Evan Longoria cracked a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Longoria's solo sixth-inning homer would be the only runs the Rays scored against a locked in Marcus Stroman. It was his fifth of the season and his second in as many days. The veteran third baseman also notched a single to finish 2-for-4. Through his first 99 at-bats, he is slashing .242/.272/.455. He should continue to serve as a solid, veteran fantasy option moving forward.
May 1 - 4:02 PM

Evan Longoria hit his fourth home run in a win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Longoria connected for a solo blast in the sixth inning, his only hit in four at-bats. April hasn't been kind to the 30-year-old, who's hitting .232/.263/.421 in the month. Historically, April has been his best month, so hopefully he bucks the trend and continues to get better as the season goes along.
Apr 30 - 9:40 PM

Evan Longoria provided the Rays’ only offense on Friday with a solo home run.

It was his first home run of the season. Longoria has managed to stay healthy over the last three seasons, but he owns a .264 batting average during that time and doesn’t offer the power upside he once did. The name recognition is still there, but he might not be a top-10 fantasy third baseman at this point.
Apr 8 - 10:04 PM

Evan Longoria said Thursday that he will be ready for the first game of the regular season.

Longoria has been held out of the Rays' last three Grapefruit League games, but he told reporters that he is simply getting in some extra rest before Opening Day. Nothing to worry about here, apparently.
Mar 31 - 9:44 AM

Evan Longoria is out of the Rays' Grapefruit League lineup again on Thursday.

Longoria was also held out Tuesday and Wednesday, but Rays manager Kevin Cash insists there's nothing wrong with his star third baseman. Longoria did foul a ball off his right shin a couple weeks ago, but we'll consider him a lock for Opening Day until we hear otherwise.
Mar 31 - 9:27 AM

Evan Longoria is out of the Rays' Grapefruit League lineup for the second straight day Wednesday.

Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that nothing is wrong with Longoria and he just wanted some extra rest before the start of the season. It doesn't sound like there's anything to worry about here.
Mar 30 - 8:45 AM

Evan Longoria (shin) is not in the Rays' lineup Friday.

Longoria exited Thursday's game after fouling a ball off his right shin. He had been expected to serve as the designated hitter Friday but is apparently too sore. Ultimately, though, he's expected to be fine.
Mar 18 - 8:28 AM

Evan Longoria (shin) could serve as a designated hitter in Friday's game.

Longoria departed Thursday's game with a right shin contusion, but he's walking around fine and didn't require X-rays. The Rays' third baseman has picked up just five hits in 22 at-bats this spring.
Mar 17 - 4:52 PM

Evan Longoria left Thursday's game against the Phillies with a right shin contusion.

He exited in the first inning after fouling a ball off his right leg. Richie Shaffer took over at third base after his departure. Longoria has had a quiet spring to this point with just five hits in 22 at-bats. Until the Rays update his status, we'll consider him day-to-day.
Mar 17 - 2:03 PM

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.

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.
Thu, Sep 24, 2015 11:20:00 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.

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.
Mon, Sep 7, 2015 04:13:00 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.
