BUH BYE TO CORBAN JOSEPH
Corban Joseph was alot of fun to watch, and for a short time, Joseph was a call up in 2013 and there was alot of buzz surrounding him...mostly by Suzyn Waldman. I kid... people liked what Joseph offered. But now, something has happened.
It's being reported by Lou DiPetrio of the YESNetwork.com, that Corban Joseph has been released. Lou writes:
"The New York Yankees made a trio of minor-league transactions Wednesday, signing outfielder Chris Young to a minor-league deal and releasing two players - RHP Alfredo Aceves and infielder Corban Joseph - from their Triple-A contracts...
Joseph, 25, had made his MLB debut with the Yankees last year but missed most of the season with a shoulder injury and was outrighted off the 40-man roster last winter. He remained in the organization and spent all of 2014 with the RailRiders, hitting .268 with four homers and 28 RBI in 70 games.
The RailRiders also announced one other roster move Tuesday, reinstating outfielder Adonis Garcia from the disabled list to replace Joseph on the roster."
Shoulder injuries are tough and now you have to wonder if Joseph will end up somewhere down the road. He's a talented player and he's young. You gotta wish him well.
As you can see, Aceves was also released. We here at BYB have always liked Aceves, but the story for me personally was Joseph. A youngster with a tough break. Hopefully he'll bounce back somewhere.
