"Souza met with the doctors, and we heard all good things," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "He will probably take some dry swings today or tomorrow and then elevate that. I think the plan is let him go home for [the All-Star] break, enjoy the break and then get back here Thursday and start ramping up the workload a little bit."
Cash also said that the "hope" is to have Souza back after the 15-day minimum on July 21 in Philadelphia.
In 79 games for the Rays this season, Souza is batting .210 (57-for-271) with a team-high 15 home runs and 33 RBIs, which ranks third on the team.
