Orioles' Caleb Joseph: Adjusts swing for rebound campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph, who will be the backup catcher to Welington Castillo, is optimistic that he's corrected a flaw in his swing that will help him rebound from a poor 2016, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

Joseph believes there were certain aspects of his swing that weren't allowing him to be successful. More specifically, the 30-year-old attributes last season's struggles an inability to consistently keep his bat in the zone. Joseph expanded, "Certain guys do certain things and really try to keep the bat in the zone as long as possible. I was in and out of the zone. And when you're in and out of the zone, you only have a really small margin of error." With Castillo headed to the WBC next month, Joseph will see plenty of at-bats in spring training to rehearse his new swing plane.

Orioles' Caleb Joseph: Loses arbitration case
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph lost his arbitration case and will receive $700,000 for the 2017 season, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

The backup catcher requested $1 million for the upcoming season, but the arbiter sided with the Orioles. Joseph will serve as Welington Castillo's backup this season. He lacks the raw power to make a difference in most fantasy formats when he is only playing once or twice per week.

Orioles' Caleb Joseph: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Joseph was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.

Joseph occupied a backup catcher role with the O's for much of the season before recently being sent down with the team opting to give the backup duties to Francisco Pena. Both Joseph and Pena should struggle to see a useful amount of at-bats behind Matt Wieters over the final month of the season.

Orioles' Caleb Joseph: Optioned to Norfolk
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Joseph was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday, Rich Dubroff of CSN Mid Atlantic reports.

With Matt Wieters returning from paternity leave, the Orioles needed to free up a spot on the 25-man roster. Joseph will be the casualty while the team holds onto Francisco Pena as Wieters' backup. The 30-year-old Joseph is hitting just .193 in 114 at-bats on the season, but he's expected to return once rosters expand at the start of next month.

Orioles' Caleb Joseph: Activated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (groin) was activated from the DL on Thursday, the Baltimore Sun reports.

He will return to his role as backup to Matt Wieters with Francisco Pena optioned to Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding move. While Joseph managed 28 extra-base hits in 100 games with the big club last year, he has just two in 23 games this year (both doubles), resulting in a dismal .030 isolated power mark.
