Player Outlook
Connor Joe got his first significant chance in the majors outside of Coors Field and things largely went well, as he maintained a 107 wRC+ and .332 wOBA across 472 plate appearances. His performance wasn't quite as smooth as that number would suggest, as he struggled through the middle part of the campaign after getting off to a hot start. That began to cost him playing time, though the season-ending injury to Andrew McCutchen and departures of both Carlos Santana and Ji-Man Choi gave Joe a reprieve. He took advantage by slashing a respectable .256/.345/.422 across 207 plate appearances in the second half of the season. That gives Joe a credible case to begin the 2024 season a starter in the Pittsburgh lineup, but he's likely to begin the season in a short-side platoon role with Rowdy Tellez at first base while also potentially picking up some plate appearances at DH and the outfield.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Smacks sixth homer

    Joe went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and two runs scored Tuesday against the Brewers. Joe returned to the lineup after sitting Monday and has started nine of Pittsburgh's 12 games in May. He's hit .294 with three home runs, seven runs scored and seven RBI in that span, and he lifted his sixth long ball of the season Monday. Joe should continue to get regular run at both first base and in right field as one of the Pirates' more productive hitters.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Back on bench Monday

    Joe is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers. Joe isn't quite an everyday player for the Pirates, but he's been one of the more productive hitters in a struggling lineup this season and is gradually starting to earn steadier playing time versus right-handed pitching. He'll take a seat against Brewers righty Colin Rea in the series opener in Milwaukee, however, as the Pirates trot out a starting outfield of Bryan Reynolds, Michael Taylor and Jack Suwinski from left to right. Meanwhile, Rowdy Tellez will draw the start at first base and Andrew McCutchen will serve as Pittsburgh's designated hitter.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Delivers extra-inning HR

    Joe went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored during Sunday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Cubs. Joe spearheaded the Pirates' comeback effort, plating Oneil Cruz on a leadoff homer in the bottom of the 10th inning. However, his long ball wasn't enough, as Pittsburgh trailed by three entering the frame. Joe has gone yard in back-to-back games, bringing his season total up to five homers in 134 plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Smacks key homer

    Joe went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run Saturday against the Cubs. Joe lifted a three-run home run in the third inning, his fourth long ball of the campaign. He's hit well overall this season, which has helped him move from a short-side platoon role to a role as a near-everyday player. Joe has started eight of Pittsburgh's last 10 games, filling in for Rowdy Tellez at first base against lefties and for Michael Taylor in the outfield against righties.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Earns fifth consecutive start

    Joe will start in right field and bat cleanup in Wednesday's game against the Angels. Joe will be included in the lineup for the fifth game in a row, with the 31-year-old having made three starts at first base and two in right field. He should be a mainstay in the lineup against southpaws as a short-side platoon mate at first base for the lefty-hitting Rowdy Tellez, and Joe has made a strong case to see steady playing time against right-handed pitching as a corner outfielder. Joe enters Wednesday's contest with a team-best 131 wRC+ on the season, while Michael Taylor owns a 53 wRC+ and would seemingly be most at risk of moving out of a near-everyday role, despite being the Pirates' best defensive outfielder.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Launches third homer

    Joe went 2-for-4 with a solo home run during Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Oakland. Joe tagged Alex Wood for a solo shot in the first inning, marking his third long ball in 100 plate appearances this season. He's on pace to exceed his career-high home run total of 11, which he achieved in 472 plate appearances last season. During his last five games, Joe is batting 6-for-19 (.316) with a pair of doubles and Tuesday's home run.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Starting Sunday

    Joe is starting in right field and batting in the leadoff spot for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. Joe returns to the lineup for Sunday's contest after not starting in the first two games of the series. Joe is slashing .288/.391/.475 with two home runs and 12 RBI to start the season.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Takes seat Friday

    Joe is out of the lineup for Friday's game versus Boston. Joe is 4-for-21 over his past seven games and will take a seat for Friday's series opener. Jack Suwinski, Michael Taylor and Bryan Reynolds will start from left to right in the outfield.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Cooling off

    Joe went 0-for-3 with a walk Wednesday against the Mets. Joe got off to an excellent start to the season, which helped him earn more playing time than expected while splitting time between right field and first base. He's been in the lineup for six of Pittsburgh's last seven games but has now gone just 4-for-22 in that span. Joe will likely need to turn things around quickly to maintain his playing time against righties, with Edward Olivares being his primary competition for plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Launches long ball in victory

    Joe went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, an additional run and two walks in Thursday's 7-4 win over Washington. Joe didn't play Wednesday with the Nationals starting a right-hander, but he was back in the lineup one day later despite Pittsburgh facing another righty (Josiah Gray). That decision paid dividends for the Pirates when Joe launched a two-run homer in the fifth inning to give the team a 7-1 advantage. Joe also drew two free passes in the contest and has more walks (five) than strikeouts (four) this season. He's had a strong start to the campaign, slashing .346/.469/.615 with five extra-base hits, nine runs and seven RBI through 32 plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Batting leadoff Thursday

    Joe is starting in right field and batting leadoff for Thursday's opener against the Marlins. With southpaw Jesus Luzardo on the bump, Joe not only gets the call in right field over Jack Suwinski but is also perched atop the batting order. The setup makes him a sneaky DFS play Thursday.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Avoids arbitration with Pirates

    The Pirates and Joe avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.125 million contract Thursday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. It's a nice salary bump for Joe, who was eligible for arbitration for the first time. The 31-year-old put up a .760 OPS with 11 homers over 133 games for Pittsburgh last season. He should see semi-regular duty again in 2024.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Clubs homer in win

    Joe went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run, a double and three total runs scored in Wednesday's 13-7 win over the Cubs. Joe opened September with just five hits across 13 games before breaking out of the slump Wednesday. This was his first multi-hit effort since Aug. 24. The 31-year-old is up to 11 homers, 40 RBI, 58 runs scored and 28 doubles through 125 contests this season, all of which are season highs. He's also logged three stolen bases with a .236/.330/.416 slash line across 440 plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Heads to bench Sunday

    Joe is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Joe has gone just 3-for-36 over his past 10 games and will take a seat Sunday for the third time in Pittsburgh's last four contests. Alfonso Rivas will start at first base and bat eighth in the series finale.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Absent from lineup

    Joe is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Brewers, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Joe has been the Pirates' regular first baseman of late but will begin this one on the bench. Alfonso Rivas will get the start at first base and bat seventh.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Three doubles, four runs in rout

    Joe went 3-for-4 with three doubles, an RBI and four runs scored in Monday's 11-1 win over the Cardinals. Joe provided a jolt of offense Monday, ripping doubles in the fourth, sixth and eighth innings while crossing the plate four times. The 31-year-old is now slashing .263/.364/.474 with seven doubles, three homers, five RBI and 15 runs scored across 76 second-half plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Hitting streak reaches five games

    Joe went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Brewers. Joe hit one of three home runs on the day for the Pirates, with his being a solo shot to left field to begin the fourth. Joe has just two home runs since the beginning of June but has now hit safely in five straight games while picking up an extra-base hit two days in a row. Joe remains in a short-side platoon role at first base with Alfonso Rivas while occasionally picking up starts at DH like he did Sunday.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Gets third straight start

    Joe will start at first base and bat leadoff in Wednesday's game against the Tigers, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Joe has now picked up three consecutive starts at first base, serving as the Pirates' leadoff man in two of those contests when Pittsburgh has opposed left-handed starting pitchers. With Carlos Santana and Ji-Man Choi having recently been traded away, Joe has a clearer path to playing time at first base, but it's unclear if he'll get a look in a near-everyday role or if he'll have to settle for the short side of a platoon at the position with the lefty-hitting Alfonso Rivas, whom the Pirates acquired from the Padres on Tuesday.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Stuck in short-side platoon

    Joe went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Guardians. Joe has slipped into a short-side platoon role since the start of July, as he's started only three of 14 games. That's due in part to the promotion of Henry Davis, but Joe has also slumped considerably. Tuesday's homer was his first since May 30, and since June 3 he has hit only .218 with a 28.6 percent strikeout rate across 87 at-bats.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: On bench again Sunday

    Joe is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Miami, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. Joe finds himself on the bench Sunday after he started Pittsburgh's previous six games. Josh Palacios, Jack Suwinski and Henry Davis will start from left to right in the outfield.
