Rays' Longoria feeling good this spring as he connects for first HR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria homered for the first time this spring Wednesday against the Blue Jays. He also had a single in three at-bats, raising his spring average to .364 (8 for 22). 

Longoria also has one double, two runs and four RBI in nine spring games.

“Maybe it was me, maybe they were trying to keep me feeling good, keep my legs healthy, but I feel like it’s worked out a little bit better this year for me personally in terms of the way I feel,” Longoria said, per The Tampa Tribune. “Now it’s just trying to build on that the rest of the spring, play deeper in the game and get three or four at-bats.”


Rays 3B Evan Longoria appears destined to hit cleanup


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria appears to be penciled in the cleanup spot in the lineup, after manager Kevin Cash revealed that he's striving to have more of an everyday lineup once the season starts, per MLB.com.

Rays' Evan Longoria gives vote of confidence to new manager


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria gave a vote of confidence to new manager Kevin Cash on Tuesday, according to the Tampa Bay Times

"I just think there comes a time when it's just the right time for somebody new," Longoria said. While that may come off as an indictment of former manager Joe Maddon, Longoria stressed that is not the case. "That's no knock on Joe. Obviously he did so many great things for the franchise and so many great things for me as a player. But I guess all good things come to an end at some point."

Having Cash around should inject some excitement into the team, according to Longoria. "I think it's a great time for Kevin to be able to step in and kind of experience the sense of newness with a lot of people. And the guys who have been here are excited for what he's going to bring."

The 29-year-old hit .253/.320/.404 over 624 at-bats last year. 


Rays 3B Evan Longoria sustains bruised forearm in exhibition game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) Rays third baseman Evan Longoria left an exhibition game Tuesday in Japan for precautionary reasons after being hit by a pitch on his left forearm. Longoria was batting in the third inning of the sixth game in the Japan All-Star series when he suffered the injury.

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.

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.
