BRISTOL - Wesleyan’s Kelvin Sosa will be a name to watch out for on this year’s Bristol Blues roster.

The freshman from the Bronx, N.Y. is a starting pitcher at the University and recently put together a complete game shutout against Williams College while striking out seven batters.

It was the fourth start this year that Sosa didn’t give up an earned run.

He has been a big reason why Wesleyan is off to a 20-13 start this season, with the team having won six of the eight games that Sosa has appeared in this season.

Those games have been against Greenville University, Allegheny College, Roger Williams University, Middlebury College, Amherst College and Williams.

Sosa is currently 4-2 with a 2.14 ERA and 43 strikeouts in 42 innings pitched.

He will be one of four left-handed pitchers on the Blues roster this summer.

“Kelvin is a quality arm who has had a fantastic season,” Bristol Blues manager Ronnie Palmer said.

“We look for him to be in the mix as a starter but he can also be used out of the pen; as he performed in both roles during the spring.”
