Earlier today, Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria was placed on the 15-day DLwith an oblique strain. The stud 3B left Saturday’s game against Baltimore for pain in his side. After an evaluation, the team decided it would be best to put him on the disabled list. Longoria is expected to miss at least three weeks and even the entire month of April while recovering.
Sean Rodriguez looks to get the everyday gig at 3B and he filled in for Longoria today going 1-3 with a double. Ben Zobrist as a result dropped down in the order to the 3rd spot and B.J. Upton batted leadoff.
