  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Back from IL for postseason

    Sosa (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday and is present on the Phillies' roster for the NL Wild Card Series against the Cardinals, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Sosa missed the last few weeks of the season with a hamstring strain but has been cleared to play in the playoffs. The 26-year-old produced a .227/.275/.369 slash line in 78 games between the Cardinals and Phillies this year and will be a utility option in the infield for Philadelphia now that he's healthy.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Meets team in St. Louis

    Sosa (hamstring) traveled to St. Louis to meet the Phillies ahead of Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Cardinals on Friday, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    It's unclear if Sosa will be reinstated from the injured list and included on Philadelphia's roster for the wild-card round, but the fact he joined the team in St. Louis rather than continuing his rehab program is an encouraging sign for his recovery. The 26-year-old had a .227/.275/.369 slash in 78 games this season and will fill a utility role if included on the playoff roster.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Season in jeopardy

    Sosa is dealing with a Grade 2 hamstring strain, which could end his season, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    The Phillies acquired Sosa as a defense-first utility man at the deadline, but he's been better than advertised at the plate in limited action, slashing .315/.345/.593 across 59 plate appearances. Yairo Munoz was recalled Friday to fill his utility role and now seemingly has a path to remain on the roster the rest of the way.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Likely to miss more than minimum

    Sosa (hamstring) is expected to spend more than the minimum 10 days on the injured list, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Sosa left Thursday's game against the Marlins with a right hamstring strain and was placed on the injured list the next day. There are only 20 days left in the regular season, so Sosa will miss at least half the remainder of the campaign, and potentially the entire rest of the year. Yairo Munoz was called up to fill his utility role.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Lands on injured list

    Sosa (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list due to a strained right hamstring, Scott Lauber of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    After being removed from Thursday's loss to Miami while walking with a noticeable limp, Sosa was officially diagnosed with a strained hamstring Friday. No timetable has been put in place for his recovery, but a return in the minimum 10 days would allow him to see action again before the end of the season.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Dealing with hamstring issue

    Sosa was removed from Thursday's loss to the Marlins with right hamstring tightness, Todd Zolecki of reports.

    Sosa went 0-for-2 with a strikeout prior to his exit due to the injury. The specifics of the issue remain unclear, and the 26-year-old should be considered day-to-day until his status is updated.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Enjoys perfect performance at plate

    Sosa went 3-for-3 with a two-run home run, a double and three total RBI In Wednesday's 4-3 win over Miami.

    Sosa put Philadelphia on the board with a two-run homer to left field in the third inning, and he plated the decisive run with a double in the seventh. He finished with his second three-hit performance of the campaign, with his previous such effort coming a week ago against Arizona. Sosa has gone 5-for-5 with his first two homers of the season, two doubles, and four RBI over his past two contests.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Drives home three

    Sosa went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Monday's 4-3 win over the Reds.

    Sosa knocked home a pair in the top of the third inning on a single to left field, and he would tack on an important insurance run in the fifth with a double to left. The infielder was just 2-for-9 at the dish entering the day since landing with Philly near the trade deadline, so his multi-hit performance is a welcome sight for his new club.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Swipes two bags

    Sosa stole two bases in a 1-0 loss to the Mets on Saturday.

    Sosa came on to pinch run for Rhys Hoskins in the top of the ninth with his team down by a run. He immediately stole second and then also took third on a double steal to put the winning run in scoring position after J.T. Realmuto was walked with two out. Sosa now has five stolen bases in six attempts over 141 plate appearances with a slash line of .185/.248/.269. He should continue to see pinch-running opportunities from his backup role.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Dealt to Philadelphia

    Sosa was traded from the Cardinals to the Phillies on Saturday in exchange for JoJo Romero, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Sosa spent the first four seasons of his major-league career in St. Louis but will get a change of scenery after he slashed .189/.244/.270 with 17 runs, eight RBI and three steals over 53 games to begin the year. The 26-year-old saw inconsistent playing time with the Cardinals over the first half of the season and will likely serve as infield depth for his new team.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Back in action

    Sosa (leg) is starting Saturday against Cincinnati, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Sosa didn't appear off the bench during Friday's series opener against the Reds, but he'll start at shortstop and bat eighth after moving past his leg injury. The 26-year-old has gone 3-for-11 with a double, three RBI, a run and a stolen base over his last four games.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Not in Friday's lineup

    Sosa (leg) isn't starting Friday against the Reds, John Denton of reports.

    Sosa exited Saturday's game against Cincinnati with an apparent leg injury and won't be in the lineup for the Cardinals' first game after the All-Star break. The team wants to give him an additional day of rest, but he'll be available off the bench if needed, Denton reports.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Exits after crashing into wall

    Sosa left Saturday's game against the Reds with an apparent leg injury after crashing into the wall while chasing a foul ball, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Sosa remained down initially and appeared to be in significant pain, but he was able to walk off under his own power. He reportedly avoided a fracture and is merely considered day-to-day, though it wouldn't be a surprise if he skips Sunday's series finale in order to secure some extra rest heading into the All-Star break.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Retreats to bench

    Sosa is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Sosa is back on the bench after he started in five of the last six games while going 2-for-18 at the plate. Though Brendan Donovan (illness) is out of the lineup for the fourth game in a row, he doesn't appear to be in jeopardy of landing on the injured list, so Sosa likely won't see his opportunities increase moving forward.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Playing time on upswing

    Sosa will start at third base and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Phillies.

    With Nolan Arenado getting a rare day off, Sosa will fill in at the hot corner for what will be his fifth start in six contests. Sosa has benefited in part from Brendan Donovan (illness) sitting out the last three games, so Sosa will be at risk of falling back into a utility role whenever the rookie is cleared to rejoin the lineup.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Returns to utility role

    Sosa is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    Sosa recently made three consecutive starts, but he'll stick on the bench for a second straight contest to close the weekend now that Nolan Gorman has shaken off a hand injury. Expect the 26-year-old to serve in a utility role moving forward now that St. Louis is at full strength in the infield.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Snaps skid with RBI triple

    Sosa went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple and a run scored in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Marlins.

    Sosa plated the first run of the Cardinals' four-run rally in the fifth inning, and he scored on a Tommy Edman single to tie the game at 3-3. While playing time has been limited for Sosa, this was still his first hit since June 4 -- he went 14 at-bats without one. The shortstop is batting a meager .193/.237/.261 with a stolen base, five RBI, 14 runs scored, two triples and two doubles through 93 plate appearances in what has mainly been a reserve role this year. The switch-hitting Edman will likely continue to start at shortstop against most right-handed pitchers and some lefties.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Displays speed Wednesday

    Sosa went 2-for-4 with a triple, a stolen base and two runs scored in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Marlins.

    With Tommy Edman getting a rare breather, Sosa was able to stay in the lineup against Marlins right-hander Sandy Alcantara. Sosa made the most of his opportunity, hitting his second triple in as many games and adding his second steal in three attempts this year. The shortstop is now batting .207 through 97 plate appearances, so he's got a long way to go before coming anywhere close to a solid place in the lineup. He's added five RBI, 16 runs scored, three triples and two doubles this year.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Lacking playing time

    Sosa has started just six of the Cardinals' 17 games in June.

    Sosa is mired in an 0-for-14 skid across his last seven games, and he's failed to take hold of a starting role at shortstop. With the emergence of rookies Nolan Gorman and Brendan Donovan, Tommy Edman has been pushed to shortstop against most right-handed pitchers. Sosa's lack of hitting -- he has a .188/.233/.235 slash line in 90 plate appearances -- could also put his spot on the 26-man roster at risk. Paul DeJong has clubbed nine home runs with 29 RBI and 22 runs scored in 31 games since he was sent down to Triple-A Memphis, though he's only batted .228 in that stretch, and his flash of power could eventually see him overtake Sosa again on the organizational depth chart.
