Scouting Report

Blocking and footwork have been smoothed out over the years, but still could improve. Good agility behind the plate, but an average arm which will limit his defensive potential. Footwork improvement could also help out his throwing. He is athletic enough to play first base, or even the outfield in a pinch. May not be a full-time catcher at this point in his career, but can certainly play the position still. Disciplined hitter who makes hard contact. Above-average power potential. Good pitch recognition. Hands are very quick to the inside pitch and he can drive the ball to left field. Swing has improved in past two years, but it is unclear whether that is due to extended playtime in AA or whether he has truly harnessed his game. At the very worst, Joseph looks to be a decent option as a MLB bench player.
