After ending the 2013 season with the Chicago White Sox Wabash Valley baseball great Josh Phegley is trying to get back to the big’s.

The former Terre Haute North star started this season in Triple-A with the Charlotte Knights. Phegley is making a case to get another call from the White Sox. The Charlotte slugger currently has a 15-game hitting streak. Since June 30th he leads the International League with a .455 batting average.

Behind the plate the Knights catcher is having one of his best defensive seasons. He leads all  catchers in the league in games caught (76), total chances (696), putouts (626), and assists (64). He has also thrown out a league-best 48% of attempted basestealers.

He went into the tank in MLB quickly last year after a hot start to finish with a .206/.223/.299 set. The numbers may not suggest it, but he should be better prepared for a second shot at the bigs, with an idea of what to expect, at least. He proved to be more than adequate behind the dish last year, and his defense has been top-notch this season. […]
