From beat writer Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times comes word that Rays third baseman Evan Longoria underwent a minor surgical procedure in early November to help relieve “the occasionally painful Morton’s neuroma condition in his left foot.”
Longoria was able to resume workouts shortly after the surgery and is expected to be at 100 percent health when spring training opens for the Rays later this month in Charlotte County, Florida.
The 26-year-old posted a .244/.355/.495 batting line in 574 plate appearances last year for Tampa Bay, homering 31 times and driving in 99 runs. He should have no complications with the foot this season.
