Evan Longoria went 3-for-4 and drove in three runs in Wednesday's dramatic 8-7 walkoff victory over the Tigers.

He snaked an infield single in the first inning that drove in the game's first run. He plated two more runs with a single to left field in the fourth inning. Today's strong game boosts his .237/.343/.390 slash line into the realm of respectability. He has produced two home runs with eight runs scored and nine RBI in 15 games.

Evan Longoria chipped in with an RBI single Saturday in the Rays’ loss to the Red Sox.

It came off Chris Sale in the third inning. That was Longoria’s only hit of the day and one of just three all afternoon for the Rays. Longoria has sprinkled a few hits here and there but is batting just .227 for the year with 18 strikeouts in 44 at-bats. The Rays have now lost four of their last five.

Evan Longoria clobbered his second home run of the season on Friday, helping to power the Rays to a 10-8 victory over the Blue Jays.

Longoria's two-run blast was part of a five-run onslaught in the first inning that chased Jays' starter Francisco Liriano from the ballgame after recording just one out. He finished the night 1-for-4 and also drew a pair of walks and scored twice. Longoria has hit the ground running in 2017, slashing .313/.455/.688 with a pair of homers and five RBI.

Evan Longoria won't play in the Rays' final exhibition game Friday due to a stiff neck.

It's something that's bothered Longoria off and on for a couple weeks now. However, it looks like the Rays are just being extra cautious here, as they fully expect him to be available for Sunday's season opener against the Yankees.

Evan Longoria (neck) is back in the Rays' Grapefruit League lineup on Monday.

Longoria was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to some mild stiffness in his neck. It was obviously nothing serious.

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.
Feb 27 - 11:17 AM

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.
