Souza (hip) said his hip was responding well so far and is hoping to play in his first spring game on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Souza, who was playing his best baseball in September before season-ending hip surgery, is facing a pivotal season in 2017, Mike Nabors of MLB.com reports. "I'm my biggest critic," Souza admits. "I know what my flaws are, and I try to improve them every year. For me, it's just consistency, trying to find avenues to explore that and be consistent day in and day out."
Rays Vice President of Baseball Operations Chaim Bloom said that Souza (hip) "will be ready for Opening Day or soon after," Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
