Scouting Yankees Prospect #16: Eduardo Sosa

The Yankees signed outfielder Eduardo Sosa for $525,000 out of Venezuela as part of their 'July 2nd' signing group in 2007. Despite possessing a solid enough overall game to possibly debut in the United States this past season, he was sent to the Dominican Summer League where he put up some dominating numbers.

Vital Statistics:
Name: Eduardo Sosa
Position: Outfield
DOB: March 14, 1991
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 180
Bats: Left
Throws: Left

"This year I thought I did really well in the two areas of batting and fielding," Sosa said through the help of a translator. "I think I did real well in those areas this past season."

That might be an understatement as far as professional debut seasons go. He finished his first season leading his team in batting average [.315], doubles [18], triples [5], runs [48], walks [34], stolen bases [30], and even hit four home runs in just 63 games for DSL Yankees2.

Known as a contact hitter with a mature approach when he signed and perhaps only lacking power, the number of extra-base hits the slightly built hitter racked up were a bit of a shock.

"I am a little surprised but at the same time I've had a better approach at the plate," he opined. "It just turned out that I was able to hit for a little bit more power by making that adjustment at the plate."

As well as he did, however, and even though he answered any questions about his power, Sosa isn't resting on his first-season achievements by any means.

"What I feel I have to do to move the next level is - I would like to work more on my bunting ability, how to control the bat more, how to work on hitting the ball the other way is most important, just being consistent, and finding a ball that I can work with and not out of my strike zone or ability. I need to stay within myself."

Proving to be a multi-dimensional offensive player already, the fact that he entered the organization as one of the better defensive players and yet still improved his skills on that side of the ball gives the Yankees a potentially special player.

"Defensively in my routes to the ball," he listed as the area of his game that he improved the most. "Mainly I've gotten better playing the outfield, my cut-offs, my relays, getting to the ball quicker, my breaks, things like that. I've gotten a lot better in those areas."

Possessing rare polish for such a young player, many scouts believe the 17-year old could have played a couple of levels higher and his coaches believe he is more than ready to prove it in the United States next season.

"He's ready," said Yankees Latin American field coordinator Victor Mata. "He's ready for sure. Sosa is the kind of player that makes contact.

"This kid can play. The swing is beautiful, he can go get it [defensively], and he can throw. He just needs to mature, but he's going to be alright."

Sosa himself believes spending his debut season in the Dominican Summer League was a step he needed to make and even as well as he did, he remains grounded in his development.

"I did have a good year this year but when it comes to playing in the United States all I can do is look towards the future," said Sosa. "Next year when I get there I'll keep working hard and doing what I have to do.

"Hopefully things will turn out well. If I continue to work harder, I think I can do a lot better than I did this past year."

Batting and Power. Sosa is an exceptional hitter who excels in most phases of the offensive game already. An adept gap-hitter who sprays line drives to all fields, he has gotten physically stronger [adding 15 pounds of muscle] since signing with the Yankees and he still has plenty of room to add more. He is a very good bunter, he employs a patient approach at the plate, and his contact hitting abilities makes him a good situational hitter. He does tend to strike out a bit, but that's merely a byproduct of working himself deep into counts. There aren't any weaknesses with the bat.

Base Running and Speed. Sosa is a very fast runner who has the natural speed to be a great base stealer in due time. His rather young age and lack of experience combine to make him a bit raw in the running game, but he is a quick learner and once he learns how to read pitchers moves better, he has the ability to steal 40+ bases in any given season.

Defense. With great range and a very strong arm, Sosa entered the organization as a potentially plus defensive player and he is quickly already turning into one. He has learned to get quick reads on balls coming off the bat, how to take better routes shagging down line-drives, and where to throw the ball in various situations. He can play all three outfield positions well and projects to be a Gold Glove caliber defensive player.

Projection. Sosa is a bit of rarity these days. Despite his young age, his plus defensive ability, great speed, contact hitting ability, and small-ball skills already safely projects him to be a future big league reserve outfielder at minimum cut in the mold of an Endy Chavez type. However, Sosa has intriguing power right now and there's potential to add more as he physically matures in due time. Some scouts have compared him to a young Johnny Damon type - although Sosa has a much stronger arm and a bit more speed - already and there's nothing to dissuade those comparisons yet. Like Damon, Sosa's speed and patience at the plate projects him to be a starting centerfielder someday who could hit atop the lineup.

ETA. 2013. Sosa is more than ready to tackle the long-season leagues in 2009. But while Charleston would seem to be a likely destination for him, the Yankees have proven to be extremely patient in their promotion of their young Latin position prospects. He should be in Charleston but the smart money says he winds up in the short-season leagues.
