Rays' Steven Souza leaves game with wrist injury
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rays outfielder Steven Souza left Sunday's game during a third inning at bat, after suffering a sprained left wrist on a foul tip. Souza is considered day to day after colliding with catcher Stephen Vogt at home in the first inning, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

"On the collision, I kind of felt something and figured it would just go away," Souza said. "Took some swings on deck. It was lingering a little bit, but nothing too severe. But on the check-swing, I felt the pain. We’re just being precautious."

Souza will undergo an MRI on his wrist on Monday. He was replaced by Joey Butler

Rays OF's Kevin Kiermaier, David DeJesus sit against lefty Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

With the Rays facing a left-hander on Friday, manager Kevin Cash has loaded his lineup with right-handed swingers.

Outfielders Kevin Kiermaier and David DeJesus are being held out of the lineup against the A's. Kiermaier had started nine straight games for the Rays, but will take a seat on Friday, despite the fact he actually has a higher batting average against lefties (.267) than righties (.232).

DeJesus meanwhile has been on a tear lately. He's batting an even .400 (10 for 25) over his current seven-game hitting streak. But he's been heavily shielded against southpaws this season, having just three at-bats against left-handed pitching. 

Joey Butler will enter the lineup and bat fifth while playing left field. Brandon Guyer moves up to the leadoff spot and will play center field on Friday.
