Steven Souza was removed from Wednesday's game against the A's with an apparent leg injury.

Souza hurt something while attempting to steal second base in the top of the first inning and had to be helped off the field. This could very well be a disabled list situation for the 28-year-old outfielder, who drew a walk in his one plate appearance on Wednesday and boasts an .883 OPS in 90 games this season. It's potentially a big blow for the in-contention Rays.

Steven Souza finished with a solo home run in four at-bats Tuesday in Oakland.

The clout was his 20th homer of the season, as he continues to push his career-high homer total up every time he leaves the yard. He hit 16 homers in 2015, and 17 in 2016, but he has been on another plane this season. And to make him even more attractive from a fantasy perspective, he is hitting .271, which is 27 points over his career mark.

With a few days to go, it's been a very successful first half for the 28-year-old, who is slashing .267/.366/.498 atop the Rays' lineup. A post-hype sleeper coming into the year, few are sleeping on Souza these days.

For the season as a whole, the outfielder is hitting a sturdy .269/.371/.500 with 16 homers and 53 RBI across 286 at-bats.

Souza also walked in the game, finishing 1-for-3 with the homer. If you'd have bet that Steven Souza would be leading the league in walks, with 40, on June 15, you'd have made a lot of money. It's been a good first few months for the 28-year-old, who's hitting .260/.374/.485 with those 12 homers, 39 RBI and 32 runs. Most importantly, he's managed to stay on the field, which has always been his biggest drawback.
Jun 16 - 12:31 AM

Steven Souza went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer, a triple and a steal Friday versus the A's.

It'd be nice if Souza weren't quite so streaky, but he's been a rather valuable fantasy outfielder this year, what with his 11 homers and 36 RBI in 57 games. He entered this one 1-for-20 with 10 strikeouts in June after going 13-for-32 with five homers and seven strikeouts in his final eight games of May.
