Rays' Evan Longoria connects for three-run HR off Scott Kazmir
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria connected for a three-run homer off Scott Kazmir in the fifth inning of Friday's game against the Athletics, helping propel Tampa Bay to a 5-2 win.
"He was throwing the ball really well, and it was a little bit different than what we had seen in the video," Longoria said, per MLB.com. "He was up as high as 96 [mph], which you knew he had that, and you know he was capable of doing those things, but it was something that we hadn't really seen.
"There were two strikes, and I was just trying to put the ball in play. I had a similar situation earlier in the game, where he threw two fastballs and they were both down in the zone, and I grounded out to third. The plan was just to try and drive the ball into the outfield and score one run, and I ended up getting three out of it."
Longoria, who went 2 for 3 with one walk and one stolen base, has a .270/.345/.473/.818 slash line through 20 May games. He also has three doubles, four home runs and 17 RBI this month.

|(5/18/15) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria went 2 for 6 with three RBI in his team's 11-3 win over the Twins on Sunday.
It's just the second time this season Longoria has racked up three RBI in a game, as he had managed just a total of four RBI through the end of April. He's played third base for the entirety of eight straight games but is just 6 for 33 with one double during that stretch. Longoria and the Rays are off Monday before opening a two-game series in Atlanta on Tuesday.

|(5/10/15) Third baseman Evan Longoria returns to the field for the Rays for Sunday's game against Texas.
Longoria had started at DH the last two games. He also makes his second straight start in the three-hole in the order after batting cleanup 29 times this season.

Rays third baseman Evan Longoria cracks fourth home run of 2015
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/10/15) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria went 2 for 3 at the plate in Tampa Bay's 7-2 win over the Rangers on Saturday.
Longoria did his damage in the first inning when he ripped a 1-0 pitch from Ross Detwiler over the center field wall for a three-run shot, his fourth of the season. Longoria moved his average to .304 with 12 RBI in 102 at-bats this season.
Rays 3B Evan Longoria only misses one game
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/8/15) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria made it back into the lineup for Friday's game vs. Texas after sitting out Thursday due to an illness. However, he was at DH on Friday and not third base.
Right-hander Yovani Gallardo is on the mound Friday for Texas. Longoria is batting .234 with three home runs, seven RBI, eight doubles and 12 runs in 27 games against right-handers in 2015.
He is batting .365 with two home runs, five doubles, six RBI, eight walks and 10 runs in his last 14 games.
|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.
