12/10/2017 - College PREP - Nyack (NYC), NY
Joseph is a young, thin 3rd baseman who will graduate in 2020. Defensively, Joseph has good energy to the ball, his feet are quick and fluid, and he moves with good agility to the ball. He plays through properly, makes plays consistently, and throws with accuracy and good direction to his target. If Joseph can field further out front, loosen his arm action, and stay relaxed through release, defensive skills can further improve. Offensively, Joseph has a square/athletic set-up, a good load, and solid balance. He stays inside the ball, swings level, and makes consistent contact. Hitting can further improve if Joseph can loosen his grip, swing more aggressively, and use more lower ½.
