Phegley signs with White Sox

The Chicago White Sox came to terms with former Indiana catcher Josh Phegley Saturday.

Phegley, who hit .344 with 17 home runs and 66 RBIs as a junior with the Hoosiers this year, was the 38th overall pick in the MLB draft earlier this month. Phegley was a first-team All-Big Ten selection.

“We got a catcher we really like at the sandwich pick, a strong offensive catcher. It was an area where we needed some help, some depth,” White Sox director of amateur scouting Doug Laumann was quoted as saying on the White Sox’s official Web sie.

Of the six picks signed by the White Sox Saturday, Phegley is the only one targeted for Class-A Kannapolis.

  1. Class A means he is like every other draftee. No team is going to take a kid in the beginning of the second round and send him to tee ball. What’d you expect Jay?

  2. Jay is right and dude, you’re wrong on this one if you ask me. Josh bypassed Rookie ball and went straight to high A ball. Most don’t. They probably have higher hopes for JP.

  3. most from the draft will be in a ball this year. once in awhile they a or aa, but its not very often there i class ball to start, but in rookie level. arrnett is in is rookie ball.
