Royals Moves: Coleman off DL, Gio Up, Joseph and Brooks Down

The Kansas City Royals have made a few roster moves prior to the series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays in activating reliever Louis Coleman off the disabled list and optioning pitcher Aaron Brooks back to Omaha. That move was expected, but in the moderately surprising move of the day, the Royals have recalled infielder Johnny Giavotella and corresponded that move by sending Donnie...

Royals Option Danny Duffy and Donnie Joseph

As the season gets closer, the Kansas City Royals continued to craft their 25 man roster that will take the field against the Detroit Tigers on Opening Day on March 31. After some somewhat controversial statements regarding the future of Danny Duffy and his 2014 role, the Royals have decided that he will start the season in the minors along with Donnie Joseph. Additionally, Cory...

Is Donnie Joseph for real, or a spring mirage?

You can’t take too much stock in Spring Training performances. For instance, there’s left-handed reliever Donnie Joseph. In two one-inning relief appearances, Joseph faced and struck out six batters, which is impressive. Of course the batters he faced were AAA level players and five of them were left-handed. But if a pitcher is going to make a good impression in Spring Training...

Reds acquire Jonathan Broxton for JC Sulbaran AND Donnie Joseph

Rumor has it that JC Sulbaran was traded for Jonathan Broxton. I just don’t get it. Broxton has a nice ERA, but he walks 3.5 guys per 9 innings (below average) and strikes out hardly anyone with his 6.3 strikeouts per 9 innings (below average). Those aren’t the types of guys you give up actual talent for. He isn’t an upgrade over JJ Hoover, who you already have. In fact, I...

Reds top prospects update: Donnie Joseph can pitch a little

Billy Hamilton has cooled off a bit, but he still has 40 stolen bases and 37 runs in 41 games. Tony Cingrani and Donnie Joseph are throwing the baseball very well. Joseph looks like a guy who could see a little time in Cincinnati later this year, as he is looking nearly unhittable so far. Other than that there's not a whole lot about which to write home. An honorable mention...

State of the Farm – Relief Pitching

Donnie Joseph leads the way with this group of players now that Brad Boxberger is with a new team. Joseph has some of the best stuff of the relievers with an above-average fastball and a plus slider from the left side. He had put up dominating numbers coming up until the 2011 season when his inability to control his slider finally caught up with him. The pitch has very good movement...

Arizona Fall League Pitch F/X – Reds Pitchers

Yesterday I decided to dive into some Pitch F/X data for the pitchers out in the Arizona Fall League. I am going to look at each guy individually, then do a little comparison of them all at the end. Brad Boxberger – RHP – Top Velocity (95.2 MPH) Boxberger has worked with three pitches so far. From the 1st base view, we can see that the pitches all look very similar until about...
