Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley (knee) is not yet able to get in a crouch to get behind the plate, as he slowly recovers from surgery to remove a cyst from his right knee last month.
Fantasy Tip: When healthy Phegley is only worth a look as a No. 2 receiver in AL-only fantasy formats. Stephen Vogt remains the primary backstop in Oakland.

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley (knee) could resume baseball activities next week, according to manager Bob Melvin.
Fantasy Tip: Phegley underwent surgery to remove a cyst from his right knee less than two weeks ago. When healthy, he usually doesn't play more than once or twice a week, so he is not worth stashing in any fantasy format.

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley (knee) underwent surgery to remove a cyst from his knee Tuesday, July 5.
Fantasy Tip: Matt McBride was promoted last time Phegley was injured, so expect McBride to receive the call again. However, these are low-level fantasy options. Phegley isn't worth stashing while injured, and McBride isn't worth an add.

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley (knee) could need surgery on his injured right knee, manager Bob Melvin said Sunday, July 3.
Fantasy Tip: Matt McBride would likely serve as the backup catcher for as long as Phegley is sidelined, but he doesn't warrant attention from fantasy owners.

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, July 3, because of a strained right knee. C Matt McBride was recalled from Class AAA Nashville.

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley (knee) is dealing with knee discomfort and he is expected to land on the 15-day disabled list, according to sources. He had a cortisone shot for a sore right knee in mid-May and had been feeling good, but it started acting up again Saturday, July 2. The team is likely to recall C Matt McBride to help back up C Stephen Vogt.
Fantasy Tip: Phegley is hitting .256 with a homer and 10 RBIs, and is only worth a look as a No. 2 receiver in deeper AL-only fantasy formats when healthy.
