We won’t have to wait long to get our first look at Lenin Sosa with White socks. According to Tony La Russa, he can play tomorrow and will not stop there.

“You will see him,” said La Russa. You will see him often.

The team also liked what they saw in Double-A.

“He’s standing at the stove and he has a very beautiful style that shows he’s ready,” La Russa said. “Whether it’s not too cool for school or not too fussy. They’ve been in awe of him since the first week of the season. I was talking to (Double-A manager Justin Jirshel) today. He plays well in defense in three positions, but at bats he looks good as a striker.”

Sosa’s results confirmed what the development team saw. In 62 games in Double-A, he is hitting .331/.384/.549 with 14 home runs and 48 RBIs. His approach at such a young age also reminds La Russa of another young phenom who quickly found success at the major league level: Andrew Vaughn.

“He looks older on the plate than he really is in terms of experience,” La Russa said. “He should probably play second base, but he can play third, he can play short.”

That versatility could help Sosa secure a foothold in the majors, especially with another useful infielder, Danny Mendik, out for the rest of the season. From there, there is no limit for Sosa.

“For right now he is going to help in any way he can,” La Russa said. “But when you add up his year, you have to believe that he will be an everyday player. He’s been there every day, and he rips the cover off the ball. The fact that he can win back three places in the infield makes it easier.”
