Longoria Out on the Field Early
No word whether Evan Longoria will play in the rubber game of the Rays’ series with the Yankees, but as I am writing this, the Rays third baseman is working out in left field with Rays trainer Ron Porterfield to see if his sore left hamstring is sound enough to play.
Among the drills they have gone through is one in which he had a harness around his waist to pull along Porterfield, who ran behind him but offered resistance. From up here in the press box, he looks like he’s going to be fine. I’ll be surprised if he does not start tonight.
