Diamondbacks sign C Joseph to one-year deal


Diamondbacks sign C Joseph to one-year deal

The Arizona Diamondbacks signed former Baltimore Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph to a one-year contract and placed right-hander Taijuan Walker on the 60-day injured list, the team announced Wednesday. Joseph, 32, batted .224 with 31 homers and 122 RBIs over 402 games with the Orioles from 2014-18.

He ranks ninth among active catchers in caught-stealing percentage (29.4 percent). He also tied for the major league lead among backstops in 2018 with 11 double plays. Walker, 26, started three games for Arizona last season before undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow on April 25. He is expected to be out until mid-July.

In six seasons with the Seattle Mariners (2013-16) and Diamondbacks (2017-18), Walker is 31-31 with a 3.96 ERA and 477 strikeouts in 527 1/3 innings. --Field Level Media
