Brandon Guyer replaces Steven Souza in Rays lineup
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/7/15) Steven Souza isn't in the lineup for the second game of the Rays' doubleheader against Kansas City on Tuesday.
Souza has started 74 games in right field. He'll sit for the third time in the last five games, however.
Brandon Guyer will replace Souza in right, starting for the eighth time.
Rays RF Steven Souza lands on DL due to finger laceration
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/7/15) With the All-Star break right around the corner, the Rays opted to place starting right fielder Steven Souza on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday due to a finger laceration. The move is retroactive to July 6.
Souza said he still has no feeling in his right pinkie finger, per the Tampa Bay Times. Souza added there is some nerve damage, but he doesn't know how severe.
He is hoping to return from the disabled list after the minimum stay. He is expected to see another doctor once Tampa Bay returns home.
Souza could probably benefit from the time off, as he heads to the disabled list mired in a 2-for-31 slump in his last 11 games (eight starts). He has 18 strikeouts in that span.
Rays RF Steven Souza sidelined Monday with pinkie injury
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/6/15) A hand issue has Rays right fielder Steven Souza out of the lineup Monday night in Kansas City. He sustained a cut to his right pinkie finger on a hit-by-pitch and required stitches.
A specialist confirmed that the finger is not broken and that there is no tendon damage, per the Tampa Bay Times. There is no plan to place him on the disabled list, but that could change if he continues to struggle with it.
That is just one of his problems. Another is a 2-for-31 slump that has weakened his average to .210.
Rays OF Steven Souza gets stitches on hand after HBP
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/5/15) Rays outfielder Steven Souza had to get stitches on on the pinky of his right hand after being hit by a pitch during Sunday's game against the Yankees.
Souza remained in the game temporarily after being hit. He ran the bases and scored a run but didn't return to the game after that. He isn't sure how much time he will miss because of the injury.
"Right now it's just day to day," Souza said.
Souza received x-rays on the finger, which came up negative. He will undergo more tests on Monday.
"It was a really deep cut, it was deeper than the doctor thought it was when he opened it up," Souza said. "We don't know what's in there. We're going to see a specialist in Kansas City.
"It's just my pinky. A giant laceration that runs up my pinky. I can't really bend it too well now. I'm hoping I wake up tomorrow and it feels little better. But I don't have much feeling in my pinky right now, which is kind of a worry for us. So we'll go from there."
Rays' Steven Souza dealing with hand issue
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/5/15) Rays outfielder Steven Souza had an X-ray on his right hand after Sunday's win over the Yankees, which revealed no broken bones, reports the Tampa Bay Times.
Souza was hit on the hand by a pitch during Sunday's win, but he remained in the game. He is considered day to day and he will see a hand specialist Monday.
|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.
