Player Notes
Steven Souza went hitless in a third straight game Wednesday, dropping his average to .121.

Advice: Souza, bothered by a sore right forearm in recent days, is just 4-for-33 this spring. He's fanned 11 times and walked just once. Since March 7, he has two hits, both of them homers. If this keeps up, the Rays will have to weigh sending Souza down to begin the year. Such a move would open up playing time for David DeJesus, a player the team would still like to trade.

Steven Souza's arm is "fine," per the Rays.

Advice: Souza has been bothered by some right forearm tightness since last Friday and he took a pitch off that same arm in Monday's Grapefruit League game, but these are all minor issues. He underwent an MRI this weekend that turned up clean and he remains an intriguing fantasy sleeper for the 2015 season. Souza, 25, hit .350/.432/.590 with 18 homers, 75 RBI, and 26 stolen bases in 96 games last year at Triple-A.

Steven Souza left Monday's Grapefruit League game after taking a pitch off his right arm.

Advice: It's the same arm that has been causing Souza discomfort since late last week. He had an MRI over the weekend that came back clean, but the Rays might now send him for X-rays to see whether the HBP caused any new damage. Souza is one of our favorite sleepers for the 2015 fantasy baseball season. He batted .350/.432/.590 with 18 homers, 75 RBI, and 26 stolen bases in 96 games last year at Triple-A.

Steven Souza (arm) is back in the Rays' Grapefruit League lineup on Monday afternoon.

Advice: Souza wasn't expected to return until Wednesday, but he apparently felt great during batting practice Sunday. An MRI taken this weekend showed no structural damage in his right forearm, which tightened up on him Friday during a game. The 25-year-old outfielder is one of our favorite fantasy sleepers for the 2015 season.

Steven Souza (arm) won't play in Grapefruit League games until after the Rays' off day Tuesday.

Advice: Souza left Friday's game with forearm tightness after suffering a cramp diving for a ball. He will take batting practice Sunday, but Rays manager Kevin Cash said the team wants to be cautious with the outfielder. An MRI came back clean, so Souza should be fine in a few days.

Steven Souza is undergoing a precautionary MRI after leaving Friday's game versus the Blue Jays with right forearm tightness.

Advice: Souza injured his arm while attempting a diving catch. That he initially stayed in the game and the Rays are calling the exam precautionary suggests there shouldn't be too much worry yet, but we'll have to wait and see what the MRI says. Souza has breakout potential in 2015.
