09/13/2017 - Under Armour Fall Classic, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One
Joseph is an athletic 1B prospect who hustled on and off the field during his time at the Under Armour Fall Classic. In the field, Joseph shows active footwork and centers ground balls in the middle of his body. He gets into a square fielding position and has a clean exchange to throw, keeping his throws accurate and online to his target. Joseph can improve defensively by presenting his hands earlier to the ball. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an open stance and takes a square stride. He is fluid getting into his load and finishes with a firm front side in his lower half. He produces fast bat speed through the zone which leads to solid pop to his pull side. Joseph can improve as a hitter by working to hit the ball to all fields. Overall, Joseph is a solid prospect who has the potential to contribute at the next level.

Joseph is a solid, athletic 1B who will graduate in 2018. At the plate is where he shows best, through a squared setup. Hands are quick (86 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and utilizes his lower half with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Power shows best to the pull side. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is soft / sure but will benefit by presenting more out front. Feet are active as he attacks balls, playing through well. Range will increase as he works to increase foot quickness. Joseph has potential with a lot of room to progress his game.
