Sosa to bullpen

on .

We'll give him a chance in the eighth and ninth innings and see how he does," Cox said. "He's got the stuff to do it and we need another option down there." Cox said that Sosa could be ready to pitch out of the bullpen as early as Saturday, the middle of the Braves' three-game weekend series at Tampa Bay. Sosa's scheduled start on Sunday at Tampa Bay is likely to be made by Chuck James, who would be recalled from Class AAA Richmond. Converted reliever Lance Cormier - filling in for John Thomson - will start Saturday night against the Devil Rays.
Finally, Chuck James is a member of the rotation. It looks like Thomson's spot for the time being will be filled by Cormier. When Kyle Davies returns in mid-July, he'll get a spot in the rotation with Thomson probably traded. We may be losing a lot of games, but at least we'll soon have 2 former top 100 prospects in the rotation to join Smoltz and Hudson.
