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

Evan Longoria (forearm) doesn't expect to miss much time.

Longoria was pulled from Wednesday night's extra-innings win over the Mariners after experiencing tightness in his left forearm during an 11th-inning at-bat. He'll likely sit out Thursday afternoon's series finale, but this doesn't sound like an overly serious issue. "It's something I've been dealing with," Longoria said Wednesday. "Just sore. Every time I check swing it gets flared up. ... It's a day-to-day thing."

Evan Longoria left Wednesday's win over the Mariners with tightness in his left forearm.

Longoria told reporters that he felt the discomfort in his 11th-inning at-bat -- what would be his final at-bat of the night. The third baseman finished 1-for-4 with a double, two walks, and a run scored as the Rays topped the visiting M's in extras. He will be reevaluated by the Rays' medical team Thursday.

Evan Longoria is back in the Rays' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Diamondbacks.

Longoria took his first day off of the season Tuesday for what he called "total body soreness." The star third baseman is batting third against Arizona right-hander Archie Bradley in his return to action Wednesday.
Jun 8 - 1:06 PM

Evan Longoria said he's out of the Rays' lineup Tuesday due to "total body soreness."

It'll be the first day off this season for the star third baseman. Taylor Motter is filling in at the hot corner and batting leadoff versus Arizona right-hander Zack Greinke. Longoria fouled a pitch off his shin over the weekend and also took a hard grounder off his knee, but they're ultimately minor issues.
Jun 7 - 7:17 PM

Evan Longoria is out of the Rays' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks.

Jun 7 - 6:10 PM

Evan Longoria homered twice Sunday in the Rays' 7-5 victory over the Twins.

Longoria went deep in the second inning off Twins starter Tyler Duffey and then tagged Twins reliever Brandon Kintzler in the eighth. He also hit an RBI single in the ninth against Kevin Jepsen, finishing 3-for-4 with a walk, three runs scored, and three runs batted in. Logan Morrison also enjoyed a two-homer day against the battered Minnesota pitching staff.
Jun 5 - 6:01 PM

Evan Longoria will bat second Saturday against the Twins.

Longoria hasn't hit out of the No. 2 spot since 2014. The Rays have lost eight of 10 and 11 of their last 14. Maybe moving Longoria down a spot will spark the team's dormant offense. Longoria leads Tampa Bay with 11 HR and 30 RBI this year.
Jun 4 - 1:59 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Thursday's loss to the Twins.

Longoria had an RBI single in the third inning before blasting a two-run shot in the fifth. The home run was his 10th of the year, giving him 29 RBI and 28 runs scored. A recent hot stretch -- Longoria is 11-for-23 with three doubles and two homers during a six-game hitting streak -- has the veteran third baseman's line up to .273/.319/.493 overall.
Jun 3 - 1:38 AM

Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

Longoria came through with an RBI single against Nathan Eovaldi in the third inning. It would provide the Rays' only run of the game. The veteran third baseman is hitting .254/.301/.461 with nine homers and 25 RBI across 193 at-bats.
May 29 - 4:05 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI as the Rays beat the Yankees 9-5 on Saturday.

Longoria connected on a Michael Pineda pitch for a two-run shot in the second inning. The homer was his ninth of the season, giving him 24 RBI and 26 runs scored. The 30-year-old is slashing .254/.302/.466 overall.
May 28 - 7:48 PM

Evan Longoria hit his eighth home run of the season in a loss to the Tigers on Saturday.

Longoria's solo homer in the sixth inning was the only offense the Rays could muster against Tigers starter Michael Fulmer. It was his second homer during a nine-game hitting streak during which he's 13-for-38 (.342) with five doubles and nine runs scored. The veteran third baseman is hitting .258/.303/.485 in 40 games this year.
May 21 - 8:23 PM

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.
