Athletics' Josh Phegley: Better in small post-ASB sample
Phegley had opened July going 0-for-11 while starting three of the Athletics' six pre-All-Star-break games, but he's picked up the pace a bit over the last pair of starts. The veteran catcher has a .256/.297/.447 line for the season, has tied his career high with nine home runs, and has compiled a career-best 44 RBI. However, Herrmann has also been playing well during his relatively limited opportunities, and Nick Hundley (knee), who's set to continue his rehab assignment with High-A Stockton on Wednesday, is getting closer to a return. Phegley's roster spot would appear to be safe, but more outings the likes of Tuesday's 2-for-4, two-RBI effort against the Mariners will go a long way toward preventing Herrmann from making too many inroads into Phegley's playing time.
