DateQuestionAnswer
2015-09-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for chatting, Mauricio! Edmundo Sosa showed some serious power this year (.185 ISO, and over .200 on the road), and he also hit for average for the 3rd straight year. Could he be a plus bat at the shortstop position long term?
(Cordwainer from Sheboygan)
The hit tool profiled as plus potential coming into the year and he's held up that reputation. All signs point to him sticking at short as well with a plus defensive profile. The ISO is a little high but he's going to have a bit of pop to go along with a really nice hit tool. I'm eager to get him for an extended look in the MWL next year, he's a dude to watch. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-09-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)Mauricio! Shortstop Edmundo Sosa was really solid this year (.854 OPS) and even better on the road (.330/.390/.540) but I haven't heard much about his glovework. Can he stay at short? Can he maybe even excel there? Thanks!
(Lawrence from Kansas)
Second Edmundo Sosa question. Sosa has the footwork and hands for short which is a good mix for sticking and indeed excelling at the position. His arm is the weak spot but he has enough juice to be a shortstop long term. (Mauricio Rubio)
