Joseph went 1-for-4 and scored a run in Sunday's win over the Yankees. The catcher's two-out single in the fourth inning kept a rally going that led to a three-run homer by the next hitter, Tim Beckham. Joseph hammered out a .286 batting average with a .743 OPS during the season's first half, but his numbers haven't been as good since the All-Star Game. Outside of the deepest leagues, owners can find much better options than Joseph at this point in the season.
Joseph is not in Wednesday's starting lineup against Colorado. Joseph continues to rotate with Welington Castillo behind the plate. The duo's platoon is nearly a perfect 50-50 split, making the two irrelevant in weekly formats. On the other hand, the O's catchers are respectable options in daily leagues whenever in the starting lineup.
Joseph -- who was a late scratch Saturday after coming down with an illness -- will start behind the plate and bat ninth against the Angels. Joseph has worked his way into a near-even split with Welington Castillo. The former's .281/.314/.462 slash line sits at career-best marks across the board through 69 games.
Joseph was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup. He was set to start for Welington Castillo (illness), but Castillo is feeling better, so he slots in at catcher, hitting eighth. Make sure to get Joseph out of any daily lineups.
Joseph went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Friday against the Angels. Joseph crushed his eighth bomb of the season in the third inning, as the Orioles were rallying from an early deficit in a contest they'd go on to win. Despite playing part-time, he's hit three homers in nine games this month, and he's a good option in daily leagues at the catcher position while he's hot.
