PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – When the Phillies traded outfielder Hunter Pence last July, the key piece they got in return from San Francisco was catcher Tommy Joseph. After spending the end of last season with AA Reading, the 21-year-old Joseph is currently adjusting to life at AAA as the youngest member of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
“I’m hanging in there,” Joseph tells KYW Newsradio. “Obviously it’s a tough thing to do, but I’m enjoying it. Great coaches and great teammates around me that have helped me come into this organization and helped me relax and kind of play my game. All you can do is keep working hard and playing hard.”
