During last night’s game, Evan Longoria tagged up from third base on what was a simple sac fly. But what happened next should be a little scary for Rays fans.
As he broke for home, Longo had what appeared to be either a look of pain or a strained look on his face. He was also noticeably limping as he scampered home. Here’s the video (via Sun Sports)…
This doesn’t mean that there has been a setback. We all knew Longo wasn’t going to be 100% when he returned. But he has played in ten of the past 11 days, and this was the first time we have seen an obvious strain in his running.
So don’t be surprised if Longo gets the night off tonight (although he will fight that, playing near his hometown and with his family in the stands). And it also would be surprising if Longoria is playing third base anytime soon.
