Rays' Cash likes Steven Souza's disciplined approach during BP
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) Rays manager Kevin Cash likes what he sees early on in camp from outfielder Steven Souza, who was picked up in a December trade from the Nationals. Cash has been particularly impressed with what he has seen during batting practice from the 25-year-old outfielder.
"He's fun to watch," Cash said, per MLB.com. "In batting practice, he's very disciplined with his approach. You can tell he takes his BP rounds with a purpose. And it's kind of impressive, not that he's that young, but it's very easy to get caught up out here when you're hitting on the same field as [Evan] Longoria, [James] Loney and some of the other guys. You can quickly change your approach. He has not done that. He's kind of stuck to it."
Padres, Nats, Rays announce Wil Myers trade
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/19/14) The Padres officially announced an 11-player, three-team trade that sent Wil Myers from Tampa Bay to San Diego on Friday, per the team's official website.
San Diego acquired Myers, catcher Ryan Hanigan, left-handed pitcher Jose Castillo and right-handed pitcher Gerardo Reyes from the Rays. Tampa Bay received catcher Rene Rivera, right-handed pitcher Burch Smith and infielder Jake Bauers from San Diego and outfielder Steven Souza and left-handed pitcher Travis Ott from Washington. Meanwhile, the Nationals received right-handed pitcher Joe Ross and a player to be named later, likely infielder Trea Turner, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Padres, Rays and Nationals complete Wil Myers trade
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/18/14) The Padres, Rays and Nationals have completed a trade that will send Wil Myers to San Diego, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
The deal had been in the works for a few days, but was finally agreed to late Thursday night. Myers, 24, will head to the Padres in the deal. He hit .222/.294/.320 over 325 at-bats with the Rays last season. Myers also missed time due to a wrist injury.
The Padres will also receive catcher Ryan Hanigan and pitchers Gerardo Reyes and Jose Castillo in the deal.
Tampa Bay will receive outfielder Steven Souza and pitcher Travis Ott from the Nationals. Souza, 25, hit .345/.427/.577 in 357 at-bats spread over three levels last year.
The Rays will also receive catcher Rene Rivera, first baseman Jake Bauers and pitcher Burch Smith from San Diego.
Washington is set to acquire pitcher Joe Ross from San Diego. The team will also receive infielder Trea Turner in the deal. Turner was a 2014 draft pick, and cannot be traded until midseason, so he's currently considered a player to be named later.
Padres, Rays and Nationals on the verge of three-team deal
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(12/17/14) The Nationals, Padres and Rays are on the verge of a three-team deal, which would send outfielder Wil Myers to San Diego, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Heyman has confirmed the multiple media reports outlining the full details of the trade. The Padres are set to receive Myers, catcher Ryan Hanigan, pitcher Gerardo Reyes and pitcher Jose Castillo from the Rays.
The Rays are getting two players from the Nationals -- outfielder Steven Souza and pitcher Travis Ott -- and three players from the Padres -- catcher Rene Rivera, first baseman Jake Bauers and pitcher Burch Smith.
The Nationals are getting pitcher Joe Ross from the Padres, as well as a player to be named later, which will be shortstop prospect Trea Turner. Because Turner was a 2014 draft pick, he can't be traded until June.
Steven Souza slugs first career home run
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/17/14) Nationals outfielder Steven Souza went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Braves Wednesday.
Souza entered the game just 1 for 15 in his first exposure to major-league pitching, but he was able to crank out his first career home run in the fifth inning to put the first run of the game on the board. The Nationals were not able to hold onto that lead, however.
|2014 Summary: Steven Souza's biggest claim to fame in 2014 was his diving catch to end Jordan Zimmermann's no-hitter on the final day of the regular season. But his bat was the story in the minors. In 357 at-bats, most of them at Triple-A Syracuse, he hit .345 with 18 homers, 28 steals and a 1.004 OPS, continuing his upward trajectory to emerge as a legitimate prospect at age 25.|
Playing time status: Of course, by the time most legitimate prospects reach age 25, they're already established at the big-league level. Souza was blocked with the Nationals by an outfield with Bryce Harper, Jayson Werth and Denard Span, but the Rays took a liking to him, dealing away Wil Myers this offseason to get him and a few other pieces. He should slot nicely into the hole created by Myers' departure.
2015 Outlook: Though some maturity issues held him back early in his career, Souza eventually made good on all his tools in the minors and looks poised to be a legitimate AL Rookie of the Year candidate. With patience, speed and at least 15-homer power, he figures to be a popular sleeper on Draft Day and may even creep into the middle rounds depending how his spring training goes. For now, you can target him with a late-round pick.
