Jorge Bolivar Sosa is a Major League Baseball pitcher with the Houston Astros organization. Sosa stands at 6'2" tall and weighs well over 200 pounds. He bats and throws right-handed.
Signed by the Colorado Rockies as an amateur free agent in 1995, Sosa spent his first five minor league seasons as an outfielder, but was converted to a pitcher when it was discovered that his arm strength was superior to his batting abilities. He throws his fastball as high as 99 MPH, but usually resides in the mid-90's. He also throws a curveball, slider, and a changeup.
