Jorge Sosa allowed five runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings Saturday in his first start in 11 days.
Sosa pitched just 1 2/3 innings during his break, so that he was inconsistent once again today hardly came as a surprise. He's expected to be sent to the bullpen once Horacio Ramirez comes off the disabled list.
Now, this may change with the Davies injury, although it looked like minor discomfort.
Don't get me wrong, it's been suggested many times before. I'm just not sure who was "expecting" it to happen. Logically it would have made sense since he's been the worst starter for Atlanta. But that's only because Horacio hasn't been given a chance to stink up the joint (he got hurt in his first start and has been out until now). Its likely that Sosa is better stuited for the pen than Horacio, and if that's the deciding factor, fine. But Ramirez is definitely not the superior starter.
