Joseph is a catcher that has a chance to be a pretty good hitter, decent defensively, and a very good thrower. That's a lot to like. He very well could turn out to be just average, but a catcher with his kind of ability is too much to overlook.
Pettibone is ranked that high due to his proximity to the bigs and his high floor. He looks like a fixture at the back end of the rotation with the ability to be an innings eater. Don't think he'll ever wow anyone but just be a solid starter. The organization thinks highly of him as well. Martin's upside is definitely higher, but there is some risk that he might not be able to stick as a starter.
From what I heard, in the BA chat, they said Wright might be a bullpen guy. This year in AA will be telling of his future.
