  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Swats three-run homer

    Sosa went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run during Wednesday's 11-4 win over the Rangers.

    The shortstop tagged Jonathan Hernandez for a round-tripper in the fourth inning, plating Nick Castellanos and Brandon Marsh. The long ball was Sosa's second of the campaign and his first in 51 at-bats, dating back to April 7. Since Trea Turner (hamstring) was placed on the injured list May 4, Sosa is 11-for-37 (.297) with 12 runs and nine RBI.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Sosa is not in the lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Rangers.

    Sosa has received most of the starts at shortstop since Trea Turner went down and boasts a .924 OPS over that time. However, the Phillies are going with Bryson Stott at shortstop and Kody Clemens at second base versus righty Jon Gray and the Rangers.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Stays hot at dish Sunday

    Sosa went 1-for-3 with a triple, a walk, a stolen base, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 7-6 extra-inning loss to the Marlins.

    Sosa has been getting the job done as the primary replacement at shortstop for Trea Turner, who was placed on the 10-day injured list May 4 with a left hamstring strain. While starting in seven of the last eight games, Sosa has gotten on base at a .444 clip while contributing three extra-base hits (one triple, two doubles) and two stolen bases. He'll remain in the starting nine once again Monday against the Mets, manning shortstop while batting sixth.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Heading to bench Monday

    Sosa is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    Sosa started at shortstop in the Phillies' first two games after Trea Turner (hamstring) landed on the 10-day injured list, going 2-for-8 with a two RBI, one run and one stolen base. Though he could still end up serving as the primary option at shortstop during Turner's absence, Sosa will give way to Bryson Stott on Monday while Whit Merrifield fills in at Stott's usual spot at second base.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Starting Saturday

    Sosa is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in Saturday's game against the Giants.

    Sosa appears set to take over as the primary shortstop with Trea Turner landing on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain. Sosa has appeared in nine games this season and is 6-for-21 with two runs, one double, one home run and two RBI over that span.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Excels in start at second base

    Sosa went 2-for-2 with a solo home run and an additional run batted in Sunday against the Nationals.

    Sosa made his first appearance in over a week, filling in for Bryson Stott -- who got the day off -- at second base. He delivered his first long ball of the campaign, tagging MacKenzie Gore for a solo homer in the fifth frame. He got only two looks at the plate, with Stott coming in to replace Sosa in the eighth inning. The utility man should continue to play sparingly, but he's a decent bat when in the lineup.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Expected back Thursday

    Phillies manager Rob Thomson expects Sosa (foot) to return to the lineup Thursday, Corey Seidman of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Sosa was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup due to a bruised left foot, which occurred when he fouled a ball off the area. However, Sosa likely could have played if needed, and he'll miss only one day of action.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Scratched with foot contusion

    Sosa was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against Atlanta because of a left foot contusion, Corey Seidman of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Weston Wilson will take Sosa's spot at shortstop and Aramis Garcia will enter the lineup at designated hitter. Sosa should be considered day-to-day.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Settles at $1.7 million

    Sosa signed a one-year, $1.7 million contract with the Phillies on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Sosa hit .251 and managed a .720 OPS with 30 RBI through 299 plate appearances in 2023. While last season ended up being one of Sosa's best at the plate, his role remains limited due to the presence of Bryson Stott, Alec Bohm and Trea Turner in Philadelphia's infield.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Sits for Game 1 of twin bill

    Sosa is out of the lineup for the first game of Monday's doubleheader with Atlanta, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Sosa went 4-for-18 with a home run, a stolen base, two RBI and three runs while making five starts in the Phillies' past seven games, but he'll be back on the bench for the first game of Monday's twin bill. Despite the uptick in playing time of late, Sosa still looks to be viewed as a utility man and doesn't have a direct path to an everyday spot in the lineup.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Triple, home run in win

    Sosa went 2-for-4 with a triple and a two-run homer in Monday's 10-4 win over the Giants.

    Sosa put the Phillies ahead 3-1 with a two-run blast off of Sean Manaea in the second inning before picking up his second triple of the year in the fourth. It's an encouraging effort for Sosa, who's now 4-for-6 over his last three games. However, he's retreated to a utility role since Bryce Harper's taken over as the Phillies' primary first baseman, moving Alec Bohm back to third. Overall, the 27-year-old Sosa is batting .252 with eight homers, 28 runs scored, 23 RBI and a .721 OPS across 228 plate appearances this season.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Sosa is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Cleveland.

    Sosa leads the Phillies with 51 starts at third base this season, but he'll likely see that playing time drop now that Bryce Harper is seeing action at first base. That's the case Sunday, with Alec Bohm moving to the hot corner while batting seventh.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Out of lineup Tuesday

    Sosa (leg) is out of the lineup Tuesday versus the Brewers.

    Sosa made an early exit from the second half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Padres due to a leg cramp, but he scored a run off the bench in Sunday's series finale and should be available in the same capacity as the Phillies open a three-game set against Milwaukee. Alec Bohm is starting at third base and batting seventh for the Phillies on Tuesday.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Dealing with cramp

    Sosa exited the second game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Padres due to a cramp, Corey Seidman of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Sosa had a rough half-inning in the seventh, reaching base on a hit-by-pitch to the hand, then getting lifted after looking gimpy running from second to third. However, it looks like he's managed to avoid a serious injury in both cases. Consider Sosa day-to-day.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Exits with apparent leg injury

    Sosa was lifted from the second game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Padres with an apparent leg injury, Corey Seidman of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Sosa came up lame while running from second to third in the seventh inning and was removed for a pinch runner. He had reached base after being hit on the hand by a pitch with the bases loaded.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Snaps slump with homer

    Sosa went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Cubs in Wednesday's 8-5 win.

    Sosa entered Wednesday mired in a massive June swoon during which he was batting a paltry .174 with no homers, no walks and 13 strikeouts over 46 plate appearances. For one game at least, he showed that he is still capable of contributing at the plate, as he kicked off a big offensive night for the team with a two-run shot in the second inning. Sosa's primary contributions to the Phillies are versatility and defense, and given his ugly 2:43 BB:K on the campaign, there's little reason to believe he's headed for a sudden surge at the dish.

  • Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Moves back to bench

    Sosa is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    Sosa had started over Drew Ellis at third base in both of the past two games, but both players will see their roles decline after the Phillies reinstated Alec Bohm (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list Sunday. Ellis was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move, while Sosa is expected to serve as a utility infielder moving forward, with Bohm taking back his usual spot at the hot corner in Sunday's series finale with the Dodgers.
