Former Yankees IF Corban Joseph Signs With Braves

Another week and another former New York Yankees prospect has signed with the Atlanta Braves. This time it is former Yankees infield prospect Corban Joseph. Joseph has spent the last four seasons between the Double-A Trenton Thunder and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

This past season he played in 70 games for the RailRiders, where he owned a .268 average. Overall he owns a .278 batting average in the minors and a .167 batting average in the two games he played for the big club in 2013.

Joseph was originally a fourth round draft pick in 2008 and was once a top infield prospect for the Bronx Bombers. In 2010 he was rated the best defensive second baseman in the Florida State League. Recently he has been over shadowed by guys like Jose Pirela and Rob Refsnyder.

This is a good pick up for the Braves as it gives them some Triple-A depth and Joseph will get a better shot to make the majors.
