Minor League Spotlight: Caleb Martin Joseph's Hot Bat For The Bowie Baysox

My minor leagues spotlight this week comes in the form of Caleb Martin Joseph, first baseman for the Bowie Baysox.

In his last ten games, Joseph has a .233 batting average, ten hits, five of them being home runs and eight RBIs. On the season he has a .278 batting average, ten homeruns and 36 RBIs.

Joseph was selected by the Orioles in the seventh round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft out of Libscomb University. In his junior year at Libscomb, Joseph had a .261 batting average, 17 home runs and a .615 slugging percentage. Joseph was also named to the Atlantic Sun All-Conference Team and was named MVP of the conference tournament that year.

In 2010 and 2012 he was awarded Organization All-Star, and in 2011 he was awarded Eastern League Mid-Season All-Star. While he currently plays first base for the Baysox, Joseph’s original position was catcher.
