Joseph was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
ANALYSIS
Joseph will now head to his third team of the season. He's done very little in 19 games for Oakland and San Francisco so far this year, hitting .151/.193/.245. It's hard to envision him playing a major role in Pittsburgh over the final two weeks.

Erik Siegrist checks out the free-agent pool in the Junior Circuit, where Christin Stewart is likely to be one of the last name-brand prospects to get a big-league promotion.
2013 Fantasy Outlook
Joseph has slowly but surely progressed through the Yankees' farm system since being drafted in the fourth round in 2008, and while he'll never be a star, he could develop into a league-average middle infielder in the next year or two. Joseph has put up similar numbers at each new level in the minors, hitting in the .270 range with low-teens power and not much speed. He's not a particularly good defender, and while it's possible Joseph could latch on with the Yankees in a similar role as Eric Chavez played last season, there doesn't seem to be a path to a full-time role for him.
