Edmundo Sosa getting ‘real shot’ to win shortstop job

The Cardinals intend to give Edmundo Sosa a "real shot" to win the starting shortstop job over rookie Brendan Donovan, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Fantasy Impact

Sosa started at shortstop during the team's lone playoff game last season, but Donovan's emergence at the plate "has rewritten several lineups," writes Goold. Manager Oliver Marmol admitted he is playing the hot hand at the moment, though he intends to give Sosa the majority of the playing time at shortstop going forward. "When you look at how we use Sosa, it definitely won’t be Sosa is just playing against left-handed pitchers,” the skipper explained. “Sosa is going to get a real shot at playing short. It’s a matter of that tough righty with tough sink in on his hands. That’s a Donovan day.” Through 12 games this season, the 26-year-old Sosa is slashing .172/.250/.172 with 13 strikeouts. On the other hand, Donovan is 8-for-25 (.320) with one homer, five RBI, four walks, and five strikeouts since his promotion to the majors on April 25.

Edmundo Sosa collects hit, scored run in win over Mets

Cardinals third baseman Edmundo Sosa went 1-for-3 and scored one run Wednesday in the Cardinals' 10-5 win over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact

Sosa has been used sparingly to begin the season, getting hits in three of five games this season for St. Louis. Sosa should only be rostered if the injury bug finds its way into the Cardinals lineup.

Edmundo Sosa exits game with apparent wrist injury

Edmundo Sosa exited game 1 of Friday's Cardinals-Cubs doubleheader with a wrist injury after being hit with a pitch in the 6th inning. Sosa immediately ran into the clubhouse before the trainer could check on him. Sosa was replaced by Paul DeJong at Shortstop.

Fantasy Impact

Sosa left the game in the top of the 6th inning, heading straight to the clubhouse. It looks like Sosa knows how bad the injury is by not making the effort to run to 1st base. Sosa is being examined by the trainer and then will presumably get an X-ray to see the severity of the injury.

Edmundo Sosa homers, scores three runs in win on Friday

Filling in at shortstop for the injured Paul DeJong, Edmundo Sosa went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored in a 15-4 blowout over the Brewers on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact

Due to injuries throughout the lineup this season, Sosa has played 93 games this season and held his own with a solid .278 AVG and .765 OPS. His playing time figures to remain inconsistent depending on the health of the Cardinals other players, but Sosa would be worth a look in deeper leagues in the event that he were to play every day.

Edmundo Sosa has monster game with four hits, three runs, five RBI

Cardinals utility infielder Edmundo Sosa filled up the box score on Saturday night, going 4-for-6 with two triples, three runs scored, and five RBI in a 13-0 win over Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Impact

Sosa started at shortstop in place of Paul DeJong on Saturday and took advantage of a friendly matchup against the Pirates. With that said, he continues to function as a utility infielder for the Cardinals and simply doesn't offer much appeal in terms of fantasy purposes despite the big night.
