A four-year, senior reliever with the Cavaliers, Sousa is a 6-foot-3 pitcher with a fastball/slider combination who has never put up the numbers scout are looking for in the ACC. This spring he posted a 5.23 ERA with 61 strikeouts and 22 walks through 23 appearances and 43 innings of work. Over his last two seasons he’s struck out 12+ batters per nine innings, but his walk rate has been high throughout his time in college. Sousa was drafted by the Nationals in the 34th round of the 2017 draft and was seen frequently out of high school where he seemed like a top-three-round pick with a 90-94 mph fastball with life and and a quick arm. His performance has never lived up to the hype that his prep career might have suggested.
