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.
