Evan Longoria was scratched from the Rays' lineup Sunday due to neck stiffness.

The Rays are surely just being cautious here. Consider Longoria, who is 8-for-28 with one homer this spring, day-to-day.
Mar 19 - 10:56 AM

Evan Longoria (illness) is scheduled to play third base Tuesday and DH on Wednesday.

These will be the first Grapefruit League games of the spring for Longoria, who came down with a high fever last week. The star third baseman should be 100 percent for Opening Day.

Evan Longoria (illness) was back in the Rays' clubhouse on Wednesday.

Longoria missed the last two days of camp after getting sick on Sunday night, but it was never a long-term concern. He should be good to go now.
Feb 22 - 8:46 AM

Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that Evan Longoria still had a high fever this morning.

Longoria was also held out of Rays' camp on Monday, but it's not a long-term concern. He should be back to normal soon.
Feb 21 - 1:23 PM

Evan Longoria was absent from Rays camp Monday due to a minor illness.

There is a bug going around the club's spring training facilities. Longoria should be back in action by the middle of the week.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Sep 16, 2016 10:07:00 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.

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.
Tue, Sep 6, 2016 03:15:00 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.
Mon, Sep 5, 2016 03:12:00 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.
