Winter League destroyer: Carlos Sosa

Early on in the Liga Mexicana del Pacifico winter league, the OBP leader is Carlos Sosa, the outfielder who is part of the San Diego Padres organization. Through 7 games in the Winter League, he has a .556 OBP, 1.234 OPS, 2.29 PPG, and 1.12 ABPP. Sosa has spent 11 years in the minors and is 28 years old. He actually spent 2 years in independent ball. After having an OBP of .389 in indy-ball, the Padres picked him up. He spent 2011 in AA and had a .375 OBP, 1.04 PPG, and 2.48 PAPP. You would certainly hope for better than a .805 OPS in AA, but it appears that is about as high as you are going to get, as Sosa is certainly in the prime of his career. One has to wonder though if his ability to get on base in both winter ball and AA will cause anyone to ponder giving him a shot in the big leagues.
