Thu, 27 Aug 2015 15:38:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (hand) has been allowed to starting swinging a bat again after undergoing an X-ray on his broken hand. Souza said he hopes to be able to return to the team in the middle of September.

Fantasy Tip: Souza ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has struggled with injuries this season and is only hitting .214 this season. Owners on FantasyScore probably will be able to find better options to use when Souza returns to the lineup.

Rays | Steven Souza out 4-6 weeks

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 08:12:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (hand) will miss four to six weeks after X-rays showed a fractured left hand. He was put on the 15-day disabled list and OF Mikie Mahtook was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move. Manager Kevin Cash said Mahtook and OF Brandon Guyer will receive the bulk of the playing time in Souza's absence.

Fantasy Tip: In most leagues, Souza should be dropped, since he's unlikely to have much of a fantasy impact for the rest of the season. Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) and Mahtook are deep sleepers on FantasyScore, and their fantasy value in deep leagues might be minimal, too, if they split playing time.

Rays | Steven Souza could return next week

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 15:54:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (pinkie) is expected to join Class A Charlotte this weekend, and he is expected to return from the disabled list next week in the series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a disappointing .210 average (57-for-271) this year, Souza ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has 20-20 potential and is an affordable source of power and stolen bases, assuming his injury doesn't sap some pop from his stick. The rookie justifies a roster spot in all leagues if you can afford to take the hit in average.

Rays | Steven Souza doing baseball activities

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 13:30:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (pinkie) is doing baseball activities Friday, July 10, including dry swings. He will amp up his rehab next Thursday during the All-Star break, and he's expected to come off the disabled list when he's eligible.

Fantasy Tip: Souza ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has 20-20 potential for the Rays, but his batting average (.210) will hurt his owners. He may have been dropped in a lot of leagues. If you can withstand his poor average and contact skills, he'll definitely be useful in the second half of the season.
