Phegley is off to a heck of a start this year. He could just be hot at the plate or perhaps he has figured something out. Pretty nice numbers:

However, I do agree that 5 weeks is a bit early to judge Flowers. Although, it does appear that Tyler has a gigantic hole in his swing so far. He also has shown an inability to lay off pitcher's pitches on the outer half of the plate. He gets pull happy and rolls into a lot of 6-3 and 1-3 ground outs. If he is still struggling in July or August, it will be interesting to see if the Sox stick with him the whole way.
