Mets' Caleb Joseph: Sent to minors
Joseph was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday.
Joseph suffered a minor injury after he was hit by a pitch March 14, but he returned to the field shortly thereafter. However, the 34-year-old will begin the year in the minors after hitting .143 with two walks and four strikeouts in 10 at-bats this spring.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Caleb Joseph: Leaves after HBP
Joseph was removed from Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals after being hit by a pitch, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. He struck out in his other at-bat earlier in the day.
The Mets have suffered some attrition at the catching position of late, as Tomas Nido was scratched ahead of Friday's game against the Marlins with a foot contusion. Nido should be back in the lineup within a few days, but Joseph's timeline to return will be murkier until the Mets have a chance to evaluate him.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Caleb Joseph: Signs with Mets
Joseph signed a split contract with the Mets on Thursday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
James McCann is locked in as the Mets' starting catcher, but Joseph could at least push Tomas Nido and his .553 career OPS for the backup job. Joseph has just a .621 OPS himself, so he's unlikely to have much fantasy relevance even if injuries open up unexpected playing time.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Clears waivers
Joseph cleared waivers Tuesday and is now back on the Blue Jays' taxi squad, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Joseph was designated for assignment Friday, but he'll remain in the organization as an emergency option at catcher with just under two weeks remaining in the regular season. The 34-year-old should serve in a depth role even if he's needed on the major-league roster again this year.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Removed from roster

Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Contract selected Saturday
Joseph's contract was selected by the Blue Jays on Saturday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Joseph will join the Blue Jays' 40-man roster to serve as catching depth after Reese McGuire was optioned to the team's alternate camp Saturday. The 34-year-old saw limited action with the Diamondbacks last season. Danny Jansen should see the bulk of the playing time behind the dish for the Blue Jays.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Joins taxi squad
The Blue Jays assigned Joseph to their taxi squad Thursday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Though he missed out on the Opening Day roster, Joseph's status as the only catcher on the taxi squad implies that he's viewed as the third backstop behind Danny Jansen and Reese McGuire. He'll need to be added to the 40-man roster if he receives a promotion to the big club at any point in the 60-game slate.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Part of 60-man pool
Joseph will be a part of the Blue Jays' 60-man roster.
The 34-year-old was non-tendered by the Diamondbacks in the offseason after appearing in just 20 games for the major-league squad last year. However, he joined the Blue Jays as a non-roster invitee in January and went 4-for-17 with one RBI and five strikeouts this spring. He could compete for a reserve role on the big-league team once play resumes, but he's more likely to serve as organizational depth for the club.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Latches on with Toronto
Joseph signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Sunday, Jamie Campbell of Sportsnet reports. The deal includes an invitation to spring training.
Joseph spent the 2019 season bouncing between the majors and minors, appearing in 20 games for the Diamondbacks and slashing .211/.250/.263 in 41 plate appearances. He'll compete for a spot on Toronto's Opening Day roster, though he seems more likely to fill an organizational depth role behind Reese McGuire and Danny Jansen.... See More ... See Less
Caleb Joseph: Non-tendered by Arizona
Joseph was non-tendered by the Diamondbacks on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The 33-year-old backstop has been worth -0.4 fWAR in 321 plate appearances over the last two seasons and has a career .223 average. He may have to settle for a minor-league deal if he wants to play in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Returns to Diamondbacks
Joseph was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Optioned to Triple-A
Joseph was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.
Joseph spent the last couple weeks with the Diamondbacks while fellow backstop Alex Avila was on the injured list, but he will head back to Reno now that Avila is returning to action Friday.

Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Back in big leagues
Joseph was recalled by the Diamondbacks on Friday, Jack Magruder of The Sports Xchange reports.
Joseph will replace Alex Avila, who landed on the injured list with a calf strain in a corresponding move. The Diamondbacks have heavily rotated their catchers all season, so Joseph could potentially see a fairly even split behind the plate with Carson Kelly.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Booted to minors
Joseph was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Thursday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Joseph has struggled to a .176 average with two RBI over nine contests this season, so he'll head to the minors in an attempt to find his swing. The Diamondbacks recalled Tim Locastro from Triple-A in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Back on bench
Joseph is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Pirates.
Joseph picked up his fourth start of the season in Wednesday's 11-2 win and turned in his best offensive showing to date, recording two hits in four at-bats. Despite the solid day at the dish, Joseph is unlikely to pick up regular playing time anytime soon as the clear No. 3 option at catcher behind Carson Kelly and John Ryan Murphy.... See More ...
