Souza hasn't required a brace for his surgically repaired left knee since mid-May and has been pleased with how his rehab process has gone thus far, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports. "There's still a long way to go," Souza said. "But if it keeps going like this, I'm extremely confident that I'm going to be back to normal." The Diamondbacks have already ruled Souza out for the season after he suffered a torn ACL and LCL and partial tears of his PCL and posterior capsule during a March 25 exhibition game. Given the extensive ligament damage he sustained, Souza noted that some surgeons wanted him to keep his leg immobilized for 12 weeks, but the outfielder instead opted for a more aggressive treatment method that allowed him to shed his brace in half that time. Souza still has a long way to go in the rehab process, but the 30-year-old remains optimistic that he'll be back to full strength by next spring, if not sooner.
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."

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.
