From the Top SAL Catchers list:

5. Josh Phegley, White Sox – The 38th overall selection in the 2009 draft, Phegley’s ability to handle a pitching staff, throwing arm, and propensity for driving the ball hard to the opposite field really impressed me. With his poor defensive reputation, I watched him from a number of different angles and saw nothing which would lead me to believe he could not be a serviceable big league backstop. He’s not Jackson Williams behind the plate, but he certainly is not Jesus Montero either.

Phegley’s stats. BABIP for the year was .238. Using the “normalize luck” and “normalize park” functions at Phegley’s MinorLeagueSplits.com page we get a /.275/.321/.480/.801 with a .301 BABIP line.
