The Astros have sold the rights of RHP Henry Sosa to the Kia Tigers of the Korean Baseball Organization.

It's a little surprising, as Sosa is just 26 and has a fastball that sits in the mid-90s. But, he posted a 5.23 ERA in 10 starts for the Astros last year and wasn't any better this season at Triple-A Oklahoma City, holding a 5.12 mark with just 21 strikeouts over 31 2/3 innings.

Astros sent RHP Henry Sosa outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Sosa will be in the Oklahoma City rotation to start this year. He's probably first in line for a call-up if there's an injury in the major-league starting rotation.

Henry Sosa was quality against the Rockies Thursday, limiting them to three runs on nine hits and a walk over 6 1/3 innings in a 9-6 win.

Sosa struggled a couple starts ago against the Nationals, but for the most part he’s been quite good of late, allowing three or fewer runs in five of his last six outings. He’s going to have to get his control in order and ultimately probably better profiles as a reliever, but he’s held his own thus far. Sosa will bring a 4.68 ERA and 1.40 WHIP into his final start next week, which will come against the Cardinals.

Henry Sosa yielded two runs over six innings Saturday against the Cubs, as the Astros lost their 100th game of the season.

Sosa limited the Cubs to just four hits, but also walked five, including four in the first inning. He struck out five in the loss and now holds a 4.74 ERA and 33/20 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings over his first eight major league starts. He doesn't come recommended with a start against the Rockies next week.

Henry Sosa was lit up by the Nationals Sunday, yielding five earned runs over 2 2/3 innings in a loss.

He gave up seven hits -- including three homers -- while striking out two and walking a pair. Coming off three stellar starts, in which he had allowed only four runs over 18 innings, we told you we would have a hard time recommending him in NL-only formats. Today, he showed precisely why.

Henry Sosa hurled six innings of one-run ball in a victory over the Pirates Tuesday.

He struck out seven and allowed only two hits and a walk. It was the second consecutive stellar start Sosa has turned in after he picked up his first major league victory by holding the Giants to one run in six innings on Thursday. His ERA is down to 4.34, but we would have a hard time recommending him in NL-only formats with fantasy playoffs beginning.

Henry Sosa picked up his first major league victory by holding the Giants to one run in six innings on Thursday.

Facing his old team for the second straight outing, Sosa had easily his best showing in four starts to date. He's 1-2 with a 5.09 ERA overall, and he's not recommended in NL-only leagues.

Henry Sosa will start against the Giants on Thursday.

He'll be working on three days' rest. Sosa, 26, has a 6.35 ERA and 13/6 K/BB ratio in 17 innings over his first three major league starts. He's not a recommended option in fantasy leagues, even against the struggling Giants' offense.
Tue, Aug 23, 2011 07:13:00 PM

Henry Sosa yielded four earned runs over five innings as part of a no-decision against the Giants Sunday.

Sosa struck out three, walked one and gave up four hits. He's given up exactly four runs in each of his three major league starts and hasn't sniffed a win in any of them. With Houston's inept offense backing him, there's not much upside here.
Sun, Aug 21, 2011 07:16:00 PM

Henry Sosa allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks in six innings of work on Monday, falling to 0-2 in Houston's 4-3 loss to the Cubs at home.

He struck out six and walked two. Sosa has been just south of quality in both of his first two major-league starts, and is looking like he could offer some value in NL-only leagues down the stretch. He'll get the Giants at home this Sunday.
Mon, Aug 15, 2011 11:23:00 PM

Henry Sosa has been given another start.

Sosa will get the Cubs at home on Monday. Making his major-league debut on Wednesday, Sosa allowed four runs on six hits and three walks in six innings of work against the Diamondbacks. He has an electric fastball, but little else. He's unlikely to be an asset in NL-only leagues down the stretch.

Making his major-league debut, Henry Sosa allowed four runs on six hits and three walks in six innings of work on Wednesday evening, taking the loss in Houston's 6-3 setback against the Diamondbacks.

He struck out four. Not exactly an inspring effort, but more than enough to earn Sosa another start. In all likelihood, he'll remain in the Astros rotation through the end of the season as long as he doesn't implode.

Astros purchased the contract of RHP Henry Sosa from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Sosa, who was acquired from the Giants in the Jeff Keppinger deal, will take J.A. Happ's place in the starting rotation Wednesday night against the Diamondbacks. The 26-year-old right-hander has a 4.53 ERA and 77/32 K/BB ratio over 89 1/3 innings in the minors this season, both as a starter and a reliever. He threw seven shutout innings in his most recent start at Triple-A, but we wouldn't trust him in fantasy leagues right out of the gate.

Astros acquired RHPs Henry Sosa and Jason Stoffel from the Giants for INF Jeff Keppinger.

Sosa has bounced between starting and relieving this season, posting a 5.51 ERA and 57/25 K/BB ratio over 63 2/3 innings between Double-A Richmond and Triple-A Fresno. Now 25 years old, Sosa is getting a little old to be considered a prospect, but it's worth a shot to take a chance on his electric arm.
