Caleb Joseph, former catcher for the Lipscomb Bisons, signed a contract Friday afternoon with the Baltimore Orioles. He has been assigned to the Aberdeen Ironbirds, A Class A minor league affiliate for the Orioles located in Aberdeen, Md.
Joseph, who had planned to spend at least part of the summer as a bullpen catcher for the Nashville Sounds, picked up his equipment at Greer Stadium. He is expected to join Aberdeen Saturday for workouts.
Joseph, who had completed his junior year with the Bisons, was drafted Friday morning in the seventh round of the Major League First-Year Player Draft.
