Latest Update Caleb Joseph went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in the Orioles win over the Red Sox on Wednesday. Wed Sep, 10, 09:06 PM
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.
Joseph broke out of an 0-for-11 slump in a big way today. His average is hovering around .230 and shouldn't be started in fantasy formats as he is not a regular player. He is in the midst of a catching timeshare with teammate Nick Hundley.Analyst: Colby Conway
Joseph had been stuck in a slump lately which opened up playing time for Nick Hundley behind the plate for the O's, This big game should give him confidence moving forward and possibly prompt Showalter to terminate the current timeshare that is the Orioles' catchers.Analyst: Colby Conway
The O's catcher was on fire earlier this month when he homered in five straight games, but has really cooled off since then. Nick Hundley will get the start in his place.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
The downside of being off the radar most of the time is that few fantasy owners are reaping the benefits of what Joseph is sowing right now. He's not hit home runs in five straight games and has kicked in nine RBI and five runs scored in that span. He's been holding down the primary catching job in Baltimore for some time now, so AL-only players who wised-up and grabbed him continue to do their little happy dance. Hard to believe he can keep this up, so if you're thinking about picking him up, you're probably not going to see the same results.Analyst: Howard Bender
