Mets' Caleb Joseph: Sent to minors

Caleb Joseph adds some catching depth to the Mets’ system

While the Mets made their first real splash of the winter with the signing of James McCann, the team did not do as much to bolster their catching depth until last week, when they signed Caleb Joseph to a split-contract. While the details of the deal are not clear yet, the move is an important one for the Mets, as their catching depth is, at best, below average, especially with Ali Sanchez departing for the Cardinals.

Catcher Caleb Joseph Signed to a Split Contract

Joseph is a tremendous locker room personality and showed it during 2020 as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. He spent all but eight at-bats on the taxi squad with a home run as his only hit. Joseph spent his first five seasons with the Baltimore Orioles and was a stellar defender. He had 37 DRS and threw out at least 30% of base stealers in four of his five seasons. After his days in Baltimore ended, he moved on to the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2019.

Morosi: Mets Sign Catcher Caleb Joseph

While the New York Mets were busy during picture day down at Port St. Lucie, the front office was busy making yet another roster move ahead of the 2021 season. MLB Network‘s Jon Morosi reported earlier on Thursday that the Mets had signed free-agent catcher Caleb Joseph to a split contract. If this is indeed the type of contract New York signed Joseph to, it’ll mean the Mets need to put the backstop on the 40-man roster. For a squad that lacked depth in a number of areas throughout 2020, this seems to be another move to prevent those issues from popping up again — both at the major league and minor league level. This also comes on the heels of sending Ali Sanchez to the St. Louis Cardinals earlier this month.

Mets' Caleb Joseph: Signs with Mets

Joseph signed a split contract with the Mets on Thursday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports. James McCann is locked in as the Mets' starting catcher, but Joseph could at least push Tomas Nido and his .553 career OPS for the backup job. Joseph has just a .621 OPS himself, so he's unlikely to have much fantasy relevance even if injuries open up unexpected playing time.
