Infielder Corban Joseph was optioned to Triple-A camp this weekend. He spent 2011 with Double-A Trenton hitting .277 in 131 games, leading the team in hits (138) runs batted in (58). With that kind of success it was hard to imagine him returning to Trenton, despite a need to improve defensively.
The pressure is always there for any young player. He has to prove himself, no matter what. But when the injury bug continues to attack, making it to the majors gets tougher.
