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.

Rays | Steven Souza has nerve damage

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 16:02:32 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (pinkie) said he has no feeling in his pinkie finger and is dealing with some nerve damage, but he's unsure how severe it is. He is hoping to return when eligible July 21, but he's likely to consult with another doctor at home.

Fantasy Tip: It's totally possible that Souza ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) isn't ready to return when eligible later this month. He has 20-20 potential, but this injury could affect his power in the second half of the season. If you don't have the room to stash him on the DL in a shallow mixed league, dropping him wouldn't be crazy.

Rays | Steven Souza avoiding DL

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 14:29:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (pinkie) visited with a hand specialist Monday, July 6, and it was confirmed that he doesn't have a broken pinkie finger or ligament damage. He will avoid the disabled list for now, but that could change depending on how he feels in the next few days.

Fantasy Tip: Avoiding Souza ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) for at least the next few days in all fantasy formats seems like the smart move here. In shallow mixed leagues, holding onto Souza could be a battle if you're in need of a roster spot. He has 20-20 potential, but he's only worth rostering if you can withstand his average hit.
