Athletics' Josh Phegley: Pair of hits since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Resumes rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Avoids major setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phegley (thumb) reported Wednesday that his shoulder is fine after being hit by a pitch with Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

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.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Being evaluated after plunking
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phegley (thumb) was hit by a pitch in the left shoulder during Monday's game with Triple-A Las Vegas and is set to be evaluated by the Athletics' medical staff, the Associated Press reports.

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.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Plays back-to-back rehab games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phegley (thumb) went 1-for-6 with two walks and a hit by pitch over his first two rehab games with Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday and Monday.

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.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Set to begin rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Close to throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. Dustin Garneau and Chris Herrmann should continue to fill in behind the dish while Phegley remains sidelined.

August 7, 2019 02:16 PM
Athletics' Josh Phegley: Not expected to come off IL yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bob Melvin confirmed that Phegley (thumb) is not expected to come off the injured list before the Athletics return from their current road trip Aug.15, the Associated Press reports.

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.

July 31, 2019 05:12 PM
Athletics' Josh Phegley: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Out of lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: No IL stint expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Departs with thumb issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

July 27, 2019 05:28 PM
Athletics' Josh Phegley: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

July 26, 2019 06:12 PM
Athletics' Josh Phegley: Riding bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phegley isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Rangers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Phegley will head to the bench for the second game of the series after going 1-for-3 Thursday night. Chris Herrmann draws the start behind the dish and is set to bat eighth in Phegley's stead.

July 24, 2019 11:24 AM
Athletics' Josh Phegley: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phegley is not starting Wednesday against the Astros.

Phegley is hitting .135/.175/.216 in 11 games so far in July. Chris Herrmann starts behind the plate in his absence.

July 23, 2019 12:48 AM
Athletics' Josh Phegley: Clocks 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phegley went 1-for-2 with a home run, three RBI, a sac fly and a walk in Sunday's 7-6 loss to Minnesota.

Down 4-0 in the fifth inning, Phegley's two-run blast started the Athletics' comeback attempt. He later brought in another run with a sac fly to give the team a 6-5 lead in the eighth. Phegley is up to 10 homers on the year, a new career best for the 31-year-old.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Sits for second straight day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

July 19, 2019 04:40 PM
Athletics' Josh Phegley: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phegley will be on the bench Friday against the Twins.

Phegley sits after starting three straight games. Chris Herrmann takes over behind the plate.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Better in small post-ASB sample
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
