RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Joseph played in just 36 games last season as he struggled to come back from a concussion that he suffered in early May. He met with three specialists in the offseason and received clearance to return to catching. The Phillies sent him to the Dominican Winter League during the offseason to make up for some of the lost development time. Joseph saw his prospect status dim last season because of the missed time, but he was also struggling at the plate prior to the concussion. However, given the limited number of games played, his 2013 season should be considered a lost year. He still has some upside and will likely be undervalued in prospect drafts this spring, although the long-term deal given to Carlos Ruiz this winter does not bode well for Joseph's path to playing time in Philadelphia.

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.
