2015

Having passed Johnny Monell on the organizational depth chart after an outstanding 2013 season at Double-A Bowie (.299/.346/.494 with 22 homers and 97 RBI), Joseph was next in line for a promotion to Baltimore when the team needed a replacement for Matt Wieters (elbow) behind the plate in early May. The Orioles brought in the more experienced Nick Hundley from San Diego when Wieters' injury forced him out of action completely, and he and Joseph split time at catcher throughout the rest of the regular season and into October. Joseph certainly didn't endear himself to coaches or fans early on, slashing just .187/.262/.308 in the first half, but the 28-year-old got hot in early August, homering in five straight games, a record for Baltimore backstops. He went on a more dubious stretch in September, finishing the regular season on an 0-for-30 slide, during which he struck out 13 times while walking once (25.1% K% for season). Wieters is expected back to begin the year, but with Hundley gone, Joseph would be in line to inherit the true primary role should Wieters' elbow present more issues.
