Former MLB slugger Sammy Sosa has been looking ghastly for quite some time now. Sosa’s skin coloring change first became evident back in 2009, when speculation began to build that he was suffering from some sort of skin condition like the one Michael Jackson had. On Tuesday, Cincinnati Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman had a little fun at Sosa’s expense.
“#chapmanswagg y no soy #sammy #sosa lol @hor danmvpbarber,” Chapman wrote on Instagram.
Those of you who speak Spanish know that what Chapman said translates to “I am not Sammy Sosa.”
Sosa claimed over three years ago that his skin had lightened because a facial cream he was using. He was still looking sickly when he made a public appearance last month, and some of the photos on his wife’s Instagram account still show a pretty pale looking Slammin’ Sammy.
We still have no idea what’s going on, but it certainly doesn’t look healthy.
