Sosa is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Sosa is on the bench for the fifth time in seven games and appears to have lost his grip on the everyday role at second base, with veteran Elvis Andrus re-emerging as the top option at the position. Since the beginning of September, Sosa has mustered a lowly .446 OPS in nine games.... See More ... See Less

Sosa is absent from the lineup Friday versus the Twins.
Sosa has recently been sharing starts at second base with Elvis Andrus, who will cover the position and bat eighth Friday against the Twins and right-hander Bailey Ober.

White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Takes seat Tuesday
Sosa is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals.
Sosa has been the White Sox's primary option at second base over the past couple weeks, and he's likely to remain in that role since he has an .820 OPS in his last 15 games. However, it'll be Elvis Andrus that starts at the keystone Tuesday versus Kansas City righty Brady Singer.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Gets Sunday off
Sosa is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers.
Elvis Andrus will get the start the keystone in the series finale while Sosa sits for the first time since Aug. 24. Sosa has slashed .260/.260/.500 with four home runs and nine RBI in 15 games during his latest stint with the White Sox and should be locked into a near-everyday role down the stretch while the non-contending club plays out the string in a losing season....

White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Socks fifth homer
Sosa went 3-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 9-3 loss to the Orioles.
The second baseman went yard for the third time in the last five games and the fifth time this season, getting the White Sox on the board in the third inning by driving a Dean Kremer sinker over the fence in right-center. Sosa has seized control of the starting job at the keystone by batting .333 (12-for-36) over the last 11 games with four long balls and nine RBI, but his 0:9 BB:K during that hot streak suggests that while his power is legitimate, he could still be a batting average and OBP risk down the stretch....

White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Belts another homer
Sosa went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's victory over the Athletics.
Sosa was one of three White Sox players to hit a home run Saturday, tagging JP Sears for a long ball in the second inning. After logging one homer in his first 24 games, Sosa has launched three long balls in the last six days. During that stretch, Sosa is 6-for-22 (.272) and has been handling most of the work at second base.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Emerging as starter at keystone
Sosa went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 12-4 loss to the A's.
He got the White Sox on the board by slicing a Zach Neal cutter the other way over the right-field wall in the second inning, but Chicago was already in a 5-0 hole at that point. Sosa has started four of the last five games at second base as Elvis Andrus shifts into a utility role, and the younger infielder has earned the assignment by batting .273 (6-for-22) over his last seven games with two homers and seven RBI....

White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Delivers three-run homer
Sosa went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 10-5 win over the Rockies.
Sosa didn't start the contest, but he entered as the replacement when Elvis Andrus was ejected for yelling from the dugout. The blast was Sosa's second of the campaign, and he's gone 3-for-9 with five RBI over three games since he was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte. The infielder is at a middling .156/.167/.273 slash line with eight RBI and five runs scored over 79 plate appearances. His time as a regular in the lineup may come to a close when Tim Anderson's suspension ends Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Drives in two
Sosa went 2-for-4 with two RBI on Saturday against the Rockies.
Sosa has drawn consecutive starts at second base in the absence of Tim Anderson (suspension), while Elvis Andrus has shifted to shortstop. Sosa has gotten bits of major-league experience in the last two seasons but has struggled significantly in both stints. His effort Saturday was encouraging -- it was his third multi-hit performance in 35 career games -- though it did come at Coors Field. Once Anderson is reinstated, Sosa is likely to lose playing time and potentially his roster spot.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Recalled from Charlotte
The White Sox recalled Sosa from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.
The 23-year-old will likely get a few starts in Chicago's infield while Tim Anderson serves his five-game suspension for an on-field fight with Jose Ramirez earlier this month. Sosa holds a career .126 batting average and .366 OPS in 33 games (106 plate appearances) at the major-league level but a more palatable .271/.313/.507 slash line at Charlotte this season with 17 homers in 71 games....

Sosa is expected to be called up to the White Sox on Friday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The 23-year-old can help fill in at shortstop while Tim Anderson serves his five-game suspension for brawling with Jose Ramirez earlier this month. Sosa has flashed good power in the minors but holds a career .126/.143/.223 batting line in 106 major-league plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
