Evan Longoria collected his 21st homer and his 35th double Thursday against the Marlins.
Longoria had his best month of the season in September, hitting .286/.339/.514 with five homers as the Rays drifted out of any sort of postseason contention. His overall numbers are better than last year's, and he's provided a nice return for his salary, given that he's still making a modest $11 million. Still, it no longer seems like he's truly capable of leading the Rays. Oct 1 - 11:00 PM

Evan Longoria went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and a double versus the Red Sox on Thursday.

Longoria hasn't nearly reached his past heights this year, but at least he seems to have arrested his decline. He's batting .272 and slugging .439 this year after finishing last season at .253 and .404, respectively.
Sep 24 - 11:20 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with three RBI in a loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

It wasn't the sexiest three-RBI night for the third baseman, as two of his runs batted in came by way of harmless fly balls to the outfield. The third RBI of the evening actually came on an error by outfielder Rajai Davis. Longoria is having another steady-if-unspectacular season, batting .273/.335/.437 with 19 homers, 67 RBI and 59 runs scored in the middle of the Rays lineup.
Sep 9 - 1:29 AM

Evan Longoria finished 3-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in the Rays' defeat of the Tigers on Monday.

Longoria singled in the first inning, belted a two-run shot in the fourth inning, and added another single for good measure in the fifth. He's been on a nice power spell for the last couple of weeks and looks capable of a very strong finish for Tampa Bay.
Sep 7 - 4:13 PM

Evan Longoria (forearm) is back in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

Longoria had to exit Saturday's game with a bruised forearm, but he's ready to give it a go a day later. He's hit three homers over his last three contests.
Sep 6 - 9:57 AM

Evan Longoria was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Yankees with a bruised forearm.

Longoria was drilled by a pitch in the third inning, and hung around for another couple of frames before making his exit. He could be ready to rejoin the Rays lineup as early as Sunday.
Sep 5 - 3:52 PM

Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

Longoria took Yankees rookie Luis Severino to school in the sixth inning, launching a solo home run to put the Rays on the board. The 29-year-old third baseman's heating up as the weather cools off. Friday's homer was his fifth in his last nine games. For the season, he's hitting .268/.321/.431 with 18 homers and 62 RBI.
Sep 4 - 9:56 PM

Evan Longoria hit a pair of home runs, but it wasn't enough in Wednesday's 11-inning, 7-6 loss versus the Orioles.

Longoria smacked a two-run home run in the middle of a four-run third inning against Kevin Gausman. He then tacked on what proved to be an important -- though ultimately inconsequential -- insurance run with a solo home run off the foul pole in left field off of Darren O'Day. Longoria has gone yard three times in his last three games and now has 17 on the year with 61 RBI and a .268/.329/.426 triple-slash line.
Sep 2 - 11:03 PM

Evan Longoria clubbed his 15th home run of the season in a 1-for-4 effort on Monday as the Rays beat the Orioles.

Longoria extended the Rays' lead to 5-0, taking Wei-Yin Chen deep in the fifth inning. Though his numbers are still above-average compared to league averages, the 29-year-old third baseman is near the end of another season that ranks as mediocre by his own standards. Longoria has a .267/.328/.415 triple-slash line with 58 RBI.
Aug 31 - 10:33 PM

Evan Longoria went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the A's.

Longoria couldn't find any traction against A's starter Kevin Graveman on Sunday, or the A's in general during this weekend series. The veteran third baseman is hit-less in his last 12 at-bats. For the season, he's slashing .270/.333/.412 with 13 homers and 55 RBI.
Aug 23 - 7:47 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Mets.

Longoria's eighth-inning homer off Mets reliever Tyler Clippard put the Rays up 3-2, but the bullpen would relinquish that advantage with two runs allowed in the ninth inning. Tough loss aside, the veteran third baseman is quietly starting to heat up. Not only is he working on a seven-game hitting streak, he's also compiled multi-hit games in four of those seven contests and has homered in each of his last two games. For the season, he's slashing .281/.349/.443 with 13 home runs and 49 RBI.
Aug 7 - 10:25 PM

Evan Longoria finished 1-for-4 in Tuesday's rout of the Tigers, slugging a solo home run.

Longoria kickstarted a five-run eighth inning to blow the Tigers out of the water, taking Neftali Feliz out to right-center for a solo home run. The third baseman is on a modest six-game hitting streak, batting .268/.337/.420 with 11 home runs and 44 RBI on the year.
Jul 28 - 10:57 PM

Evan Longoria hit a solo home run, his only success in four at-bats, on Sunday as the Rays fell to the Orioles.

Longoria hit the first of back-to-back solo home runs with Logan Forsythe off of Wei-Yin Chen, helping bring the Rays within striking distance. It's his first dinger since July 7 and only his 10th of the year in another mediocre season. Longoria is batting .265/.333/.408 with 43 RBI.
Jul 26 - 3:59 PM

Evan Longoria went 1-for-5 with an RBI double in Wednesday afternoon's loss to the Phillies.

Longoria hit his RBI two-bagger in the fifth inning. It would be his only hit of the game. He also committed his seventh error of the season, one of three errors that the Rays made on the day. The month of July has been a house of horrors for the face of the franchise, as he's slashing just .212/.246/.303 over 71 at-bats since the calendar turned over. This has been the worst month of the season for the third baseman and his current value couldn't be much lower at this point.
Jul 22 - 5:30 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

Longoria also struck out once in the contest. The veteran face of the Rays is hitting .281/.352/.423 with nine homers, 40 RBI and 38 runs scored. He might not be the offensive powerhouse that he once was, but he's been steady (if unspectacular) across 310 at-bats this season.
