Connor Joe was selected by Pirates in supplemental first round (39th overall) of the 2014 draft out of San Diego.
Connor Joe was a catcher in college, where his bat played well. But as a pro he has moved position twice: two first base in 2015, and third base in 2016. He has a good bat that should hit for average, but probably not a lot of power. That lack of power is a bit of a problem for a corner infield prospect.
2016 was not a bad season. He his .277/.351/.392 with 5 HR for High-A, and was selected to the Florida State League All-Star game. The Pirates are sent him to play in the AZL this fall, but he struggled, hitting .172/.333/.276 with 1 HR.
He needs to find some more pop, or transition back to catcher. Still, at only 23 he has some time to put things together.
