Blake Tekotte promoted to Sox

The Chicago White Sox promoted Triple-A Charlotte All-Star catcher Josh Phegley on Friday in a series of transactions.

The promotion of Phegley, 24, who was batting .316 with 15 home runs and 41 RBIs in 61 games with the Knights, puts starter Tyler Flowers on notice. Backup catcher Hector Gimenez was designated for assignment. Gimenez batted .191 in 68 at-bats, and the Sox have 10 days to trade, waive or outright him.
