09/20/2015 - College PREP - Detroit, MI Joseph is a (5'10"/170) catcher who has a strong lower 1/2. Defensively behind the dish, he sits in well and tracks pitches into a soft mitt. He works hard laterally to body up pitches in the dirt. Footwork is quick as he replaces well as he works in-line toward 2B (pop times of 2.15). Quickening his exchange along with staying on top (avoid throwing uphill) will help pop times to continue to drop. With the bat, Joseph shows an athletic setup with a solid base. He tracks pitches into the zone and barrels it up consistently. Swinging on a shorter/more direct path with increased bat speed will result in more pop off of the bat. A 2017 grad - Joseph has a solid skill-set with still time to develop.
