Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Removed from roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph was designated for assignment Friday.

Joseph went 1-for-8 with a homer during his brief time as Toronto's backup catcher. The team will turn to prospect Alejandro Kirk as one of its two catching options going forward, leaving Joseph surplus to requirements.

Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Smacks first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph went 1-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Red Sox.

Joseph drew the start behind the plate and took advantage by leading off the third inning with a solo home run. It was his first long ball of the season, as he was recalled by the Blue Jays on Saturday. He should serve as the team's backup catcher behind Danny Jansen.

Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Contract selected Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Joins taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Part of 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Caleb Joseph: Latches on with Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Caleb Joseph: Non-tendered by Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Returns to Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

Joseph had a couple stretches in the majors this season but spent the bulk of the year with Reno, where he had a .265/.324/.481 slash line in 48 games. He'll provide catching depth behind Carson Kelly and Alex Avila.

June 29, 2019 01:40 PM
Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. Joseph figures to be the top option next time Arizona needs to add a catcher from the minor-league ranks.

June 14, 2019 03:28 PM
Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Booted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Earns call to bigs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Wednesday.

Joseph, who owns a career .224/.271/.353 slash line across parts of five big-league seasons (402 games), will serve as the team's third catcher while Alex Avila (quadriceps) is on the shelf.

March 22, 2019 12:32 PM
Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

Joseph had been in the conversation for a backup catcher spot, but he has options remaining, so he'll lose out for now. John Ryan Murphy will be the Diamondbacks' third catcher should the team elect to keep three backstops, as they've preferred to do recently.

Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Launches homer Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Sunday's game against the Reds.

That was all the offense the Diamondbacks mustered in a 3-2 win. Joseph is hitting .353 (6-for-17) with a pair of homers and six RBI this spring. He's competing to be one of the three catchers Arizona is expected to carry on its roster.

February 13, 2019 01:40 PM
Diamondbacks' Caleb Joseph: Reaches deal with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph signed a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Joseph will join a crowded Arizona catcher picture that already includes offseason pickup Carson Kelly and holdovers Alex Avila and John Ryan Murphy. It's likely that the Diamondbacks will only carry three backstops into Opening Day, so Joseph won't be guaranteed a spot with the big club out of camp despite possessing a 40-man roster spot.

Caleb Joseph: Cut loose by Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph wasn't tendered a contract by the Orioles for the 2019 season.

Joseph will hit the open market after hitting .219 with three home runs and 17 RBI over 82 games with Baltimore in 2018.

September 21, 2018 03:24 PM
Orioles' Caleb Joseph: Out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Joseph will head to the bench for the fourth time in the last five games as Austin Wynns grabs another start behind the plate. The Orioles have rotated heavily at catcher, although Wynns appears to be taking over duties as the primary option.

September 19, 2018 03:21 PM
Orioles' Caleb Joseph: On bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Joseph will sit for the third time in four games. Austin Wynns will get the call behind the plate.
