Phegley is 2-for-7 with a run in his two games since returning from a stay on the 10-day injured list due to a thumb injury.
The backstop was 0-for-3 in Sunday's loss to the Astros, but he'd enjoyed a successful return from the injured list Saturday with a 2-for-4 showing. Phegley will split time with Chris Herrmann at catcher moving forward, as was the case prior to his injury.
Phegley (thumb) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday.
Phegley took the field with High-A Stockton on Thursday, and after collecting a pair of base hits, the Athletics have deemed him ready to return. Dustin Garneau was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
Phegley (thumb) resumed his rehab assignment at High-A Stockton on Thursday, going 2-for-5 with an RBI single and two runs in a win over Inland Empire.
Phegley was held out of action Tuesday and Wednesday while being evaluated after being hit on the shoulder with a pitch at Triple-A Las Vegas. The veteran backstop checked out fine, as evidenced by the fact he was able to get back into action with the Ports. With three rehab games under his belt and no apparent setbacks with the thumb injury that originally landed him on the shelf, Phegley could potentially be activated at any point moving forward.

Phegley appears to have avoided a major setback in his recovery, and he will catch again at the Triple-A level on Thursday. The 31-year-old also reported that his thumb felt "great," which is an encouraging development as he continues to work his way back to the majors.

Phegley has gone 1-for-6 over his first two rehab games with the Aviators, and he appeared to be on the verge of activation from the thumb issue that landed him on the injured list in the first place. More information on whether Monday's developments will delay his return timeline should be available shortly after Phegley is evaluated.

Phegley played all nine innings behind the dish in the first game and logged eight frames in the second, lending credence to the notion he's on the verge of activation. Phegley's return will create an interesting logjam at catcher for manager Bob Melvin, who's seen Dustin Garneau serve as a viable replacement alongside Chris Herrmann while Phegley has been sidelined.
Phegley (thumb) will begin a rehab assignment Sunday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Phegley has been sidelined since July 29 with the injury, though his return could now come as early as the middle of this week. Dustin Garneau and Chris Hermann have shared duties behind the dish in his absence, though Phegley should be the regular starter once again upon his return.
Phegley (thumb) is expected to resume throwing Wednesday or Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Phegley has been sidelined since the end of July with a bruised right thumb. Manager Bob Melvin noted earlier in the week that the backstop isn't expected to rejoin the Athletics during their current road trip, which ends Aug. 15.

Phegley is eligible to come off the IL this Friday, but he'll apparently have to wait almost an additional week before that has a chance to come to pass. Chris Herrmann and Dustin Garneau, both of whom have been productive in Phegley's stead, will continue to split time behind the dish during the latter's ongoing absence.
Phegley (thumb) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Phegley left Sunday's game against the Rangers with a bruised right thumb, though the Athletics originally didn't expect him to require a trip to the injured list. That optimism was evidently unfounded, however. Beau Taylor was recalled to back up Chris Herrmann in Phegley's absence.
Phegley (thumb) was not in Tuesday's lineup against the Brewers and remains day-to-day, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Phegley is still expected to avoid a stint on the injured list, but Monday's day off apparently wasn't sufficient for his thumb contusion to make the necessary improvement for the backstop to suit up against Milwaukee. Phegley's status will be one to monitor ahead of Wednesday's game against the Brewers, with Chris Herrmann likely due for another start in Phegley's stead if he's forced to miss a second straight contest.
Phegley (thumb) is not expected to require a stint on the injured list, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Phegley suffered a contusion on his glove hand Sunday against the Rangers, but Slusser's report certainly bodes well for his overall outlook. The Athletics were off Monday, so Phegley could potentially overcome the issue without missing any games.
Phegley left Sunday's game against the Rangers due to a left thumb contusion, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Given the nature of the issue, Phegley's injury doesn't appear to be overly serious, though it's concerning that the injury is on his glove hand. He'll be considered day-to-day until further notice.
Phegley is not starting Saturday against the Rangers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Phegley will stick on the bench for a second straight game as Chris Hermann picks up another start behind the dish in his stead. Over his past 10 appearances, Phegley is slashing just .182/.200/.273 with one home run and five RBI.

Phegley is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Twins, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
After a string of three consecutive starts during which he recorded two hits across 12 at-bats, Phegley will now be on the bench for a second straight day. While Phegley still slots in atop the depth chart at catcher, it's apparent that his edge over Chris Herrmann in the playing-time battle is only a slight one.
Phegley will be on the bench Friday against the Twins.
Phegley sits after starting three straight games. Chris Herrmann takes over behind the plate.
Phegley, who's sat in five of the Athletics' 10 games during July in favor of Chris Herrmann, is 3-for-8 with two RBI and two runs over his two post-All-Star-break starts.
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.
