Phillies Utility Player Taking Reps In Center Field; Vying For Opening Day Role

Expanding his versatility.

Philadelphia Phillies utility man will get some outfield work this spring.

With both Matt Vierling and Nick Maton joining the Detroit Tigers this offseason, Sosa has an increased chance of opening the season in a reserve role for the Phillies.

As a result, some added versatility only helps to land him a role on the Phillies' 40-man roster as he looks to develop into a super-utility specialist.

As of right now, there is no backup option behind Brandon Marsh in center, so if Sosa proves capable, he could take over that role.

The twenty-six-year-old joined the Phillies in the second half of the 2022 season, getting into 25 games and posting a strong .315/.345/.593 triple-slash line, with two home runs, 13 RBIs, three stolen bases and nine runs scored.
