Rays' Cash hopes that Souza can make an impact at the plate in 2015
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Rays manager Kevin Cash said he believes outfielder Steven Souza can make a major impact at the plate this season after hitting .350 with 18 home runs and 75 RBI for Triple-A Syracuse, per MLB.com.|
Souza was traded in December from Washington to Tampa Bay. He hit .130 with two home runs and two RBIs in 21 at-bats during his three separate stints last season for the Nationals.
"Yeah, I hope so," Cash said. "I think when you say that you're asking a lot of a guy who doesn't have much experience at this level. But we do very much like what he's done at Triple-A and everything he's done since being here. But the last thing we want him to think is that he has to come in and carry it."
Souza, Rivera return to Rays spring lineup Wednesday

|(3/25/15) Rays catcher Rene Rivera (calf) and outfielder Steven Souza (arm) returned to the spring lineup Wednesday against the Twins.
Rivera is batting .211 (4 for 19) with one home run and two RBI in seven games, while Souza is batting .133 (4 for 30) with two home runs and six RBI in 11 games.
Rays OF Steven Souza hit by pitch, exits game

|(3/23/15) Rays outfielder Steven Souza was hit on the right arm by a pitch in Monday's game against the Pirates and removed from the game, but the team says he's fine, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Souza was scheduled to come out of the game after the at-bat in which he was plunked. His bat has yet to heat up this spring, as the outfielder is 4 for 30 with one double and two home runs in Grapefruit League play.
Rays OF Steven Souza makes quick return to spring lineup
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Rays outfielder Steven Souza made a quicker than expected return to the spring lineup Monday against the Pirates.
Souza, who left Friday's game due to tightness in his right forearm, wasn't expected back until Wednesday. However, he started in right field and hit sixth Monday.
Souza is batting .143 (4 for 28) with one double, two home runs and five RBI in 10 spring games.
|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.
