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

Advice: 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.

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

Advice: 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.

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

Advice: Souza initially hurt the wrist on a collision at home plate with Stephen Vogt, and he then aggravated it later on a swing. The A's should have more on his status later Sunday.

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

Advice: 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.

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

Advice: 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.

Fri, May 22 Rotoworld
Steven Souza went 2-for-4 with an RBI, run scored and stolen base against the Braves on Tuesday.

Advice: 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.
