Steven Souza is not in the Rays' lineup Wednesday.

It's simply a day off. Brandon Guyer will cover right field while Souza rests.
Jun 24 - 9:16 AM

Steven Souza finished 3-for-4 with a solo home run, helping the Rays defeat his former team in the Nationals on Wednesday.

Souza was last seen on the same field as the Nationals when he made a terrific catch to preserve Jordan Zimmermann's no-hitter to finish the regular season last year. He took Zimmermann yard in the fifth inning to break a scoreless tie. Souza is batting .222/.323/.444 with 13 home runs, 30 RBI, and eight stolen bases to date.

Steven Souza jacked a three-run homer in Wednesday's 6-5, 10-inning triumph over the Angels.

Souza's three-run homer off Hector Santiago in the sixth helped to dig Tampa Bay out of an early 4-0 hole. He finished 1-for-4. Souza is going to be a mixed league asset before long, and he's already worth using. While the .228 average hurts -- and is no sure bet to improve before season's end -- the young outfielder brings to the table the ever allusive blend of power and speed lusted after in fantasy worlds. At present moment, he's on pace for 33 homers and 21 steals.

Steven Souza went 3-for-5 with two doubles and homered in his third consecutive game as the Rays topped the Orioles on Sunday.

Souza hasn't hit much for average, but he has shown terrific power as of late. He's hitting .237/.333/.475 with 10 home runs, 22 RBI, and seven stolen bases.

Steven Souza returned to the Rays lineup with a bang on Friday, blasting a solo home run in a losing effort against the Orioles.

Souza hadn't played since leaving Sunday's game with a sprained left wrist after a collision with Steven Vogt. The solo blast off Miguel Gonzalez was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night and he's now hitting .224/.322/.421 with eight homers and 18 RBI on the season.

Steven Souza (wrist) hopes to return to the Rays' lineup on Friday.

Souza sprained his left wrist in a home plate collision on Sunday, but said he's only dealing with some mild pain and no swelling. While he's hoping to return Friday, he should have a better idea about a timetable after going for tests Tuesday.
May 26 - 3:55 PM

Steven Souza (wrist) is out of the Rays' lineup again Tuesday against the Mariners.

Souza sprained his left wrist in a collision at home plate on Sunday and will miss his second straight game. He's considered day-to-day. Brandon Guyer will start in right field and bat leadoff Tuesday while Jake Elmore will play left.
May 26 - 2:42 PM

Steven Souza (wrist) is not in the Rays' starting lineup on Monday evening against the Mariners.

Souza suffered a sprained left wrist Sunday in a nasty collision at home plate with A's catcher Stephen Vogt and is considered day-to-day for now. Brandon Guyer is starting in right field and Jake Elmore is in left field in Monday's series opener versus Seattle.
May 25 - 2:49 PM

Steven Souza has been diagnosed with a sprained left wrist, and was spotted wearing a brace after Sunday's game.

He sustained the injury in a collision with A's catcher Stephen Vogt on Sunday. While initial X-rays came back negative, he will undergo an MRI on Monday to make sure there's no further damage. At this stage, it doesn't sound like a trip to the disabled list is imminent, but check for updates before setting weekly lineups on Monday.
May 24 - 6:53 PM

Steven Souza left Sunday's game versus the Athletics with a left wrist injury.

May 24 - 2:05 PM

Steven Souza smacked a solo homer and stole a base against the Athletics on Friday.

Souza also drew a walk and scored twice. The 26-year-old is hitting just .229 on the year and has struck out in 38 percent of his plate appearances, but he's remained useful in fantasy leagues with seven home runs and seven stolen bases.
May 22 - 11:28 PM

Steven Souza Jr. struck out all four times he was up Thursday against the A's.

Souza has followed up his 30-strikeout April by racking up 32 with 10 days left to go in May. The Rays keep batting him second anyway, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see that change soon. On the plus side, he is still drawing walks and hitting the ball hard when he does make contact.
May 21 - 10:38 PM

Steven Souza went 2-for-4 with an RBI, run scored and stolen base against the Braves on Tuesday.

Souza put his skills on display in the game, showing why he was such a popular target in drafts before the season. The outfielder stole his sixth base of the season while collecting his 16th RBI. Souza is hitting .231/.331/.410 with six homers and 18 runs scored on the season.
