Jon Morosi of FOX Sports hears that the Rays will consider offers for third baseman Evan Longoria.
Team president Matt Silverman recently said that the Rays are "open to everything," so we can include Longoria among that. He's coming off a resurgent year where he slugged a career-high 36 homers, so this could be a smart time to listen to offers. However, beat writer Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reported out of the weekend that the Rays "remain uninterested" in dealing the face of their franchise. Chances are they'd have to be blown away by an offer to legitimately consider it. Longoria, 31, is owed $99 million over the next six seasons. Nov 8 - 2:19 PM

According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays "remain uninterested" in trading Evan Longoria.

Longoria had arguably his best season in 2016, belting a career-high 36 homers to go with 98 RBI and a robust .521 slugging percentage. His trade value has never been higher and team president Matt Silverman said the rebuilding Rays are "open to everything." Longoria is owed a relatively affordable $99 million over the next six seasons. The Rays could always circle back, but at this point, it doesn't look like they have any plans to trade their franchise cornerstone.
Nov 5 - 10:11 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and plated the Rays' lone run in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

The 30-year-old has had a terrific season in the middle of the Rays lineup, slashing .276/.321/.526 with 36 homers and 97 RBI. He needs three more RBI over the weekend to hit the 100-RBI plateau for the first time since 2010.
Sep 30 - 11:28 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run and three runs scored as the Rays topped the Orioles 5-2 on Saturday.

As though Longoria's 35 home runs aren't enough, he's apparently added triples to his repertoire, too, as Saturday's was his fourth of the year. He's now homered in three straight games and has multiple hits in each of his last four. The 30-year-old is hitting .279/.325/.534 with those 35 homers, 94 RBI and 78 runs scored while playing in all but two of the Rays' games to date.
Sep 17 - 11:33 PM

Evan Longoria clubbed a two-run homer, but it wasn't enough to lead the Rays to victory over the Orioles on Friday.

Longoria tagged Ubaldo Jimenez for his two-run shot in the first inning, the second straight game that he homered in his first at-bat. He also added a pair of singles, finishing the night 3-for-4. It has been a banner season offensively for Longoria, slashing .278/.324/.526 with a career-best 34 long balls and 93 RBI.
Sep 16 - 10:07 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-5 with a home run and five RBI to help the Rays edge the Orioles 7-6 on Thursday.

After Orioles starter Yovani Gallardo walked the first two batters of the game, Longoria jumped on the first pitch he saw and smacked it for a three-run homer. He would later plate two with a single in the fourth inning as well. It's been a disappointing season for the Rays but less so for Longoria, who has 33 homers, 91 RBI and 74 runs scored on the year. The next homer will set a single-season best for the 30-year-old.
Sep 15 - 11:41 PM

Evan Longoria (hand) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

Longoria was hit in the right hand by a pitch on Monday and eventually left the game, but fortunately he managed to avoid serious injury. He's hitting third against Yovani Gallardo.
Sep 6 - 3:15 PM

Evan Longoria left Monday's game against the Orioles with a sore right hand.

Longoria took a Ubaldo Jimenez pitch off his right hand in the bottom of the first inning. He stayed in the game and scored but eventually had to come out. It seems like a day-to-day situation.
Sep 5 - 3:12 PM

Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Longoria notched an RBI two-bagger against J.A. Happ in the first inning. The double was his 35th of the season. Same amount he hit in 2015, just a month faster. This has been a grand season of resurgence for the veteran third baseman, who is slashing .282/.330/.537 with 31 homers and 85 RBI over 525 at-bats.
Sep 4 - 4:41 PM

Evan Longoria hit his 30th homer Wednesday as the Rays beat the Red Sox 4-3 in 11 innings.

Longoria's homer tied the game at 3 in the bottom of the eighth inning. The Rays went on to win on a Heath Hembree error in the 11th. Longoria reached 30 homers for the first time since 2013 and fourth time in his career. This could go down as his best season, which is quite a surprise given the way he trended downwards the previous two years.
Aug 24 - 11:14 PM

Evan Longoria ripped a two-run homer in Monday's loss to the Red Sox.

Longo's blast with one out in the ninth inning broke up the shutout, but the Rays were unable to get any closer. The third baseman has now gone deep six times over his last 15 games. It's been quite the bounce-back season in the power department for Longoria.
Aug 22 - 10:50 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in the Rays' 8-2 win over the Rangers on Saturday.

Longoria hit a solo homer off Rangers starter A.J. Griffin in the sixth inning after collecting an RBI single in the first. The home run was the 28th of the year for the 30-year-old, his highest single-season total since 2013 and the fourth time he's hit 28 or more in a year. It's no surprise, then, that Longoria is having one of the best offensive seasons of his career, batting .291/.343/.549 with 75 RBI and 65 runs scored.
Aug 20 - 9:54 PM

Evan Longoria had a nice day at the dish in Sunday's 12-3 win over the Yankees, doubling twice while driving in four runs.

Longoria picked up his first RBI knock with a run-scoring double in the first inning. His second double came in the fourth inning. That one cleared the bases. With that pair of two-baggers, the veteran third baseman has now notched 31 of them for the season as a whole. He is slashing a stupendous .289/.340/.540 with 26 homers and 70 RBI over 450 at-bats. He finished this weekend's series against the Yankees with seven hits in 11 at-bats.
Aug 14 - 6:16 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a walk in Friday’s loss to the Yankees.

Longoria now has three homers in his last seven games and 26 on the year. His power has dropped off in recent years, which caused him to fall on most draft boards this spring, but he now has a legitimate chance to surpass his career-high of 33 homers from 2009.
Aug 12 - 11:47 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-3 with a walk and a home run in Saturday's victory.

That's 24 home runs for the veteran third baseman. He is hitting .281/.330/.527 with 54 runs and 60 RBI in 423 at-bats. He could make a run at toppling his career high of 33 home runs set back in 2009.
