Evan Longoria blasted his 21st home run of the season, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Blue Jays on Saturday in Toronto.
Longoria's solo shot off R.A. Dickey tied the score at 3-3 to begin the sixth inning, but that wound up being the extent of the Rays offensive output for the afternoon. He also doubled, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4 to raise his season slash to .252/.320/.406 to go along with 87 RBI. Sep 13 - 3:58 PM

Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run as the Rays took an 8-5 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

Longoria's home run was too little, too late, as it came in the ninth inning off of Esmil Rogers. The third baseman has homered three times in his last seven games and now has 20 on the season along with 85 RBI and a .254/.322/.403 slash line. It is certainly a disappointing season but he is attempting to end the regular season on a positive note.

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 in Friday's win over the Orioles.

We've been looking for signs of life from Longoria for some time now. He homered a few days ago and doubled in Friday's contest. Those count as signs. Of sorts. In August, Longoria hit .252/.291/.420, which actually constituted one of his better months at the plate for 2014. Despite what's been mostly a struggle, Longoria's still collected 81 RBI and hit 18 home runs. He's now 28-years old and should theoretically have multiple years left in his prime. We're guessing this season is going to end up as an outlier, not a trend.

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a two-run home run, but the Rays were defeated by the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Longoria has been swinging a better bat over the last two weeks, now with three home runs since August 22. He knocked in a run with a single in the sixth and slugged a two-run homer in the eighth off of Dustin McGowan. Longoria now has 18 home runs, 81 RBI and a .254/.323/.398 batting line.
Sep 3 - 11:01 PM

Evan Longoria clubbed a solo home run and later added a sacrifice fly over four at-bats in Thursday's loss to the Orioles.

Longoria hit a line drive to left field that just escaped the fence at Camden Yards in the first inning, his 17th blast of the season. The third baseman has been hitting better lately, but still has a mediocre .255/.325/.399 slash line with 76 RBI.
Aug 28 - 10:39 PM

Evan Longoria finished with three singles in four at-bats in the Rays' 3-1 win against the Orioles on Wednesday.

Longoria neither scored a run nor knocked in a run, but he was the only player on either side with a three-hit night in what was a low-offense contest. The third baseman is slashing .255/.325/.394 with 16 home runs and 74 RBI.
Aug 27 - 10:06 PM

Evan Longoria was used in the designated hitter spot for the second straight day Tuesday due to some minor right forearm soreness.

Longo said the soreness "just kind of crept up on me," but he added that it's "something I won't go on the DL for, won't miss any time for." Longoria entered play Tuesday batting a disappointing .249/.321/.388 with 16 homers and 72 RBI this season.
Aug 26 - 10:03 PM

Evan Longoria hit a solo home run and a two-run double against the Blue Jays on Friday.

He hit the home run, number twenty-one, in the second inning against Marcus Stroman. He went on to add a two-run double in the sixth inning. Longoria is slashing .250/.323/.386 on the season, with 21 home runs and 70 RBI.
Aug 22 - 10:57 PM

Evan Longoria went 0-for-3 in Wednesday's 6-0 loss to the Tigers, snapping his eight-game hitting streak.

Longoria has been attempting to bulk up his uncharacteristically pedestrian numbers, but Tigers starter Rick Porcello was dominant on Wednesday, rendering the third baseman hitless on the evening. Longoria still has about six more weeks to pick up his lackluster .252/.325/.389 slash line.
Aug 20 - 10:02 PM

Evan Longoria singled and knocked in both of the Rays' runs in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

The Rays couldn't get much going against Hiroki Kuroda. Longoria put the Rays on the board early, driving in a run with a ground out in the first inning. He then brought the Rays to within one run with a seventh-inning RBI single to make it 3-2. The third baseman has been swinging a better bat as of late, as he's now on a seven-game hitting streak. On the season, he carries a .253/.323/.391 slash line with 15 home runs and 66 RBI.
Aug 17 - 5:18 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and a two-run home run as the Rays defeated the Rangers on Thursday.

Longoria extended the Rays' lead to 3-0 with his third-inning RBI single, and later boosted his club's lead to 5-2 with a fifth-inning two-run home run off of Robbie Ross. The third baseman hasn't had a great 2014, as he has 15 home runs, 63 RBI, and an uncharacteristic .253/.325/.395 slash line.
Aug 14 - 11:15 PM

Evan Longoria hit a first inning home run to help lead the Rays to a 10-3 win over the Angels.

The homer, a two-run shot, was Longoria's only hit of the game. He finished 1-for-4. He hit the tater off of Angels starter C.J. Wilson, who only lasted into the second inning. In addition to the home run, Longoria scored twice and knocked in two. In what's been a bit of a down year, Longoria's slashing .257/.334/.397.
Aug 3 - 12:31 AM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in a losing effort against the Angels on Friday.

A pair of runs actually scored on his single in the fifth inning, the second of which came across as Longoria was cut down between first and second base. With the two-hit effort, he's now slashing .257/.333/.391 on the season to compliment his 12 homers and 54 RBI.
Aug 1 - 11:00 PM

Evan Longoria delivered a go-ahead three-run double in a 6-4 win over the Red Sox on Friday.

The Red Sox held a 3-2 lead going into the bottom of the seventh inning, but Ben Zobrist singled home a run (with some help from Jonny Gomes) to tie things up and Longoria eventually put the Rays in front with a bases-loaded double down the left field line. The 28-year-old has driven in nine runs over six games since the All-Star break.
Jul 25 - 10:57 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a three-run double in Friday's win over the Twins.

With the bases-clearing double, Longoria now has 591 RBI for his career. That puts him just one behind Carl Crawford's franchise record. The 28-year-old had a disappointing first half, but fantasy owners will have to hope that he can find his power stroke down the stretch. He's currently sporting the lowest fly ball rate of his career, so it's no sure thing.
