Rays | Steven Souza starting vs. Dodgers

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 09:51:58 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is starting in right field and batting fifth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy. Rays OF Brandon Guyer is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Both Souza and Guyer are fringe owns in deep mixed leagues given their poor batting averages and modest power upside. Souza is a potential flier in daily contests Wednesday, though.

Rays | Steven Souza not in the lineup

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 15:55:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris Tuesday, July 26. OF Brandon Guyer will start in right field and is batting seventh, while OF Corey Dickerson will start in left field and is batting fourth.

Fantasy Tip: Sousa is not in the lineup because the team is not allowed to use a designated hitter in a National League stadium. Dickerson should be a decent starting option in some deeper mixed leagues, while Guyer likely only has value in AL-only leagues.

Rays | Steven Souza out of the lineup

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 15:15:15 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with OF Oswaldo Arcia hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is 2-for-26 (.077) this month, and he's not a good option against Kendall Graveman.

Rays | Steven Souza out vs. Rockies

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:16:13 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 19. OF Oswaldo Arcia is starting in right field and is batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia has intriguing pop, but he's an all-or-nothing swinger with a .219 average between the Twins and Rays in 48 games. Consider him a deeper sleeper as a boom-or-bust DFS pick tonight with a little more appeal because he's playing at Coors Field. Souza is likely receiving a normal day of rest.

Rays | Brandon Guyer returns to lineup Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 07:33:46 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer is back in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP David Price Sunday, July 10, hitting fourth and playing center field. OF Steven Souza is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer is just 3-for-25 (.120) during the month of July and has never faced Price in his career but may be worth considering as an inexpensive flier in DFS based on the fact that he's batting cleanup.

Rays | Two Rays sit against lefty

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 06:30:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Logan Morrison and OF Corey Dickerson are out of the lineup Thursday, July 7, against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago. OF Steven Souza is hitting cleanup, and 2B Nick Franklin is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Souza has a .263-10-27 line and has upside at the cleanup spot. Franklin has a .303-1-11 line, and he's a low-end option against Santiago in DFS.

Rays | Steven Souza back in the lineup

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 20:48:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza returned to the lineup Wednesday, July 6, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim one night after being pulled for lack of hustle. "I was really impressive with the way he handled it," manager Kevin Cash said. "He owned it. He had a lapse. We all have lapses. We'll look to move past it now."

Fantasy Tip: It appears safe to get Souza back into the active fantasy lineup if you reserved him as a precaution. He'll get a chance to play and he likely won't be loafing again anytime soon.

Rays | Steven Souza lifted for loafing

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 18:47:58 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza was lifted early from the game Tuesday, July 5, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The removal was not injury related, but apparently due to a lack of hustle in watching a fly ball which was then misplayed.

Fantasy Tip: It's not likely to be something which lands Souza in the doghouse long term, and he should be back in the lineup Wednesday. However, that's purely speculation, so if you're in a daily fantasy league or normally play him in DFS, you might want to hold off until he has a chance to start and prove himself again.

Rays | Steven Souza back in lineup Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 10:09:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Saturday, July 2, batting sixth. In addition, C Curt Casali is batting ninth and starting behind the plate, with C Hank Conger receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Souza is making his first appearance since being activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 1, but he should be avoided in daily fantasy contests until he can make it through at least one full game without experiencing any setbacks. Casali is batting just .149 in 74 at-bats at Tropicana Field this season and is not a great fantasy option.

Rays | Steven Souza set for rehab assignment

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 13:22:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (hip) hit two home runs during a simulated game Thursday, June 30, and is tentatively scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Class A Charlotte Friday, July 1. He also noted the power has returned to his lower body.

Fantasy Tip: Souza's posted a respectable 26 runs, 10 home runs, 25 RBI, three stolen bases with a .255/.315/.443 slash line through 57 games before the hip injury. He should be owned in all deep mixed leagues now that is he close to returning from the disabled list. Check back for updates on his expected return date.
