— Player Notes
Advice: Joseph was once a nice prospect behind the plate, but he's dealt with numerous concussions and the Phils have finally decided enough is enough. "Hes not going to catch going forward," said director of player development Joe Jordan. "Were not going to expose him to that type of risk. Tommy is very excited about the move and anxious to get back on the field playing again." Joseph is hitting just .123/.135/.178 this season and it's fair to question whether he has enough bat to profile at first base.
