Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2017
2016
Sosa got his second major-league cup of coffee in 2019, collecting two singles and a walk in 10 plate appearances. The Panamanian has blossomed in the minors over the past two campaigns; after hitting only 12 home runs through his first 1,016 minor-league at-bats, Sosa matched that total in 452 at-bats in 2018. He continued to grow in the power department last season, slugging 17 long balls while slashing .291/.335/.466 and sporting a .339 wOBA. Of course, some of his power surge may be due to the homer-happy environment of Triple-A ball, but Sosa's age (he'll turn 24 in March) and recent addition of a leg kick at the plate suggest that the transformation is legit. 2020 will be Sosa's final option year, so the Cardinals may decide to give him a longer look in the big leagues. He won't start, but with the ability to play above-average defense at multiple positions, Sosa could fill an important utility role.
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.
