AFL: Joseph, Whitley Get Desert Dogs Off To 2-0 Start

2011 Thunder players 2B Corban Joseph and RP Chase Whitley are playing in the Arizona Fall League

Corban Joseph and Chase Whitley are among the players who have the Phoenix Desert Dogs off to a 2-0 start in Arizona Fall League play.

Joseph went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer, two runs scored and a walk in his AFL debut against Mesa yesterday.

Whitley made his first appearance today, and escaped damage despite allowing two hits, a walk and a hit batsman in an inning and a third.  He also struck out two.

Both players were on the Trenton Thunder this season, with Joseph staying in Double-A the whole season and Whitley having joined the team following a mid-season promotion from High-A Tampa.

Ronnier Mustelier (2 games; 3-for-7, 1 RBI), Rob Segedin (1 game; 1-for-4, 2 runs scored) and Danny Burawa (1 appearance; 1-0, 5.40 ERA, 1 2/3 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K) are the other Yankee farmhands to have played so far for the Desert Dogs.
