Steven Jeffrey Souza, Jr. (born April 24, 1989) is an American professional baseball outfielder for the Washington Nationals organization of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Career[edit]

Souza was drafted by the Washington Nationals in the third round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft out of Cascade High School in Everett, Washington.[1][2] He was added to the 40 man roster on November 1, 2013.[3] He was called up to the majors for the first time on April 12, 2014.[4] Souza made his major league debut on April 13 in a game against the Atlanta Braves. He entered as a defensive replacement in the seventh inning and struck out in his only at-bat of the game, which ended in a 10-2 loss for the Nationals.[5] He was sent down to the Syracuse Chiefs on May 5 in order to make room for Scott Hairston, who had just come off the disabled list.
