White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: To open year at Triple-A
Sosa was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday.
Sosa is on the 40-man roster and made his big-league debut in 2022, but more development is needed in the upper levels of the minors. Chicago brought in veteran Elvis Andrus to serve as a placeholder at the keystone, with Sosa and Jose Rodriguez the most intriguing internal long-term options behind him.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Sent down Friday
Sosa was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.
Sosa lost out on consistent playing time recently and will head to the minors after hitting just .114 with a home run, a double, three runs and an RBI over 11 games in the majors. Elvis Andrus was signed by the White Sox on Friday and should serve as the primary shortstop while Tim Anderson (hand) and Leury Garcia (back) are on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: On bench in second straight game
Sosa is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Astros.
Even with Leury Garcia (back) joining Tim Anderson (hand) on the injured list Wednesday, Sosa won't necessarily be handed the keys to the everyday shortstop role. In fact, Sosa will find himself on the bench Thursday for the second day in a row, as fellow rookie Romy Gonzalez draws another start at shortstop after going 1-for-4 with a double in his 2022 MLB debut. Since joining the White Sox on Aug. 7, Sosa has gone 3-for-22 (.136 average) with a solo home run in six games.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Riding pine Wednesday
Sosa isn't starting Wednesday against the Astros.
Sosa has hit just .136 with a solo home run and eight strikeouts over his last six matchups and is out of the lineup for the third time in the last five games. Romy Gonzalez will start at shortstop and bat ninth.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Absent from Monday's lineup
Sosa isn't starting Monday against the Astros, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.
Sosa is out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games after he went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts Sunday against the Tigers. Leury Garcia is starting at shortstop and batting ninth.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Slugs first career homer
Sosa went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Royals.
Sosa drew his first start since being recalled Sunday and he delivered his first career home run. He has a very limited major-league sample but has maintained an .878 OPS across 387 plate appearances between Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte this season. However, Sosa may struggle to find regular at-bats with the White Sox, as Josh Harrison and Yoan Moncada have been locked into the lineup at second and third base of late.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Moves back to big leagues
The White Sox recalled Sosa from Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday.
Reliever Tanner Banks was optioned to the minors to make room on the 26-man active roster for Sosa, who may serve as a utility man for the White Sox if manager Tony LaRussa isn't yet ready to pull the plug on second baseman Josh Harrison or third baseman Yoan Moncada as everyday players. LaRussa could soon be able to find room in the lineup for all three players on a short-term basis, as Sosa may be a candidate to pick up starts at shortstop if Tim Anderson's appeal of a three-game suspension isn't overturned in the near future. The 22-year-old Sosa, who was briefly up with the big club for a brief period in late June, seemingly has little left to prove in the minors after slashing .316/.367/.511 in 85 games between stops at Charlotte and Double-A Birmingham....

White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Rejoins Triple-A lineup
Sosa (ankle) returned to Triple-A Charlotte's lineup over the weekend and went 1-for-10 with two walks across his three starts against Gwinnett.
Sosa was sidelined for just under a week with a minor ankle issue that didn't result in his placement on the 7-day injured list. The 22-year-old received his first big-league call-up earlier this summer, but until the White Sox lose patience with the underwhelming veteran duo of Josh Harrison and Leury Garcia at second base, Sosa may not get an extended look as a starter in the majors in 2022....

White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Dealing with ankle issue
Sosa has not played since July 2 due to ankle pain, but he's expected back shortly, Daniel Victor of White Sox Daily reports.
He's supposed to be back with Triple-A Charlotte "in a few days." Sosa went 6-for-14 (.429) with two doubles in three games after being demoted to Charlotte following his four-game cup of coffee in the majors. It's likely we'll see him up with the big club again later this season, especially considering how little offense the White Sox are getting from Leury Garcia and Josh Harrison at second base....

White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Sent back to Charlotte
The White Sox optioned Sosa to Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.
After getting his first big-league call-up last Thursday, Sosa started at second base in three of Chicago's subsequent five games and went 1-for-12 with a double, a walk and two runs. With Yoan Moncada (hamstring) making his return from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, the White Sox won't have an everyday role available in the infield for the 22-year-old, who will head back to Charlotte to play on a regular basis....

White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Leads off in first start
Sosa went 0-for-5 with a run scored and a strikeout Saturday against Baltimore.
Sosa drew his first big-league start playing at second base and leading off. He reached base on an error by Tyler Nevin in the third inning and subsequently came around to score the first big-league run of his career. Sosa won't occupy the leadoff spot regularly so long as Tim Anderson is healthy, though he could find regular playing time due to the extensive number of injuries currently plaguing the White Sox....

White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Call-up made official
Sosa's contract was selected from Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday.
Sosa has been in the midst of a breakout campaign in Birmingham to begin the season, as he slashed .331/.384/.549 with 14 home runs, 48 RBI and 47 runs over 62 games at the Double-A level. Although the 22-year-old has never played above Double-A, he'll be rewarded with a big-league promotion to provide infield depth for the White Sox after Danny Mendick (knee) was placed on the injured list Thursday....

White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Makes big-league debut
Sosa went 0-for-1 with a walk Thursday against the Orioles.
Sosa entered in the sixth inning to make his major-league debut after Josh Harrison (elbow) exited the game. Sosa struck out on four pitches in his first at-bat, but he managed a nine-pitch walk in the following plate appearance. Prior to his promotion, Sosa hit .331/.384/.549 with 14 home runs across 289 plate appearances with Double-A Birmingham.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Won't start Thursday
Sosa isn't included in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles.
Fresh off his promotion from Double-A Birmingham earlier Thursday, Sosa could be eased into the majors as a reserve option. The 22-year-old is an intriguing prospect who looks ready for a stiffer test after turning in a .933 OPS in 289 plate appearances at Birmingham, but he may have to settle for a utility role initially while manager Tony La Russa turns to a combination of Josh Harrison, Leury Garcia and Jake Burger to handle reps at second base and third base. Neither Harrison (.611 OPS) nor Garcia (.456 OPS) have been especially impressive, however, so Sosa may not have to wait long to get an opportunity.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Getting call to big leagues
The White Sox will call Sosa up from Double-A Binghamton prior to Thursday's game against the Orioles, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Sosa is one of the top breakout prospects in baseball, as he slashed .214/.240/.282 in 33 games at Double-A last year and slashed .331/.384/.549 with 14 home runs and a 13.8 percent strikeout rate in 62 games with Birmingham this year. The 22-year-old spent time at shortstop, third base and second base while at Double-A and could see steady playing time in the short term with Leury Garcia (side) and Danny Mendick (knee) banged up and Yoan Moncada (hamstring) on the injured list....

White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Cranking in Double-A
Sosa has a .342/.392/.566 line with 11 homers, 39 RBI and a 14:32 BB:K through 49 games for Double-A Birmingham.
He came into the season known as a free swinger with modest pop, but Sosa's muscled up, hitting as many homers already this year as he did in 115 games last season. He's also brought his walk rate up a bit (6.2 percent) while striking out at his lowest rate (14.1 percent) since rookie ball, so all signs are pointing up for Sosa in his second Double-A go-'round. Sosa had been pigeonholed as a future utility guy, but if he keeps hitting this consistently (his longest hitless streak this season is two games), the White Sox will likely give him a chance to strut his stuff by next season -- and maybe sooner. With Tim Anderson in the fold and Sosa not known for his defense at shortstop, the 22-year-old will probably play second base when he gets to the big leagues.... See More ... See Less
