Latest Update Caleb Joseph hits third home run Wed Jul, 02, 05:09 AM
Despite abnormal height for the catching position, he is an excellent receiver and overall defensive backstop. Can also hit the ball out of the yard, which adds value.
Flaws: : Is an inconsistent hitter whose bat may not have enough hits in it to play regularly at the big-league level. Also, he needs to put it altogether as a game-caller and leader.
Although Joseph is not known for his power stroke, he has now homered in three of his last eight games as he tried to do his best filling in for Matt Wieters behind the dish. He is now sitting on a .170 average with three home run and 11 RBI, so until he starts to hit on more of a regular basis, he should only be worth monitoring in AL-only leagues moving forward.

Joseph has been hitting the ball well lately, having now homered in back-to-back games as he continues to get the call behind the dish. However, he is still hitting a mere .176 through his first 74 at-bats, so he is going to have to keep up the pace before gaining any lasting fantasy value. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Joseph smacked his first career home run in Sunday's matchup against the Yankees, but has done little at the plate to warrant any serious consideration. Through 74 at-bats, Joseph is hitting a mere .141 with one home run and six RBI making his fantasy value next to nothing although he will see regular playing time as the season progresses.
