      Diamondbacks' Steven Souza: Ditches knee brace

      Steven 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 Arizona 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.

      Diamondbacks' Steven Souza: Getting MRI

      Steven Souza (knee) is slated to undergo an MRI on Tuesday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.The Arizona Diamondbacks are sending Souza in for scans after he hurt his left knee during Monday's 6-3 exhibition loss to the White Sox. Souza sustained the injury after stepping awkwardly on home plate while scoring a run in the fourth inning and required the assistance of two trainers to get off the field. Given the nature of the setback, Souza seems likely to open the season on the injured list, though a timeline for his return won't be formally established until the results of the MRI are revealed. Adam Jones and Ketel Marte would likely both be in line for full-time roles in the outfield alongside David Peralta if Souza does indeed wind up on the IL.

      Diamondbacks' Steven Souza: Helped off field

      Steven 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 Arizona Diamondbacks if the injury is deemed significant.

      Diamondbacks' Steven Souza: Slugs pinch-hit homer in finale

      Steven Souza (back) supplied a pinch-hit solo home run in his lone plate appearance during Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Padres in 10 innings.Souza didn't make any further starts for the Arizona Diamondbacks after experiencing back spasms in a Sept. 23 contest against the Rockies, but he came off the bench in two games, suggesting he won't be hindered by the issue heading into the offseason. The outfielder wrapped up an injury-marred campaign with a meager .678 OPS -- his lowest mark since his debut season of 2014 -- and managed only five home runs across 272 plate appearances. Since Souza remains under club control for two more years, he'll likely have a fairly clear path to a full-time role in 2019, especially with fellow outfielder A.J. Pollock headed for free agency this winter.
