Joe was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.
Joe was sent to the minors at the beginning of June, but he'll return to the major-league roster after Matt Adams (elbow) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move. The 28-year-old will likely take on a depth role for Colorado going forward.
The Rockies optioned Joe to Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday.
Joe had been relegated to a backup role after CJ Cron returned in mid-April, serving as a mostly ineffective pinch hitter. He yields his roster spot to Alan Trejo, whom the Rockies recalled Tuesday.
Joe is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres, AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.
After making his sixth consecutive start at first base in Monday's series opener, Joe will close out the three-game set in San Diego with back-to-back days on the bench. Joe's move to a reserve role coincides with the return of top first baseman C.J. Cron, who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday. With Cron back in action, Joe's brief run of fantasy relevance in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues appears to have come to an end.
Joe went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in Sunday's 7-6 loss to Cincinnati.
The 28-year-old contributed an RBI double to complete Colorado's five-run rally in the fourth inning. Joe has reached base safely in nine of the 10 games he's appeared in since joining the major-league roster May 7. While he has yet to hit a home run, he's posted four RBI and two runs scored across 38 plate appearances. He's seen the majority of the playing time at first base in the last week with C.J. Cron (back) still out.
Joe is out of the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Joe had started each of the past three games at first base in place of C.J. Cron (back), going 2-for-8 with four walks over that stretch. The left-handed Matt Adams will get the nod at first base for Game 1, and he may end up filling the large side of a platoon at the position with the right-handed Joe until Cron is ready to return from the 10-day injured list.
Joe's contract was selected by the Rockies on Friday.
The 28-year-old has appeared in just eight MLB games, all with the Giants in 2019. He went 1-for-15 in limited action, though he does own a strong .298/.414/.500 line in 154 games at the Triple-A level. He'll likely serve as a depth option during his time with the team. Jose Mujica was optioned in a corresponding move.
Joe went 2-for-2 with a three-run home run, two additional runs and two walks in Tuesday's spring win over the Reds.
Joe is in camp as a non-roster invitee and had a somewhat slow start to spring training, but he's now homered in each of the past two games while reaching base five times in six plate appearances across that span. The 28-year-old could have to settle for a minor-league role to start the year but could serve as an option to provide outfield depth at some point in 2021.
Joe signed with the Rockies as a non-roster invitee Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Joe underwent surgery for testicular cancer in March, and he was declared free of cancer in July. The 28-year-old was a non-roster invitee with the Dodgers last season, and he'll appear in major-league spring training once again with Colorado. Joe made his major-league debut in 2019 and could appear in the big leages at some point in 2021.
Joe is cancer-free, according to the agency that represents him.
He underwent surgery for testicular cancer in March of 2020 and is fortunately free of cancer, which is excellent news. Joe is not part of the Dodgers' 60-man roster so we won't see him in game action until 2021 at the earliest.
Joe underwent surgery for testicular cancer Tuesday, the outfielder announced on his personal Instagram page.
The surgery explains why Joe left camp for unknown reasons back in late February. Joe says that the issue was caught early and is curable. He'll be recovering for the foreseeable future.
Joe has left camp to attend to a personal issue, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Joe, a non-roster invitee, should be considered out indefinitely. The 27-year-old broke camp with San Francisco in 2019 after being selected in the Rule 5 draft, though he was given just 15 at-bats before the Giants made up their mind not to keep him around. In 49 games for Triple-A Oklahoma City, Joe hit .294/.385/.494.
Joe cleared waivers and was returned to the Dodgers' organization Saturday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Joe was given 15 at-bats before the Giants made up their mind not to keep him around. He managed just a single hit. Joe played 49 games for Triple-A Oklahoma City last season, hitting .294/.385/.494.
Joe was designated for assignment by the Giants on Monday.
Joe failed to capitalize on his limited opportunities this season, managing just a single hit in 15 at-bats. As a Rule 5 pick, he'll have to be offered back to the Dodgers if he clears waivers. The move makes room on the roster for Tyler Austin, acquired in a trade from the Twins on Monday.
Joe is starting Friday's game against San Diego, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
As expected, Joe will draw another start in left field with the Giants set to face another lefty. He went 0-for-1 but reached base on a walk during Thursday's season opener.
Joe started and went 0-for-1 with a walk in Thursday's Opening Day loss to San Diego.
Joe got the nod in left field against a southpaw, but was lifted for Gerardo Parra once the Padres went to a right-handed reliever. This deployment signals a platoon situation for the rookie and his veteran counterpart. That said, the Giants are slated to face two more lefties Friday and Saturday, so Joe could find his name in the starting lineup for both contests.
Joe will be present on San Francisco's Opening Day roster, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Joe was acquired by the Giants from the Reds last week but managed to make enough of an impression to grab a spot on the 25-man roster. The 26-year-old provides unique versatility, as he should serve as the No. 3 catcher behind Buster Posey and Erik Kratz, and can also play both corner infield and outfield spots. It remains unclear how much playing time awaits Joe, but he'll get his first taste of the majors after slashing .299/.408/.527 between Double-A and Triple-A last season.
Joe went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Monday's exhibition loss to the Athletics.
Joe started in left field and finished the contest at first base, which could be a preview of his utility role this season. The Rule 5 pick needs to stick on the 25-man roster in order to remain a Giant, and it's looking like that will happen as we near the start of the regular season. Joe can play both corner infield and outfield spots, and can even serve as an emergency catcher. The 26-year-old slashed .299/.408/.527 over two levels in 2018, which makes him an intriguing player to watch in deep leagues in the event injuries or ineffectiveness opens up a window of playing time.
Joe was traded to the Giants from the Reds in exchange for pitcher Jordan Johnson, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Joe was a Rule 5 draft pick for the Reds, and was formerly in the Dodgers organization. He appeared both at Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City in 2018, hitting a combined .299/.408/.527. He'll have to remain on the major-league roster, or else he will be offered back to the Dodgers.
Though Joe, a Rule 5 pick this offseason, spent the first week of spring training at catcher, he hasn't played there in a game yet this week, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Joe has played first base, second base and third base so far, and will get a chance to catch soon. "We are going to look for an opportunity to have him catch, but not quite yet," manager David Bell said. "We don't think it's fair yet given all the activity we've had him doing up to this point. I think after, maybe, he takes a day or two here to catch his breath, we'll pick a day that he will be behind the plate in the next week or so."
Joe will focus on catching during spring training, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The Rule 5 pick has experience at first base, second base, third base and outfield from his time in the minors. However, as was initially speculated, the biggest draw for Cincinnati was his recent work at catcher. Joe will look to crack the Opening Day roster as a third catcher for the Reds, and his additional defensive versatility won't hurt his case. He'll need to impress with the bat against major-league pitching, however. Joe has just 188 plate appearances above Double-A to his name.
