Jorge Sosa said his strained left hamstring feels better than it did an hour or so ago, but then again he’s been sitting on ice for that time. Sosa said he doesn’t think he will miss his next start, but that means nothing now.
We’ll know more in the morning, especially if it stiffens. Trying to be logical for a moment, it would be crazy for him to try it. He’s next scheduled for Thursday in Houston, which would be his last before the All-Star break.
The smart thing would be to shut him down for the rest of the first half, which should mean putting him on the DL to make room for Mike Pelfrey. Why send somebody else out to the minors to hang on to Sosa in the off-chance he makes that start?
Shut him down now and be done with it.
