Jorge Sosa – His New York Mets Career 2007,2008

Jorge SosaThe Mets signed right-handed pitcher Jorge Sosa as a free agent prior to the 2007.  Sosa started the season in the minors before being promoted in May.  He made his debut on May 5 against the Arizona Diamondbacks. He allowed two runs over 6 1/3 innings and was the winning pitcher.  Sosa would win his next two starts in fact he would win six of his first seven.  But after losing three straight starts at the end of July Sosa was moved to the bullpen.

Sosa initially had success in the bullpen but then stumbled down the stretch as did most of the Mets bullpen as the Mets suffered through one of the worst September collapses in baseball history. Sosa finished the season with a 9-8 record and 4.47 ERA.

Sosa returned in 2008 and started the season pitching out of the bullpen.  He appeared in 20 games but despite posting a 4-1 record his ERA was 7.06.  The Mets released him on May 22. 

Sosa appeared in 62 games for the Mets.  His record was 13-9 with a 4.89 ERA.

While with the Mets Sosa wore number 29.

Jorge Sosa also played for the following teams:
Tampa Bay Devil Rays – 2002-2004
Atlanta Braves – 2005,2006
St. Louis Cardinals – 2006
Washington Nationals – 2009
