Oakland's Phegley back in form after knee problem

MESA, Ariz. (AP) A change in his catching stance has Josh Phegley feeling fine and ready to resume his role as part of the Oakland Athletics' platoon at the position.

Phegley, after taking some cuts in the batting cage early at spring training Thursday, leaned back and slightly to the side to demonstrate his previous staggered stance. It mysteriously caused fluid buildup in his left knee and made it difficult to catch two days in a row last season, and the A's didn't often have Phegley's bat to counter left-handed starters.

"You could see it in there, just a little bit of swelling. But no pain really, ever," Phegley said. "The staggered part was kind of the reason my hip was drifting back and getting locked in. If anyone stood like this all day every day, they'd get a little asymmetrical."
