many fantasy owners' radars. The White Sox's 2009 first-rounder hadn't distinguished himself in parts of four Minor League seasons, and last year with Triple-A Charlotte hit just .266/.306/.373 in 102 games. But something's clicked for the Indiana University product this year. Through 33 games, he's been on fire for the Knights, hitting .333/.393/.659, already having set a career high in home runs last Thursday with his10th of the year.

With Chicago's primary catcher, Tyler Flowers, hitting .195 in the bigs, it's possible the team's No. 15 prospect will get an extended look. And with just six qualified catchers in the American League boasting an OPS of .700 or better, AL-only owners could find themselves getting a useful jolt of offense at the position from the apparently late-blooming Phegley.
