Connor Joe didn't make a huge impact on the Giants' organization -- at least not as much as the team made an impact on him. And now, he returns to the Dodgers' organization.
The 26-year-old was acquired in March from the Reds and held a lot of promise. Unfortunately, he started the season off without a hit until April 6. And while he was doused with a Powerade bath in celebration, he was DFA'd just two days later.
He recently cleared waivers and was returned to the Dodgers' organization.

Last season, with the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate, Joe hit .294/.385./494.
At the moment, it would appear Joe will stay in the minors for a while -- that's where he holds the most success. So don't anticipate any type of "reunion" in the near future. And as far as an impact goes, if Joe does get a chance with the Dodgers, it'll be because he had a sensational campaign in Triple-A. He appears to thrive hitting in the Pacific Coast League, but fails following the transitional process -- and many hitters do. He needs some more exposure and plate discipline.
