Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (foot) left the game early due to irritation of the plantar fasciitis issue in his foot.
Fantasy Tip: We wouldn't be surprised to see Longoria take some time off to let his foot issue clear up, and a disabled list stint is definitely not out of the question. He'll likely need surgery at some point, but he'll proabably wait until after the season. It'll be a matter of pain tolerance in-season, much like what Albert Pujols is going through. If Longo needs a DL stint, Sean Rodriguez would likely man the hot corner in his stead.
