Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the Marlins signed Jorge Sosa to a minor league deal "earlier this month." Sosa has been in extended spring training for the last week and will soon join the starting rotation in New Orleans, Florida's Triple-A affiliate.

 

Sosa, 31, had been signed by the Red Sox on a minor league contract earlier this winter. After a few mediocre spring innings, he was reassigned to minor league camp and ultimately released by Boston.

 

The right-hander appeared in 18 games for the Nationals last season, posting a 6.45 ERA over 22.1 IP. He last demonstrated big-league effectiveness in 2007, compiling a 4.47 ERA in 112.2 IP for the Mets.

cool if he showed some improvement in srike throwing i wouldnt mind it for aaa. if i was beinfest, for the few non prospect spots in the aaa rotation i would keep adding guys like this until 1 pans out every now and then. guys like this, brian lawrenence(who needs to be released), clay hensley.

this question is kind out of no where but i'm gonna ask it anyway. why did we release mcclung and macdougal. why didn't we just let them pitch some innings in AAA to see if they could get their groove back?? just noticed that macdougal was doing decent in the nationals minor league roster

 

 

 

because neither of them threw strikes and i think there was a mutual agreement for them that if they didnt make the major league roster then they dont have to go to the minors and they could just become a free agent. I know that was for mcclung at least. I think that just shows how bad mcdougal was.

You also don't want to throw EVERYONE into AAA, because you want some of your younger, developmental guys (think Tucker, Thankersley, Leroux before his call-up) to get innings. If you have 9 veterans on the pitching staff in AAA, then you only have 4 young guys, and that's just not the best thing for the [long-term] development of the team.
