Prospect Uniformed: Phillies Catcher Tommy Joseph in Every Minor League Uniform He’s Worn
Tommy Joseph is not the next Buster Posey, but at least now he’s no longer blocked by Buster.
If you recall, Joseph — the No. 3 Phillies prospect and the No. 8 overall catching prospect in baseball entering the 2013 season — was involved in last summer’s Hunter Pence-to-the-Giants trade. As a result, the 21-year-old backtop merely switched Eastern League clubs, going from Richmond to Reading. And after a full year at Triple-A Lehigh Valley beginning this spring, he could be ready for a full-time, big-league job in ’14. That would never have occurred had he stayed in the Giants organization and behind Posey, one of the game’s greats.
