Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
The 20-year-old Sosa remains mostly projection at this point, as he was unable to build off a breakout 2015 campaign. In the 2016 season, his first year in full-season ball, Sosa slashed .270/.307/.343 in 97 games, mostly at Low-A. Sosa should stick at shortstop, but he did not show quite the power potential he flashed in 2015 and he swiped just five bases. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Sosa's plate discipline and contact rate slipped against higher-level competition. Sosa did spend the last month of the season on the disabled list, cutting short any chance at a strong finish. He'll start at High-A to begin the 2017 campaign, hoping to tap into his significant upside.
The one thing the Cardinals have never had in their great farm systems of recent memory is a shortstop prospect hounds could get excited about. Sosa changes that, thanks to an advanced hit tool and a plus glove that will allow him to stick at the position. He slashed .300/.369/.485 with seven home runs and six steals (on eight attempts) in 49 games after being assigned to rookie level Johnson City in late June. At 5-foot-11, his .185 ISO as a 19-year-old is pretty impressive, and gives prospective owners a little to dream on in the power department. However, this is more of a batting average oriented profile with the hope that he can hit high enough in the order for his solid approach to allow him to score a ton of runs. The Panamanian shortstop appears ready for his first full-season assignment sometime in 2016, and he should be squarely on the radar in leagues where 200-plus prospects are rostered.
