Evan Longoria drives in three Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Rays infielder Evan Longoria drove in three runs Friday against the Twins.

With the bases loaded in the third inning, Longoria cleared the bases with a double to center. He also singled later in the game. Longoria finished 2 for 4, with no runs scored and three RBI. 


Evan Longoria reaches five times Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria reached base five times Friday against the Tigers.

Longoria managed to double his first time up. In his second at-bat, Longoria belted a solo shot out to left field. He was hit by a pitch in the sixth, and walked his next two plate appearances. Longoria finished 2 for 2, with two runs scored and one RBI. He's hitting .265/.339/.405 over 343 at-bats.


Evan Longoria has 11 RBI in his last 14 games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria totaled his 37th RBI during Wednesday's 5-1 win against the Pirates. Longoria, who homered Tuesday, finished 1 for 4 with two runs.

Longoria is batting .268 (15 for 56) with three doubles, three home runs, 11 RBI, 10 runs and one stolen base in his last 14 games.


Evan Longoria starting to turn his season around


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(6/17/2014) Even with a slow start to his season, Evan Longoria ranks seventh among third basemen in standard Head-to-Head leagues and ninth in Rotisserie leagues. Among a relatively weak crop of third basemen, those rankings are not so impressive, but Longoria appears to be well on his way to re-establishing himself as an elite at the position.

Longoria has been missing power for most of this season, as he is slugging just .401, but as his flyball rate has increased in recent weeks, so has his rate of extra-base hits. He has hit a home run and two doubles over his last three games, and over his last 21 games, Longoria has posted a .275/.363/.475 slash line.

The one area where Longoria may not improve much is run production, as the Rays' lineup as a whole has struggled. That could prevent him from scoring or driving in more than 80 runs, and for that reason, I have dropped him from second to fourth in my third baseman rankings.

Stil, with improved plate discipline and no erosion in his contact rate, all Longoria needed was more power to approach his prior form and value. His year-to-date stats are still mediocre, so now is a good time to try to buy Longoria at a discount, before his numbers start to reflect his rebound.


Evan Longoria slugs eighth home run Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria went 2 for 4 with a home run and three RBI in his team's 7-3 loss to the Astros Saturday.

Longoria kicked off the scoring with an RBI single in the first inning and added a two-run home run in the fifth. Unfortunately for the Rays, the Astros strung together seven runs in between Longoria's key hits, and the Rays' offense wasn't able to add any more runs after the homer. He has hit .265/.330/.396 with eight home runs and 32 RBI in 268 at-bats.


Evan Longoria set to hit second Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Joe Maddon has gone back to an experiment he tried briefly in the summer of 2013 by batting slugger Evan Longoria second for the game Wednesday night for the Rays against Oakland. He last played that spot on July 31, 2013.

Longoria hasn't had a multi-hit game since May 11 and is just 3 for 26 since to lower his batting average from .282 to .257. His four home runs in 175 at-bats this season is also a disappointment.


Evan Longoria smashes third home run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria clubbed his third home run Friday against the White Sox.

Longoria came up big when it counted. With the game tied in the ninth inning, Longoria stepped to the plate against Matt Lindstrom. On the second pitch, Longoria hit a two-run shot to center to take the lead. He singled earlier in the game.

Longoria finished 2 for 5, with two runs scored and two RBI. He's hitting .315.


Evan Longoria goes yard, plates four runs in blowout win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria made his presence felt at the plate on Saturday, launching his second home run of the season in his team's 16-1 win over the Yankees.

Longoria took New York starter Ivan Nova deep for a two-run home run in the third inning. He drove in a run on sacrifice fly in the fifth inning and slapped an RBI single in the sixth. He finished 2 for 3 with two runs scored and four RBI. In 18 games, he is hitting .348 with two homers and 10 RBI in 66 at-bats.

Evan Longoria cranks out three hits in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria continued his recent success at the plate on Monday, recording three hits in a 4-2 loss to the Royals in Kansas City.

Longoria doubled in the second, singled in the sixth and reached on an infield single in the ninth. He finished 3 for 4, raising his batting average to .414 on the year. He has a hit in all but one of his eight games played.

Evan Longoria socks first home run


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria didn't hit his first home run of the season until the 12th game a year ago, but he didn't feel like waiting that long this time around.

Longoria took Blue Jays reliever Esmil Rogers deep in the seventh inning for a three-run blast to cap off a 7-2 win. He finished the game 2 for 4 with one run scored and three driven in, while striking out in each of his other two at-bats.

Longoria is hitting .400 through the season's first four games, with three runs scored and four driven in. He hit 32 home runs a year ago.

Evan Longoria ties Game 3 with three-run HR


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2013) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria provided a big blast in Monday's American League Division Series Game 3 against Boston. Longoria's three-run homer in the fifth inning off starter Clay Buchholz with two outs gave the Rays new life as they staved off elimination.

The 28-year-old has a hit in three of the four postseason games he's played this year. He hit just .269 in the regular season with 32 homers and 88 RBI, but he warmed up considerably down the stretch.
