Souza (knee) underwent his scheduled surgery Tuesday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Manager Torey Lovullo didn't offer much in terms of a timeline other than to say that Souza will not play in 2019. "Everything went perfectly fine, just the way it was anticipated," Lovullo said. "The doctor saw exactly what the MRI showed, all the necessary repairs were made and we feel like he's going to start to come out the other end starting today."
Souza will undergo surgery on his left knee Tuesday in Cincinnati, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Souza sustained a torn ACL and LCL along with partial tears of his PCL and posterior lateral capsule during an exhibition game this past week. He will not play in 2019, and manager Torey Lovullo said the outfielder faces a "grinding" year of rehabilitation.
The Diamondbacks placed Souza (knee) on the 10-day injured list Thursday. Souza is headed for season-ending surgery on his left knee after sustaining full tears of his ACL, LCL and posterial lateral capsule and a partial PCL tear during Monday's exhibition game against the White Sox. He'll head to the 10-day IL for the time being but will likely get transferred to the 60-day IL when the Diamondbacks require an open spot on the 40-man roster.
Souza (knee) will require season-ending surgery, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. This is a brutal blow for Souza and the Diamondbacks. The outfielder hurt his left knee during Monday's exhibition loss to the White Sox, and a subsequent MRI revealed an ACL, LCL and partial PCL tear, along with a posterior lateral capsule tear. With Souza set to miss the entire season, look for Adam Jones and Ketel Marte to assume full-time roles in the outfield alongside David Peralta.
Souza appeared to suffer an injury to his left knee while running the bases in Monday's exhibition against the White Sox, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. There was no play at the plate, but Souza stumbled and fell upon crossing home and was spotted holding his knee shortly after. He would need assistance just to get off the field. The 29-year-old has been plagued by injuries in the past (he played 72 games last season), although he appeared on track to begin the 2019 campaign healthy prior to this incident. This would be a devastating loss for the Diamondbacks if the injury is deemed significant.
