Evan Longoria has raised his average to .271 after going 4-for-4 in the Rays win over the Blue Jays on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Longoria is starting to come out of his offensive slump with his four hits. He still only has 1 HR and 4 RBI, so you may be able to buy low before his power picks up.

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 in Wednesday's win over the Red Sox, snapping an 0-for-12 slump.

Fantasy Impact: That is some good news for Longoria owners who have been dissappointed this season. Longoria can be a streaky hitter and faces a Blue Jay staff that is 8th in the league in ERA this weekend, giving some promise for him to improve his fantasy performance.

After going 0-for-3 in the Rays loss to the Red Sox, Evan Longoria's average has dropped to .186 on the season. He has not driven in a run since April 11th and only has two on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Longoria had seemed to be hitting better towards the end of the spring, but that has not carried into the season. Given his slow start, he could be a good buy low candidate before he breaks out of his slump.

Evan Longoria was removed from Thursday's game after being hit on the left hip by Marco Estrada.

Fantasy Impact: Normally, being hit in that location wouldn't mean an extended absence, but more should be determined this evening. Longoria has been quite healthy over the last couple of years

Rays 3B Evan Longoria has had a slow start to the season as his batting average dropped to .192 in Tuesday's win.

Fantasy Impact: Suprisingly, the Rays are 5-3 despite Longoria's slow offensive start. Should the offense around him continue to improve, it will help Longoria in the long run.

Evan Longoria hit a solo HR off Chris Tillman in the 7th inning in today's opening game against the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact: Longoria will be expected to carry the offensive load for the Rays this season. His past durability concerns are also a thing of the past as he played every game last season.

Evan Longoria hits 2nd HR

Longoria is now batting .286 on the spring with 2 HR's and 7 RBI's.

Fantasy Impact: He may be a little under the radar in fantasy leagues right now with the emergence of other 3B like Machado, Donaldson, and Arenado. He should be a top five 3B and has become much more durable over the last few years.

Evan Longoria is now batting .361 on the spring after going 2 for 3 with a HR on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Longoria has been between the 5th-7th 3B drafted in mixed leagues so far. He may be a bit undervalued due to his decrease in batting average the last 2 seasons.

Evan Longoria went 2 for 3 with an RBI in the Rays loss to the Phillies on Thursday. He has raised his spring average to .286.

Fantasy Impact: Longoria will be expected again to carry the offensive load for the Rays. He may be a little undervalued this season with his declining batting average over the last few seasons. He is a steady 3B and should still be drafted among the top 5 at that position in mixed leagues.

3B Evan Longoria is likely to bat fourth this season, according to manager Kevin Cash. He has also stated that he would like to use more consistent lineups then the Rays have done in prior years with Longoria. (Source: Roger Mooney, Tampa Tribune)

Fantasy Impact: The Rays will still struggle to score runs and get on base in front of Longoria, with Adrubal Cabrera currently being discussed as their # 3 hitter. However, this could still add a few more RBI's for Longoria.
