Rays | Evan Longoria produces at plate

Tue, 26 May 2015 22:15:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria went 3-for-5 with two RBI against the Seattle Mariners Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is currently on a 10-game hitting streak and has nine RBI during that span. Longoria could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore on most nights.

Rays | Evan Longoria likely to stay in third spot

Tue, 12 May 2015 13:38:10 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria is likely to stick in the third spot in the batting order for now, according to manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: A move up one spot from cleanup to third in the order won't drastically affect Longoria's ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) fantasy value. Against New York Yankees starter Nathan Eovaldi tonight, Longoria is an acceptable start in daily lineups, as Eovaldi has been vulnerable to the long ball this season with the Yanks.

Rays | Evan Longoria owns CC Sabathia

Mon, 11 May 2015 13:28:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria is 24-for-58 (.414) with six home runs, eight doubles, 14 RBI and a 1.390 OPS in his career against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to overlook Longoria's ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) career numbers against Sabathia, who is off to a terrible start this year and is very hittable, especially against right-handed hitters like Longoria. Longoria is a very strong play tonight for daily gamers.

Rays | Evan Longoria returns to the lineup

Fri, 08 May 2015 12:57:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (illness) is batting fourth as the designated hitter against the Texas Rangers Friday, May 8. Longoria was a late scratch from the game with the flu Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has upped his game of late, as he is riding a 15-for-40 stretch with seven runs, two home runs, five RBI and a .375/.479/.600 slash line. He is a nice value play for FantasyScore players Friday, and as long as he is having success at the dish.

Rays | Evan Longoria scratched with the flu

Thu, 07 May 2015 14:12:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (illness) was a late scratch from the game against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Longoria ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Thursday. A replacement hasn't been named yet, but whoever draws in isn't likely to fit in your FantasyScore plans. Longoria is off to respectable start with 16 runs, three home runs and a .284/.400/.474 slash line, but fantasy owners would love to see an uptick in RBI, as he has just eight on the season.

Rays | Evan Longoria ends drought

Thu, 07 May 2015 07:16:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria ended a 26-game drought with two home runs Wednesday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Longo ($4,400, 8.8% of your cap) had a pretty pedestrian .272-1-6 line entering the game. One good sign is his 18 walks to 20 strikeouts. His walk-to-strikeout ratio has never been good, but he's making a lot more contact. That bodes well for his midrange price on FantasyScore.

Rays | Evan Longoria reaches milestone

Tue, 05 May 2015 22:39:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria posted his 1,000th career hit in the game Tuesday, May 5, against the Boston Red Sox. He is third on the team's all-time list, 16 behind former 2B/OF Ben Zobrist for second place.

Fantasy Tip: While the milestone was nice, Longo has managed just one homer and six RBI with a rather pedestrian .402 slugging percentage. At $4,400 (or 8.8% of cap) he could re-emerge as a must-start FantasyScore option if he can find his power stroke again.

Rays | Evan Longoria ends RBI drought

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 19:25:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a 12-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, April 24, ending a 12-game RBI drought.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($4,800) has just three RBIs in 17 games this year to go along with one homer and a .218 average. He needs to start driving in runs with a lot more consistency before he is worth considering at FantasyScore.

Rays | Evan Longoria the DH Friday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:36:42 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (hip) is serving as the designated hitter and batting fourth in the lineup against New York Yankees SP Adam Warren Friday, April 17. 2B Logan Forsythe is starting at third base and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) was hit by a pitch and had to leave the game early Thursday. He hopes to return to third base Saturday. He should be a fine third base option for FantasyScore owners while going up against Warren and the Yanks.

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 09:03:33 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (hip) expects to play Friday, April 17, after being hit in the left hip by a pitch Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: If Longoria ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) plays tonight, he should be a fine option for your FantasyScore lineups against New York Yankees starter Adam Warren.
