Dodgers' Steven Souza: Added to wild-card roster
Souza was added to the roster for Wednesday's NL Wild Card Game against the Cardinals.
Souza was designated for assignment in mid-September, but he'll likely be available in a depth role during Wednesday's postseason contest. The 32-year-old appeared in 17 major-league games during the regular season and slashed .152/.222/.333 with a home run, three RBI and two runs.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Steven Souza: Designated for assignment
Souza was designated for assignment Monday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Souza had been with the team since Tuesday but didn't make the most of his brief opportunity, going 1-for-8 with four strikeouts. As a 32-year-old with a .150/.239/.333 slash line in limited action over the last three seasons, he's unlikely to generate much excitement on the waiver wire. The move clears space for Clayton Kershaw to return from his forearm injury.... See More ... See Less

Souza's contract was selected from Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. He is starting in right field and batting seventh.
The 32-year-old outfielder was hitting .247/.387/.507 with nine home runs and four steals in 46 games at Triple-A. He hit .160 with 10 strikeouts in 13 games in the majors earlier this season. Zach McKinstry was optioned in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less

Dodgers' Steven Souza: Designated for assignment Tuesday
Souza was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
The veteran outfielder signed a minor-league deal with Los Angeles right before Opening Day and later made his way back to the big leagues June 16. He was never able to get anything going at the plate, recording just four hits and two walks across 28 plate appearances. Souza will be placed on waivers for the time being, where he could draw interest from clubs looking to add outfield depth. Jake Reed was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding roster move.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Steven Souza: Clubs big homer against former club
Souza went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's 3-0 win over Arizona.
Souza played 72 games with the Diamondbacks in 2018, clubbing five homers and driving in 29 runs. He's struggled to find his footing in the league since, but the Dodgers gave him another chance in the big leagues after he put up a strong showing with their Triple-A club earlier this season. The 32-year-old came through with the big hit in Friday's win, belting a solo shot to left field in the eighth inning to break a scoreless tie and send Los Angeles on to victory. Souza has gone 2-for-6 in two games with the Dodgers thus far.... See More ... See Less

Souza's contract was selected by the Dodgers on Wednesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Souza was released by the Astros in late March but began the season with Triple-A Oklahoma City. He appeared in 22 minor-league games and slashed .279/.444/.603 with six home runs, 17 runs and 16 RBI. He should fill a depth role in the outfield after right-hander Nate Jones was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Steven Souza: Signs minor-league contract
Souza signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Souza was released by Houston on March 24 but will land a minor-league agreement one day before the start of the regular season. The Dodgers have plenty of talent in the outfield, but Souza could serve as depth at some point in 2021. The 31-year-old has appeared in 83 major-league games with the Diamondbacks and Cubs across the past two seasons and slashed .213/.304/.366 with six home runs, 34 RBI and seven stolen bases....

Steven Souza: Cut by Houston
The Astros plan to release Souza on Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Souza's release strengthens Chas McCormick's hopes of claiming a spot on Houston's Opening Day roster as a fourth outfielder. The 31-year-old Souza failed to get going at the plate during Grapefruit League play, striking out in 13 of his 22 at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Steven Souza: Back in outfield
Souza (foot) will start in right field and will bat sixth in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
After fouling a ball off his foot in a workout Saturday, Souza appeared in games both Sunday and Monday, but he was limited to DH duties in both contests. Now that Souza is back in the outfield, the Astros are seemingly comfortable with the health of his left foot. The injury doesn't look like it will derail Souza's bid to win a bench role on the Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Steven Souza: Serving as DH
Souza (foot) will bat ninth as Houston's designated hitter in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Souza is likely still dealing with some residual soreness after fouling a ball off his foot over the weekend, but the Astros don't seem overly concerned about the issue. He made an appearance off the bench as a pinch hitter in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Nationals, drawing a walk in his lone at-bat. He'll now get the chance to re-enter the starting nine, but the Astros will err on the side of caution and limit him to an offense-only role while he manages the injury. Expect Souza to pick up a start in the outfield in the next few days.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Steven Souza: May play Sunday
Manager Dusty Baker said that Souza (foot) could be available as a reserve for Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Souza was pulled from his workout Saturday after fouling a ball off his left foot, but he doesn't appear to be dealing with anything more than minor soreness after X-rays cleared him of structural damage. The Astros could decide to err on the side of caution and hold him out of Sunday's contest, but he should check back into the lineup within the next day or two.... See More ... See Less

Souza limped to the clubhouse with trainers during practice Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Astros' Steven Souza: Dealing with sore foot
Souza is dealing with left foot soreness after fouling a ball off his foot in practice Saturday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Souza limped into the clubhouse with an issue which was originally undisclosed. Thankfully, he appears to have avoided serious injury.

Astros' Steven Souza: Homers in spring debut
Souza went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Monday's spring game against the Nationals.
Souza started in right field Monday, making his first spring start and beginning his quest to make the Astros' roster as non-roster invitee. He's competing for a job as the fourth outfielder but is also getting work at first base during spring training. "The infield is something that's not super foreign to me," Souza told Brian McTaggart of MLB.com. "I've kind of sporadically messed around over there and made sure I stayed ready because I can see the way the game has moved, and people need to be more versatile." Souza has been limited to just 83 games since the start of 2018 due to underperformance and injury.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Steven Souza: Angling for depth spot
Souza said he's healthy and ready to play all three outfield spots, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Souza has been limited to just 83 games in MLB since the end of the 2017 season due to underperformance and injury. He was limited by a hamstring injury in 2020, and the year before that it was his left knee. Houston's outfield depth was challenged during the offseason when both George Springer and Josh Reddick left town. The Astros' outfield is expected to consist of Michael Brantley in left, Myles Straw in center and Kyle Tucker in right. Souza is competing for a depth spot with prospect Chas McCormick and non-roster invitee Jose Siri. Barring injury to any of the projected starters, the likeliest path to playing time for Souza could come via underperformance by Straw at the plate.... See More ... See Less

Souza briefly appeared in the majors with the Cubs in 2020, hitting .148 with five RBI and 15 strikeouts over 31 plate appearances. He'll likely compete for a spot in the Astros' major-league outfield during spring training in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Steven Souza: Parts ways with Chicago
The Cubs released Souza on Tuesday.
Souza went unclaimed off waivers after the Cubs designated him for assignment over the weekend, but the 31-year-old outfielder will pursue opportunities elsewhere rather than stick around at Chicago's alternate training site. Before being dropped from the 40-man roster, Souza appeared in 11 games and hit .148 with one home run across 27 at-bats.... See More ... See Less
