Rays' Evan Longoria to DH Friday night against Yankees
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Evan Longoria is in the Rays' lineup against the Yankees as a designated hitter, according to the Tampa Bay Tribune.

Longoria said he feels fine and could return to third base on Saturday.
Logan Forsythe will fill in defensively for Longoria at third base.

Rays to use Opening Day lineup vs. Tigers on Saturday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/4/15) Rays manager Kevin Cash told reporters that his lineup against the Tigers on Saturday, will be the same he uses on Opening Day, and against right-handed pitchers, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
The club will roll with John Jaso, Steven Souza, Asdrubal Cabrera, Evan Longoria, James Loney, Desmond Jennings, Logan Forsythe, Rene Rivera and Kevin Kiermaier.
Against left-handed pitchers, Cash told reporters he will use Brandon Guyer at the leadoff spot, Jennings and Loney will flip spots in the order, Forsythe will serve as a designated hitter and Tim Beckham will be at second base, per the Tampa Tribune.
|2014 summary: Evan Longoria had been one of the more dependable third base options over the previous six seasons, especially as a source of home run power. Though Longoria clocked in as the eighth-ranked third baseman in Fantasy value, he was something of a letdown for his owners who were hoping for 30-plus homers. He was off his game for most of the season, hitting 12 home runs through the end of July, though he picked up his pace with 10 homers over the final two months. Though Longoria hit just .253, he bolstered his value with 91 RBI and 83 runs.|
Playing time status: Longoria will continue to be a middle-of-the-order presence for the Rays and will look to post his third straight 160-plus game season.
2015 outlook: If nothing else, Longoria should rack up plenty of plate appearances, but even a slight rebound in power should nudge him back into the top five at his position. That makes him someone to draft within the first three or four rounds in standard mixed leagues.
