Phillies prospect Tommy Joseph healthy for spring training
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Phillies catcher and highly-touted prospect Tommy Joseph is healthy for the beginning of spring training.
Via the Philadelphia Inquirer, Joseph reported to Clearwater, Fla. a month early on Jan. 15, after gaining medical clearance, with the purpose of preparing for baseball's preseason. Joseph underwent a season-ending surgical procedure on his wrist,which ended his season early a year ago.
Joseph appeared in 21 games with the Phillies' Double-A affiliate Reading Fightin Phils and posted a .282 batting average with five home runs and 19 RBI. He is full-go for the start of spring training.
“It was nice to start doing things again,” Joseph said. “I’m in spring training with no restrictions or anything like that. Nothing should stop me.”
Phillies GM on catching situation: 'We're short there'

|(2/5/15) The Phillies enter spring training with a severe lack of depth behind starting catcher Carlos Ruiz, who is 36 and could be trade bait to a contender at the July deadline, reports Philly.com. "We're short there," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. admitted.
Cameron Rupp is the current backup. He batted .183 in 60 at-bats last year.
Tommy Joseph is the only other catcher on the 40-man roster. The highly-touted 23-year-old prospect is coming back from August wrist surgery and might start the season at Double-A. He took his first batting practice a couple weeks ago.
“We’d be in trouble if Chooch goes down, so we have to continue to keep an eye on that,” Amaro said recently. “We’ve had some dialogue with some clubs about possible trades to add depth there, too. We’ll see. I think that may be something that gets more resolved in spring training than anything else.”

|(7/11/14) Phillies catching prospect Tommy Joseph made his return from wrist surgery Thursday, for the Gulf Coast League Phillies.

Tommy Joseph expected to start year at Double-A
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/26/14) Phillies catcher prospect Tommy Joseph is expected to head back to Double-A to open the 2014 season after pretty much missing the entire 2013 season due to a concussion.
However, minor-league director Joe Jordan said Joseph will remain at catcher after coming out of a four-week stint in winter ball with "no issues," according to The Morning Call.
"I think right now the right thing to do is for [Joseph] to start back at Double-A and play and see where it takes us," Jordan said.
