  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Returns to lineup

    Sosa (ankle) is starting Saturday against Pittsburgh, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Sosa didn't appear in the last two games while dealing with an ankle injury, but he'll start at shortstop and bat eighth during Saturday's matchup. Over his last five games, he's gone 5-for-15 with two runs, an RBI and two strikeouts.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Nursing ankle strain

    Sosa was diagnosed with a strained left ankle after leaving Wednesday's game against the Mets.

    Sosa went 1-for-2 and suffered the injury when he was caught attempting to steal second base during the fifth inning. It's interesting the injury was announced as a strain rather than a sprain, and he's been labeled day-to-day.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Takes seat Thursday

    Sosa (ankle) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mets.

    Sosa had started in four of the Cardinals' last five games, but his absence from the lineup comes as little surprise after he exited Wednesday's 11-4 loss with an ankle issue. Despite getting a solid dose of playing time lately, Sosa still looks to be behind Tommy Edman and Brendan Donovan in the pecking order in the middle infield when St. Louis is at full strength. Sosa was awarded the start at shortstop Wednesday because Edman was managing a sore calf, but Edman is back in the lineup Thursday.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Exits with injury

    Sosa was removed from Wednesday's game against the Mets with an apparent leg injury, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Sosa appeared to suffer the injury when he was caught stealing during the fifth inning, and he initially remained in the contest before being replaced in the field. He should be considered day-to-day since the specifics of the injury are unclear.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Sits after two straight starts

    Sosa is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Mets, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

    Sosa closed out the weekend with a second straight start at shortstop and went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in the Cardinals' 15-6 win over the Giants, but he'll give way to Brendan Donovan at shortstop for the afternoon game Tuesday. Given that Donovan bats from the left side, he could end up handling the larger side of a platoon at shortstop with the righty-hitting Sosa. Donovan has thus far done little to jeopardize his standing atop the depth chart, as he's provided a 1.015 OPS in his first 32 MLB plate appearances.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Activated from IL

    The Cardinals activated Sosa (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list Thursday.

    He'll assume the active roster spot of Kramer Robertson, who was optioned to Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move. Sosa has been on the IL since testing positive for the virus May 3, but he cleared all COVID-19-related protocols a week later and played in rehab games Tuesday and Wednesday at Double-A Springfield, going a combined 3-for-8 at the plate. Though he'll be on the bench for Thursday's game against the Orioles as he rejoins the Cardinals, Sosa should get the chance to vie for an everyday role at shortstop following the demotion of Paul DeJong to Triple-A earlier in the week. Brendan Donovan will pick up his third consecutive start at shortstop Thursday.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: On rehab assignment

    Sosa (illness) has cleared the COVID-19 protocol and is on a rehab assignment with Double-A Springfield, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Sosa's time with Springfield is likely to be short. He'll need a few reps to get back up to speed before rejoining St. Louis. Expect Sosa to compete for playing time at shortstop once he's officially activated.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Could return by Thursday

    Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said Sosa (illness) could return from the COVID-19-related injured list as early as Thursday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    After clearing MLB's COVID-19 protocols, Sosa reported to Double-A Springfield to begin a rehab assignment as he works to regain conditioning following a week-long quarantine. He's scheduled to play the full game Tuesday, and Mozeliak said Sosa will play all nine innings for Springfield again Wednesday. If all goes well after he plays on back-to-back days, Sosa may not only find himself activated from the IL, but also in position to step into an everyday role at shortstop. Brendan Donovan will pick up the start at shortstop Tuesday against the Orioles following the struggling Paul DeJong's demotion to Triple-A Memphis earlier in the day, but Mozeliak said Sosa will have "every chance" to supplant Donovan for the job once he's available, according to John Denton of MLB.com.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Placed on COVID-19 list

    The Cardinals placed Sosa on the COVID-19-related injury list Tuesday.

    St. Louis didn't specify a reason for Sosa's placement on the IL, which follows the pattern teams have frequently used when they send players to the COVID-19 IL. The Cardinals haven't revealed whether Sosa tested positive for the virus, making it unclear when he might be ready to return to the active roster. Juan Yepez was recalled from Triple-A Memphis as a replacement on the roster for Sosa.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Notches steal in loss

    Sosa went 0-for-2 with a hit-by-pitch and a stolen base in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    The Cardinals were only able to put four runners aboard Saturday against Merrill Kelly and a pair of relievers. Sosa has started to mount a playing-time challenge to primary shortstop Paul DeJong, though both infielders are below the Mendoza Line. Sosa is slashing .174/.269/.174 with three runs scored and a stolen base in 26 plate appearances, but all four of his hits have been singles. He'll need to show more at the dish to justify a larger role.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Threat to DeJong's starting role

    Sosa will start at shortstop and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Reds.

    Sosa will pick up his second start in three days with Paul DeJong mired in a 5-for-36 slump (.139 average) to begin the season. According to Katie Woo of The Athletic, manager Oliver Marmol said it's "too early" to say that DeJong's standing atop the depth chart is in question, but the skipper noted that the 28-year-old will remain out of the lineup Monday against Mets right-hander Max Scherzer. Expect Sosa to pick up another start Monday, and he could have a chance to make a legitimate run at the everyday shortstop job if he impresses over the next two days.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Fails to win starting spot

    Sosa has lost the battle for the Cardinals' starting shortstop job to Paul DeJong, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Sosa moved ahead of DeJong on the depth chart last season, hitting .271/.346/.389 while his teammate struggled to a .197/.284/.390 line. DeJong was given the chance to win his old job back this spring, however, and he was able to do so. Expect Sosa's at-bats to be limited early in the year as a result, though he could certainly reclaim the role if DeJong stumbles out of the gate.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: In competition with DeJong

    Sosa entered the spring in competition with Paul DeJong to be the Cardinals' Opening Day shortstop, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    DeJong has a slight edge for the starting role at this point, but Sosa is right in the mix. Through three spring games, Sosa is 2-for-7 with a double and three RBI, though he's also struck out four times. The 26-year-old may not win the starting job out of spring training, but he figures to keep the position a competition throughout 2022. Sosa hit a solid .271/.346/.389 with six home runs, 27 RBI, 39 runs scored and four stolen bases in 113 contests last season.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Starting at second base

    Sosa (wrist) is starting Saturday's game against the Cubs, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Sosa had been out of the lineup in each of the last seven games due to a wrist injury, but he went 1-for-1 off the bench Friday. He'll start at the keystone and bat seventh while Paul DeJong serves as the starting shortstop.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Sitting again Friday

    Sosa (wrist) is not in the lineup Friday against the Cubs, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Sosa will be on the bench for the seventh straight contest as he continues to manage a right wrist injury, The Cardinals have secured their place in the playoffs, so the 25-year-old won't be rushed back this weekend. However, he'll be available off the bench in Friday's matchup, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Paul DeJong will receive another start at shortstop.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: On bench again Thursday

    Sosa (wrist) remains on the bench for Thursday's game against the Brewers, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Sosa will sit for the sixth straight game as he recovers from a right wrist injury. The Cardinals have little incentive to rush him back, as they clinched a playoff spot Tuesday. Paul DeJong remains the starting shortstop.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Remains on bench

    Sosa (wrist) isn't starting Wednesday's game against Milwaukee, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Sosa will be out of the lineup for a fifth straight game as he continues to deal with a right wrist injury. He's been able to play catch but hasn't yet resumed swinging, although the team is optimistic that he'll be able to do so soon. Manager Mike Shildt said Wednesday that he isn't concerned about the 25-year-old's injury but said he'll likely receive some more days off prior to the end of the regular season. Paul DeJong will start at shortstop and bat sixth.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Still sidelined

    Sosa (wrist) remains on the bench Tuesday against the Brewers, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Sosa will sit for the fourth straight game after he was hit in the wrist by a pitch Friday against the Cubs. He hasn't appeared off the bench in any of the three previous games, and it's unclear if he'll be available in that capacity Tuesday. However, he played catch on the field ahead of Tuesday's matchup, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Paul DeJong remains the starter at shortstop.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Sitting again Sunday

    Sosa (wrist) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Sosa continues to recover from the right wrist injury he suffered when hit by a pitch during Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader in Chicago, and it's not a major surprise to see him on the bench again Sunday. The 25-year-old will have Monday's scheduled off day to aid in his recovery before potentially missing more time. Paul DeJong will receive another start at shortstop in his absence.
