Phegley having big season in Triple-A

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.
