Joseph may play winter ball if he gets a clean bill of health from Micky Collins, a concussion specialist at the University of Pittsburgh, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "He has been medically cleared 100 percent for baseball activities by [two other] doctors he has seen," Joe Jordan, the Phillies' director of player development, said. "There was a little bit of conflicting information from the two doctors even though they both cleared him 100 percent. We said, 'Listen, let's send him up [to Pittsburgh] . . . to get a third opinion from the best guy in the business - Collins - and hopefully it puts him at ease, us at ease, and everything is a go.'

2013

Joseph immediately became the Phillies' top hitting prospect after his acquisition from the Giants in the Hunter Pence deal at the trade deadline. He projects as a regular at the big league level and should hit for power. He does need to make some improvements with his plate discipline, but at only 21 years old there is still time for that to happen. Look for Joseph to eventually replace Carlos Ruiz as the primary backstop in Philadelphia.

2012

Joseph showed pop in the hitter-friendly California League in 2011, but his plate discipline still leaves plenty to be desired and the Giants have no reason to rush him with Buster Posey entrenched as their franchise catcher.
