Orioles | Caleb Joseph to DL

Tue, 31 May 2016 11:43:18 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Caleb Joseph (testicle) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a testicular injury suffered in the team's game Monday, May 30. C Francisco Pena was recalled from Class AAA Norfolk on Tuesday, May 31, in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph's injury will create a small hole in the Oriole catching corps for the foreseeable future. Look for Matt Wieters to move from a DH role to one where he serves more as a catcher. Pena does not have a ton of fantasy value, except maybe in DFS leagues if he starts and hits. Otherwise, leave him alone.

Orioles | Caleb Joseph taken to hospital

Mon, 30 May 2016 15:32:38 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Caleb Joseph (groin) was taken to the hospital as a precaution after the team's game Monday, May 30, against the Boston Red Sox. He was hit by a foul ball earlier in the contest.

Fantasy Tip: Considering he didn't have to depart during the ballgame and was able to wait until afterwards to get to the hospital, this doesn't seem like something that will sideline him. He's not worth owning in any format anyway with his depressing .182/.239/.212 line. However, if he does have to miss any games, Matt Wieters would get a boost.

Orioles | Baltimore resting three players

Mon, 30 May 2016 08:48:49 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters, 3B Pedro Alvarez and OF Joey Rickard are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Monday, May 30. OF Nolan Reimold will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup. 2B Ryan Flaherty will start at third base and is batting eighth, while C Caleb Joseph will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold is hitting only .167 over the last seven days but does have a .297 batting average this season. He should still have some fantasy value and can be an option for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues. Flaherty and Joseph should be avoided in all fantasy leagues because they have struggled at the plate.

Orioles | Matt Wieters resting Friday

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:40:47 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 27. C Caleb Joseph is catching and is hitting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph will leave the yard every now and then, but he's hitting only .190 (11-for-58) on the year with no homers or RBI. It's safe to say he's one to avoid in daily setups tonight.

Orioles | Matt Wieters resting Sunday

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:56:45 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Sunday, May 15. C Caleb Joseph will start behind the plate and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: It's not surprising that Wieters is out of the lineup after catching back-to-back games Friday and Saturday. Joseph is 4-for-14 over the past two weeks after getting off to a slow start but has not driven in a run in 47 at-bats this year and is not a recommended option Sunday.

Orioles | Matt Wieters not playing

Thu, 12 May 2016 11:56:24 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 12. C Caleb Joseph is behind the plate and is hitting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph is a weak-hitting second catcher for the O's who only has nine hits in 43 at-bats (.209) this year. Pelfrey has been a very hittable pitcher this year, but Joseph still profiles as a low-end daily selection at catcher.
