FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: STEVEN SOUZA COULD BE DOWN WEEKS WITH AN INTERCOSTAL STRAIN

Updating an earlier item, Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Steven Souza has been diagnosed with a strained intercostal muscle in his side and the injury is expected to sideline him for up to two weeks or more.  With the intercostal muscle being crucial in a hitter's swing, Souza now will likely fall quite a bit behind in his preparation for the upcoming season.  A third outfielder in fantasy baseball who can hit 15 home runs and steals 15 bases or more, Souza's massive contact issue problems make it a struggle for him to hit even .240.  An MRI will be done on the Souza to see if there is anything more serious than the strain but either way this is a decent injury on the severity meter this early in camp.  There is still plenty of time for Souza to be ready for Opening Day but for now you have to push him down some on your cheat sheets prior to your draft.
