Least Valuable Position Player

More from That Balls Outta Here

Tommy Joseph

Joseph recorded his first hit in Saturday’s barrage against the Washington Nationals and hopefully, it allows the second year first baseman to regain some confidence.

Joseph ended the first week of the season hitting just .118 with seven strikeouts. That means that Joseph has struck out in 41.1% of his seventeen qualified at-bats to this point.

There is little pressure behind Joseph at first base to this point and it can be expected that Joseph will have quite a long leash to get things fixed up.

Least Valuable Pitcher

Couple that with the fact that he gave up a pinch hit home run to an opposing relief pitcher and you have the perfect formula for the first LVP Award of the season.
