SAN FRANCISCO -- The A's are expected to select the contract of second baseman Corban Joseph from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Joseph was pulled from Tuesday's Triple-A game against the Omaha Storm Chasers and received hugs and handshakes from his teammates.

Joseph is having a phenomenal season for Las Vegas. The 30-year-old is slashing .371/.421/.585 with 13 home runs, 35 doubles, and 73 RBI in 97 games. He ranks third in the Pacific Coast League in batting average, second in doubles, and fifth in OPS.

Joseph has previously spent a little time in the big leagues, most recently last year with Baltimore. The left-handed hitter went 4-for-18 with a double and three RBI. He has five career hits in 24 at-bats.

Joseph figures to get an opportunity at second base, especially if Jurickson Profar continues to struggle offensively and defensively. The A's will have to make a corresponding move to make room for Joseph on both the 25-man and 40-man rosters.
