BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Tommy Joseph spent his season playing catch-up from time lost to post-concussion difficulties that will bump him off catching and over to first base. That he got 175 plate appearances at all was far more important than the lackluster offensive performance that accompanied them.
2015 Another lost season has cost Joseph dearly, though when we're talking about recurring concussions there are more serious issues at hand. Once ahead of schedule as a 21-year old with some Triple-A time under his belt, Joseph has now been limited to just 63 games over the past two years. A head injury ended his 2013 season—his third concussion, at least, he said—and a "possible concussion" knocked him foggy in April 2014. He missed a week, then returned for one before a wrist injury essentially ended his season. In that week between injuries he was catching, but a position switch seems prudent. While he has the power to carry first base, there is a substantial roadblock there—Ryan Howard's five-year, $125 million contract extension hasn't even started yet. (Joke.) For now, getting healthy is Joseph's biggest concern.
2014 Joseph was the prize acquired from the Giants in the Hunter Pence trade. The 22-year-old was expected to be the eventual successor to Carlos Ruiz, but a concussion in May fractured his season and might ultimately force a move to first base. In 72 games spent mostly between Single-A and Double-A, Joseph posted an aggregate .514 OPS, with his power almost completely sapped. Combined with the progression of Cameron Rupp, Joseph might not get a shot until September 2014, if he gets one at all.
2013 The prize of the Hunter Pence deal, Joseph enjoyed the hitters haven that is the California League, where at one point he hit eight home runs in six road games in Stockton and Lancaster. Unsurprisingly, he saw his power fade upon the move to Reading. The Eastern League represents a higher level and an ERA nearly a full run lower, so don't read too much into the slippage. That said, defense figures to be Joseph's calling card in the majors. He spends some time at first base, but his catching skills have advanced enough that he shouldn't have to worry about his bat carrying another position.
2012 Joseph was the second-youngest player to qualify for the batting title in the California League in 2011. Through May, he was badly overmatched, but he improved each month afterward and hit .301/.346/.574 in the second half. Joseph doesn't take many pitches, but a better contact rate in 2011 took some of the lopsidedness out of his strikeout-to-walk numbers. He's not an athletic defenderhe's not an athletic anything, reallybut he did cut his passed ball rate by half and threw out 37 percent of baserunners. A promotion to Double-A will keep him ahead of his peers, but advanced pitching won't suit his free swinging.
2011 The Giants second-round pick in 2009, high-school catcher Tommy Joseph made his pro debut in the Sally League in 2010 and showed power but little else. He projects as a slugger, but not the sort whose value could survive a move to first base.

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-06-16 21:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty League: Which catcher would you want this year and long-term? Tommy Joseph, Grandal, or TdA?
(Kion from Pride Land)
Still want d'Arnaud. (Bret Sayre)
2016-06-21 20:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy Joseph has cooled considerably lately. Does he have the chops to make as 1B in the majors? What do you see production wise ROS and in 2017?
(J.T. Chance from Rio Bravo)
Not a big fan of Tommy Joseph' chances to be a top-10 guy in fantasy at 1B at any point. His approach leaves a lot to be desired, and once MLB pitchers figure that out, he'll struggle. It looks like that's already happening. He's going to have to make a big adjustment to his approach to hit enough to stick at 1B long term. Most players who need to make that dramatic a change to their approach can't actually do it. I'm rooting for him, though - I'm a Phillies fan and I live in South Philly. (Scooter Hotz)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)Does Tommy Joseph have a fantasy future still after today's news?
(Paul from Daytona)
He might, but that future might be a couple of years down the road. Unless you're in a deeper dynasty league, feel free to drop him. (Mike Gianella)
2012-12-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, Do you think Tommy Joseph can stick behind the plate? is he #2 in the phillies system for you?
(mbrophy from NJ)
I don't think he can stick behind the plate. I havent started the Phillies list, but he will be in consideration. (Jason Parks)
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wondering how the Giants keep winning titles with such a mediocre farm system? The are never ranked very high and they never sign the big free agent guys. What gives?
(Paul Reiger from Bay)
The most precise answer is the draft. Their farm systems haven't ranked high because their top draft picks since 2006 -- Lincecum, Bumgarner, Posey -- haven't spent a lot of time in the minors. . John Barr has done a good job, especially considering he's not simply the domestic scouting director but the one who oversees the international front, too. Barr's first draft was 2008 (Posey, Crawford, Surkamp), but in '09 he drafted Zack Wheeler (traded for Carlos Beltran), Tommy Joseph (traded n the deal to land Hunter Pence) and Belt. Brian Wilson and Sergio Romo were also draftees. Romo a 28th rounder in 2005.

It also helps that Bruce Bochy runs a goldilocks clubhouse and they have leaders (Posey, Pence, Wilson) that don't allow things to crumble. (Jason A. Churchill)
