Hard Hittin’ Mark Whiten Memorial Player of the Week: Caleb Joseph?

bbaoriolesbluejays

Caleb Joseph hammered the ever loving piss out of the baseball this past week. He hit the ball so hard so frequently, we’ve brought back one of our favorite features from the past on the blog.

Caleb Joseph is a 28 year-old rookie catcher who entered the week with three career home runs. He’s hitting .227 on the season and the chances are if you were in a pay phone booth and he knocked on the window and told you he needed to use it, you wouldn’t realize it was a big league player and you would keep talking.

Here’s what he did this past week:

8 for 18 (.444), Five home runs, nine RBI, a double, 1.778 OPS and that’s without anyone bothering to walk him.

That was career games 49 to 53 in the career of Caleb Joseph. He’s unlikely to ever have a run again in his career where he homers in five straight (he went 1 for 4 without homering today). Hell, he’s unlikely to ever appear on this blog again. But for what he did this past week, he’s brought back the HHMWMPOY. And it’s back to stay.
