Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Singles in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa drew his first start of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals, going 1-for-2 and getting hit by a pitch.

The 25-year-old utility man had appeared in just three other games this season as an in-game substitute, but with Paul DeJong getting a day off, Sosa started in his place at shortstop. Sosa is likely ticketed for sporadic action as long as the Cardinals enjoy good health, but his ability to fill in at three infield spots would make him a solid candidate for playing time if injuries strike.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Celebrates roster spot with homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa, who has secured a utility spot on the Opening Day roster, went 2-for-2 with a solo home run in a Grapefruit League tie with the Mets on Monday.

Sosa put together a positive finish to a quiet spring with his only multi-hit effort of Grapefruit League play as well as his only round-tripper of the exhibition slate. The 25-year-old hit just .200 (5-for-25) this spring, but his ability to cover multiple positions and his solid track minor-league track record at the plate likely helped him latch onto a roster spot to open the campaign.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Stars in B game Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa, who is 0-for-4 across his two official Grapefruit League game appearances thus far, starred in a "B" game against the Astros on Friday, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.

Sosa, competing for a utility role on the Opening Day roster, smacked a three-run home run while also throwing out a runner trying to score from second base. The 25-year-old played both second base and third base during the game and has logged time at both positions, shortstop and designated hitter in the minors. Sosa never saw action in a 2020 regular-season game, but he recorded a combined 13 plate appearances with the big-league club during the 2018 and 2019 campaigns.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa (illness) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Thursday and optioned to the alternate site, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

He has yet to play in the majors this season and will continue to serve as organizational infield depth, most notably at shortstop. The Cardinals have many players still unavailable, but the infield is relatively healthy.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Getting work in Springfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa (illness) is set to start getting at-bats at the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The utility infielder is one of a multitude of Cardinals players working his way through the COVID-19 reentry process. Sosa was cleared for baseball activities Monday, and if he's able to demonstrate his timing at the plate is solid in Springfield, he could be deemed ready for activation in fairly short order.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Cleared to resume activity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa (illness) was cleared to resume baseball activities Monday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Sosa was sidelined since early August after testing positive for COVID-19, but he'll now report to the team's alternate training site in Springfield to get back into game shape. It's unclear how much time he'll need before he's ready to return to the active roster, but he should serve as infield depth once he's back in the majors.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Heads to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa landed on the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday.

Sosa is one of a number of Cardinals who tested positive for the virus in recent days. He'll remain sidelined until he's symptom-free and tests negative twice. Whether or not that comes before or after the Cardinals are cleared to play their next game remains to be seen.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Dealing with coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa is one of the Cardinals who has tested positive for COVID-19.

The entire Cardinals team is in the middle of at least a week-long shutdown in an attempt to prevent a further spread of the virus. Sosa in theory could have been the next man up at shortstop when Paul DeJong tested positive, but he now won't be appearing in any capacity until he's symptom-free and tests negative twice. He appears to have that first part covered already, as Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports the infielder is asymptomatic.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Makes Opening Day cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa was named to the Cardinals' Opening Day roster Thursday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Brad Miller's ankle and heel injuries have worked to Sosa's benefit, as it vaulted the latter onto the expanded Opening Day roster. However, Sosa earned the job on his own merits as well, as he made a strong impression throughout spring training and summer camp with respect to his defensive versatility and contact rate at the plate. Sosa has experience filling in at second base, third base and shortstop, with his most extensive experience coming at the latter position.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Snags spot in player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa has been included in the player pool that will report to Cardinals summer camp July 1, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The versatile utility asset's inclusion was to be expected, especially considering he proved capable as a hitter at the Triple-A level last season (.291/.335/.466 over 496 plate appearances) and is already on the 40-man roster. Assuming he makes the cut for Opening Day, Sosa could be utilized in a variety of positions in the truncated 2020 regular season.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Likely beneficiary of larger roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa would be highly likely to return to the big-league club if rosters are expanded to 30 players for the 2020 season, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Goold provides his assessment on the versatile utility asset in a response to a reader question about what players the Cardinals might opt to carry were they afforded four extra spots to work with. Sosa makes the cut in Goold's eyes due to the 24-year-old's ability to fill in at shortstop and the fact he's already on the 40-man roster. Sosa has just 13 regular-season big-league plate appearances to his name, but he swatted a pair of doubles and home runs apiece during Grapefruit League play and generated a solid .291/.335/.466 line with 40 extra-base hits (18 doubles, five triples, 17 home runs) across 496 plate appearances at Triple-A Memphis in 2019.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday.

Sosa had a shot to win a bench role this spring, especially after Yairo Munoz was released, but he'll wind up starting in the minors. With just 13 big-league plate appearances under his belt and a below-average batting line at the Triple-A level, Sosa is unlikely to make a significant impact this season.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Better chance at roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa, who hit his second home run of spring in a Grapefruit League win over the Astros on Saturday after entering the game as a pinch runner, has a better chance at an Opening Day roster spot now that Yairo Munoz (hamstring) has been placed on unconditional release waivers, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Munoz abruptly left the Cardinals and headed back to his home in the Dominican Republic without informing team officials, leading to the move. Munoz's departure is certainly to Sosa's potential benefit, especially since the latter impressed in winter ball and has already made an impact this spring. Sosa is capable of playing both shortstop and third base, and he thrived at the highest levels of the minors last season by slashing .291/.335/.466 with 40 extra-base hits (18 doubles, five triples, 17 home runs) and 62 RBI across 118 games with Triple-A Memphis.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Gets call to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

Sosa gets the call-up from the Redbirds following a season during which he slashed .291/.335/.466 with 40 extra-base hits (18 doubles, five triples, 17 home runs) and 62 RBI across 496 plate appearances. It's Sosa's second major-league stint of 2019, as he was up for three games earlier in the season and notched a single over three plate appearances. The 23-year-old shortstop will serve as depth behind Paul DeJong for the balance of the regular season.

July 20, 2019 01:28 PM
Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.

Sosa was up for just four days. He made three appearances off the bench, going 1-for-3 at the plate. Reliever Ryan Helsley was recalled in a corresponding move.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Called up by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa was recalled by the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Sosa will likely fill a bench role with Matt Carpenter (foot) heading to the injured list and Tommy Edman likely ticketed for Carpenter's spot at third base. Sosa received three big-league plate appearances last season but has spent all of this year with Triple-A Memphis, where he's recorded an unimpressive .252/.304/.424 slash line, good for just a 73 wRC+.

March 9, 2019 06:36 PM
Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.

Sosa has three big-league games under his belt but was never likely to break camp with the team. He'll return to Memphis, where he hit a modest .262/.321/.408 last season, and will wait for an injury in the Cardinals' infield to open up an opportunity.

September 25, 2018 10:44 AM
Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Called up to big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Sunday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

Sosa was added to the active roster in a move that manager Mike Shildt labeled as "independent" of Kolten Wong's current hamstring issues that have kept him out of the lineup for the last two games. Sosa has played second base, third base and shortstop over his minor-league career, and he slashed a solid .262/.321/.408 with 18 extra-base hits (13 doubles, five home runs) and 27 RBI across 56 games with Triple-A Memphis. Shildt indicated Sosa is likely to be utilized as a pinch runner and defensive replacement over the final week of the regular season.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Assigned to Triple-A Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Sunday.

Sosa played well for the Cardinals this spring, going 7-for-16 with three walks over 11 games. He'll head to Triple-A Memphis for the first time once the season begins. Sosa spent most of the 2017 season at High-A Palm Beach, hitting .285/.329/.347 over 51 games.

Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Recovering from hamate bone surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sosa (wrist) had hamate bone surgery in June and has begun rehabbing, Kyle Glaser of Baseball America reports.

The average return time for an injury like Sosa's is 4-to-6 weeks, but it is unclear how well the shortstop is following that timetable as the Cardinals haven't announced a formal return date. Sosa has spent most of his time this season with High-A Palm Beach but appeared in one game with Double-A Springfield before suffering the injury.
