11/20/2016 - College PREP - Shreveport, LA Joseph has really improved his baseball abilities with a tremendous future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 6.77 runner. In the MIF, defensive abilities are outstanding as he shows smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active / aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft /sure as he presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Hands / feet work well together through the fielding process as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy / carry on his throws. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He covers a ton of ground but needs to work to get behind balls more to play through with momentum to his target. At the plate, he has improved the most, now showing well above average hitting abilities with solid power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work to and through a short / level swing path, creating extension. Barrel accuracy is a plus as he utilizes his lower half well with baseball exploding off the bat when centered. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap to gap pop. With 4 years to further develop, Joseph has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
