Joseph continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line to his target through a clean transfer/exchange. Pop time has improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.60 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He tracks the ball well and presents a low target. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to get his body down sooner to improve grade.

Joseph is a 2022 OF/C prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the D.C. All Star Experience. In the field, Joseph makes the routine play and works to make accurate throws to his target. Joseph can improve defensively by quickening his footwork. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a square stance and maintains center balance. He takes a direct swing to the ball and produces line drives. Joseph can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. With four more years to develop, Joseph has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
