Player Profile: Joe Benson

I have one card of Joe Benson, from 2012 Topps Heritage.

Playing career: Outfielder Joe Benson was the second round draft pick of the Twins in 2006, and he slowly rose through the organization, playing 21 games at the major league level in 2011. However, the last two years he has struggled mightily at AA and AAA just to reach the Mendoza Line.

Where he is now: Signed with the Marlins organization for 2014.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is seventh when you type Joe Ben, between Joe Bendik, an MLS soccer player, and Joe Benigno Twitter, referring to a sports-talk-radio host. Another prominent Joe Benson is a classic rock DJ.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Kris Benson.
