Rays | Evan Longoria frustrated by power outage

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 07:29:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (wrist) is baffled by his lack of power this season, but he said a sore wrist that bothered him earlier in the season isn't the root of the problem. Longoria said the wrist feels a lot better after the four days off for the All-Star break. "It's just, I don't know … I told (manager Kevin) Cash the other day, I felt like I never played the game before."

Fantasy Tip: Longo's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) .262-9-42 line isn't great, but he can certainly rebound in a quick timeframe. He's at a low enough price to bank on that on FantasyScore.

Rays | Evan Longoria snaps slump

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 18:20:08 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria snapped an 0-for-20 slump at the plate Wednesday, July 22, with an RBI double in the fifth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) went 1-for-5 on the day, so he didn't instill much confidence in an imminent turnaround. FantasyScore owners should continue to stay away until Longoria strings a couple of hits together.

Rays | Evan Longoria mired in slump

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 20:29:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria was hitless in four at-bats Tuesday, July 21, against the Philadelphia Phillies, and he has managed just one hit over his past 23 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($3,800; or 7.6% of cap) has tailed off dramatically this season, and he is now hitting just .263 overall on the season. FantasyScore players would obviously do well to avoid him until he starts to snap out of it.

Rays | Evan Longoria will be DH

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 09:11:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria will serve as the designated hitter against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Sunday, July 5, and is batting third in the lineup. OF Jake Elmore will start at third base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is receiving a day off from the field but is still in the lineup and could be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore. Elmore ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has recorded only one hit in his last nine games and probably should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Rays | Evan Longoria's hit streak over

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:19:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria was hitless in four at-bats with a strikeout Tuesday, June 30, against the Cleveland Indians to snap a seven-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Longo ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) wrapped up June hitting .277 with three doubles, three homers and nine RBI with 25 strikeouts in 94 at-bats. He has been a decent mid-level FantasyScore option, but be careful of the Ks.

Rays | Evan Longoria still bothered by wrist

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 06:04:34 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (wrist) is still bothered by his sore left wrist, but he homered in his first at-bat Saturday, June 20, against the Cleveland Indians. Manager Kevin Cash said Longoria is not at risk of causing further damage by playing.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) had singled for his previous nine hits, as the wrist injury has caused a power outage. FantasyScore owners should wait to see a little more pop before investing in Longoria.

Rays | X-rays negative for Evan Longoria

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 20:40:41 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (wrist) had X-rays after the game Monday, June 15, against the Washington Nationals. X-rays were negative, and the team said he has a bruised left wrist.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) left the game after being hit by a pitch. If he misses time it would likely be Jake Elmore ($2,400; or 4.8% of cap) filling in at third base.

Rays | Evan Longoria leaves game

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 19:05:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (wrist) left the game Monday, June 15, against the Washington Nationals after being hit on the left wrist by a pitch.

Fantasy Tip: Itís uncertain how much time, if any, Longo ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) will miss as a result of the injury. FantasyScore players will want to avoid him until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Jake Elmore ($2,400; or 4.8% of cap) could see starts in Longoriaís absence.

Rays | Evan Longoria returns to the lineup

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 13:47:08 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (wrist) is batting third and playing third base against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was mired in a 6-for-33 slump with just three runs and two RBI over 11 games prior to the injury. He is worth returning to your seasonal lineups, but FantasyScore players shouldn't fear fading Longoria Wednesday. His name value likely extends beyond his fantasy value, too, as Longoria's numbers are closer to being a fringe starting third baseman than a top-tier one.

Rays | Evan Longoria expects to return Wednesday

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 14:28:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (wrist) took swings in the cages Tuesday, June 9, and is expecting to return to the lineup Wednesday, June 10. He's available to play late in the game Tuesday, as well.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure you don't have Longoria ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) in your FantasyScore lineups tonight. Check back tomorrow before inserting him. If Longoria is in there tomorrow, he sets up to be a nice play against the soft-tossing Jered Weaver.
