Steven Souza Jr. (OF, ARI) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues

OWNED IN: 28% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Steven Souza Jr. appears to be turning the corner and turning into the 30 home run/16 stolen base player that they traded for this spring. Unfortunately, Souza suffered a pectoral muscle strain in spring training that kept him out for most of the first half (he initially came back in May, but played poorly and landed back on the disabled list with the same injury a few weeks later). No matter his issues early on, he has hits in each of his last four games, including two multi-hit games, and also has eight R+RBI in the same time period.

Since returning to the lineup on July 5, Souza has hit .293/.369/.522 with 19 RBI, 10 of which have come in his last 10 games. He also has three home runs (a part of 13 extra base hits) in this time period and also stole a base on August 6 as well. This hot streak has brought his seasonal slash to .252/.327/.415, but he still only has three home runs and three stolen bases in 38 games.

Considering that Souza has had double digit stolen bases and home runs in basically every season that he has been a professional, fantasy owners should bet on him turning it on as the season continues. This may be just the time to buy Souza in all leagues, as he still has OF3 upside.
