Souza could work as the Cubs' DH when the abbreviated regular season gets underway, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The 31-year-old missed all of last year due to a knee injury, so the Cubs likely won't want to push him too hard in the field. Souza, Kyle Schwarber, Ian Happ and Victor Caratini could all split some time at DH as new manager David Ross looks to navigate the 60-game slate.
