Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Recalled from Lehigh Valley
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knapp was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Knapp will provide a little catching insurance behind Jorge Alfaro while Wilson Ramos nurses a wrist injury. In a corresponding move, Justin Bour (oblique) was put on the 10-day DL. Through 68 games with the Phillies this year, Knapp has slashed .217/.310/.354 with four home runs and 15 RBI.

Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Added as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knapp was added as the Phillies' 26th man for Sunday's Little League Classic against the Mets, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Both sides will get an extra player with the game being played in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. It's unlikely the Phillies will need to keep a third catcher around for more than a day, so expect Knapp to head back to the minors after the game.

Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knapp was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

With Wilson Ramos getting reinstated from the disabled list, the Phillies will go with two catchers until rosters expand in September. Knapp was 2-for-13 with six strikeouts and one walk in eight August games before getting demoted.

Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Flyballs driving increased production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knapp has steadily increased his flyball rate this season, leading to a strong performance at the plate in July, The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Knapp's flyball rate has been above 40 percent in July after it sat below 30 percent in the beginning of the season, leading to an excellent .333/.459/.667 line in 37 July plate appearances. The sample size may be small, but it's encouraging that the positive outcomes seem to be driven by a change in process. Knapp was always a bat-first catcher in the minors, and his career slash line in 108 major-league games now sits at .250/.355/.382, good for a 97 wRC+, a perfectly respectable mark for a catcher. If the strong performances at the plate continue, he could claw back some playing time from fellow catcher Jorge Alfaro, though Alfaro has the greater prospect pedigree and has been a far better pitch framer.

Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Making history as leadoff hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knapp will start at catcher and serve as the Phillies' leadoff man Sunday against the Pirates, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Incredibly, Knapp is the first catcher to serve as a leadoff hitter for the Phillies in the live-ball era, per the Elias Sports Bureau. It's likely just a temporary assignment for Knapp, as the Phillies could get primary table setter Cesar Hernandez (foot) back as soon as Monday's doubleheader against the Mets.
