INF Corban Joseph (Double-A Trenton):
Joesph isn’t a hot young high-ceiling prospect or anything, but he has emerged as a pretty dangerous hitter at Double-A over the past couple of years. Joseph played his first full year of Double-A ball in 2011, hitting a very solid .277/.353/.415 (.346 wOBA) in 564 plate appearances. He started this year on the disabled list after suffering a shoulder injury in spring training, but he’s back playing now, and he’s absolutely raking. Through his first 61 plate appearances he’s hitting a scorching .373/.475/.549, which translates to a .466 wOBA and a wRC+ of 197! It’s still not clear that the 23 year old Joseph has the power or defensive ability at second base to be a big league regular, but it would appear to be clear that he’s got Double-A pitching down after 733 total plate appearances there, and is definitely ready to move up to Triple-A.
RHRP Mark Montgomery (High-A Tampa):
Montgomery burst on the radar last season when the Yankees promoted him to Charleston after just four appearances for Staten Island.…
