Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel passes along word that veteran right-hander Jorge Sosa has joined up with the Marlins’ Triple-A affiliate in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Sosa has pitched for the Rays, Braves, Cardinals, Mets and Nationals over the course of his eight-year professional career. He was a member of Washington’s bullpen last season and posted a 6.45 ERA, 1.79 WHIP and 17/12 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings before he was eventually designated for assignment.
The 32-year-old was at his best back in 2005, when he finished 13-3 with a 2.55 ERA in 44 appearances (20 starts) for Atlanta. Of course, that was a long time ago, and he’s unlikely to make a splash in the big leagues anytime in the near future. But, uh, just in case you kind folks were wondering what the guy is up to…
